Posted Dec 30 2010

That was a big sigh of relief! Yesterday our visiting relatives left, we packed away all the Christmas decorations, and then I  finally got to spend a few hours alone in the house, reading in front of the fire.  I love my husband’s family so much, and I was thrilled to see them all. However, I also […]

Happy Holidays!

Posted Dec 27 2010

Merry Christmas ! As promised, here is a picture of the elephant foot. It’s currently standing (sorry, I couldn’t resist) in our living room. My son was beyond excited when he opened the box and immediately took a picture of it with his phone and sent it to all his buddies! It is truly his favorite gift. […]

  For those of you who are curious about the elephant foot, (see The Heirloom Blog)  it has now made its way to be the first present under our Christmas tree.  It’s not near the size of the box, but we did have quite a time finding a box big enough! Our son comes home from […]

Almost Done

Posted Dec 2 2010

Big smiles here. No, the book isn’t done…but it’s almost done. I’ve pretty much worked on the final draft of The Survivor all week.  My house is a mess and I haven’t cooked for two days.
