It’s a cold, blustery day in Texas. We have a fire going for the old bulldog, and my Hokkaido milk bread is slowly rising. Today is fresh bread and leftovers dinner. It’s nasty outside, but nice and warm inside, and it’s a cozy, quiet day.
I know we haven’t been around much lately. We’re working on an overgrown short story. Well, it was supposed to be a short story. Jeaniene Frost has been making savage fun of me, because when I told her the original idea, she laughed at my projected word count, and now she and Gordon get to repeatedly tell me “I told you so.”
It’s been eating all of our energy and time. Mod R has read the first half, and she says it’s not terrible, so we’re happy with that. We’re hoping to finish soon and then we’ll be a bit more present.
I just wanted to let you know that we appreciate you all, we read your comments, and we are both grateful that you are here, reading our work, talking to each other, and hanging out. BDH is the best.
I need to make milk bread tomorrow.
Thanks for feeding us, but make sure you do some self-nourishibg, too. We can re-read.
Moderator R says
I will confess I, too, was a doubting thomas about the “under 20 k” estimate ????
Judy Schultheis says
Whatever it takes to tell the story properly. We’ll buy it.
Big Mike says
Heck, a lot of — myself included — would pay good money for for a copy of one of your grocery lists. I hope you enjoy your Texas Thanksgiving despite the work your are doing on the new project.
Ahhh, are we ever going to get the answer for that snippet from November 3rd?
Joann K says
Y’know, based on the cooking that’s been mentioned here, that grocery list does sound interesting ….
Maria R says
Wes d says
But more words = longer story sooooo….I fail to see a problem with this situation ????
Too much of a good thing is great. – Mae West
Can I get a witness?
Megan W says
Have fun writing it!
No, thank you for all the wonderful stories you’ve given us!
I’m in the northeast and it’s cold here too. Thankfully, I am not in Buffalo and we are not seeing that much snow. I really feel for those in Western NY – what a mess. I hope any BDH in that area are staying safe.
Thank you for all that you do. I can’t think of any other authors that have an active blog and such a wonderful community following it. It’s a bright spot on the Internet. Happy Thanksgiving and stay warm out there, everyone!
Yes! I looked at the photos, so so awful.
trailing wife says
I grew up in Buffalo, and at the moment Mr. Wife and I are hoping really hard that they’ll get the roads plowed before we head in that direction on Tuesday to join his family for Thanksgiving. At lunchtime today my darling mother-in-law said she had about 6’ of snow… so it’s getting interesting over there.
Still, they’re used to that kind of thing, so pantries are stocked by the end of October, just in case, and Buffalo has more snowplows than anywhere else in America.
they borrowed some from Rochester too.
And are still under travel advisories.
Drive safe and drive smart!
trailing wife says
Thank you for your good wishes.
In the end we didn’t go. Even as my darling mother-in-law was dug out, two of her young descendants (great-grandsons, one for each of the granddaughters) tested positive for Covid, so Thanksgiving was cancelled. Or possibly postponed — we hope to try again on the 5th, weather and health permitting.
❤️❤️❤️love all your books. I’m sitting home now watching my beloved GA Bulldogs play football and eagerly awaiting your next release- no matter what it is. I’ll take anything. ???? Thank you so much for enriching my life with your books.
We love you, House Andrews! Happy Thanksgiving. This year, I am thankful for many things, which include HA And the BDH community!
Aman Sidhu says
We love your work, you do something that makes thousands of people around the world happy. I’m looking forward to reading your latest ♥️. Much love and have a wonderful cozy weekend!
Janeen Horne says
Cheryl M says
Enjoy your fall-sounding day and fire in the fireplace. And, if you don’t make it back here before then, have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Anna L says
Your work is so phenomenal that i dont want to start new books and just want to cozy reread. i have read the inkeeper books so many times and im really enjoying the graphic audio adaptations of them, but i notice all the little sentences and scenes they took out. Thank you for all your work and all the joy you bring to us.
Thank YOU for the wonderful books. They are my favorites and I re-read each series every year. I can’t wait for merch and new Innkeeper (I don’t let myself read the weekly installments, I wait for the final version).
The mystery project is going like the ICs latest. Started as novella, then end up as novel plus.
Happy thanksgiving week. Thanks for all the fun reads i’ve had since discovering you both
A short story? OMG I’m so excited! Crossing my fingers that it’s either something Kate Daniels or about George and Jack! Thank you so much!!!
