Because Advent doesn’t start until December 3rd this year, I have chosen to again update you on the events of my personal life in November.
The big one for Hubby and me was our 49th wedding anniversary. We went out to eat at Cracker Barrel. He bought me one dozen long-stemmed roses. To mark the occasion, I had purchased flowers for the church altar.
Our Drama group at church presented a short play entitled “Thankfulness.” This was one I wrote and directed. The congregation received it well; we heard lots of compliments about it.
I had two book signings. The first one was at a local gift shop. This was a learning experience for me. For the second one, I participated in an Artisan Fair at our local library. The weather did not cooperate. I was able to talk to some people about my book and sold a few. In spite of the weather and the low turnout, this was my best event.

Just past the middle of November, I received Hearing aids. They help with some issues I have had that caused me some concern.
I started doing research on a new book. I call this project, “My obedience project.” It is in a genre that I thought I would never write in. More about this project later.
A few years ago, I participated with some fellow bloggers in a small group that once a month would pull out old journals and post an entry, adding updates if we chose to. The group went by the name “Random Journal Day.” The one who started it, Dawn Paoletta, Enthusiastically, Dawn has published a book entitled “Journaling for Discovery and Delight.” Here is the link to it, Journaling for Discovery and Delight I'll have more on this later.
During the month of December, I will post thoughts about the Advent season. I will also plan for 2018 for my monthly themes and confirm my choice for my word of the upcoming year.
Please be in prayer for me this winter as I consider more effective ways to market my book.
