the summer we never had

I’ve been talking about our rainy rainy summer a lot, but it seems nature has granted our wishes for a beautiful indian summer. Though the trees are turning golden and the streets are already covered in leaves we have been having more sunshine this week than the whole summer.

Not willing to lose a minute of the last warm days of the year I spent the whole saturday at the river with some girlfriends.

You can’t really swim in the Rhine in our parts (well, you can, but you’re likely to drown because of the strong currents), but we soaked up sunshine and warmth for the colder days to come.

A perfect day and so needed.
(We also did about five loads of laundry, including bedding and blankets, jumping at the chance to get a load or two dry each day. Just keeping it real here.)

The weather forecast promises some nice and sunny days and I hope that after a rainy summer we’ll get some beautiful fall days.

I do need a nice weekend to do some much needed gardening (all those rainy days have made me neglect my balcony so it’s in a pretty sorry state right now).

I’ve also wanted to do a little photo shoot with a friend for weeks and the weather never cooperated.

It’s been a pretty exciting week at work but after coming home exhausted a couple of nights in a row (“more dead than alive” as my boyfriend calls it) I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend with gardening, sewing, reading and taking photos.
