Been entertaining my daughter’s family this week, and hosting a little family get-together, so haven’t had time for writing or blogging. They’ve all gone home now, and the house is very quiet, but I find I’m still smiling. A lot. Because what makes you smile more than the people you love? Especially when you have grandchildren (and grandnieces and grandnephews) playing in your yard for a few days! Best of all, is watching your young ones sleep. So my ThorsDay smile for you today is a bit different. A picture my daughter took of my grandson, sleeping like only an innocent child can.Ā  Wishing you all sweet dreams, wherever you can find them!

    • Isn’t that just the truth!! And this little guy is SO entertaining. Funny, and way too smart for his own good. I’m also blessed with an 11-year-old granddaughter I adore, too. Grandkids . . . making life better for old folks since time began! šŸ™‚

  1. So glad you had a little time out with fam Marcia. I noticed your absence ;). Your grandson is precious. I feel the exact way about my grandniece. And funny you use the same term as I. In essence, I’ve been told, it’s great niece, but my sister kindly shares her only grandchild with me who has no natural children and I choose to call her grandniece ā¤

    • Call it literary license, Deb. šŸ™‚ I liked how grandniece and grandnephew sounded with the rest of the paragraph, but as my nephew’s aunt, I’m definitely Melinda and Owen’s great aunt, for sure. (In EVERY way, of course!) šŸ˜€ And no matter the wording, it was a GRAND time for me, and I hope for everyone who came. I’m STILL tired, though. Geeesh. Getting ready for, having, and saying goodbye to COMPANY is a lot harder than it used to be, when I was young and peppy! But worth every minute of it.

          • Are you kidding me? I started reading at 1am last night, couldn’t sleep. I had to force myself to put it down at 245am LOL! It’s so much fun to read when I know the author. I can pick off your voice in there Marcia! ā¤

            • Oh, goodie! I hope it keeps you awake tonight, too. šŸ™‚ And Sarah is my better half. She’s the rational, sane, generous side of me, plus she comes from here, so she sounds a lot like me, on purpose. I had so much fun with that “Bucket List” book, thinking it would be the only one I ever wrote. I threw EVERYTHING I had at it. Hahahahahaha. Hope you like it all the way to the end. ā¤

                • Someone in EACH of my books is a tea drinker, and yes, it’s because *I* am. šŸ™‚ In the WRR series, it’s Sarah. In Riverbend, it’s Maggie’s best friend, Willow Greene, who owns a little new agey shop called Candle Thyme. (Willow is pretty sure a cup of tea will solve ANYTHING. Just ask Hunter, in the 2nd book, Finding Hunter. She manages to get GALLONS of it down him, before he finally tells her it’s not his favorite thing. šŸ˜€ )

                  I know the south, and Florida wildlife & rivers, and a bit about the mountains, and a fair amount about what goes on in people’s hearts. So that’s what I write about. šŸ™‚ And tea. I know tea. And I may have mentioned that I have my own custom blends now, that I give away samples of at events. Like Sarah’s Favorite Earl Grey, and Willow’s Raspberry Cooler. I’ve got 18 blends so far, and they go over really well. šŸ˜€ And it’s FUN. Rabbit’s Hazelnut Cocoa is a crowd favorite!

                  Now. That’s more than you ever wanted to know about my tea fetish. šŸ˜€ ā¤

                • You’re too much girl! I knew about your tea, for we had chatted about it in emails, lol. Isn’t it interesting to find the little things we know about an author when reading their books. Because I know you, makes it that much more fun to look for your little ‘Marciaisms’. šŸ™‚ xo

                  Keep on having' fun on the Ridge. Hope it makes you smile a lot . . . until it's time for you to shiver, and pull the covers over your head. šŸ˜€

                • Oh NO!!!! Please don’t tell me it gets scary. It’s my bedtime read lol! I’m only 100 pages in – Mac has established he can be friends with Sarah, and nasty Lloyd put his plan in action for his cousin to deliver the address where Ruthie moved so he can ‘no spoiler alert’ ‘take care of her’. Now I’m going to worry about her until that nasty gets out of jail. Don’t tell me anything! LOL šŸ™‚

  2. I can’t tell you it doesn’t get scary. It IS my “mildly paranormal” series, after all. But I can tell you we aren’t talking Stephen King scary. And the scary bits are few and far between. You’ll do fine. I write ROMANTIC suspense, not horror, though I do insist the suspense be somewhat intense for a wee bit. šŸ˜€ After all, our heroes and heroines must have something that imperils them, right? Something to fight against, and something to fight FOR. That’s my story, an’ I’m stickin’ to it!! Now read on. šŸ˜€
