We'll be celebrating a "Homeless Thanksgiving," for our neighbors and friends who, for whatever reason, cannot be with family. So far, we've gathered nine guests and have a communal feast planned at our Lake cottage. Enjoying mild autumn days, I kayak with friends whenever I get a chance. The Lake is very quiet and beautiful this time of year. We've spotted deer swimming across the cove, a loon, and a huge blue heron who flies away at the oh-so-slight sound of our kayak paddles hitting the water.
On another note, have you noticed every time you pick up a paper or magazine, you find something about bullying, especially in schools? Since bullying just happens to be the topic of my YA novel EAGLEBAIT, I am working to have it reprinted. I'd love to see it as a paperback or as an e-book. I'm learning a lot about e-publishing!
If Thanksgiving is upon us, Christmas will surely follow at the speed of light. Happy holidays, everyone!

What a gorgeous fall we are having here at Smith Mt. Lake! Only one frost warning so far and lovely, crisp autumn days great for golf, kayaking, and leaf-peeping. Kayaked with friends for 2 hours today. Saw a loon, a few other kayackers and one, just one boat. This is our lake at its best. Golf tomorrow--and who cares about the score?
