Happy Thanksgiving From All Shapeshifters to You & Yours!!!

My Canadian cousins already celebrated Thanksgiving last month, so now it’s our turn! My shapeshifters wish everyone around the world peace and posperity during these difficult times.d-002211

In Don’t Cry Wolf, coming March 1, the gray wolf pack is having a Thanksgiving feast, but not for the reasons we might have ours. Here’s an excerpt from Don’t Cry Wolf:

 

“As to another matter,” Darien said, “I want to have a Thanksgiving feast for the pack.”

            She figured the feast was a tradition they’d always carried out like so many people did across the States until she saw the questioning glances on his brothers’ faces.  “Why?” she asked, because Jake and Tom wouldn’t and she assumed something more was up.

            “A feast to give thanks that I have a mate.  Is that not reason enough?”  Darien’s expression was lighthearted, but the façade didn’t hide the darkness brewing beneath the surface.

            She offered a smile.  “I’m sure everyone will enjoy a feast, no matter the reason.  Free food always puts everyone in good spirits.”

            “Where did you want to have this feast?” Jake asked, his voice shadowed.  “The civic auditorium?  School gym?  The tavern, perhaps?”

            “Here.”  Darien lifted his cup to his lips.

            Lelandi suspected the worse.  Darien knew who killed her sister and he needed the majority of the pack together.  The feast was the battleground.  Or at least the beginning.  The battle would take place in the woods, secluded from town, perfect for a fight between wolves.

Enjoy the holidays if you celebrate them, but even if you don’t, may your lives be filled with thanks! We’re thankful my mother is well enough to celebrate Thanksgiving with us after she’s been so ill for the last 8 weeks. turkeydinner1

We’re playing Chicken Foot Dominoes after the feast, and the next day, we set up our Christmas decorations, as always. We usually have a couple of displaced college students eating with us, and this Thanksgiving will be no exception. 

 Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions you’d like to share?

    Wake up late, eat until I’m stuffed, then repeat the follow day with the leftovers. 😉 That’s pretty much my tradition. So far, I’m halfway into it.

    LOL, Marcia. I’ve been enrolling students in the online workshop, Jumpstart Your Muse, planting irises, daffodils and hyacinths, jasmine ground cover, pulling weeds, started the turkey, and am off to plant a couple of live oak trees and a pistachio. Then I’ll have run out of plants to plant!!! Oh, well, guess I’ll have to quit after that and stuff myself with turkey and the trimmings!🙂 And hope everyone leaves early so I can take a nap. LOL!!!

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I definitely overate and will be enjoying leftovers for a little bit.

    Oh, me too, Karin! We put up our tree and a lot of the decorations to work off the turkey. LOL🙂
