It’s hard to believe that it’s time to switch to new calendars throughout the house. 2012 certainly has passed quickly.
Since our last blog update, we turned our attention to the year-end holidays. First there was Thanksgiving in Tyler, TX where we dined with our future daughter-in-law’s family. A great time was had by all.
After returning home we started doing some trimming for the Christmas holiday. We kept our effort minimal. Next came shopping for gifts. It seemed like every time we left the house we found ourselves purchasing another gift for someone in the family. Since we were having our two sons and their families here for Christmas dinner, we wanted to make it something special.
Now that the new year has begun, our updated website which includes our new novel The Iris Covenant is nearing completion by our webmaster.
Even though our new novel won’t be released until March 5, readers will be given a taste of its content on the website. If you read the promo and sample chapter, you’d see this novel is a completely different genre than our previous release.
Catching up on movie going, we saw three good films. The first was The Hobbit which we really enjoyed as it carried the flavor of The Lord of the Rings and ended with you looking forward to the sequel. The next was Tom Cruise’s new film Jack Reacher. We were surprised at how entertaining it was. The last was Les Miserables. It gave you a strong flavor of how crude life was in France during the early part of the 19th century which is something you didn’t get from the stage performance. Also, we felt the stage version was more dramatic and more enthralling.
We wish you all a healthy and prosperous new year.
