Friday Funnies: Silver Linings!

Hello, Posse!

I hope things are going great wherever you are! We are fast approaching Yule, Christmas and the start of Kwanzaa (are there other holidays you celebrate?). I don't know about you, but I'm feeling a tad burnt out right now and looking to do things to replenish my energy and motivation. We haven't been able to take a vacation since 2019 and it's starting to wear on me.

I think I personally need to do a bit of self-care and will be taking some time off from blogging and marketing from December 24th to January 3rd; just a week. I'll try to write ahead and have things scheduled to automatically post, but the program I usually use for that is highly unreliable (and a regrettable waste of money) so we will see if they go through. I might just try scheduling them manually on each social media site. It's more work, but at least I would know they would actually post.

Don't Worry. . .

While I may be taking some time off the social media, I will not forget about the freebies we have coming your way Christmas Eve! Join my mailing list, you will never miss out on news or upcoming release dates, plus you get to read the first chapter of Into the West: The Orphan Train for free. If you haven't read my books, this is a great way to try them out with no risk to you or, if you have Kindle Unlimited, the entire Into the West Saga Serial is available to read free with your subscription.

But wait, there's MORE!

If you sign up before midnight CST on Dec 22, 2021, you will get a free Into the West Saga Serial Christmas Companion Book and a Free Family Fun Book as well. It's filled with great puzzles, trivia, and so much more. Just go to our subscribers page (<--- click here) and give us your name and email address.

The mailing list is free to join, quit anytime, no strings attached . . . ever!

What have you got to lose? Join us today and start reading!

That concludes the business portion of this blog!

We return to our regularly scheduled nonsense.

A definite silver lining for us is P.R. will be off work from next Monday until well into January. It will give me more time to write because P.R. will take over more of the cooking duties since there will not be online meetings until 7 pm for a while. It will be a nice break for both of us! P.R. loves to cook and I love not having to cook once in awhile.

While we are both tired from work, we are thankful that we have work to do. So many are still struggling with employment and at the holidays that just increases stress. We may be living under very strict health regulations, but we are healthy. I may be very tired of deciding what to cook every night, but we have food to eat and a safe place to cook and sleep. We have so many silver linings on every small cloud in our sky, and for that we are grateful! That was my attempt to find a creative way to say we are blessed even when stressed!

I hope each and every one of you are blessed as well, but without the stress. I hope your sky is so filled with silver linings this holiday and into the new year that it is literally blinding to behold! I hope my books and blogs help bring a little joy and entertainment into your days even if it is to just groan as how bad my "Dad Jokes" are.

Speaking of which . . . it's time for the jokes!!!

Have a wonderful weekend, Posse!

And happy holidays!