Michael I says
I have this mental image.
(Three years from now)
Q: So how did this new series come about?
A: It was supposed to be a short story and it just grew…
Hugh started out as an April Fool’s joke. That still cracks me up.
Patricia Schlorke says
The power of the Horde is mighty. ????
Judy Schultheis says
Me, too. I was starting to laugh about that when I got to your comment.
They made him an utterly believable hero, and he’s still a world-class asshole.
Thanks to you for keeping up with our characters frenzy and lack of p*atience!
And to Mod R for entertaining us!
I’ve lost count of how many, many, many times I’ve re-read all of your books 😀 You’re the absolute best! Happy Thanksgiving! ❤️
Donna A says
Enjoy your bread and make sure you all keep yourselves fed and rested when working hard.
Diane Mc. says
We will enjoy the story whenever you finish it!
P.S. This rain in San Antonio makes everything cold.
Sherri Sirwaitis says
We love your work and are grateful for all of your stories (be they sort or long)! Wishing you a warm and happy holiday.????❤️
Doing a re read of Innkeepers and forget we ‘meet’ George and Jack in Clean Sweep even if no words are exchanged, definitely the ‘dead’ falcon that gave it away.
Happy thanksgiving to you all too! Hopefully it will warm up a tad next week. Brrr here in Austin.
ModR has done an excellent job of keeping us amused! Hopefully, the BDH is being fairly well behaved while you word wrangle.
The new FrInnday interviews are a delight — especially now that there is double-the-fun anticipation: Who will be the interviewee? Who will be the interviewer?
We love House Andrews! You are phenomenal writers, of course, but more importantly to me, you are good people.
HA gives so so much to their fans. And you still appreciate the BDH even through our, ahem …. “issues”.
Happy Thanksgiving to all your ohana! Eat well and enjoy each other.
Thank YOU for writing the books, reading the comments, and hanging out with us ????
I look forward to your new projects, and until then am happily spending time on the many new hobbies (Viki, Tapas) I am totally blami- giving you credit for ????????
Let’s just face it, you have such great story ideas with world building, complex characters, and then the plot that there’s just so much to write. <3
Love your writing. Use your words. The heck with the rest of us. Because in the end we all want to read it.
Hope your bread comes out awesome. And thanks for all your words and worlds.
Ps . Love my wood stove this time of year. So do my cats but they’re happy to use me as a hot water bottle. Even though they each have their own electric cat beds.
We are thankful and grateful to all House Andrews members, immediate and extended, that feed our minds and our souls. We can wait for the elongated “short” story. We will read the blog and reread our tattered copies of our favorites.
The setup for your day sounds wonderful. I’m about to make chicken soup. It’s cold and rainy here. We have a new roof and are warm and dry. I love hearing about all the extra words. can’t wait! ????
The lovely smell of fresh hot bread is wonderful and then you get to eat it, yum! Happy to hear another story on the way.
Dawn Emerson says
You appreciate US??
When we appreciate you and all the fun you provide us???
You make our weeks, and we appreciate all you do!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Couldn’t have said it better.
Mmm! Fresh bread and leftovers. A very good Saturday night supper.
Old dogs like cozy fires – hugs to your furry crew!
And a new story/adventure to look forward to!!
We love ya! I haven’t been as present myself because of a number of real world problems, including my mom’s passing in September. I feel like I shut down to the point where I couldn’t do hardly anything I enjoyed for quite a while and I just have to slowly work back up to it – including reading Innkeeper. Thank you for this very cozy and happy update. I needed it today.
So sorry for your loss! That’s very normal feeling, don’t be hard on yourself. It takes quite a while to start feeling like the day is bright again, made no easier by having to be productive at work! Hang in there!
I am so sorry. The feeling of loss does get duller with time, but there are moment when I still intensely want my mom. I wish you peace and healing this holiday season.
((Hugs)) I’m sorry for your loss.
Bill G says
Lovely; thank you for all you give us.
Debra Hoffmaster says
Have a very happy Thanksgiving. Certainly we are thankful for you and your stories
Wahida Mohamed says
Another bread recipe to try..and another story to look forward to, thank you! Nothing you write can ever be terrible and BDH rocks for sure❤️
Thank you for the many hours of reading pleasure and letting us get immersed in so many fascinating worlds! And thank you into the fun interviews that you post giving insights into some of our favorite characters.
