This year, for the first time ever, I decided to participate in Inktober.
I’ve always wanted to but never even dared to try in fear I would drop out and fail, BUT NOT THIS TIME! I participated and against all odds, I completed it too! ✌😁

If you didn’t know, Inktober is a yearly drawing challenge. A bit like NaNoWriMo and similar projects, except here the focus is art. You’re supposed to draw something every day for a month.
Drawlloween is basically the same thing, only with fun spooky prompts. Since I’m such a massive Halloween lover I decided to do Inktober but with the prompts from Drawlloween.

Imaginary Karin - park first snow 2016

The first snow of this winter fell yesterday, on November the 2nd! 😁
I know not everyone is as enthusiastic about semi-frozen water as I am, but winter is my favourite season after autumn and it has become a tradition for me to post about the first snowfall every year. And this year it’s a serious snowfall too…

Yesterday morning I woke up to a world covered in a thin layer of mushy wet snow. It was only 0°C so I expected it to melt pretty soon but over the course of the day the temperature dropped and it just kept snowing.
In fact, a day later it’s still snowing! There have even been warnings on TV about severe weather, but I’m not worried. I already have winter tires on the car so I’m good.

It’s autumn again! At last! 😀
We have all the other signs of the season, like yellow trees and migrating birds and such, but the weather doesn’t seem to get the message. I actually look forward to the cold, so last week when we had only 1°C in the mornings I was feeling very optimistic, but now it’s warm and sunny again. But then again, it’s only September still.

Anyway, I wanted to post about autumn, and when you have nothing real to write about you can always do a list, right? 😉
