The smell is a sugar fragrance mixed with sweet fresh apple. It’s in the after taste that the flavour is prominent. I would describe it as a green apple after taste that fades out to spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. The initial sip is smooth and creamy, but not overly distinctive. It is pale creamy looking coffee. Have you tried an apple crisp oat macchiato?
If we were having coffee, I would share with you that we had our first snowflakes on Halloween. It was so faint that you had to look at the streetlight to confirm if it was snow in the air. It lasted minutes. Since then, we have had a skiff of snow, but the temperature remains reasonable. Mornings are frosty, the kind of frosty that makes everything looks sparkly.
If we were having coffee, I would share that I finished up edits on Chimera and Curses this week and it has been sent off for its first proofread. With the edits complete, I can focus on NaNoWriMo. I missed the first couple of days of writing for NaNo because I was working on the manuscript, but I’m into it now and pushing forward to try and make up for the missed word count days. I am working to finish The Ember File Side story that I hoped to have finished before November. Once that’s written in rough, I will switch to the outline I created for NaNo and Book 3 of The Ember Files. So, that is my writing update. Where are you at with your writing this month?
If we were having coffee, I would share that there is no time to read. I finished up the novel I was on and haven’t started anything new yet. I might wait till November is nearing an end. I do hope to spend some time working on my hobbit puzzle this weekend. My younger son has requested we play Game of Life and the oldest would like to play Pictionary, so those games are on the weekend schedule.
Anyway, happy November.
