Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone!
Charlie's Corner Cafe
Even though it seems as if Thanksgiving is being squeezed out with Christmas decorations in the store before Halloween is over and “Black Friday” sales starting around Veterans Day, I still hold out for that day devoted to food, family, and friends (oh, and football of course). We always spend it in Georgia with my husbands’ relatives and this year we will have almost a trio of infants. That would be two babies and one very pregnant mom who will be delivering later in the year. That’s added to the already older children so that it is becoming a decidedly crowded event. My husband’s cousin hosts each year, declaring that the borderline chaos and sizeable mess created are all part of the festivities – nothing that another glass of wine won’t help. Most years, the weather is gorgeous – that crispness in the air with still a fair number of leaves on the trees in a lovely mix of yellows, reds, and oranges, and clear blue sky with maybe some drifting clouds. Conversations cross each other and for at least this year again, we’ll have four generations present – a gathering that will be captured in photos. I know that not everyone can have a Thanksgiving like this, yet may the spirit of it embrace you whatever your personal situation might be.
And in the course of your travels or simply a day off, I naturally think that reading good books is in order. False Front is now available and the first chapter is posted for your enjoyment. Small Town Haven is alleged to finally be on the way from the printers and continues to sell as pre-publication until the finished product is ready. I should have more publishing news for you after the first of the year, although I need for a few pieces to fall into place before I can share what those projects will be.
