Today is one of those cold, bleaky early autumn days - the sky is unsmiling and distant with a hard shade of dirty grey. Yesterday's sun is now replaced by a light and tender rain, which invites one to unfold within oneself, chat with one's family, bake home-made chocolate cake, read art magazines in bed and watch the rain as it slips and slides across the window pane like new shoes on freshly polished tiles.

Images: Morning reading after breakfast wearing my silk antique kimono, watching the rain, gave myself a manicure, home-made chocolate cake made from 100% pure Jamaican cocoa, catching up on art news in bed, flowers on my dressing table, view from a French village. Have a nice Sunday and a happy week.
