I’ve been wishing for a respite from the relentless heat. Well, I didn’t mean via freezing temperatures. Be careful what you wish for.
I treated myself to this Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew from Starbucks, something I rarely do. Business was hopping. Visited my library and was greeted by the jolliest Santa. Guy is security guard but took the time to dress up and greet everyone. He was one of the best Santa’s ever.
I am grateful to have all my shopping done and everything wrapped. Packages were sent earlier to Asheville for the mountain family. They have frost and wind and very cold temps today. I just want everyone to be safe. My friends in New Orleans are preparing for power outages and freezing temps. Plants are covered and pipes wrapped.
We set up a tiny tree this year. It’s perfect for us right now. And kitties aren’t intrigued with it. Just a little something/something to help us feel festive. Publishers have been sending books for review that will be published in the next several months so that is keeping me busy.
Miss Mimi is not fond of the cold.
Jack and I are off to the Cape Coral Farmer’s Market to forage for fresh fish from Captain Gene for dinner. We’ll also pick up some veggies to go with. And since it’s a holiday Jack will indulge his sweet tooth with a slice of cake from the Cake Lady.
I received a review copy of a book coming in February just this morning. When I opened my copy of PW magazine this afternoon, there was a starred review of THE GIRL WHO TOOK WHAT SHE WANTED by David Handler. Looks like a very good mystery coming out in February. Thank you Mysterious Press. My review will run close to pub date in February.
I hope everyone gets at least one great book to read to end this year with. Be safe. It’s crazy on the roads.
I wish each and every one of you the best Christmas ever!