Ooooo over grown short story! If I wasn’t so comfie and warm, I’d probably get up and do the happy dance. Something else to look forward to is never bad in my book!
It IS a nasty day. I tried to walk the pup I’m sitting on (going to be a true statement if she doesn’t relax!), but while she’s a bundle of energy that’s driving me crazy, she doesn’t want to go out in the cold rain either. Hopefully we can get a couple long ones in tomorrow before the rain cycles back in Sun night!
I actually thought about making bread today, so I’m envious. There’s a yummy onion roll that I’ve been buying for years at my local organic grocery, but they’ve not had it in months now and I’m having withdrawal. I got as far as French onion soup and that’s where my kitchen motivation promptly died. At least there’s new soup for tomorrow!
Maybe I’ll dig out the yeast and test it later for life. It’s pretty old. And I did find my Fleischman’s bread book. They’ve got a great refrigerator rising roll that I remember with fondness. It just sounds so much like work heh.
Enjoy the fresh bread. It’s the best darn aroma as it bakes!
I like that description – overgrown short story. Now I picture the editors with pruning shears. ????
If you keep your yeast in the freezer it’s good for years. Just let it warm up for a few minutes before using.
I make Easy Peesy (not a typo, really 2 e’s, you can look it up online) French bread when I want something quick and easy. I can have a small loaf ready in about an hour. Soup however is beyond me, I never seem to get it right.
♥️ grateful for your wonderful books
Is it the dragon riding snippet? I hope it is. I love dragon books and there aren’t enough good ones out there.
Is 20k word count a short story or a novella? Will it really be only 20k?
Moderator R says
It will be as long as it needs to be, I think it’s better if we don’t examine things too closely at the moment ???? and let House Andrews write the story. Believe me, you want to hear this one!
A novella is usually 20-40/45 k, short stories and novelettes are under 20 k.
Who needs those pesky categories anyway? HA stories are epic at any length – so bring on the Godzilla-sized short story!
+1 You write, we read. That is all.
Jenn Poniatowski says
The side character interviews have been so much fun. ???? holiday season is upon us. I’m team “ Winter is coming”… not team hallmark movies and etc etc. reading is an escape I treasure. And lately watching a new drama on Netflix called “Eternal Love”… thanks for popping in to say hi! ????
That’d be a great Hallmark crossover…. “Emotionally damaged rebel Hereditary Monster Hunter returns back to the Family Whatever having inherited the great sword thingamabob and finds true love amongst the corpses of the monsters they reluctantly slay as they turn the family business around and diversify into selling Christmas whatnots to bring holiday cheer to the terrorised locals”
Winter is coming…with slay bells on!
???????????? Love it!
so excited for another novel! we’ll buy it!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Mwah! Enjoy the cosy. ????
My hubby wanted me to take a walk with him today. It was 16 degrees. WTF man?
He’s out walking and I’m playing on the computer.
Thank you. I think I mentioned before that my father entered hospice, well he recently passed. your books and your blog have greatly helped me when I need to escape my own feelings for a bit. Seriously, thank you
So very sorry for your loss! Best wishes to you and yours.
Wishing you peace and wonderful memories. Take care of yourself.
((Hugs)) I’m sorry for your loss.
Stay cozy. We love ALL the words and are happy to wait for them.
just so you know, I’ve had the Hidden Legacy audiobooks on repeat (100 hours in a week, says Audible!) and I am so grateful for those characters. I’m now a faithful Frinn reader & now Tapas too.
Thank you for all the great characters & great stories. There’s a reason people coo your names when speaking of favorite writers. Carry on. Please.
May all your stories grow into books and all of your books grow more sequels until every amazing character has their moment in the sun.
Ooh a new story! YAY!
Writing too many words is not a problem on our end.
I just finished an umteenth read of the Innkeeper series this afternoon. I believe it is your best work. And as far as I’m concerned future Sweep possibilities could be endless. Stay warm and safe and have the very best Thanksgiving.
Michelle M says
I will be honest the K. Daniel’s story snippet about Kate going to get some exercise by rescuing her contractor’s nephew from the Very Bad Men peaked my interest and I would love to see how that worked out. I loved the casual at home family vibe that was going on – working on home rehabilitation while intimidating the school official who wanted to get confidential info about Kate’s son and promising death and mayhem on kidnappers – just a regular day in their household. But not to worry she should be back for dinner. I hope eventually that gets and end.
love you too ~
good luck and keep well!
