Hi there, guys and dolls! Well, it has been a while, hasn’t it? My girls, Andrea and Heather, have finally let me come out and play again. They left me swivelling on a rather precarious (yet entertaining) barstool while they got their personal stuff in order. They’re happy to be back and I am so pleased. More on that in a future post. There is just so much to catch up on, isn’t there?
In the meantime, they wanted to do something fun for my return (thoughtful of them for my fellow Santa Lucians as well :-)). I’ll take credit for the “Twelve Days of Christmas – Poppy Cove Style,” I’m just that kind of gal.
They however, wanted to do a little research about the Twelvetide, as they found out it was called. Turns out it starts on Christmas day and falls for the next days following. There’s something new – I always thought it was the days leading up, but it became apparent that’s a misconception perpetuated by our oh so commercialized, advertised modern life to gear up people to buy, buy, buy to the big day. I sleuthed out that’s the “Twelve Days Before Christmas,” not “Of.” Clever move or not, depending on your point of view.
Anyhoo, stay tuned during the holidays where I will be sharing my “Twelve Days of Christmas” Santa Lucia style from December 25 – January 5. And just for kicks, I’m going to offer my Poppy Cove Mysteries (STRANGLED BY SILK, DEATH OF A BEAUTY QUEEN and A NATE TO REMEMBER) for special pricing through the event. A great time to catch up on what you haven’t read or treat a friend to a little fun read of murder and mayhem for the holidays. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter to see the deals and join in on the song.
It’s nice to be back. I’d love to hear from you, old and new friends alike. Tell me how you’ve been and all your happenings. I’ll be sure to have more to come and I wish you all a happy holiday season.
