HWG Christmas Party



Saturday, I attended Heartland Writer's Group Christmas Party. We had a fun time in the sun.


Instead of the normal Christmas attire we celebrated a beach read and got out our grass skirts and sunscreen. We exchanged books that are special to us. We all had a great time and rediscovered the joy of writing.


Happy Holidays to all,

Benjamin's Quote

"Certainty?

In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes."

See taxes aren't so bad after all,

White Elephant Exchange

Don't want to over spent - try a white elephant exchange with your friends.

Pick out something in your house that you've never use and wrap it up to exchange. A fun way to see what others have in their closet and it's a great way to keep cost down while still having a good time.

The holidays are not about the gifts that you receive but the family and friends that you love.

De-Stressing the Holidays - Christmas Cards

1. Do Christmas cards early.
2. Save money by writing up a letter instead of the traditional card. This way everyone learns more about what's going on in your world and you save money too.
3. Do a few cards a night 5 or 10 until their all done.
4. If you put the addresses into the computer you can print them out on labels and avoid having to write them all out.
5. Or consider sending out a Christmas email and not sending cards at all.

And if you find you don't have time to send cards. Change to sending out Easter cards instead. You still keep in touch with love ones and you'll have more time to enjoy Christmas.

Christmas Cheer

Don't stress the holidays - If the tree doesn't get trimmed or extra cookies don't get baked, does it really matter?

Take time to enjoy what's important and the rest will take care of itself.

Question of the Week - College Football

If lower football divisions can have playoffs, why can't the BCS?

And the argument about them not making as much money is insane. It could add games to the current system and they could still bowls for the teams that didn't make it into the play-off.

So what's the really reason for them not having a playoff?

Just wondering,

Tina
