it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas


Cue the music...

I have a tree!

And not just a tree. I have a decorated tree. With lights and ornaments. And I have a wreath on the door. And a few assorted decorations scattered around the house. I think I’ll even hang a few jingle bells from the antlers on the wall. Why not? It’s Christmas!

My terrible funk has miraculously lifted, thanks to my new book deal and all the excitement that brings, and just in time for the spirit of Christmas to work its way under my skin. What does that mean in the grand scheme of things? Well for starters, it means I went shopping today. I picked up some gifts for the kids…a few shiny silver jingle bells for the tree.  Oh, and some socks. It’s getting cold out there.

I even made cookies.

I have a sudden urge to decorate and bake. I might even paint something. Well…maybe not paint. But I’m definitely going to hang wreaths on all the windows, and some lights on the porch.

And more shopping. I have so many to shop for this Christmas.  I’m making a list and checking it twice. Gotta figure out who’s naughty…who’s nice.

And for my readers? Well…I have a few surprises in my stockings for you too! But you’ll have to wait for Christmas.

Ok…maybe I’ll let you peek….next week.

Until the next time…I’ll be at the mall!
