The holidays are still in full swing, but Christmas and my birthday have passed and I am skiing toward New Year’s Eve. We do have the day off, so I can write then take my time getting ready to go out.
The plans at the moment are for three stag women to go to the Plaza Club whichs is atop One Shell Plaza and has a dynamic view of the city. I wish it were black tie so that I could wear my long black dress. That was the dress I wore when I met Rod Stewart in Galveston the first time we went to the Moody Gardens Inn for their NYE bash. He was the “surprise entertainment”. When he sang Maggie May, he came through the people scattered over the dance floor. Face-to-face, close enough to kiss, we sang Maggie May for a split-second and a memory I’ll treasure forever.
Meanwhile back at the Plaza Club, I intend to wear a pink, calf-link beaded dress with silver shoes and whatever wrap the weather calls for. The weather in Houston has been very unpredictable. Last night, it was windy and cold. I stepped outside my condo today and it was much warmer and damp. Last night, I wore my black velvet Captain’s coat and a sweater to dinner to celebrate my birthday. Today, I donned a sweater and a quilted coat. Overkill! But I didn’t have time to go back inside and change clothes. Work was calling.
I’ve been hard at work (and it seems like forever with the Hols interrupting) on my rewrites for Celestial Sin about an angel, injured in battle, who falls into a woman’s arms and wants to stay there—forever. It’s contracted with The Wild Rose Press where Hot Spanish Nights is available as well as Linda Nightingale’s Black Swan, a spicy vampire story about people who willingly submit to the vampire for the ecstasy of the Kiss.
Happy 2011 everybody!
