I was afraid to look and see when my last blog post was, yikes! It's been too long, but I do have a good reason for the lack of posts. I am in the midst of writing a book for a publisher. It is my first book done with a publisher and it is a very different process then I am used to when writing my own books. First and foremost...publishers have deadlines! I do set my own deadlines when I work on my self published books but there is always a little fudge factor going on! For example, if my goal was to have everything to the printer 6 weeks before market, it usually happens about 2 weeks before market! That doesn't really work this time around so I have been incognito to the world for the past couple of weeks.
I can't share much about this project yet, but you will be the first to know more! My deadline for getting everything to my editor is next week and we are doing the photography today and Sunday. As you can imagine, I haven't had much time to even think about the fact that it is Thanksgiving tomorrow. I love Thanksgiving and love spending the day cooking. I usually try and add something new to the menu every year along with the basics. This time around......not so much. Let's see....there is a turkey in my fridge, Iv'e got potatoes, some sweet potatoes, apples for a Waldorf salad but I don't know if I have anything for stuffing....we will see if that works out or not. As for dessert....how about brownies out of a box?
One thing I know I will be doing is decorating my house for Christmas, including setting up the tree. We will be in Iceland for Christmas this year so I want to get my tree up early so I can enjoy it longer.
Have a happy Thanksgiving
