Enough of the hot by Barbara Edwards

I love each season, but I'm tired of being hot and sweaty.
Remember winter? Remember the snow?

My Yard
How about the freezing wind? 

The dog has to go no matter what the temperature.

Bundled up to shovel off the porch and walks.
 Time to go inside and get warm!

Hope that my photos made you smile.

My new release from The Wild Rose Press, Journey of the Magi, is a Christmas story and will be available on Kindle on September 2, 2013.
Widow Noel Martin never breaks promises, and she promised her kids they’d have Christmas at her childhood home in Connecticut. But driving across country takes money. Noel is broke when a snowstorm blows them into a tiny Minnesota café owned by a man who can change her mind. She accepts his offer of a job. Despite her attraction to him, she makes it clear she is only temporary help.
Dan Longstreet isn’t adopting any more strays, but he needs a waitress. Dan works so hard to make his café a success, he doesn't have time for love. Though Noel’s slender blonde beauty stuns him and her two adorable children tug at his heart, he denies how they threaten to change his life.
When tragedy strikes, their new-found love is the first victim. Noel can't stay and Dan can't leave. Will their journey be the gift that reunites them?

Hi Sandra,
Glad it made you smile.

Hi Jannine,
Thanks. I wish I had a picture of how bundled up I was.

Hi Margo,
there are things about winter I adore. A hot fire, a good book and a winter storm make me snuggle in. Sigh

Awesome post and pics, Barbara. I definitely cannot wait until winter. Here in Oklahoma we don't get enough of those snowy days, but I'll take whatever we get. Winter is my favorite season. Yes, I even love blizzards (as long as everyone is safe and at home). Being stranded at home during a blizzard rocks! :-) Your story sounds wonderful. I love Christmas stories and even the blurb tugged at my heartstrings. Be sure to remind us when it's released!

Oh, Barbara. Snow is a 4-letter word in my house! But I suppose someone has to love it! :-)

Barbara Edwards said...

Hi Alicia,
Journey of the Magi is due to be released on Sept 2. I'm so excited!

Hi Leah,
My husband hates snow, too. That's why we live in Florida over the cold months.
