Les Scènes du Week-end {29}

This weekend we took it easy & didn't go very far from home.
But there were some lovely things to see just down the street.

There was a local apple/pear/honey festival 
we checked out on Saturday afternoon.
there were great prices on apples & pears grown in orchards just outside Annecy
& lots of yummy local juice too
as you can see, some pumpkins & squash snuck into the festival
& a local jam-maker too 

{We didn't buy any jam, seeing as
my husband is an expert de confiture,
so we have tons of jars chez nous...}

Sunday morning it was foggy,
so the mountains we can usually admire from our balcony
were mostly hidden.

However, that didn't stop me from admiring
the colour of all the local trees.
Have I mentioned I love autumn?

view of the neighbours' pretty fall colours from notre balcon
FQ made a huge batch of delicious pumpkin soup
& also gingerbread cake for dessert.  
Miam !!!

I love soup almost as much as I love autumn
After lunch, we went down to le lac for a wander in the fresh air.

oooh, pretty
J'adore voir les feuilles dans le lac...

more pretty fall trees outside of Annecy's fancy lake-front hotel/casino
But really... let's be honest, ok?

Local fruit festival? Fun.
Husband who makes soup & cake?  Nice.
Lake & lovely leaves just down the street?  Pretty.

But the best thing about this past weekend?
My new iPhone started working!!!
Canuck case?  I love it more than autumn & ALMOST as much as the iPhone!


  1. You are the cutest EVER. And now I know why you appear to be on Facebook at all times. It's because you're all fancy with an iPhone! Wheee!

    Love this post. You definitely made the most of the weekend. I'd have taken loads of photos of those leaves, too! J'adore autumn leaves.

    And soup. Must figure out a way to get to your place for lunch...

    love you!

  2. I love how your phone matches your shirt. (; Biz, Ana

  3. Ooouh Annecy pendant l’automne! I should have visited during peak-season, but I ended up in Paris instead (was dying to see Paris in autumn!). I love seeing lac d'Annecy with the autumn colors. Prettiest lake in the world! The food looks yummy (btw, my bf's mom, from Annecy, offered that exact same table cloth to my bf! lol. Maybe it's from the same store? ha
