Oh my goodness! I feel like I’ve been stuck on some amusement park ride all year. You know. The one that yanks you high in the air then drops you like a sack of potatoes and sometimes does a lot of wild loops. But I did it. I released five books and I’m pretty proud of that.
But now, I'm feeling a bit old and worn out. So, Christmas is almost upon us with just a few more days left. I don’t do a lot of decorating. My tree is in the attic and that’s where it’ll stay. (I’m referencing the old and worn out part here.)
For the last 30 years no matter what, I’ve always put my Christmas angel out. She’s getting a bit frazzled (like me) but still looks beautiful.
I also decorate my dining table. This year, it’s candles and poinsettia. I lit the candles the other night when I ate and took a picture. It brightened up my spirits and put a warm glow in my heart.
I thought my French doors leading to my patio needed some cheer too. No one will see it but me but I kinda like it. It looks nice. By the way, that wreath is old too.
I have a reissue in February! YAY! This book won the National Reader's Choice Award in 2003 in the historical category. I had just begun publishing and didn't fully appreciate my award. I do now.
This story is about a woman who's losing her eyesight and she's the sole support of her mother and two sisters. If she can longer hunt, they won't eat. And the bank is foreclosing on their farm. Then a handsome cowboy comes and tries to help but Glory's pride gets in the way and she sees his aid as meddling. I'll tell lots more about this story in the coming days. It's available for preorder now.
Do you have a Christmas tradition at your house? Want to share? Or just talk about anything. That’ll work.
Wishing you all health, happiness, and prosperity.
Merry Christmas! Happy Holidays! Feliz Navidad!
