Goodbye Thanksgiving, Here Comes Christmas!

Excited to have my whole family here for Christmas. My son is usually overseas, and I have my daughter and SIL every Christmas, which I love. But this year, the whole gang will be here and we’re all going to see Star Trek together! My son loves to cook, so he’s making some delicious side dishes. I’ll make the turkey, and Jenn loves to make some dishes, soooo, it’s a family affair and I can’t be more excited!!

So next up is Alpha’s Unwrapped releasing December 1st. I can’t believe December is nearly here. I’m so not ready for it!

But the time doesn’t standstill for anyone.

And I’m here with a giveaway, so just drop by and comment for a chance!

So here is an excerpt from Covert Cougar Christmas by me!

Christmas tree with lights in winter

“Fourteen hundred and some pocket change. So not too bad. The angels are really going over big this year. And the naughty elf wooden ornaments from Denmark too.”

Christmas Ornaments from Denmark

Christmas Ornaments from Denmark

Or they might have been from Sweden. My mom got them years and years and years ago. And this is all that’s left of them. But they’re what gave me the idea in the story. Oftentimes I will include some real life stories in my stories.

Hope you had a lovely weekend. It’s been raining and raining and raining and raining here. And REALLY cold. I had to get out warmer clothes gloves, hat so I’m not rushing the dogs in and out. I keep expecting the temperature to go back to it’s usually warm state. The frigid north has settled in at least for another day. And then in the low sixties next week. And no rain.

So back to work on Viking!! Have a super Sunday!!!

I think these are Pencil Boxwood

I think these are Pencil or Skyrocket Boxwood. They’re evergreen, grow really tall, and remain really narrow.

Okay, and I’m back to cleaning and decorating. 🙂

Have a great Black Friday! Are you going anywhere? Eating anything special? Me? Turkey!

Decorating and Dusting and Cleaning Out–Happy Thanksgiving!!

Do you have stuff that you never use, just clutters up the place??? I’ve been “cleaning out” for years. Really. And yet, I still have tons and tons and tons of stuff to clean out. Sooooo, I’m doing it all, decorating for Christmas, dusting while I’m at it, and cleaning out.

WHAT a job. I’ve been taking stuff to Goodwill, and will take some things to a resale shop. I need my big Suburban now. Though when I fold down the back seats for the Escape, it has quite a bit of room.

So I checked the weather, wondering if it is ever going to get cool. 73 today, 70 tomorrow, and ohmigod, a winter blast to knock our socks off. It’s time for woolen underwear, layers and layers of clothing and we’re going to be at the North Pole. 35/43 Saturday, and 40/47 on Sunday. Brrr. But then it’s warming back up but only to the 50s and 60s and it’s going to be in the 30s in the morning. This morning? 66. So warm. And we’re having rain all week.

Okay, so here’s some of the done decorating.

Okay, lots more to do and no time to do it! Have a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, and if not, have a super Thursday!!!

Off to see when I get to start my turkey breast…. I can almost smell it already!  Yum…

Christmas, Anyone?

Christmas is coming (640x427)

I saw this in a store, I’m not ready yet. But I’ll be decorating starting today. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving, but since I had Thanksgiving giving early, I’ll be decorating early.

That means lots of cleaning, and lots of decorating, but everyone will be here for Christmas, so it’s all worth it! Have you ever said you need to have friends or family coming over every once in a while so you have an incentive to clean???

Have a great Monday!!

Sold, Sold, Sold, Sold!

Beautiful carpet of bluebell flowers in Spring forest landscape

For the Heart of the Wolf Series–Silver Wolf Trouble, Brett’s story

These are not the covers, just fun manipulations of photographs, though I might use them eventually if I write a novella or two. These 3 books will come out in 2017.

White Wolf Christmas

White Wolf Christmas–to let readers know what happened to the Arctic Wolf pack

Another SEAL Wolf book, this is not the title. But this one will have a SEAL wolf introduced in SEAL Wolf in Too Deep in Feb, 2016

And the audio rights to Billionaire in Wolf’s Clothing were sold, so that one will be coming out in audiobook around the May release of the book!

That’s the good news. Now, I have to write the first 3 novels. Billionaire is done! 🙂 ❤

Have a super great Saturday!!

A Fairy Garden, Au Natural!

Mushrooms, moss and wildflowers in their natural state

A lot of fairies in this fairy village

Folks pay a lot to create fairy gardens, but mine just suddenly appeared! I didn’t even notice the moss until I looked at the photos on the computer.

Magic pink rhododendron flowers on summer mountain. Dramatic overcast sky. Carpathian, Ukraine, Europe. Beauty world.

The World of Fae

Having a wee bit o’ fun with taking a break and creating a picture while I’m writing The Viking’s Highland Lass. I’ve pitched 3 books to my editor and she’s taking them to the acquisitions meeting. So if they sell, I’ll be on deadline again. Right now…I’m free!

Off to write.

Have a super great and wonderfully fantastic Friday!
