Every year, Margaret Maron invites our little writers’ coven to her house in the country to gather greenery for our homes. Today was the day and it was perfect: 58 degrees and sunny. Margaret and her granddaughter Natalie took us for a tour through the rosemary, boxwoods, cedars, holly, and nandina in the Maron’s spiffy new golf cart! Afterward we gathered in Margaret’s sunny dining room for lunch. The only negative was that Sarah Shaber couldn’t make it and the others in our group (Mary Kay Andrews and Alexandra Sokoloff) now live too far away for an afternoon jaunt. Katy (Munger) presented each of us with Santa hats and Brenda (Witchger) gave us all lanterns and little boxes of matches labeled with our book covers! Cute or what??
Now I’m home and my house smells green and amazing! How are you gearing up for the holidays?
