Happy Thanksgiving

Hello!  I want to take this time to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving. My husband Greg and I are going to spend Thanksgiving with my sister Tracy and her boyfriend Josh.

This is the time of year when I often think of how thankful I am for different things in my life.

Greg and Tracy are the glue that holds me together. Greg is so very supportive of all that I attempt. Our 20 or so years together have seen more ups than downs. He is my everything.

Tracy is not only my sister, she is my very best friend in the world. I could not imagine my life without her. I am so very thankful that she lives close to me. I love our sister night. It is pure bliss to spend quality alone time with you. I also love our movie nights with Josh.

I am thankful for my knowledge of crochet, without which I would not be able to do my charity work.

I am thankful for my Mom. She is no longer with us and while we had our rough patches, she taught me so much and the older I get, the more I realize it.

I am thankful for all of you. Without you, I would not get that warm feeling in my heart to write for my blog.In the comments section, please tell me what you are thankful for.

 

Too Many Projects Not Enough Time

Did you ever wonder where all the time goes in a day?  It seems as though I have just started on my to do list and it’s almost time to start dinner.

I have to make up my mind to tell people in my house that when I say that I will be busy writing…do not bother me unless you are bleeding!  I just get that good flow going and WHAM! I hear, “Honey, do you think you can come in here for just a minute?” And as always, I stop and go to where ever Honey is, thinking that maybe something is wrong.  HA! “Do you know where the remote is?”   It’s at this point that I want to kill something, because now when I go back to my computer and look at the screen, all of my thoughts have gone out the window. I sit back in my office chair, close my eyes and just breathe. Try as I might, the flow is gone. Maybe if I do something else for an hour or two. I decide to work on my novel another day.

I switch tactics and start writing for spookfest! birds in a tree  It starts on October 1st and I am so excited. Remember this web site Sisters in the Shadows. If you like weird, spooky, and Halloween, then you will love Spookfest! Which reminds me, I need to catch up. I only have a few things written and October is getting very close.

Thank you all for sticking with me. I am trying very hard not to write so sporadically.  I hope all of you are well and that neither Hurricane has caused any of you or your families any harm. Love you all.
