Christmas Eve – Cs and Seizures

This blog is unscheduled, off the cuff, and it’s going to be a hodge podge of stuff, so bear with me. It’s yearend, Christmas, and nobody’s going to read this anyway – but what the heck?

Firstly, an update to my post of earlier this week called “Stories from a Holiday Heart.”ย The publication of the book has been seized. I know that sounds severe, but I’m just playing with words. Actually, our delightful editor, R. Jeffreys is looking for a different publisher at the moment, so I will let you know when it is available again. Though disappointed it will not be available for the holidays, I appreciate your continued support of my writing endeavours.

Early in December, I sent out five parcels to the United Kingdom – Christmas gifts for friends. I am almost certain at this moment they’ve been seized by the Royal Mail system. They were all sent at the same time, and only one of them got through. My tiny “Eden’s Edibles” are probably in the “seized overseas” parcels department. Bah!

Jan 1, 2012 UPDATE

As of December 31st, the last of my five parcels arrived at its U.K. destination. I’m eating crow, and the recipients are eating my cookies! I extend my sincere apologies to the Royal Mail system. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shortbread cookies

“C” is for Christmas, something I now celebrate after not doing so for many years. I used to observe Hannukah because of the significant person in my life at the time. Now, I am happy to return to Christmas — tree, gifts, lights. The one constant, however, (that’s another “c”) is family and friends. Christmas has never been a religious event for me, but it’s always involved the people I care about, plenty of food, fun, conversation and laughter. No matter how you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, and my best to you for 2012.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family Eden. As a receipient of “Eden’s Edibles” I can say that they were tasty. Thank you.


  4. XOXO I’m fortunate to live in Canada… the cookies made it no problem! ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy your holiday, Eden, with much love from the East Coast!!!


  5. Eden,

    Thank you so much for this lovely post, and for the kind gesture of sending love and ‘edibles’ all this way! The Royal Mail is unfortunately no longer very ‘royal’ or reliable, your thoughtfulness and generosity has reached us all, I’m sure. Yes, may this holiday season bring you everything you hold dear, fun, fab food, people and lots and lots of laughters!

    You’re in my thoughts and in my heart ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t make a personal delivery next year, we may have to fly in to try your gourmet cookies next year ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I prefer Festivus, myself ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy holidays to you, Eden. You are an amazing woman, a absolutely stellar friend, and a gift to those who know you year-round. Love you!



  7. Merry Christmas Eden, sorry about the book and the cookies. I know it is frustrating at the present time. Hopefully it will be for the better in the long run (with the book) as for the cookies, well maybe they will show up today.

    Happy Holidays,



  8. Happy Christmas my dear. Lotsa love to you and yours.

    And the cookies…I think Tina MAY have gotten one of them. ๐Ÿ˜‰
