I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our family did despite our younger daughter being sick and missing the day. She came on Friday to hang out with our nephew and niece and their daughters from Wichita Falls. Her sweet daughter shared the flu with her mother and me. Now I had a flu shot, so I’m expecting to bounce back quickly. Right now, it’s been almost a week. ☹
I didn’t eat this entire plate.
I’ve used this title before, but it’s appropriate for where we are. Between times refers to this time between celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas. A whole extra week of November after Thanksgiving. Some of you already have put up your Christmas decorations. We have not. Our Fall/Thanksgiving decorations are still up as I squeeze every last bit of joy from this holiday. Our trees have cooperated, and we’ve ultimately had great color.
From our walk with Charley.
Assuming, I’m feeling good enough Saturday, the transformation will take place then. Now remember, we’re in a small lake cottage, so it doesn’t take much. Putting up the lights on the fence is the most time consuming. Our tree is small, and I can handle it on my own. Unlike my mother who put some piece of Christmas in every corner of the house, I just do the family and dining rooms.
It also references my older daughter who is packing and moving her family from their house of about ten years in the neighborhood in which she and her sister grew up to temporary quarters while their new house is completed. I had planned to help with this process, and I did one day’s worth but haven’t been able to be as involved as I’d hoped. Not feeling like doing anything and not wanting to make my grands sick. Fortunately, her mother-in-law has been able to step in.
Our church is living Between Times as we sojourn in temporary quarters while our new place is remodeled. A little like the Israelites wandering in the desert, except we know exactly where we’re going. We are just unsure when we’ll get there.
I’m in Between Times with my last book. Finishing checking for over-used words before sending it to five Beta Readers. Hoping for a March release. I’m chomping at the bit to start a brand new story. Don’t know what that will be, but I have lots of ideas floating around in my head.
Today is the last day for the $.99 sale for VERMONT ESCAPE. B & N and KOBO will automatically go back at midnight. I’ll have to personally go in and adjust the price on Amazon and iTunes, so in reality you’ll have a day or two more on those. Please tell your friends.
After the murders of Jill Barlow’s husband and then her father, she flees to Vermont, but the Texas gambling syndicate believes she’s hiding damning evidence against them. To get it, they’ll kill again.
