the Christmas Swap... My 1st Christmas Book of the Season!

 I'm so excited! It came! 


My first Christmas review book!


The Christmas Swap


by Melody Carlson


She's one of my favorite Christmas novella authors.


I start reading Christmas books in September.


That's when publishers send them out for review.


I don't mind. 


(Something unpleasant must have happened there!)


All better!


 I enjoy reading Christmas books all year round.


My little dog Penny likes to lie with me while I read.

The temperatures have been getting down in the fifties here in Southern Missouri.
Some of the maple trees are showing color early. 
They usually get showy in early to mid-October.
We'll just have to see what it all means. 

Enjoy some quiet happy moments
as you await the change of seasons whether it's
summer to fall 
or 
winter to spring
where you live.
God bless you all!

Laura
Happy at Home
and
Falling for Autumn

  1. Am glad your book came and that you are enjoying it. I know how much you enjoy reading and Christmas both! The weather has been beautiful and I'm so glad that autumn is on its way! I've heard that we're supposed to have a colder and snowier winter than usual. Maybe we'll get a white Christmas! Blessings, my friend! <3

    1. OH Rebecca! 
      A white Christmas would be lovely. It seems like every year we get a snowy or icy forecast, but it doesn't materialize. However, there is one maple in our neighborhood that has not only turned but has leaves dropping! Since this is so early in the season, maybe winter will be longer. We shall see. ~smile~Hugs to you dear friend! Call me when you're in town. Maybe we can spend a few minutes (or more) together.

    1. Yes, we have some trees turning here in Southern Misosuri. That always makes me think about Christmas. I think it's from all the years of making Christmas gifts for my littles. They're all biggles now!

  8. QUE LINDA ESTA LAURA, SE LA VE MUY BIEN Y ESE COLOR DE CABELLO, LE FAVORECE. NOSOTROS ESTAMOS ENTRANDO EN LA PRIMAVERA, LAS HOJAS DE LOS ARBOLES EMPIEZAN A APARECER, LAS FLORES, LAS PLANTAS, TODO ESTA A PUNTO DE SALIR DESPUES DEL FRIO INVIERNO, PREFIERO EL FRIO, AMO LOS DIAS DE INVIERNO, PERO COMO DIOS HIZO LO UNO Y LO OTRO, ME TENGO QUE CONTENTAR CON LO QUE SE VIENE. BENDICIONES QUERIDA HERMANA EN CRISTO.

    1. Translation per Google Translate:
      HOW CUTE IS LAURA, IT LOOKS VERY GOOD AND THAT HAIR COLOR, FAVORS HER. WE ARE ENTERING THE SPRING, THE LEAVES OF THE TREES ARE BEGINNING TO APPEAR, THE FLOWERS, THE PLANTS, EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO LEAVE AFTER THE COLD WINTER, I PREFER THE COLD, I LOVE THE WINTER DAYS, BUT LIKE GOD AND MADE IT ONE THE OTHER, I HAVE TO BE SURE WITH WHAT IS COMING. BLESSINGS DEAR SISTER IN CHRIST.
