Preveli: the Monastery

So, fall has arrived.
The air is fresh and crispy, we changed the hour so it gets dark very early, the leaves have left their trees, I need an extra blanket while I sleep.
But you know, I still have some photos from Crete.
Hope you like them!

We arrived in Plakias in a wonderful apartment!
The first day we arrived, we visited Preveli: its monastery, its beaches, its palm forest....well, we had a great time there!
Here's the Monastery: it took an hour to visit it, it's a quite place, it's far away from everything and everyone, the church was wonderful, full of gold, but we couldn't take photos, and they gave me a skirt because my pants were too short...

Everlasting Light *

Hope your week was good, but I hope you're having a bright weekend!

I know, tomorrow is Friday, but to me Friday is somehow better than Saturday...Friday evening has a special taste!

Well I put some nail polish, black this time (you know I'm a rebel) I'm listening to some good music, I'm looking forward the moment when I'll be under my blankets, and I'll read my book.

This was a good week: I met friends, my family, I run, I watched 2 episodes of "The Big Bang Theory" with my Mr yesterday evening, in 2 months it's going to be Christmas, today was cold, and I liked it, I drank the second hot chocolate of the season, I looked at the sky very frequently, because it is breathless. The only thing I didn't do and I really wanted to do, was taking photos, but don't worry, the weekend is looooong.... :)

I really love (October 2014)

1 ^ The colors of the falling leaves
2^  Driving with my Mr by my side, and sing old songs together
3^  The smell of a chocolate cake that is baking
4^  A Sunday lunch with my Mr and one of my cousins (and then my sister): I told you, we are a very close family, I feel so fine when I'm surronded by them...
5^  Google's Doodles (aren't them great?!?)
6^  Friends: girls that are there for me since I was 6, girls I met at University, friends I met thanks to all the firms I worked for, blogfriends.....you're giving me great time!THANK YOU!
7^  A colleague that comes into "my" office, and says: "Were you looking for a lens? a 50 mm? I found a big deal in amazon....." ^_^
8 ^ cabbage, pumpkins, ...
9^  My new pair of black trousers
10 ^ My Mr because it's him

I know, too many photos...but how can I chose the best one?

While outside is foggy, grey and it seems that everything we need is watching tv with a cup of tea and a muffin, my mind goes back to that day in Elafonissi....(paradise, ehm,  part 2)

An October weekend

.....and this is how fall looks like to me.
yellow and red leaves that fall down from trees, rain, and dark, and mushrooms, a blanket and a movie, some wool sweater, and some hot chocolate, pumpkins, a baking cake in the oven.... (she gave me the idea of the list of what I like of autumn....)
It's not a bad vision, to be honest.

Monday is already here, and this weekend is flown away:
On Saturday I baked some goooood little cakes-that-look-like-muffin-but-they-aren't! (I'm going to share the recipe with you veeery soon, because they are delicious!), then I went to a surprise party for the husband of one of my best friend. All Saturday I was without my boyfriend because he was ill...

On Saturday I took a ride with my bike around Padua, and....how I love my city!!!

On the afternoon I finally met my Mr, and because he was ill...we finished to watch How I met your mother 8, so... where can we buy the last season?
Personally I'm not in love with these last seasons, but you know, we want to know how everything ends!!!

How was your weekend?
Hope you had a good Monday! ;)