Love you guys and appreciate your genius and perhaps even more your outreach to all of us. How lucky we are to have found your stories, characters and yourselves.
Mod R says it’s not terrible, I’m sure I’ll love it.
::throws money:: please take my money.
I live in pa so it is pretty cold here as well I made fresh banana bread staying warm with my cat on my lap
Ooo, an ‘overgrown short story’ – be still, my beating heart!
Barbara Swanson says
Please do take all the time you need for your life outside of pleasing us…and if you happen to be writing at the same time, well! Life is good.
Angie Papas says
Thank you Gordon and Ilona for your amazing books.
I am thankful that you share so much of your talents and energies with us! Your stories have given me countless hours of joy, comfort, and entertainment. And you share a space with us here that is welcoming, interesting, and positive. Thank you for creating and sharing this little bubble (blog) of joy.
I’m personally of the believe that every story should be exactly as long as it needs to be. If it takes a few thousand words more than expected I certainly won’t complain 😀
Linda Trainor says
thank you. it’s a Sunny ☀️ evening here in New Zealand spring time.
Maia Martinez says
Take your time, awesome doesn’t make in one day.
Patricia Schlorke says
Thank you! We wouldn’t be the BDH without you and Gordon. The two of you, Mod R, and everyone behind the scenes brings all of us unmeasurable joy and happiness. ☺️
It’s cold where I’m at in northern Indiana. Made it safely after the adventure I had just getting here. I even had to drive through snow showers. ????
Amy Keeley says
That sounds wonderful. Good luck with the short story!
Just wanted to say how grateful I am for House Andrews, Mod R, this blog and the BDH. Whenever there is something new to read here, I feel like I’ve come in out of the nasty weather and there’s a cozy fire and a hot drink ready for me. Thanks for allowing us this window into your lives!
Happy Thanksgiving to all you of you!
Mary Beth says
I look at word counts the way Douglas Adams looked at deadlines. “I like the whooshing noise they make as they sail past me.”
Don’t worry, the story will shake out.
Chris C says
To paraphrase the movie “High Road to China”- The writers are slow, but the BDH is patient.
Truthfully, we devour anything and everything that HA writes and we TRY to be patient.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Hope your bread rose to acceptable heights!
Have a restful weekend – we’ll devour whatever you produce – books, short stories, novellas, bread…
Terrie C says
You and Gordon are the best. As I wait for Sweep, I am currently on my umpteenth re-read of KD. When I am out of new books that grab my interest, I go back to my favorites. Even after reading the series multiple times, I am still engaged and amused. You write the BEST stories and I will read whatever you write, whenever it is available.
Alison Parker says
You and your family are important to me so I’m am grateful that you are in my universe. Thank you for the care you put into your characters and books. Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Life.
I am getting ready for my DH’a sister & her husband coming tomorrow. Clothes in the washer, beds being made, list items checked off and then new items added. We have had the dogs at the kennel for the last 10 days while my DH starts his recovery from surgery. I’m picking them up this afternoon so they can add to the chaos. I adore the holidays and I’m always happy when they are done and happy (funny, sad, whatever) memories are left.
Leigh Ann Parente says
The worlds you create give me a place to go when I can’t be here, for whatever reason. I’m grateful for the refuge you provide.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
Thank *you* for all the goodies already here and to (hopefully) come in the future.
I have have just started the eleventy-third reread of the KD series. It really never gets old.
Your worlds have gotten me past cancer surgery and losing more loved ones than I want to think about. (Alas, getting old means other people do, too.)
You are still grabbing me with the first page of anything you publish and pulling me out of where I am to where the story is.
I cannot tell you what a relief that can be.
Just “Thank you.”
Take time for you. I will wait patiently for any works that make it to publication. Don’t you just hate it when friends can say I told you so.
Maureen Gonzales says
I too, would like to take this moment to thank you for providing your readers with such nourishment. The worlds you create give me hope and joy.
Old bulldogs always need a nice fire. I’m sitting here wondering if cackling happened during that laugh from Jeannie or was it later.
Have a great holiday week!
This is a week to be grateful for blessings, and I definitely count House Andrews, Mod R, and the BDH among mine.
The new story sounds intriguing, and you should know by now that we’ll eagerly devour as many words as you want to share. I hope your Thanksgiving is enjoyable and relaxing. I’m currently rereading Hidden Legacy with the insights from the FrInnday interviews in mind, and they are even more intriguing this time around. Thank you for FrInndays and your fan service in general!
