Here is our youngest granddaughter attempting to teach our granddog (her uncle’s dog) how to play cards. She also tried to teach him how to change her doll’s diaper. He humored her graciously throughout the evening, and let out a large sigh of what I interrupted as relief when her mommy and daddy came to pick her up.
The weather is turning colder here, and I’m preparing myself for winter, which includes putting my Mustang in storage. I’m also prepping for the holidays. Last weekend our middle granddaughter sang in church. She was the littlest peanut up there, but sang at the top of her lungs. So very adorable! And today I attended a Thanksgiving dinner with the kindergarten class at our oldest granddaughter’s school. It was a lovely meal, made extra special by the company I was with. We will host dinner at our house next Thursday and I’m looking forward to the day of fun and family.
Oh, and guess what? I’ve completed my Christmas shopping. How I do love on line shopping! First time ever, but with the schedule I’m maintaining right now, click and ship is a blessing for sure. Of course, knowing what each the granddaughters needed/wanted made the shopping a snap.
Last week I was asked to write a story for next year’s Western anthology for Harlequin. Of course I said I’d love to, and I am loving it. I will have both stories done by their January deadline. (If I keep saying it, it has to come true, right?)
Next releases…A Soldier for Christmas will be released the end of this month. His Wild West Bride (an UNDONE) will be released Feb. 1, 2013. Inheriting a Bride will be released March 1, 2012 and The Cowboy Who Caught Her Eye will be released July 1, 2013 (these are both full length historicals). Those are the only dates I know of right now, but I’ll keep you posted. I must give out a heartfelt thanks as well. To all of you who have purchased Unclaimed Bride, thank you, thank you, thank you! You kept it #1 on the best selling list for Harlequin Historicals at Amazon for over three weeks! (A dear friend keeps track of those things and updates me regularly. Bless her heart!)
That’s all for now. Count your blessings and enjoy each one!
