MAKING A LIST...
(Not a picture of my backyard, but it sure is beautiful!)
It snowed last night in NE Ohio!
I discovered it this morning at 4:00am when I took my puppy, Charlie, out for a bathroom break.
My first thought was that I need to dig out my boots. My second thought was for Charlie. It was his first snowfall!
He was delighted! He leapt and skittered around in the snow for several seconds.
My children were also happy when they rose this morning. They suited up at 7:00am (thanks, Daylight Savings!) and ran out to play.
I don't yet have a picture of Charlie in the snow but here he is in his Halloween costume last week. Isn't he the cutest jack-o-lantern?
Last week, in an attempt to mentally prepare myself for winter (I'm not a fan of Ohio winters), my children and I made a list of what we're looking forward to. Watching Charlie as he experienced his first snowfall topped our list. We're also excited for Christmas decorating, throwing a few logs in our fireplace and drinking our weight in hot chocolate (marshmallows, whip cream and sprinkles included).
What are you most looking forward to this winter?
Speaking of things to look forward to, I'm excited for my January release of HER HOMETOWN DETECTIVE!
Can he trust her...
With his heart?
Detective John McTully is drawn to edgy newcomer Faith Fitzpatrick. So when the business owner is accused of a recent vandalism spree, he keeps an open mind. Tully knows he shouldn’t get involved with his prime suspect, but a Fourth of July stakeout leads to romantic fireworks. With the townsfolk stoking his suspicions, can he believe in Faith’s innocence…and trust his own heart?