Joanie Holmes says
Happy Thanksgiving !
The ability to think and write and have others enjoy it, is a real “Thank You!”
Please relax and enjoy family and friends this Thanksgiving. It is like sharpening your ax – essential for good work.
Somehow I suspect that Mod R’s opinion about the “short story” was considerably more enthusiastic than “not terrible”.
Moderator R says
It was, indeed ????.
I believe the words “awesome”, “hilarious” and “need” were used !
Sharon Leahy says
Lovely, Ilona, thank you. Wishing you warm soup, happy colors, smiles around the table with friends and family, and much relaxation in these days of thanksgiving and appreciating the sweetness of life. Thank you so much for the magic and fun.
There is no such thing as too long!
Mary K Cervenka says
Happy Thanksgiving ????
Would it be possible to include Bianca in the vote for an interview? I know she’s an *extremely* minor characters, but I’m so curious about her!
Maria M. OToole says
No, thank YOU two for writing such wonderful books!
And only 20K words? Bwahahaha…I suspect that some of the weekly Innkeeper episodes were longer…
Have a great Thanksgiving. May you NOT be blessed with the obligatory obnoxious relative.
Moderator R says
Heh, not quite ????. It’s about 1/5th of Sweep of the Heart!
House DeMille says
Oooh… a novella? I really liked Fated Blades – a perfect little story…
Moderator R says
Fated Blades is a short novel, which makes it the perfect novella indeed for the Devouring Horde ????
Back at you House Andrews. You guys are absolute awesome authors.
Leslie Sexton says
Happy Thanksgiving House Andrews and our wonderful mods!
Other Barbara says
Cold damp here so every few hours I look at photos of Buffalo NY to feel better.
I am very happy and willing to pay a premium for the overgrowth.
happy writing & hope you have a happy thanksgiving too.
(finger ready to click the yellow buy button for the long short story)
Lynne Davidson says
Thanks for all your gifts. Happy Thanksgiving ????
Your worlds are so rich and varied that navigating around and through always turns up something new, no matter how many times I revisit them. Your gifts truly keep on giving, valuable all out of proportion to their retail price. Thank you for so many hours of refuge.
Ellen Solensky says
Here is the comment from a 78-year-old Grannie: the true reason you and Gorden have good fans is because you write good books. I am in a transition stage of life, old, sick and spouse is the same. Your stories keep me “young’ interested and actively involved. Thank you.
ColleenColleen Baumann says
Darling Ilona, how cold is a cold in Texas? We are trying to save electricity…. (Here in Switzerland) and i just tolerant my husband that i can’t go under 21.0 degrees Celsius… otherwise i don’t know what i must wear outside…. ????
Anything you write, I will buy. I will happily pay extra for more a “long” short story. 😉
Thank you for your generosity, world building, fully realized characters, & word crafting. May everyone you care about have a safe harvest feast.
Count blessings not words. Already grateful for currently published works so waiting for any new works is just more icing on the blessings cake. Wishing you and yours a happy and safe holiday week. ????
Happy Thanksgiving to you, and to everyone!
I am particularly grateful this year to have recourse to the worlds of ILONA ANDREWS — can’t tell you how many times I have read and re-read every series and every story and every freebie and how much I welcome to IA newsletters and announcements — you both and family and whole team are blessings in this world — thank you.
Have a well deserved HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Great time of year to reread your books!
Thank you for writing such fabulous books (never had a favorite author(s) until I started reading you guys several years ago) and also thank you for having the best author blog… it’s greatly appreciated. And I can’t wait for this “short” story, woohoo!
It’s always a pleasure to read your stories! I am currently on a Kate Daniels reread as I start a new job. The stories you and Gordon write have helped me get through a number of rough patches with more joy and humor than I would have had otherwise. Happy to say I got another friend hooked on Hidden Legacy and excited to see the joy they get experiencing your work for the first time!
Mod R, thank you for your work in keeping the blog chatting between House Andrews’ posts! It’s always a pleasure to do the polls and see what harebrained schemes BDH has gotten into.
We definitely appreciate you and Gordon and your family. Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
Thank you both. As a selective reader, it’s very rare that I find an author (in your case, authors) whose books I will reread no fewer than ten times. The worlds you guys craft are second to none in my unsolicited opinion.
They say reading is a form of escapism, and I’ve definitely found this to be true. House Andrews’ books are my first go-to whenever the world is getting too out of hand.
