All About Family

Hi All,

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving holiday. This year I had a portion of my family join me in my little home in Sacramento, California. It was fun to decorate, cook and get into the coziness of the coming winter. The weather was perfect for outdoor activities, getting to around 65ºF during the day with sun all around.

Before the Run to Feed the Hungry 5k (we walked it! So fun.)

My little, holiday decorated dinner table.

The next day we headed over to a cute town in the foothills of the Sierra Mountains called Sutter Creek.  Adorable.  Great local stores filled with fun items, wine tastings and happy people.  We sat outside along the creek and had a great lunch in the sun.  A very fun two days.

The remainder of this long weekend I have been teaching myself how to promote my book; “The Jade Serpent.”  Quite a learning curve, but I am starting to get a bit of an idea.  You may see an ad out there on Facebook and Amazon now.

Now to cozy up in front of the fire – the rains have returned and it is a deluge outside – so I think I’ll do a bit of reading.  My sister turned me on to these two books:

Now to decide which to read first!

Fall Friends in Deep Repose

Sitting by a cozy fire with my wonderful furry friends the other night, I was doing a bit of writing.  I looked down to see both Oscar and Albert (my 2 cats) all snuggled together.  Unfortunately if I moved to get my camera, I would disturb them so the photo below is from a sunny summer afternoon – but you get the idea.

And here is the poem I was working on, thinking of how perfect a world could be…

Oscar and Albert

Fall Friends

One rainy day, the fire a glow,

Upon a cozy blanket lay,

Two furry brothers in deep repose,

Quietly dreaming of that day,

Not weeks before, when sun did shine,

The birds and mice and cats as one,

In mounds of leaves, played for a time,

Together laughing, having fun.

Have a great weekend.
