Monday Listicles

Holly Molly Sunday turning into Monday.

Where is time flying??!? Please, please tell me you are madly busy and it is not just me being the worst time manager ever. Because I can hear footsteps upstairs and I know everybody is ready to go for our Sunday Hike and they will give me the stink eye when they see me typing in my PJ’s. OY!

OK, your home edition Listicles were fabulous. No left or right about it. And I bet your fall must haves will make me oh and ah and want to go shopping. I totally envisioned posting amazing Pinterest boards full of stunning stuff I cannot afford and will never wear anyway, but hey… I ran out of time and really who am I kidding? So I am depending on you. In the mean time my list is the truly what I have and wish not to do without this fall.

What shall we do next week? I say 10 COMPLIMENTS. Either give them to yourself or someone else. Or the ones you get or wish you would hear more often. Or anything really.

Also: email me if you have any ideas for listicles. Or tweet, or facebook or send a pigeon. With a nice cuppa coffee.

Must dash so here is what I cannot do without this fall.
Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Nice weather.

2. Good company.

3. Tweed

Image courtesy of my favorite store ever : Joules.

4. Dubarry Boots

I got mine from Noble Horse Gallery.

5. Silk scarf.

Yep, Joules again.

6. Comfy cardigan.

This one is from Ralph Lauren but I would rather ask Jenn to knit me one.

7. Good book or two. Or ten.

I am finally reading the one I won over at Cookie’s book club giveaway.

8. Soup

Image by Con Poulos.

My favorite: Colombian chicken and potato soup.

9.PSL! = Pumpkin Spice Latte

10. Most awesomest coffee cozy.

I won mine over at The Robot Mommy but there is plenty more over at Sew Tara.

    It’s not just you, I’ve been incredibly busy for a month now and can’t figure out what the heck happened! It’s all good though and I love your topic this week so much! Your pictures are ridiculously good of your beautiful son :) Boots, scarfs and the right cardigan – absolute must haves for fall!

    I love those boots. God I love those boots, and I know my fat, swollen cankles wouldn’t fit them and that makes me sad!
    Love those photos. Such a great subject that Lil J!

    No Pinterest boards from me, but wrapping in a comfy cardigan sounds lovely. And I will agree with everyone else – those boots are to die for!

    I made a joke about boots in my list, but I MUST HAVE YOURS! Actually, my calves are too big for boots – sad but true, and now you know more about me than you ever wanted to.

    I think I’ll have better luck snagging one of those coffee cozies. :)

    You are not alone in having time kick your arse! I am hanging on by a thread. I just got lobbed a calendar grenade this afternoon.

    Girl, every time you post a picture of boots, I get a bad case of the wants.

    All of the above. The only thing is that I think I will go a little thicker on the scarf — this Mexicanita gets cold easily.

      I used to think so too. But silk scarf around your neck is warmer then wool. Try it. I promise!!

    Love the first two! The other stuff sounds nice, too. :)

    #7 Absolutely!! I ran to the library right before it closed yesterday to pick up one that was on hold and another just for fun. Now to find the time to read them…

    You’re so classically fashionable. I love your style. As you’ll see from my list, I’m kind of not–but I do recognize it in others!

    Certain times of year I really, really miss starbucks…
    Your son is just so incredibly photogenic (and, of course, your photos are always so beautiful) that picture of him and the dog looks like it should be in a catalogue, or made into a poster, or something.
    Much like everyone else, I heart those boots, but I get the feeling they just won’t look as great on me as the long, thin-legged model…

      ah. almost forgot, might I suggest ten things about the gym (or exercising) for sometime in the future…

        No, not the gym!!!! OK, will do it in November… Let you know the details.

    Oh you are so sweet to have such faith in my knitting abilities! But before people start placing orders, I do not know how to knit sweaters. I’m awesome at little purses, scarves (rocke them!), baby items, hand towels, and now I can crochet a hat! But sweaters? Notsomuch. Love your list, Stasha!

    So many adorable things…so little time! I, sadly, could not think of a single must-have. I think I am functioning on survival mode right now. But for a future listicle, you should totally do a random-whatever listicle. I’m super duper good at those. In fact, Monday is often my list day, even if I can’t come up with a listicle! Love ya!

    [...] Stasha’s listicle this week is about autumn but even before I knew that would be her subject, I had been thinking about fall.  This time last year, I was still in the just-arrived expat fugue state; I couldn’t really have told you what day it was, much less what season. Now, however, I am awake and aware; I’m pretty sure it’s Wednesday and I know it’s October and thus, fall. [...]
