Happy Going into the Holidays!

I hope all is well with everyone and that those who celebrated US Thanksgiving had a safe and wonderful day.

Per Jewel HQ tradition, now that it’s after Thanksgiving, we can appropriately procrastinate preparations for the holidays. The weather here has been about as wintery as the North Bay gets. This year there is a bumper crop of mushrooms. A few of them are enormous and can be seen from quite far away. I enjoy going out to look at the mushrooms.

Now that we have fish in the pond, we’ve had visits from both herons and egrets . . . beautiful, majestic birds who don’t normally come anywhere near the house. Goldfish are good at hiding, but we’re fairly certain the netting has done it’s job and we still have all six.

Bound In Smoke continues to go well. I have some time off and hope to get a lot of words down.

Stay safe, everyone. What are you reading these days? I’m re-reading R. Lee Smith’s Land of the Beautiful Dead.

Below is a picture of a mushroom.

    I just finished All the Feels by Olivia Dade and have moved on to Demon Equilibrium by Cathy Pegau. Both very good in different ways.

    We don’t have our family Thanksgiving until Saturday, so I am not at all in Christmas mode. Next week I will panic, but I will also be up to my whatsit in end of term projects and grading. I can see how this is going to go.

    Enjoy your time off!!

    Nice shroom. I’m reading my way through the books my sister decided not to take with her to her new residence. I’m deciding which ones to keep because I have limited shelf space and which to donate. Right now I’m perusing books by Jill Myles, an author I haven’t read before. They’re pretty good. I may keep them. Looking forward to Bound in Smoke so am glad you are feeling creative. Take care.
