This past Saturday night we gained an hour according to the practice of Daylight Savings Time. I certainly don’t feel as though I got enough of this thing called time. If I am honest..I want much more time to do all the things on my “to-do” list.
I want to spend the afternoons poking around shops with my mom…or working with her as she readies her yard for winter…maybe spend an hour gathered around a table with my family, laughing and sharing memories. Soon it will be time to light the tree in Abbeville, and I’d love to go there with my cousin and just enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. I’d love to spend a day or two tackling the mounting mountain of books in my “To Be Read” pile, and of course there’s the daunting task of writing my next books to share with the world.
Right now there are three books waiting in my head to come out for the public:
Night Music, the fourth Festival Series book,
Yesterday’s Mind, a stand alone piece concerning Alzheimer’s disease, and
Wayward Cowboy, a spin off of the Festival Series about this really cool ranch hand with a heartwarming smile and a past which he can’t seem to escape, no matter where he runs.
November is National Novel Writer’s Month. I am striving to write something every day, but I’m not participating in this daunting schedule because I just can’t commit. I want to work on my current book so I can tackle the others…Life is never dull when you’re a writer.
A few weeks ago I started going “LIVE” on Facebook….it was a lot of fun…and anyone that knows me knows that performing live is a definite spoke in my wheelhouse. I will start again in a few weeks…but as I am between Internet carriers, I’m kind of laying low.
One thing’s for sure…when I go live again, I will probably be in front of my Christmas tree, wishing everyone a happy, healthy holiday time.
Which brings me to another matter….the upcoming 2017 Community Christmas Dinner. This has been a family affair for my family for several years. We look forward to seeing old friends, the fellowship of a meal cooked by loving hands, and the inexplicable joy seen in children as they see Santa and get presents. No one pays for anything…everyone gets a gift. IF you find yourself with no where to go, or just want to see LOVE in action…please join us this year!!
That’s all for now…be blessed and remember…you are in charge of your time. Do what you want, rest when you can, and always try to share some happiness.
