Another Saturday already, OMG, the days go entirely too fast. Unfortunately it's not only the days but the weeks, months and years. That's how I got old, the grinch didn't steal the years after all.
Peter Cottontail comes visiting tomorrow and for all of you looking forward to his arrival, hope he brings you all the chocolate and/or goodies you desire. Me, as long as the markets don't run out of Dove Dark Chocolate, I will be a happy lady with or without Peter.
This week I'm giving another peek into Taming Maria. The long awaited marriage between Maria Elena Bartolá and Juan ntonio Cabrillo eventually takes place. The business interests of the Bartolá's include cattle, horses, and farming, with the Cabrillo family focusing on the raising and breeding of cattle. The story is set in California during the 1940's, amidst a backdrop of ranches and vineyards and two childhood sweethearts destined to become lovers. But the handsome Juan is fully aware that his bride-to-be is headstrong and tempestuous. It seems the only sure way to tame her is to give her a well-deserved spanking! The couple face hardship, adventure, personal tragedy and long periods of separation ... but there are some things in life that are worth waiting for.
Juan sucked in his breath as her father turned over her hand to him. The rest of his life was about to begin. He looked forward to the journey he knew would be filled with love and laughter. He knew because Maria Elena Bartolá Cabrillo had already provided him with more love, laughter and excitement than most men had in a lifetime.
The journey down the aisle was not always smooth as evidenced below.
Looking him square in the eye, she told him, "I would not marry you if you were the last man on earth. Get out of my sight."
"I will let you cool down Maria, but I will be back and make no mistake, you WILL marry me."
"Don't be holding your breath!"
He gathered his things and walked out the front door. Maria was fuming and her bottom was throbbing. Damn him, how dare he spank me.
