… and other things that has been happening this month.
Autumn, not necessarily in New York, but here, in a small town in the middle of Norway. Everything’s same though – people in thick jackets, leaves gracefully falling down from the trees and covering streets and parcels and calluna in all the garden shops. Let’s add julebrus and pinnekjøtt all over local grocery stores and you have typical Norwegian autumn.
But not everything is like in a rom-com from a an autumnal New York – we discovered we might have mouses (rats?) in our attic. The attic is extremely small and all covered in isolation, but we did find some old, nasty mouse traps. We bought couple of new ones, but it seems like our enemy is very smart. One trap got the food stolen, the other one… dissapeared. I guess it will take time to get rid of the rodent (s).
Other than that it’s just getting cold and dark very fast. When I’m out on the way to work at 6:30 am, then it’s still stars and moon on the sky, which is quite weird and then I don’t even notice when the day starts, obviously, because I’m still at work. I remember back in the days when I used to go to the uni in Hamar and I sometimes went to uni when it was dark and came home when it was dark … usual thing here in Norway.
For me autumn equals jazz. That’s why I’m sharing those two lovely playlists – I hope you’ll like them too. This plus some candles and hot tea and you have a perfect autumnish evening. I recommend this, especially to those who, like me, struggle with stress everyday.
I hope you all have a chance to have couple of cozy evenings like that. It’s very important to treat ourselves important – however dumb it sounds. I won’t do any autumn decor blog or any autumn routines, because there’re tons of things like that already on the internet, but I may find couple of cozy & autumnal Norwegian poems for the future posts. Stay tuned!
