A Live Tree for a Christmas Gift

No, no dogs or cats, LOL, but we did received this Norfolk Island Pine as a Christmas present.

I thought it was great! Very innovative and original and it's good for the environment.
Hopefully I'll be able to keep it alive even with the instructions :-)

I'm planning on keeping it as a potted plant so I can take it with us easily if/when we move.

So what do you think? Live plants/shrubs/trees a good idea for a gift?

Have you ever given one or gotten one?

The Christmas shopping is done!! Finished last night, just a few stocking stuffers to grab and 24 hr Walgreens is good for that!!

My friend and I had a girls day yesterday and we made the most of it! First a nail appointment, hey we have to look good picking out those gifts right, LOL. Then home to bake some more goodies. Yes, the kitchen is still a mess, but we had a grand ole' time!! Then on to the shopping. Oh yes the shopping. *Grins* we even went down and hit the adult store to get some private goodies for our honeys *batting eyelashes* I'm stopping there, oh and Merry Christmas sweetie *flirty wink*

Now I have to say we saw three accidents narrowly escape each other from happening, at least that same amount in what looked like drunk drivers at various times in front of us and the local kids singing karaoke at Applebees where we stopped to grab the sampler. Some of them were actually quiet good. Do talent spotters or scouts or what ever you call them even hang out in these places?

So made it home about 15 to midnight and watched some Japanese Anime. I also made a decision.
I'm taking my newsletter from monthly to quarterly. Not to sure how many of you go to the website to check it out, but honestly, I've been either busy or just too tired with the day job, home schooling and well life, to keep up the monthly pace. Writing's become 'the' priority when I have some down time, so that's where my energies are focused.

I hope everyone out there has a safe holiday, watch out for those crazy drivers and eat well!!

Baking, Breads and more

Cookies Pictures, Images and Photos


Some good friends are coming over today so we can do some baking to send out to family members not to close to us. I have the bigger kitchen, so it's the girls taking over and the boys are running for the doors :-)

I'm making my honey's favorite, peanut butter cookies and maybe a couple of banana breads, plus a little goodie I saw. It's in a mason jar, you put walnuts, pecans, cranberries and smother and cover it with honey. I bought some local honey yesterday at our produce stand. So the YUMMIES are on!! Woot!!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend! There's nothing like spending good times with good friends!!

Sequel being released MAY 2010

YAY, I can't tell you how excited I am to have A Lady's Challenge, sequel to my best selling Torrid title of the year, A Slave's Way Out, ready to hit the e-stands in May!!!! Is e-stands a word?? Well if not, YAY I just thought of one, LOL!

It took me a bit longer to write than I really wanted, but sometimes life happens that way.

Went Friday and finally had those two little snickery molars who always give me a problem, yaaaanked!! and I mean Yes they are out, both top and bottom same side!!!! I had full sedation, so I barely remember a thing Friday, which is Good :-D
Bad side, no real food for three more days. I'm on soft foods, which is ok, but know I'm wanting a steak, LOL. Doesn't that figure, LOL!

Walked around my little town's historic days yesterday. It was cool! We had a free hayride around the center blocks, walked down historic Avenue of the Oaks, stopped in the museum and bought some books at the library's book sale. I love it when I find those old books from the 1920's and 40's. I'm just an old book buff I guess :-) I only wish I'd had my camera with me, but I wasn't exactly planning on going anywhere today. So Next year will be camera year *Grins*

Now onto Wal-mart tonight to pick up a few Christmas presents and wrapping paper.

What's keeping you all busy on your weekends besides the holidays?
