Well, the kids are home this week for their school holiday break. We’ve been decorating the tree a little in preparation for Christmas. I know it may be a little early for some, but I like to get the boys picture taken for Christmas cards in front of the tree while they’re off this week. Seems they never have enough time otherwise. For 2016 they have Star Wars union suits to wear. They come up with a crazy and different t-shirt or set of pajamas every year.
Thursday, I will be at my parents’ house for the yearly dysfunction feast. Oh, so everyone doesn’t have those, huh. My mom wants to eat for lunch. Never could figure that one out. She tells me noon, and then calls at 11:15 to 11:30 to urge me to come down immediately. The turkey is always ready early for some reason. My parents live in front of me now. They used to live a whole quarter of a mile from me.
Last year for Thanksgiving, one of my favorite characters had a nice, relaxing few days in Punta Canta in my book, How to Capture Kate. Kate Hollingsworth-Collins had been avoiding Nathan Reed, and went away on a mini vacation with Leo Kensington. When she returned, Nathan insisted on having a little chat with her. Meanwhile, her grandfather informed her that Howard Kensington would like to meet with her to discuss her charity work. Why do I have a feeling that man is up to no good? Maybe it’s the way he stared at her at his son’s party. A chill runs up my back just thinking about him. The man was once involved with her mother for heaven’s sake.
The sequel, Obsession of Mine will be available shortly after the holidays are over and is available for pre-order.
Here’s a picture of last year’s tree. Hope you love my candy, cookie, and gingerbread theme. Several of my ornaments actually had a warning label, “Not for Consumption.”
