The scene outside my window displays soft white flakes falling against a background of grey sky. A white blanket conceals the green grass beneath and it veils the rooftops and trees around me. October snow in the extreme has fallen so many days this week that I have lost count. Yesterday we built a snow fort! Where is fall? I feel as if I should be putting up my Christmas tree not my Halloween decorations.
Other big news this week would be my article going live on Mamalode: That Old Rocker. This is my second time having a piece published and I am very happy about it. I believe that I have blogging to thank for it because I am now writing regularly and finding my writing voice. Lots of fun.
I am participating in my first blogging challenge: BlogAhead2016. I have an end goal of 34 posts for my 2017 stockpile. This week I completed enough posts that my total to date is at 16. I am working at a rate of one a day, and I feel confident that I will reach my goal by the end of the month.

In The Dinner
I used to reading a novel or more a week, but I find I just don’t have the time for that right now. It takes me a few weeks to finish a book depending on the length of it. In light of the snowy weather this week I have found myself in front of the fire place in the evenings enjoying a few more pages than usual. I have to admit that it feels like a nice treat in that regard.
