It’s Thanksgiving week already–I can’t believe it! We have a great deal to be thankful for around here, as you might imagine. A new barn for the horses and the staff house under construction, just to name a few. All the critters are thriving, as are the people. Since we’re all pretty much pooped, we’re spending a low-key holiday, roasting a small turkey and making as little fuss as we can.
The new book is out today, too. “The McKettrick Way” is on store shelves all across the country. It boggles my country-girl mind, trying to picture it. I remember way back in 1992, when “Daniel’s Bride” came out. It was my first book to make the New York Times bestseller list, and it had the most beautiful cover. I stood in a mall, staring at the display, and almost had to take my driver’s license out and check my own ID–that couldn’t be MY name splashed across the front of that book in gold foil, could it???
Plans for today include a conference call and some work on “A Stone Creek Christmas”, the Silhouette Special Edition that will come out this time next year. There’s always the possibility of glimpsing a moose, some deer, or the wild turkeys–that always makes my day. And I’m going out to see the horses, too. They worry about me if I don’t go out often, and with my foot surgery, I haven’t been able to ride April much. I need to tell them about the new horse, too. He doesn’t have a name, so I’m going to call him Traveler.
In the meantime, that turkey waits in the fridge. The leftovers are better than the main meal, don’t you think?