Selfishly, I hope you continue to write until you’re both like 102 or more. Thank you for sharing both your talent and time with us.
Glad to hear from you and that all is well with HA – enjoy the cozy day!
Looking forward to reading whatever it is, as long as it is, whenever it comes out! ????
Carmen Caspar says
I reread Grace of small magics again and I wish it was longer. It is a great writer who can create great characters and storyline in such a small amount of pages. Thank you
I just started a new job. I decided to take a leap. It’s been exhausting in the good way and in two weeks I already managed to wrack up the best embarrassing work story ever when I was escorting someone around a site and asked them “I’m sorry, what’s your role in the company?” Turns out they were the global chair. Luckily, they were also really chill and understanding of the information oozing out of my brain. We’re gonna be a bit more anonymous than usual on the name for this post… 😀
But at any rate the day before I did a daytrip plane flight. I had the Sandman audio queued up, but the next volume didn’t download on airport wifi adequately, so Dina kept me company on my late flight back while I knit a hat for my kiddo to stay awake. I think I have a gold audible badge for registering to Innkeeper ????
registering = relistening
i wrote enough word salad without autocorrect adding to the flavor.
Thanks, Mod R ????
The BDH makes me all warm and cozy too.
I’m in Toronto and we’ve been watching what’s been happening to the poor Buffalonianss ….and hoping that it wouldn’t cross the lake to us. So far, not. We thank Buffalo for taking the hit for all of us LOL
Everyone stay cozy and stay safe. And to youz ‘muricans, Happy Thanksgiving.
Giving Thanks Happily
Glad you’re doing well, I finally broke down, gave in and read Ruby Fever ???? now I only have two books left in my IA unread stash
Cause 2 is NOT enough for a hoard BUT . . .
December is almost here !!
Gifting Time . . . ???? now do I gift myself and read OR do I hoard chuckling obsessively into the new year … ???????? ???? ???? ????????
Ilona, we can call it a “short” story no matter how long it is! Short is in the eye of the beholder. Even if it’s as long as an old school encyclopedia, we can still call it a “short” story. The stories you two write are so rich in characters and worlds that they need as many words as it takes to get the story told. ????
We would like ALL. THE. WORDS. All of them. We need them, the preciouses.
Thanks for both your and Gordon’s wonderful work and creativity to bring us these incredible worlds to explore. Thank you to all the wonderful people behind the scenes (Mod R, the editors, narrators and family members) who help to make this all happen. May good fortune and peace follow you and your family in this crazy world.
Hope you had a nice quiet Dinner and that you can get the overgrown shortstory into the shape you want it.
Heartfelt thanks to you House Andrews, for all the wonderful worlds and characters you gave us. It is always great to have the opportunity to enjoy your books if life throws something nasty my way. And it is a favourite pastime to hang out here with the BDH and our lovely ModR.
If you build it, BDH will come.
Kay Kaz says
Don’t worry about us. We’ll be here whenever you can come up for air and the Thanksgiving feast!
Have a wonderful holiday, enjoy your family and catch us up when you get a chance.
Mod R, please join us in celebrating the US Thanksgiving. I hate eating alone, lol!
Thanks for all the great tidbits you give us on your blog and thanks so much for all the great books you write! I was totally in love with Ruby Fever by page 4! I can just keep rereading that first chapter! So fun!
I have read all you write (I think!). So thanks again. Just ordered the latest innkeeper book on kindle!
Thanks to Mod R too for keeping us entertained and corralled!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
This member of the BDH is ridiculously grateful for any prose you are willing to impart. Please do all the things that feed your souls.
Take care, love you both ????❤️
Liz Kulpa says
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, cool weather is perfect for the food. On an Australian note for Thanksgiving, our locally based children’s cartoon ‘Bluey’ is in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. So exciting. Bluey’s Grandad Bob’s voice lives in our city of Townsville, Queensland. Met him last year, lovely person.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone over there on Thursday.
Thank you as well. I’m grateful for your wonderful writing and the opportunity to simply enjoy what I lobe the most with the most congenial BDH.
Aaaaw… Thanks Ilona! ????
We love you too.
Some of my finest memories start with being cozy and content at home on a stormy day.
I love storms. I also love not being wet and cold. It’s a balancing act 🙂
Enjoy the process, and I’ll look forward reading the results.
And Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Jessie West says
Thank YOU for providing these wonderful words and worlds to experience!
