HAPPY HOLIDAYS, Y'ALL!
After living in the hustle and bustle of Houston, Texas for most of my life, I can say with certainty that celebrating the holiday season in Lavender, Texas - in the heart of the Texas Hill County - is literally a breath of fresh air. Hitchcock, my cat, and I have already decorated our Christmas tree. As usual, he can often be found sitting under the tree - when he's not out getting into mischief, that is.
Thomas did a great job of decorating the grounds of Around-The-World Cottages. Aunt Rowe and her friends are practicing to sing with the local choir for their upcoming performance on the town square. Glenda is baking cooking, cookies, cookies. I helped Tyanne with her book sales at half a dozen holiday bazaars in neighboring small towns over the past month - and signed dozens of copies of my first published mystery novel for eager readers.
Our annual guests, octogenarians Nathaniel and Ivy Chaney, are coming to stay in the Athens cottage again this Christmas. They love to tour the town and look at all the pretty Christmas lights. The Athens cottage is a special place for the couple - that's where Nathaniel proposed to Ivy five years ago. They married on the cottage grounds the following day and swore to return every year to celebrate their anniversary, Lord willing.
Luke and I plan to ride the horse drawn carriage on Christmas Eve. I wonder what our future holds, especially when I see the Chaneys' happy and glowing faces. Could that be me and Luke many years from now? Thinking about the possibility warms my heart.
My biggest surprise this holiday (so far) is the fact that Aunt Rowe has accepted a dinner invitation from Sheriff Crawford - FINALLY - and they might even cozy up in the horse drawn carriage afterwards. Heaven forbid I should tell Aunt Rowe what to do, but I sure wouldn't mind the sheriff becoming my "Uncle Jeb" one day. It's too late to make that my Christmas wish for this year, but I can begin my wish list for 2020, right?
I'm so pleased that you've joined us here at Killer Characters for our annual Season's Readings book giveaway. I'm going to give away a copy of a Bad Luck Cat Mystery - #4 - The Black Cat Steps On A Crack. Leave me a comment about what you're most looking forward to this holiday season. Comments will be accepted through 10 PM on December 16, 2019. The winner will be randomly drawn and announced in the comments on the morning of December 17. Good-luck and happy holidays.
