An Apology and a Promise

Wow, here it is the beginning of December –is anyone else wondering where November went? Sometimes, as the days fly by, I wonder if time seemed to go by this fast to people who lived during the Regency –or pick any given historical time period. With all our modern time-saving conveniences, how is it that we seem to live at a frenetic pace? (I know this isn’t only me!!) Is it because we try to cram more activity into our days, simply because we can? Has time actually sped up (a theory I read somewhere…)?? What do you think?

The reason I am ruminating on all of this today is because, even though I knew today was my day to blog here, I never did have time this week to choose a topic or prepare a post. So that’s the apology –I’m sorry I don’t have an actual post for today!! I did consider asking among my sister Riskies if anyone wanted to swap dates, but I never even got a chance to send out that appeal. This is the first time I’ve ever just completely missed posting here.

The promise is that in January I should have some real news to share! I’m looking forward to that. In the meantime, I want to wish all of you the most wonderful holidays –whatever you celebrate. It’s the season of light and love, that we should try to hold in our hearts and share with each other all year long. I think our world needs it more than ever!!!

In place of my post, here are two pictures of what has eaten up my extra time this week –things I’ve made for my church bazaar which is tomorrow. I am the coordinator for vendors and have been fielding phone calls and emails from them all week, while measuring and re-measuring the church hall and tweaking the floor lay-out to make sure there’s room for everyone besides all the tables full of church-made items.  We set up today, so we’ll see! In the meantime, sending you love and best wishes. And an early “Happy New Year”!!

About Gail Eastwood

Gail Eastwood is the author of seven Regencies that were originally published by Signet/Penguin. After taking ten years off for family matters, she has wobbled between contemporary romantic suspense and more Regency stories, wondering what century she’s really in and trying to work the rust off her writing skills.

  1. Those snowmen are adorable, Gail! And yum! Cookies!!! Casa Schwab is still Christmas-cookie-less, alas, even though last year I swore to myself I would bake all the cookies once released from the university job. Ah well… By next week I’ll have a nice stack of paperbacks to make up for the lack of cookies. 🙂

    • Thanks, Sandy! I’m sorry if I made you hungry…. But, books are food for the soul –just as important as food for the body!! And work well as compensation when cookie-less. But I hope at some point you can have both!! 🙂

    The snowmen are so cute and the cookies look delicious! It is definitely church-lady busy season. I’m preparing for my UU congregation’s sale, which is next weekend. Maybe I’ll imitate you and post about that! So hard to find writing time at this season. Sandra, you go girl with those paperbacks!
