This was a big week for winter holidays. Like so many others in this world, my family is big and multi-cultural, and we celebrate everyone’s holidays, because why not? Any chance to share the love is a good thing. So this past week we were blessing the Winter Solstice, lighting the first night of Hanukkah, and opening presents under the Christmas tree. I hope your holiday, whatever it is, was/will be warm and wonderful and filled with joy.

The DH and I are quiet animals in our celebrations these days. We watched Love Actually, Die Hard, and just for variation … Sully, which was unexpectedly very good. It’s definitely worth a watch if you get a chance.

rev-black-and-gold-holiday-giveawayDon’t forget my holidays giveaways! First, I’m running one through my blog and newsletter.

And now it’s back to work . . . because the holidays don’t mean I stop writing. 😀 My KATO is kicking some serious demon ass, and (cough) getting up to some other stuff with Grace. Hope you enjoy this last week of 2016—I, for one, will be happy to see this year join the dustbin of history.

I’ll see you all in 2017.
