November Sunday.

November makes for perfect Sundays. Sleeping in late, having a delicious Irish Breakfast and then watching costume dramas the whole day. I have a whole set of them, a wonderful gift from the Irishman on his latest visit.
I feel no guilt whatsoever about not setting a foot outside into the dreary Scandinavian autumn. Outside it is dark, wet and uninviting.
Below the continuous update on my Birch tree. It has lost most of it's former elegance and is now standing half bare. I guess it is only a couple of weeks away from the culmination of this installation of my progressive photography.

Ack and then progressive snow piles? ;)

Enjoy your cozy indoor Sunday, my friend. :)

I miss the Irish breakfast. And yes, I agree, indoors is the only place to be now! We still have nice sunshine throughout the day! Only at night it turns a little chilly. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I clicked on the IB link. I'm starting to go mad for fried eggs, and black pudding. Oh, dear!

Sounds like a perfect day. I was craving Pride And Prejudice last night. Perhaps it does have something to do with November!

much love

I love costume dramas. I could watch them over and over.

I understand how you feel about the dreary days. I try to remember that with each dreary day we are closer to spring and to the time of renewal and new blessings.

I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your Sunday. I love Sundays too! They are very relaxing. ;-)

Thanks for your kind words on my post. I feel bad about complaining about six weeks without my hubby while you only get to see the Irishman so many times a year. ;-(

I hope that the rest of your Sunday is wonderful and relaxing!

xoxo, Shelly

I wasn't sure what a traditional Irish Breakfast consisted of until I clicked on the link. Sounds quite tasty!

Cynthia said...

I agree! I came home from church and zonked out on the couch! So lazy...but tommorrow's Monday and no time for laziness then! C

There are just some days that you need to take a movie break. We have done it even a few times when the weather is nice. I guess it is just the zoning out time that your body needs, a chance to rest.
I've enjoyed looking at your blog today, it is always interesting to see the rest of the world and meet new people!

Our leaves were all gone by the first of November--the trees will be bare till May, but soon the snow will fly.

Sundays are for joy and rest! Have a wonderful week!

Denise said...

oh the tree looks thin now.

Sunday was also kind of dreary here in Guatemala. When such weather is going on, I tend to organize :-) I organized my pen palling trunk, and started already with my Christmas mail! which might sound ridiculous to many ;-)

=Hilary,
I so love the term and you are the one who invented it! In fact, you instigated an idea in me to post these themes and for that I thank you.;)
I am still thinking about what the next installment will be, but in the midst of winter not much is growing. And snow comes usually first in February.;) Always happy when you stop by.;) xo

=gealikaa,
I too love Irish breakfast and the Irishman makes one of a kind.;) He always brings me black pudding as I simply love it.;) So glad you share this food appreciation with me.;) xo

=stacey,
nothing beats the movies made after Jane Austen novels.;) Hope your Sunday we great as well.;) xo

=Nessa,
me too, glad to find a kindred spirit.;)
xo

=Cairo,
I take it from your comment that you love those too.;) Always happy when you visit.;) xo

=Keith,
thank you, hope your weekend was lovely as well.;)

=Mimi,
welcome!;) And so right you are, each passing day we are approaching the winter solstice which means light will be returning soon. Thank you so much for stopping by.;)

=Shelly,
thank you for your sympathy.;) And do not worry, 6 weeks will pass so very quickly. I love to visits your page it is always filled with so much love.;) xo

=sprinkles,
it is very tasty, if you get a chance one day, make sure to order one.;) xo

=Cynthia,
sounds like your Sunday was relaxing too. Thank you so much for stopping by, I always enjoy making new acquaintances.;)

=Ulrike,
(very Scandinavian name;) so right you are, sometimes it is nice to just be carried away by images on a television screen. Thank you so much for your visit and very kind words.;)

=Brian,
yes, I had a great day, hope yours was too, even if it was very active.;)

=sage,
the same here, except the snow might not fly until January or February.;) But there are exceptions to the rule and perhaps finally this year we will get a white x-mas.,)

=Phillip,
absolutely correct and likewise.;)

=Denise,
ah, yes, it has lost almost all the leaves. Winter is soon here.;)xo

=Claudia,
perfect idea.;) I too tend to organize once in a while on those rainy, foggy Sundays.;) I do not think a bit it is ridiculous that you started with Christmas mail, I think it sounds very cosy.;) xo

Rosezilla said...

Those are WONDERFUL movies! I love Jane Eyre. And all the Austen. and Dickens. Yep, they are my kind of movie and books, too, for that matter.

Michael Manning said...

Yes, you make a good point. Plenty of sunlight is important for one's attitude. It really can affect our emotions. The tree is fascinating from your photos!

Protege said...

=Rosezilla,
glad to find a kindred spirit.;) And I agree, the books are wonderful too.;)

=Michael,
yes, the tree is loosing the last of the foliage, not much left of the updates, I am afraid.;)
