I love this time of year.
Right now nature bares such an abundance of fruit: apples, pears, plums while some of my beloved summer berries are still to be had.

Then the first pumpkins (well, ok, that happened like a month ago) of the year enter the shelves. Here it is mainly kuri squash which anyway is my favorite. A couple days ago - though still the owner of a stove-less kitchen - I couldn't resist any more. And finally got myself a couple to snuggle with to place all over our beautiful apartment.
They had some organic ones on sale and since you can keep 'em a while I thought I might as well stock up a little now.

For a month I also have been working on my parents apple trees apples. In august I first made a batch of applesauce. Four small glasses out of a whole kitchen sink full of apples. It's always a lot of work, partly because there's so many worms inside. But it pays off because those apples are just so delicious and nothing to compare with supermarket fruit or Florida apples...
Also: juicing.

Two days ago Sisto and me also collected some pears at a tree I still knew of from three years ago. It was full of fruit but unfortunately they all hang up very high, so we could just collect what was lying on the ground. And those were mostly either broken or half eaten.
The solution to using up a huge amount of not so perfect pears:

Now you know what I've been doing lately. Except for moving, catching mice, dealing with the social welfare system and starting a vegan job. ...but that's another story.

More 'other stories' to be told this month over at vegan mofo 2014. My favorites:

Goodbye Celebrity Infinity

Being on the ferry that'll carry us from Harwich, UK to the Netherlands. We did it. We almost did it. Crossing this ocean by ship for the second time in our life. We won't miss it, I'm sure!

All the things we didn't do

Captains Dinner, tanning and sweating on the deck, Faberge egg collection exhibition, diamond shopping, lounging and Spa, specialty dining, disco dongo and Celebrity Pilates shape up so you can eat some more all day.

After the storm

The sun is out again, as if it had never been gone. 
One more day, two more nights to Harwich and we're hoping for the sea to stay calm.

Off to Harwich

Later that day we left Ireland to experience the worst night during our 14-day trip crossing the stormy irish sea. The waves were so high they hit the ship probably one deck higher than ours. Sisto feared they were going to smash it while I didn't even notice them being deep asleep.

Rainy irish day - let's have a cup o' tea!

After getting wet through and through being out just a little while, after having troubles finding a place to go online, after being out for not too long, we didn't go for a nice hike due to the weather, but decided to have a chill day aboard.

On the lookout

We didn't see lots of people after walking a little bit off the main roads, 
this cat however sure was telling us to mind our own business.
