November

The weather is turning cold, the leaves are falling, and I await the first real snowfall of the season.

The house is being painted, and I’ve been shopping for furniture for Sanctuary, my lake place, with excitement. Just yesterday, I found the perfect table to gather around on Thanksgiving Day. (Cousin Kathy Bannon is the appointed cook, and she says if there isn’t a table, she’s not cooking!)

Although there is year-around gratitude around Chez Linda, November always awakens the spirit of Thanksgiving in me. What a blessing to gather with loved ones, laughing and telling stories, hoisting a wine glass or two. 2006 has been a memorable year in our family. There was some sorrow, when the uncles went on, but there were so many joyous things, too. Moving to this wonderful house, buying a second house on a beautiful lake, a new contract with my wonderful publishers, Harlequin.

In point of fact, I’m wondering how I’ll fit it all into my Christmas letter this year.
