Around Here :: Early Autumn

Por aqui estamos no princípio do Outono, a altura do ano de que mais gosto.

Ontem, a pedido do Rodrigo, fomos apanhar bolotas ao parque. Quando chegámos a casa, lembrei-me de lhe propor que fizéssemos uma “nature table” outonal. Ele, que vibra tanto com as estações quanto eu própria, ficou entusiasmadíssimo com a ideia. Corremos o nosso jardim à procura de sinais de Outono e depois dispusemos tudo em cima do aparar da casa-de-jantar.

Estes rituais sazonais continuam a ser muito importantes para mim e fico contente que o Rodrigo também lhes ache graça. Gosto que ele seja sensível ao mundo que o rodeia e que se entusiasme com estes pequenos (grandes) acontecimentos do dia-a-dia!

Around here it’s early autumn, my favourite time of the year.

Yesterday Rodrigo asked me to go hunting for acorns in the park. When we got home I suggested we made an autumnal nature table. He is as crazy about seasonal changes as I am and was really excited with this idea. We raided our garden for signs of autumn and then we made a little display on top of the dining room sideboard.

These seasonal rituals still play a very important role in my life and I’m really pleased that Rodrigo also gets a kick out of them. I like how sensitive he is to what’s around him and that he notices and takes pleasure in these little (yet so large) everyday occurrences!

    Agora que aqui (Portugal) estamos a entrar na Primavera é muito bom “sentir” um pouco da minha estão preferida do ano: o Outono. Bjs
