This blog is unscheduled, off the cuff, and it’s going to be a hodge podge of stuff, so bear with me. It’s yearend, Christmas, and nobody’s going to read this anyway – but what the heck?
Firstly, an update to my post of earlier this week called “Stories from a Holiday Heart.” The publication of the book has been seized. I know that sounds severe, but I’m just playing with words. Actually, our delightful editor, R. Jeffreys is looking for a different publisher at the moment, so I will let you know when it is available again. Though disappointed it will not be available for the holidays, I appreciate your continued support of my writing endeavours.
Early in December, I sent out five parcels to the United Kingdom – Christmas gifts for friends. I am almost certain at this moment they’ve been seized by the Royal Mail system. They were all sent at the same time, and only one of them got through. My tiny “Eden’s Edibles” are probably in the “seized overseas” parcels department. Bah!
Jan 1, 2012 UPDATE
As of December 31st, the last of my five parcels arrived at its U.K. destination. I’m eating crow, and the recipients are eating my cookies! I extend my sincere apologies to the Royal Mail system.
“C” is for Christmas, something I now celebrate after not doing so for many years. I used to observe Hannukah because of the significant person in my life at the time. Now, I am happy to return to Christmas — tree, gifts, lights. The one constant, however, (that’s another “c”) is family and friends. Christmas has never been a religious event for me, but it’s always involved the people I care about, plenty of food, fun, conversation and laughter. No matter how you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and my best to you for 2012.
