kiss and tell friday


(We´ve had two days of autumn and have gone straight to winter... We lit the fireplace for the first time last night...Look Aimee fuzzy socks!)

What are you looking forward to?

I have two trips coming up. I´m going home to Philadelphia next week, (yes, after living in Spain for umpteen years, I still call Philly my home.) and I´m going to Egypt at the end of December. I already have my bags packed, and have been sitting by the front door with my coat and my umbrella. (Just like Berta´s Auntie does...)

My sister lives in Canada. They had one heavy snow the other day!
I love winter but I need to spend the fall for facing it. :)

I hope you will have the greatest time back home and of course in Egypt!

Kari said...

Wow a fireplace - I miss that.
Well I'm looking forward to a week in Singapore. Yeah we leave next week.
And in Christmas right now we're planning to go to Phuket.

Hey April I hope you make it to Thailand.

Kari said...

Have fun back at home and do you have space in your bag for Egypt??!!
Happy Weekend.

Allison said...

We have a beautiful fireplace which we have unfortunately never used because my husband cannot stand the thought of having to clean the whole mess up... but there is nothing like a cozy fire when it's cold outside. In WV, we needed them quite often.

Have fun back at home and enjoy the cheddar! I'm sure like me, you have a long list of things you must eat while you are there. Philly this time of year... isn't that a little cold now?

ladybug-zen said...

i'm looking forward to summer sun, fresh greens, cukes, strawberries, tomatoes, herbs...from the garden, summer knitting, feeling warmth, going to the beach, camping, the sun, heat, smoothies, cold green tea.......

Nihal said...

What am I looking forward to?
Summer, summer, summer! This rainy season and cold weather are not my favorites times:(

Inna said...

Right now I'm not waiting for anything. My autumn break began today and that's what I have been waiting the last weeks!

Going to Philadelphia and Egypt sounds great. Hope you have great time during your both trips!

Fancy Fodder said...

Sweet cozy picture. It's cold here, too. Every time it gets cold, I'm ready to migrate south with the birds!
Philly and Egypt? Wow!
I can hardly wait to see your pictures. You'll have fun with your camera.
Since the weather is not something to look forward to, I look forward to Halloween.
Next week is the Halloween parade, and Trick-or-treat night... I'll wear an old rickety lady mask and pass out candy to the neighborhood goblins :+)
Have a great weekend!

Christy said...

I'm looking forward to my next baby being born in April! But before then, looking forward to the holidays back home in virginia!

Di said...

Spending time outdoors in the cold sunshine this weekend - destroying the gardens at Falkland Palace with the National Trust Conservation Volunteers (ok we won't really destroy the gardens), going to Paris at the end of November, my friends coming to visit from London next week- oh and going to the dentist - and no I am not really looking forward to the last one!
Enjoy your trip home!

McGillicutty said...

Urgghhh we had storms all last night and you'd think yay cozy sleeping time but know...it was woahh who should I grab first when the house blows down type stuff.
Have a safe and wonderful trip to Philly and remember to leave us some nice posts!!! besos.

Crescent Moon said...

That picture looks so cozy and inviting. It still doesn't really feel like Autumn here.It's been very hot and humid. Today is U.F. Homecoming, so I'm looking forward to taking my son to the parade this afternoon.

Philadelphia is lovely. We visited there about 4 years ago for a huge family reunion at the Newlin Grist Mill (Chester County) and keep talking about how we'd like to go back.

I would love to go to Egypt!

Ocean Girl said...

I love the picture, and the fireplace. I am excited for you and with you, about going home and Egypt! Wow so much to look forward to :)

skyfighter said...

I will be glad when my husband is finished with his book. Then I can have my husband back and my children can have their father back. I am also exicited about our trip to Montreal this next summer and a trip to Rome next September. We like to plan a head.

Ocean Girl said...

Another thing Jane I had been meaning to tell you, you have one classy blog AND classy followers. Somehow I feel my profile pic is out of place :)

likeschocolate said...

oops skyfighter is me-likes chocholate. Sorry didn't realize my son was signed in. Have a great day!

laméditerraine said...

You put the perfect picture of my thoughts about autumn!I love those socks, QUECHUA rocks xDxD

I think my plans are passing all the school exams and I think I'm probably going to Florence and Venice this Christmas with a lot of people from my family.

How long will you be out in Philadelphia??
Kisses and looooove for your kiss and tell friday, it's my favourite part of your blog!

urbaNiche said...

