It’s the first day of September and it’s a beautiful 70 degrees here in New York. So why did I drag out my Christmas Barbie, bake gingerbread and put A Charlie Brown Christmas in the DVD player? Well, Jeff and I are both working on short stories for an upcoming Xmas anthology and frankly, you gotta do whatever you can to get in the spirit. I was hoping to find some balsam & cedar candles at the store, but all they had was Tropical Days and Fresh Linen…those are nice, but they don’t exactly help my cause.
