New Release Day and Strange Observations

Post navigation

Once in a Blue Moon officially goes on sale this evening! :woot: :memememe:

I’m posting this now because inevitably I’ll forget to tonight.

Medium is doing a special in 3-D. To get the 3-D glasses you have to buy the freaking TV Guide Magazine except most of the stores around here don’t put out THIS WEEKS until TOMORROW :wtf:

Holly bushes are called BUSHES for a reason. They are not supposed to be allowed to grow into 7-ft tall trees! :crazy:

I can trim shrubs and clean out every gutter around my house faster than my youngest child can bag the trimmings. :crazy:

Holly bushes are EVIL! I suppose I can’t really blame the bushes. It’s not their fault some idiot put the breaker box on the back of my house. How could the builder have known some idiot would come along and plant Holly bushes on the back of the house. Bushes you have to keep trimmed in case you ever need to get to the freaking breaker box. *sigh*

Four hours of yard work and I only got half the back yard done. Four hours of yard work = at least two days of aches and pains. If it hadn’t been for the kids, I probably could have done it all myself in three.

I want a chainsaw (for the Holly tree–and NO I’m not kidding) and electric hedge trimmers for Christmas.
Thanks to everyone to stopped by SEx yesterday! It was a blast! :kiss:

  2. Mega congrats on the new release, Cece! Wishing you TONS of sales and great reviews! :memememe:

    And you’re right about the holly. When we moved out here to Oregon I was delighted to have real live Christmas holly right in our very own backyard. Wow! I cracked my husband up when I touched the damned stuff and spewed forth with a string of really atrocious curses after I pulled back my sliced fingers. 😯 You don’t hear about the evils of holly in those nice Christmas stories. 😉

  3. Yay on the release. :woot:

    I manage to grow everything double the size the shop personel tells me it would grow. On the balcony. My potted herbs can serve as hedge any day. 🙂

  4. Oh and hey – I um, sorta stole :heythere: your book cover, except and link for Once in a Blue Moon and put it on my blog. 😉

  5. Good luck with the bushes…and the aches and pains. Our yard is pretty barren and I’m thinking that’s not such a bad thing now. 😕

    Congrats on the release! I’m looking forward to it!

  6. Thanks everybody!!!!!!! :woot:

  8. :woot: Congrats on the new release, babe! Ty and Betti’s story will knock ’em dead and have ’em beggin’ for MORE BLUEBONNET!


  9. YAY Cece!! Congrats on the new release! And in England, hollies do grow like trees. The house we lived in was called “The Hollies” because of two enormous trees (15-18 feet tall) in our front garden. As a matter of fact, the village garden club asked every year if they could trim some of our branches to use as decoration.

  10. Sela… I’m sorry that’s just evil! LOL

    Thanks Annalee! Thanks Kel (hopefully you won’t have to wait too long for another one).
