"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

White Thanksgiving!

our forest after snow

We woke to falling snow, and it continued to pile up--several inches of it. Makes for a beautiful and festive holiday!

Our non-traditional feast consisted of Atlantic salmon fillets (Delia Smith recipe), Shrimp and Mushroom on Skewers (my recipe), wild rice (out of a Near East box), Sweet Potato Balls (Paula Deen recipe)...

Pumpkin and Apple Butter Pie

Pumpkin and Apple Butter Pie, also Paula Deen's recipe, with modifications. We're so stuffed we haven't eaten it yet.

Here's our wish for all of you:

Happy Thanksgiving!
