Holidays. What do you think?

The last normal holidays were in 2019! What are you doing this year? Small family gatherings? No gatherings? I miss the way we weren’t worried before COVI-19 but now I’m letting go and not really worrying. I want to have my family around at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Life’s too short as it is.

Here’s my daughter with her cat. She rescued him at a dump. A tractor driver found a tiny little kitten crying loudly in a heap of garbage. Someone had thrown him away! The tractor driver dug him out and called someone he knew who called someone she knew and “Dumpster” found a new home with someone who adores him.

Its funny how pets look like their owners, isn’t it?

Okay, it’s time for breakfast! When I’m not too busy writing novels, I’m painting. Oh, yes, and eating. I like to paint things, not so much landscapes. I’ll throw in a few of my watercolors for fun. It’s all it’s all good, man. Saul Goodman. Did you watch Breaking Bad? Hahahahaha!! Great, eh?

I'm proud to say I'm a native Californian. I grew up in the orange groves of Riverside in Southern California, spent my middle years in Concord, California, and now reside in an off-the-beaten-path rural area called Kneeland, California. Kneeland is special because of the beautiful redwood forests that turn into gorgeous grasslands at higher elevations. I'll include some pics later on. The California Redwoods are a beautiful place to vacation if you are a lover of the outdoors! My husband, Carlos, and I live on a small ranch in this far-flung secluded hamlet surrounded by Redwood forests and their resident wild creatures. As you might imagine, this isolated lifestyle lends itself well to fiction-writing! My fertile imagination runs amok against backdrops of California's famous mountains, deserts, beaches, and the amazing bounty and variety of outdoor activities people gravitate to in the Golden State. When I'm not writing, I spend my time walking and hiking, enjoying nature with Carlos and our two dogs.
