Home Team Wins!

Moses Lake Hot Spot!

On the eve of my book signing I gathered with family and friends to enjoy pizza at Chico's. This was the place to go as a child and still is the place to go to get great pizza in my hometown Moses Lake!

The following morning my family and I visited the cemetery and placed poinsettias on the graves of grandparents and friends. The strange hat you see me sporting is the Christmas tree for my sister Margaret. She would have been in her twenties now and a huge goof ball if my other siblings are any indicator of what her personality would have been.
I set up shop in Fae's Books and Crafts. It was a quiet day in the shop until my extended family showed up to show their support. Yay home-town-team! 

 I set out a basket of candy to entice interest. I managed to get a few people to chat and enjoy some chocolate caramel nuget and chat about my books.

My uncle was very animated and so excited. He called me Jessica Fletcher over and over again. I appreciated the sentiment.

We ended the day by ice skating in the outdoor skating rink and downing some scalding hot chocolate. That's my "ouch-that-really-hurt-I-think-I-need-some-ice" smile.

  2. Very cool! Sounds like you had a good day. Love the hot chocolate picture ;)

  3. I sure did Andrea! It's so fun to go home for the holidays. :)

  4. You took me back in time so creatively, Amber, to when I too lived in a tiny backwater of a place where people shared one another's success. Thank you.

  5. Well nothing could beat the tinsel tree hat! Looks like you had a fun book signing - congratulations!
