See you in a week…

Posted Nov 29 2010

Oh, I love this time of year! I love baking Christmas cookies, decorating the house, sending Christmas cards, and listening to Christmas Carols.  I’ve been recording lots of Hallmark Christmas movies, and intend to watch everyone with a kleenex box nearby. But until I do anything I’ve got to finish The Survivor and complete a […]

A Thanksgiving Update

Posted Nov 26 2010

Yesterday morning, my daughter had swim team practice. So, there I was at 5:30 in the morning, sipping coffee and watching TV. Next thing I know, my husband was there, too. An hour passed. We read the paper. Looked at the sale fliers for Black Friday. Half-heartedly watched the news. It was raining and raining. Perfect […]

Our First Thanksgiving

Posted Nov 19 2010

Anyone who talks to me for very long knows I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic this year. Actually, I’m been pretty melancholy.  Our children are getting older, and soon they’ll both be in college.  And though that’s wonderful, it’s also kind of hard.

To Librarians…or to people who visit the library

Posted Nov 10 2010

This afternoon, I’m off to Ashland Public Library in Ashland, OH, all because of the very sweet invitation of Kristie, the librarian there. She asked me to do a book talk months ago. In March, I’ll be speaking at the Cuyahoga Library near Cleveland. This was all arranged because the librarians there contacted my publisher, […]

Here we go again…

Posted Nov 9 2010

Those of you who are parents might be able to relate to this…. I’ve encouraged my daughter to continue with swim team her senior year. (that’s great!) Practice starts at 5:00 am~which means she leaves the house at 4:35 am. (that’s not so great) And yes, no matter how much I *know* she’s definitely old […]

Ten Things I Love About Sugarcreek

Posted Nov 1 2010

Soon after I arrived home from Sugarcreek on Saturday, my husband took me out to dinner. Yesterday after church I ended up napping and reading, and carrying up 22 years of Christmas houses upstairs from our basement. During all this, I thought about my solo trip to Sugarcreek…and how it went by far too fast. In […]
