Play Day and News

Wow, it has been forever since I posted anything here on our BMG blog.  I felt it was time to jump in and say a few words.  Let you all know that Tia Dani has been extremely busy lately.  We have two new books coming soon.  One, DEATH UNSEEN, with The Wild Rose Press and, THE BIRTHDAY and THE BET, contracted with Sapphire Blue Publishing. 

All work and no play gets old pretty quick, so yesterday Tia and Dani decided to take a day off from writing and play. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Olive Garden and sipped on the wine of the day. We can still taste the sparkling wine, it was so good–name of the wine unfortunately forgotten.

It was about then we noticed that one of Tia’s eyelashes was coming loose and it might be a good idea for her to buy another pair. Dani, (me) being the eyelash expert that I am, instantly decided a trip to the closest Wal-Mart should be the next stop. Besides I wanted to drive my new car. (More on this subject at a later date.)

Once at Wal-Mart, as we entered the store, the wonderful aroma of cinnamon surrounded us with heady delight. The spicy smell was awesome and all thoughts of eyelashes went on hold as we searched the area for the smell, sniffing up and down the aisles. We finally found the source–in a bin high up on a wall above our heads. Cinnamon pine cones galore. You know the ones, they are around every holiday, bundled in a mesh wrapper and fills the house with glorious cinnamon?

We had to have them, or a candle, or at least something that would give off the cinnamon fragrance. That sent us on another search – find the perfect cinnamon gift for ourselves.   Besides, we decided, there is so much that makes fall such a wonderful time. Cooler days, spectacular colors, hearty soups, crusty breads, and pumpkin pie. We’ve gained weight just thinking about what is to come.

Yes, we did remember the eyelashes after Tia discovered a 20 dollar bill in the pocket of her jeans. What a unexpected find. Now she had money to get her eyelashes PLUS something cinnamon. We both decided on cinnamon sticks. It was a good day of shopping. 

But, now the hard part starts, Christmas shopping for everyone.  As my family has grown so old, lol, it gets harder and harder to shop for them.   And my husband, don’t get me started on him.  He’s one of those guys that when he wants something he goes out and buys it.  No wish list for him.  Ah well, it will all come together and I’ll manage to find everyone the perfect gifts. Meanwhile, I’ll work on my own list.  Let’s see, e-book reader, boots…

Enjoy your day and happy writing everyone,

Dani Petrone
