Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

This year seems to be going by extemely fast and, unfortunately, I have fallen way behind on keeping up with all the things that have been happening in the past few months.  I will have to do a little back tracking to include some of the really fun things I’ve been able to do this year.  Some of the details might even make their way into a manuscript someday…

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and I have SO many things to be thankful for…  including my family and friends, my health, the words that have been making their way to the pages lately, my “real” job, and many other blessings.  God is so good!

Two weekends ago, I “ran away” to Winchester and checked into the George Washington Hotel — just me and my laptop.  By the time I checked out, I had revised four pages and created six new pages of material.  Now, I don’t know where these pages fit into anything yet, but it felt good to just be writing again.  It has been awhile.  It is a prayer request that I frequently ask people to pray for — that if the LORD wants me to, would He please give me the words and feasible plot line for the “next” novel…  This might be the start of the answer, but I’m hoping for much more.  (Any and all prayers are most welcome!)

Last weekend, I was able to go horseback riding — something I haven’t done since 2008 (the last time I was in Ireland with Bernadette).  It was a treat, and I enjoyed it very much.  Penni took one look and didn’t think my McClellan cavalry saddle could possibly be comfortable, but it suits me just fine.  The quarterhorse she let me ride took good care of me.  We rode for about an hour, on a glorious afternoon with multi-colored leaves and cool temperatures.  A perfect fall day.  We didn’t go far, however, as we could hear the hunters in the woods and the sound of gun shots gave us pause.  Another time we’ll take the trails, she said.

Next Friday (December 3rd) I have another book signing in Leesburg.  The place is called Shoes, Cup and Cork Club (across the street from the Court House, near Lightfoot) and the event is a fund-raiser for a non-profit organization called AART (All Ages Read Together).  I’ll be there with two other Loudoun County authors from 6:00-8:00 pm.  (If you have anyone on your list who needs autographed books for Christmas, I’d be happy to help you out with that.)

In the meantime, have a blessed Thanksgiving.  I hope that you will get a chance to enjoy family, traditional fare, and of course, good football.
