Christmas: A Time for Miracles

Looking for some holiday hope and inspiration?

Check out my latest post and review! 🙂

christmas-miracles

Check out my new review for this eBook: Christmas Miracles, especially if you are in need of some hope and inspiration.

I really enjoyed the holiday-themed stories in this eBook

In a world that often seems to have gone mad (just watch the news!!) it’s so easy to give up on goodwill, hope and miracles, big and small. But the world ISfilled with all kinds of good people and wonderful things, we just need to be open to seeing and believing that’s true. 

I wish you all… a magical and memorable holiday season!!

10 Under $20: Holiday Gift Suggestion List 2015 :-)

A holiday poem AND my 2015 gift suggestion list! 🙂

How the time is flying…

Happy Shopping and Holidays 🙂

VEGGIES, YARNS & TAILS

The
first of
December
brought thoughts
of Christmas magic.
The Day, so soon to arrive.
Our expectations ran high.
Through snow days and blizzards.
Making a list and checking it twice.
Santa’s letter printed and ready to mail.
Christmas baking: heady, wonderful aromas.
Pageants at school, with costumes of many colors.
The tall lush evergreen, centerpiece of the season.
We decorated so carefully; each bough lovingly adorned.
With some old, some new, every one used and none forgotten.
The long days of dark December. Finally, homework complete.
Sitting in the darkened living room; time alone to drift away.
Marvelling at the masterpiece of lights and shining ornaments.
Gazing far beyond to the bliss to follow. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
Christmas eve: midnight mass and carolling.Treats aplenty!
Then the long awaited, special treasures.
The secrets of shining boxes and ribbons.
Finally revealed and always worth the wait.
Off to sleep…

Hitting the Ice With Mr. Cheddar!! ;-)

I thought my readers at My Poetic Path might enjoy seeing this post too.

Not your typical “Stars on Ice“. 😉

Happy Holidays to Everyone!

I’m glad the Chedster is holding me up; I’ve never been much of a skater. 😉

Wishing you a magical holiday season and all the good things in 2015. 🙂

My Holiday Wishes….

Christmas for MPP 2014

 

The words to this beautiful song keep running through my mind lately.

Not actually a Christmas “tune” but the lyrics  seemed perfect for a holiday greeting

Well, the WordPress snow has now arrived so it definitely ’tis the season’ to think about gifts, of all kinds. 😉

I hope you find this recent post from Veggies, Yarns & Tails, helpful and inspiring.

I really do think heartfelt gifts are the way to go, all year round.

Holiday Haiku!

Christmas lights twinkle.

The Skater’s Waltz. A Swan Dive.

Snow softly falling.

Christmas Eve, midnight.

The choir singing far above.

Soon, gifts and giggles!

A new year begins.

Fresh palette, possibilities.

Raise a glass of cheer!

Ta-da…and the cover choice is:

Haiku Reflections ii front cover

Daisies!

It was a toss-up for me, between the daisies and the oak leaf for my new Haiku Reflections II cover but I went with the daisies in the end as I thought it was a better contrast with the pale green cover.

I AM going to use the oak leaf though, for an upcoming volume of Haiku Reflections, this one with a  different colored cover background, for more of a contrast.

Thanks so much to everyone who voted and left feedback for the various photos I was considering.

I loved reading all your comments. 🙂

It was hard to decide on just one photo, after reading all your great ideas and varied thoughts on the different photos.

The final, print document for Haiku Reflections II is just being processed over at CreateSpace right now.

I’ll also be publishing it at KDP as a Kindle eBook.

Both should be available by the end of this week, over at Amazon.

I also just posted my: 20 under $20 Holiday Gift Suggestion List for 2013, over at My Real Life Reviews.Hope you’ll check that out too. 🙂

I’m having a few problems with Blogger acting wonky recently. Readers telling me they can’t comment and some difficulty with posting over there too.

Anyone else having Blogger problems?

Happy Thanksgiving to my U.S. readers and Happy Week to All. 🙂
