I love this time of year. [I say that a lot, don’t I?] Well, I do. The cool temps, the furry sock, the fur-family snuggling up like socks. It’s just so many kinds of wonderful.

One of the reasons I love it is I don’t get strange looks when someone says, “So, whadya do last night?” and I reply with, “I watched some Christmas program.” Yeah. They tend to frown on that in June through August. [Although they shouldn’t. Just sayin’.]

On average, I watch … read the rest. . .

The holiday season can bring families together, feelings of holiday cheer, and more stress than you can shake a stick at.

It’s also a season of “How do I possibly do this?” and “How can we manage that?”

Finding that perfect gift for someone isn’t always an option when the price tag is higher than your ceiling.

This post is late again, but that’s because I’ve been trying to think what I could possibly write. This week I’ve been overwhelmed with a sense of thankfulness and gratitude. Not just for the season that it is, but because so many things come to mind that make me smile and fill my soul with joy.

Yes, thankfulness is what this post is about.

  1. Words. This goes without saying (no pun intended, y’all), but without words, I’d be lost. I am strongest, healthiest, happiest, when

Five Things Friday: November in California

Ahh, winter. Wait. What? It’s only November. Okay. Ahh, autumn.

Somewhere.

Sometimes here in the desert. But not too much. And not too often.

“Such as?” you ask. Hey. Someone asked, or I wouldn’t be writing this post. Okay. You got me. It was me. Still, as I’m screaming to nobody in my car while driving Bear Valley Road (much to the attentions of other drivers, mind you), … read the rest. . .

I know this may come as a shock to y’all, but I like reading. Almost as much as writing.

And while I’m a fan of reading something new, I also enjoy revisiting my favorite stories.

I recently compiled a list of books to read in the next few weeks, and well, let’s just say I think I’m set for the next year.

Here are my five favorite books to read each holiday season:

  1. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. So, technically, this is a series
