Here Come the Holidays!

by Nola on November 27, 2017

Our family just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving feast and get-together. (I gained five pounds, so you know the food was delicious.)  Now I’m trying to wrap my head around the next four weeks of holiday preparations. I’ve done zero shopping so far and in fact have very few ideas for gifts. Every year I promise myself that I’ll take notes about the perfect thoughtful gifts to bestow, and every year I come up against the first of December with a blank list.

Help me out, people. What methods do you use to keep track of great gift ideas? Do you always manage to choose just the right present for those on your list? Or do you end up giving gift cards or cash to your loved ones? I’d be open to any ideas you have for me.

On the writing front, Ringing in the New was just published and is doing fairly well. It’s hard to be just one more Christmas story in a sea of Christmas stories! As of this week I’m back to working on the first full length book in the Everfield series, Making Merri. I hope to be done by mid-January.

It’s going to get crazy over the next few weeks. I may not be back here for awhile, so please let me take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones the very best holiday season ever. Take a few minutes here and there to notice and appreciate your blessings. I’ll talk to you all next year.
