Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to each and every one of you! The goddesses would like to take this time to thank you for sharing, caring, and being such a lovely part of our lives. WE LOVE YOU AND HOPE YOUR DAY IS THE MERRIEST!
The goddesses wish all of you and yours a very, very lovely holiday! Please be safe in your travels. To celebrate, we thought ask a very simple question and then randomly draw two names from the comments on this post. Those two people will receive two autographed goddess books each. How’s THAT for some holiday […]
We asked the Goddesses what little bits of holiday wisdom they wanted to share with everyone, here is what they came up with. What bits of holiday wisdom do you have to share with us all as we rush around this weekend? As an early holiday celebration, we are giving away BOOKS! We have […]
We asked the Goddesses what they wanted for Christmas – here is what they had to say… What’s on your Christmas list?
This is the season when we are meant to be giving out to the world, giving thought to spiritual matters and pondering the sweetness of sacrifice. Usually, I’m 100% behind those ideas, but this year, I bought myself a present: This is not the greatest picture of my new baby, and she is not quite […]
Going by mall-time, Christmas time started last Friday. By Target/Walmart time, Christmas time started the day before Halloween. My families’ tradition is that you can’t play Christmas music until the day after Thanksgiving. And my tree went up on Sunday. But it’s still November, for crying out loud. It doesn’t feel like Christmas time yet. […]
Okay, Christmas is still a ways off, but I happen to have a Christmas book coming out in two weeks, so I’ve been thinking about the season already. I even have a video for my upcoming book, though it’s kind of short, just a teaser. Anywho, when I was writing this book, I had one […]
Don’t groan. I know people get Dickens crammed down their throats in school, and they aren’t keen on him as a result. But the Masterpiece Theater adaptation of The Mystery of Edwin Drood captivated me, and not just because it was an interesting completion of his last, unfinished novel. The part I got sucked in on […]
. . . whaddya get? This? Or this? Or this? Or this? What was the best present you got? The best present you gave? Did you get to visit with anyone special? How was the fooooood? It’s time to share!!!
Today, I am going to share a little secret with you. Ok, so not really a secret, but I don’t often let the entirety of this little bit of information out. Ready? I LOVE the holidays. I think, with the exception of dealing with the malls around this time of year, there is not much […]
This time of year, that is always the question at my house. For years, we dragged in a big tree, even though I have a very small house. The thing took up most of the living room. You couldn’t get past it without knocking off ornaments. The dog’s tail sent them flying, and often breaking, […]
Recently I took the train to see my folks. I’ve traveled by train often–in both Thailand and the U.S. But do those trips come to mind when I hear a train whistle? Nope. A train whistle catapults me instantly to my early childhood and my visits to my Maw-Maw and Paw-Paw in South Louisiana. They […]
The first day of spring passed by last week. I barely noticed. That is because the long, cold winter does not seem to understand that it is time to end. Today it was all of 32 degrees here in southwestern Pennsylvania. Enough already! During the first week of March, I decided to take matters into […]
Is it my imagination or are things coming and going faster these days? I don’t mean the days themselves–with age that happens, I know. I am talking about stores, consumer products, and things like that. The props in my world seem to disappear unexpectedly. All the time. Lots of them. I have had quite a few stores […]
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and all of yours from the Goddesses and their friends!
I was watching television last night and there were a bunch of ads for that new tape dispenser that attaches to your hand, to make it easier to wrap gifts. It got me thinking about low tech products that, once invented, make life so much easier that you have to wonder why no one thought […]
It’s that time of year. The time of year when I, a self-professed Perfect Present Shopper, painstakingly make lists, take notes, glean conversations for hints, and spend hours online and in stores, looking for just the right gift. While I’m doing this, my beloved husband Hot Cop is doing as he usually does this time […]
The day after Thanksgiving is more than just Black Friday to me. It’s the day CHRISTMAS season starts. Chocolate covered cherries, fruitcake and egg nog are on the menu. Elf, Love Actually and How the Grinch Stole Christmas must be watched. My DVR becomes overladen with Lifetime and Hallmark holiday movies. But most of all, […]
Having just spent over a week planning, shopping, preparing, then eating the first of our big holiday meals and then begun to get ready for the next round, I started to think about special food traditions. Those things we only have for holidays and why that is. For instance, we have appetizer buffet for Christmas Eve. […]
Dangerous in Diamonds is finished. Done. In the hopper. Put to bed. Out the door. My agent loves it. My editor loves it. I love it. We can only hope that readers do too, come May. (That is a sneak peek of the cover on the left, that I recently received from my publisher) Now I get […]