Joanna Jenkins said...

LOVE the sock photo. It made me smile.

I'm looking forward to being away for a 4 day weekend vacation. I'll be back next week. Woo-hoo.

caitlin said...

Wow, I'm jealous! We were supposed to go to Egypt once and then the cruise was cancelled. It was a while back when they thought it wouldn't be safe for tourists.

I'm looking forward to being settled in our new apartment just in time for Thanksgiving and all the festive decorations.

Cabrizette said...

Lucky you !!! I'm looking for holidays with all my children... to be five again !!! Have a wonderful w.e. Bises

malo said...

I am looking forward to go to riding school tomorrow with my daughter. I am also looking forward to tomorrow's morning coffee and next friday when I plan to have a night out with friends. I am looking forward to find the next great novel to read. There are so many things I am looking forward to. That's happiness, not? I've never been to Egypt. I would love to. Lucky you!

vanessa/NessieNoodle said...

looking forward to our family camp trip to the Santa Cruz, CA coast.
I can hardly wait- it is one of my most favorite places to visit

KathyA said...

It's raw and chilly here -- and raining. I've been lighting fires with Duraflame logs because the wood is so wet.
Let me know when you get State-side!

Brit said...

OOh how cosy! I want to sit in front of a fire with warm fuzzy sweaters and socks! :) That's what I'm looking forward to, the winter! Real icy cold winter!

Emily said...

Have fun at home and in Egypt! Sounds like you have a few wonderful weeks ahead. As for me, in the coming months, I'm looking forward to my first real trip to Spain!

MUS said...

That's the power of roots! Are you going by yourself (home)? Enjoy your time there, Jane!

Kimmie said...

looking forward to things slowing down after october goings-ons (birthdays, volleyball games, halloween and school stuff) .... before the onslaught of The Holidays ... a few quiet "do nothing" days perhaps?

cute socks :)

Bee said...

Such a cozy picture!

I envy your trip back "home." I really miss the States during that stretch between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Even though we still celebrate those holidays in England, it's really not the same.

Oh yes, and I'm looking forward to having two of my best girlfriends here this weekend. xx

liza said...

I don't think I've ever been to a high school football game, and we're going to one tonight. I'm excited to watch all the high school-ness without any of the angst! Longer term, I'm looking forward to some answers... will my husband have a job after the New Year, where will Eddie go to kindergarten next year...what will the answers to both of these mean about my roles... stuff like that!

marinik said...

ooooh egypt.. how exciting, the fireplace looks so relaxing especially with warm socks, i wish i could say the same for LA, it rained...correction drizzled to a couple of days... and now we're back to hot and dry.. :(( oh well there's always next month, enjoy philly

Cherry B said...

Egypt sounds AMAZING! What all will you do there, and how long? I cannot wait to head home to Louisiana for Christmas-- my first time in a few years, and my first Christmas EVER with my husband, thus, his first in La. Can hardly contain my excitement!!!

Ida Nielsen said...

You must be so excited about going home to visit!! I'm going home for Christmas and I can't wait (I'm eagerly knitting some 'can't-wait-to-go-home-for-Christmas-gloves' just in the case of tons of snow, ya know ;-) )

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

We had two days of winter and went back to Indian summer! I have a feeling it won't last long, though. This looks like a long, cold winter on the way!

jgy said...

Have a great trip to Philly! Egypt sounds amazing.
here, looking forward to watch some videos a friend lent--Smoke, and Blue in the Face. It's hard-to-get these English titles where we live! And to selling some of our old stuff at a flea market tomorrow:)
Happy weekend to you♡

B said...

Found your blog through 'KayLovesVintage' it's beautiful. Love those socks! Enjoy your trip. B x

Jeannette said...

Have a great time going ´home´.
And after living 3 years in Germany Holland is still home. And for the longest time I said that I was going home when I visited my parents. Guess we have 2 homes. ;)
And I´m looking forward to our trip to the US.

n a t s u m i said...

I look forward to see the icecrystals on our trees. I look forward to warm cocoa and reading about winter in everyones blogs. Enjoy your time spent at home in Philly! When I have visited Spain and my family there I always travel back home to Norway with my suitcase full of chorizo, compango de fabada, fabes, jamon serrano, café, mejillones en escabeche, pastel de cabracho, chocolate valor puro con almendras and so many things more. What do you bring back home from Philly?

Line said...
