Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all my readers out there. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading my blog and following along with me on my many journeys. I appreciate each and every like and follow I received. Whether you be in Canada, the USA or far beyond the waters, I hope everyone has a great weekend and finds sometime to give thanks and spend time with loved ones.

This weekend I’m hoping to get a bit of reading done. Reading the entire Reckoners Series by Brandon Sanderson is how I dream of spending my weekend, but between all the visiting with family and turkey and cupcake and pie eating, I will probably only get through a few pages.


I will be away from the blog for a couple days for the holiday, but will be back next week to blog away. Hopefully, by the time I return, all the snow will be gone and we can get back to autumn! But still, I could resist one last gorgeous winter picture.



Winter Has Come

It is October 5th, 2016, and here (in central Saskatchewan), we are getting our first winter storm of the season. Wahhhhhh! Winter is often five months long here, but six!?!? Anyway, I’m trying to enjoy all the good things that come with snow, like pretty pictures, extra hot coffee, soup season, scarves, and a great excuse to cuddle up with my favorite books. So, in ode to this early arrival, I thought I would to an extra post of pictures about the storm, because if you take the time to look, it really is beautiful, even if I spent half the night awake, frightened that my house was about to blow away.

The Beginning of the Storm. It just started as wind and cold rain. But in the morning I woke up to this:


It is colder, windier and, of course, snowier than yesterday, but I have a few reason I can’t feel too bad about it: 1. Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, and 1. Warm Blankets and Good Books.

Oh yeah, and the Mexico trip I booked for January. My snow break can’t come soon enough.



First Day of Fall

I’ve already been blogging for a few weeks about how much I love fall. I’ve been collecting pictures of all kinds of fall goodness that I want to share with you. Enjoy!

My favourite Pumpkin Spice Latte all cozied up in one of my favourite scarves.

Pumpkins, leaves, and colourful displays, oh my!

Trees, trees and more trees.



And my absolute favourite tree. I wish they came in this colour all year round!


There’s a Disaster Waiting for Me

I’m back. It was a long, and wonderful vacation, full of writing conferences, visiting with old friends, nature, and even a bit of fishing and dinosaurs…

Sadly, there was barely any reading, we just had too much to do. And now I’m home and there’s a disaster waiting for me to clean it up…


I’m hoping that somewhere under all of this mess is The Shadow Hour, a great book that I’ve been trying to finish forever so I can post a review. I think I only have about twenty pages left, so I’m really hoping I can find it soon and that the mischievous house sprites that like to misplace my things haven’t lost it forever…

When the book shows up, I’ll finish it and post my review here. If I haven’t been lost in the mountain of stuff that needs putting away. Once I’m done with the reading and the cooking I’m going to begin my new year listing (I’m much more a September New Year person than I am a January New Year person). I’ve come up with a writing challenge for myself, which I will post more of here in the next week, as well as some updates regarding the Black Depths Universe. Meanwhile, I hope you’re all enjoying these last few beautiful weeks of summer. What have ¬†you been up to?
