Autumn can be your best month ever if you live in Canada, because it is b e a u t i f u l. You can see how dazzling is the perfusion of the nature.
I became fascinated everytime I saw the beauty in the trees all around me. You can see many shades in different colours like red, green, yellow, drab, orange, brown... Besides this, there is no extreme hots anymore which humidity causes. You can feel the freshness and coolness of this season. Necessarily, autumn brings the rain too, it is not the best news for people who does not like rain unlike me, however, everybody loves the amazing smell comes from the soil after the rain.
One of the best things to do in this season is definitely the apple picking. You can get various kinds of apples in there. When we got home, we had 5 big bags of apples and we knew what to do: Apple crisp and apple sauce. I never had the apple crisp before and I did not guess it tastes that good. Homemade apple sauce is also really good, I whis we can have it all the time.
Also, there is another little thing that makes this month charming to me: I recently celebrated my birthday, it was on 24th October. Happy 18 to me! I did not expect from people to remember and give importance to this matter because I have been here for only two months, but they did! All my friends, even people in the school hall and surely my house family here have celebrated it and I have received bunch of gift cards and cute special presents from them. My house mom gave me a necklace with the Nova Scotia borders on it, plus, everbody’s initials in the family are on it: S, K, T, B. My house sister bought me stuff from my favorite store and my friends bought me coffee and cupcakes from Tim Hortons. I felt like everyone around me cared about my birthday and I can say that I had one of the best birthdays in my life here, in Canada. I know that I always will remember it.
We also had a Halloween Party! I became a celtic warrior and had so much fun in there. I met with the other foreign correspondents and realized how much I missed them because it’s been two months already, since the camp. Time flows by and I do not even realize because we always have interesting stuff going on in our lives.
See you next time!
