Friday's Circle of Friends - October 26

circle of friendsThis was an interesting week. Winter arrived a little earlier than we expected.

Earlier this week it literally snowed for 24 hours straight and we received between 15 to 20 cms of snow (over 6 inches). Temperatures dropped quite low as well.

Now some years we've had snow here on July 1st or in mid August, so snow in October isn't all that unusual, but still many of us were unprepared.

September was quite hot for us.

While we did have the odd snow day earlier in October, most of the time during the first few weeks of October it was nice and mild outside, and I was enjoying it quite a bit.

Personally I was hoping it would stay that way for a while. But mother nature had other ideas. It definitely looks like Christmas outside.

On to this week's Friday's Circle of Friends.

I wanted to begin with a couple of posts that you may find helpful as you work on your own blog:

      Our weather has gone crazy as well. It was 80 on Tuesday and today they're calling for a high of 40 with 25 mph winds. Somehow, we've skipped over fall and moved straight to winter I guess. Thanks so much for the mention!

      @Catherine - Happy to include you anytime!

      @John - You are welcome! That is quite a drop in temperature. 80 is quite high for this time of year, isn't it? I don't know what is going on this year with the weather. It is snowing here again today.

      @Glen - You're welcome! Look forward to seeing updates as your new garden grows.

      @Jackie - Very happy to connect with you. Always fun to make new friends.

      Thanks so much for mentioning me this week! I really appreciate it. Also, it snowed here yesterday but it didn't stay on the ground thankfully. I'm not quite ready for it as I have some yard work to get done, but I'm pre-occupied with work inside!

      @Money Bulldog - Always great to connect and keep in touch with you.

      @DC - I enjoy your blog! We were going to do a bit more work outside too, but I guess it isn't going to happen.

      @KK - Really happy to discover you. We'll keep in touch.

      @Budget and the Beach - Thanks for stopping by!! I noticed on Google Weather that it was quite hot in LA this week. Hope it cools off for you guys soon.
