It’s 12 days until Christmas (I think there’s a song about that) and we have snow here on the Great Plains! If you’re from up north, you would laugh at our little snow, but it can shut us down. At least me.
I woke up this morning, looked out the window and said, “No, I’ll stay home.” I have Christmas baking to do and of course I can always clean, do laundry, and there are the final edits on that novel that need to be finished. Since I gave up my gym membership last March, I try to exercise at home. Not as effective, but at least I’m moving off the couch.
I love Christmas and the family dinners, etc. The dinner is small these days since we have grown grandchildren and then there’s the pandemic. We don’t even want to talk about that. But I still look forward to seeing my children, and their children, and eating too much. We will still celebrate Christmas.
My writer’s club had their first Zoom meeting, and it was mildly attended. We’ll do better in the future. I meet with my daughter and some friends for yoga online on Saturday mornings. I keep finding ways to stay busy.
I talked to LA Talk Radio, The Writer’s Block yesterday and I scheduled an interview with them again. I love these people. We’ve become friends and they are so much fun to talk to. But they are busy and the next date they had available was April. April first, April Fools Day! Perfect I said, it works with my personality. But I can discuss my latest books and works in progress. It will be fun.
I also ordered copies of Ian’s Magic yesterday and talked to a writer in the UK who wants to guest blog on my website. I can do a lot from the comfort of my love seat. But yes, I need to get up now and then. Maybe I’ll cook breakfast for a change.
What are you doing on Sunday morning? Is it snowing where you are?
