Christmas In July!

It's Christmas in July!!

Christmas in July! What a fun thing to celebrate, right?
Especially with the way 2020 has been going. I'm ready to string up some lights and hand out gifts! The Hallmark Channel puts on the holiday movies and I swear every year that I am NOT going to watch them because it's SUMMER not Christmas!
And every year I watch them and love it! haha

(I'm watching one right now!)

If you are one of the folks who enjoy Christmas in July, then this post is for you!
I know it's a bit humid out to be sipping hot cocoa by a fire, but you can still enjoy a sweet holiday tale of romance!
And if you're a book lover who secretly loves a holiday tale mid July in 90 degree weather, your secret is safe with  me!

Hi! Remember Me? It's been a while!

I know I haven't posted in a while...life is just different during this virus. It's boring, and confusing, and anxiety ridden...life as we know it is different and we have no idea when it will go back to normal...


And in the beginning of all of this I was productive. I finished two books. But the last month or two I've been struggling to find motivation. I think being lazy (let's call it relaxed instead, it's better, right?) has become my daily routine and it's comfortable.

Getting back on track is going to take work!

While I'm satisfied staying home most of the time, I do miss going to restaurants to eat. Yes, I am one of those people that isn't ready to go out to dine-in restaurants yet. I'm happy sitting back and waiting, and if you aren't, that's fine too!

I also miss family gatherings for holidays. We missed out on Easter and Mother's Day. I'm holding my breath that it doesn't interfere with Thanksgiving and Christmas! (Reme…

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all mom's (no matter if your children have 2 or 4 legs!) My day will be a little different with this virus changing things. We would typically have gone to brunch yesterday to one of my favorite restaurants, then today we'd spend the day at my parent's (we used to split the day between my parents and my grandparents) But this year, we'll spend the day at home, sending well wishes to my mom by text and phone call, I got french toast for breakfast, and a Starbucks Iced Mocha that I have wanted since March (out of the three local ones, two are apparently closed and the remaining one is super busy). We'll order pizza for dinner (it was my choice) and I have a homemade cheesecake waiting for me for dessert. Definitely different. And some of you are still visiting your parents - and that's perfectly okay. My Mom has MS, and with my son working in the public at the grocery store, I don't feel exposing her to whatever he has been exposed to …

Happy Whatever Day it is...

How are you all doing?
Are you reading more now that the world is closed?

I have to admit that I have done nothing but grazed on ham and potatoes since Sunday. It's like I can't get enough, lol! (I am so full of potatoes...) I joked that by this weekend I might have to fast, lol, not so much a joke!

But, I have been working on my Valentine's book (that still needs a name) and I hope to have that available in 2020. And my The Renegades Legacy Trilogy Book One is with my editor! Exciting times!

I will tell you before reading The Renegades Legacy Book One, reading at least The Renegades Book 3 - Playing the Game will be helpful.

I have a bunch of new ideas for Renegades and non-Renegades books, and I hope to continue being creative during this stay at home time. Luckily it is business as usual for me, but things are different here in my house. I am still trying to keep my son focusing on his school work, and now Mr. G is working from home.
But, as long as the child has his fo…
