This is the season dedicated to Thankfulness. I love seeing people's "30 days of Thankful" posts on FB. Some, like me, have not had the time or inclination to post them, but have not failed to make my thankful heart be known to God.
I met with some family members this week from Springfield, MO and we ate together and laughed out way through about 3 hours at a restaurant. LOL. They brought along Mary's daughter, Mindy. Loved meeting her!!! We talked about family stories, some of which will be slipped into my books, Bad Blood and Sorrow.
Sam and I have loved our first week "retired". It still feels like a vacation though and not quite real. Of course I am still working...both in my field of work and my writing...but those are both fun and I do not mind at all.
Hope that the next time I write, I will be giving you a LARGE number of words written on BAD BLOOD, and say it is at the point of sending to the editor. I am "chomping at the bits" to finish and start the next one. : )
