Before I go any further, let's just get this out of the way right
now . . . WORDLESS WEDNESDAY WILL BE BACK THIS WEEK!

As for me, I've been back for awhile now, but I'm finally returning to blogging.
The holidays stole all of my time this year. That, combined with everything else going on with my father, made blogging take the back burner.
In between everything else, I also finished all of my beta reader edits for CHASING FIREFLIES.
It will be off to my editor this week.

Christmas and the holiday season turned out to be utterly relaxing and just what I needed. (Once everything was done, that is!)
My Christmas present this year:
A NEW KITCHEN!!
Now, that probably doesn't sound relaxing, but I was so excited for the transformation, I loved every minute of it.
Here's the before and after pictures.
In 1994, I thought rose countertops and rose walls were a good idea.
Oh yeah, and a flowery wall paper border.
The first thing I did was PAINT!
And cover the border. Not happy with that as of yet, but having the border taken down and the surface re-textured and painted will come next. (Long story!)
For now, white peel and stick tiles are the new border.
It'll have to do for awhile. That part of the project didn't turn out as planned.
Next, came THE DEMO.
And it was oh, so satisfying!
Then came the granite countertops.
Even when it wasn't finished, I was in LOVE!
Next, the backsplash was installed. It's a white
subway tile with a gray grout.
The final product!
Quite the transformation, huh?
Merry Christmas to me!!!
Moving on . . .
Special thanks to each of you for your kind thoughts and concern for my father. He is currently doing chemo and we are praying for the best. He says he feels a little better and his appetite has returned to an extent. Nausea medicines used during chemo are amazing. His pain is now under control with morphine and when I last spoke with him on the phone, he sounded a little more like himself.
And so . . . we wait . . . and hope for a miracle.
Below is a pic of my Mom and Dad that I LOVE!
Tell me about your holiday season!
Hope it was WONDERFUL!
