Took a couple of extra days off to get a head start on outdoor decorating. We always put it off until the first of December and it turns cold so this year we said we'd get everything strung out and then light it around the first of December.  Only thing is it really will be colder in early January when we go to take it down.  :(  So far we assembled a few wire trees and some present boxes. There's a lot more than goes into my Christmas wonderland.
Anyway, a bunch of bulbs that might have otherwise been destined not to survive also made it into the ground today.  It'll be a while before they burst out of the ground and give thanks for saving their lives but at one more thing off my endless list. We even trimmed some branches off the crepe myrtle trees. Are we crazy or what? It was like a summer day out there today but word has it tomorrow will be a different story.
Won't be long until JUST ONE TOUCH arrives. God has blessed me with fourteen single titles, two novellas, and three anthology reprints.  Not bad for a writing career that took twenty years to take off.  God knew the plans He has for me and it's clear that once I made the right choice (to write books that honored him), success was mine. 
Ideas are falling in place for the new book. I have visuals of the characters, plan to place the story in Nags Head, North Carolina, and look forward to introducing the characters to everyone.
