Quiet around here today. May just put the kettle on for now. Not sure if any of the coffee crowd are around. Scarfing a couple cookies to have with a tea.

It's a good news/bad news kind of day.

Good: I found an an online shop that sells just about everything you could ever want with somebody's picture on it (ie: pillows, clothes, coffee mugs, etc). And one of the people you can choose from is Jane. I...

Bad: We just finished a WL hiatus and now we're headed for another one after a few more weeks of episodes. And this time it's going to last for a month. And I...I really, really don't want to be away from Jane for that long.

Somebody: You attract what you fear.
Me: I'm terrified of Jane Lynch.

I remember having a bad thing for Brooke Shields back in her heyday as a teen star. We're supposedly the same age, though some sources have her a year younger, and our birthdays are even quite close together. Back in high school, I fantasized an entire story involving her and me, including fantasizing her taking the lead in the movie version. But that was long, long ago. *sighs* Enjoy your mad crush while it lasts, Xander.

Oh, I intend to, believe me. Funny thing is that a lot of Jane's sarcastic comments (on WL or otherwise) are similar to things I might say to somebody.

Very busy today putting together the futon that a friend gave to us yesterday. Very complicated.

It is now dinner time. I reheated a rotisserie chicken that I had frozen two weeks ago.

Looking forward to the contest winners being announced soon.

And they are announced! All of them. Wow, what comp. Thoroughly enjoyed the range of stories (and a few poems) that got entered. Terrific way to celebrate this site.

Now, let's party, both for 10 years of Storiesspace and for the many who contributed their talents to this comp. Ape brought the cake.

I'll get the coffee made. I see that Scott was here this morning with the celebratory cake. I'm sure he has a nice pot of tea.

Let's everyone cheer for the contest winners and give a salute to all who were kind enough to enter.

Good morning to all. It's a lovely day. The coffee is perking and the water is heating.

Time to get down to some serious writing once more.

Tomorrow is WL day and I'm honestly trying not to explode over the thought of Jane not wearing all black for the first time all season. She can wear anything and look edible.

Good morning, dear friends. The day is gloomy out there. I really am glad I got the shopping done yesterday so I don't have to go out today.

The coffee is perking. The water is on the boil for tea.

I'll make sure there are no new stories that I have missed. See all y'all later.

Winter is back for a couple days here but won't last. It is warming up (relatively) as the week goes on.

Take care and get yourself well, Sara. Hope it's just a cold (that season is upon us, at least here).

Morning to all who enter, especially those who don't make too much of a mess. Coffee's on and the tea kettle is hot to trot. Sarah has left a generous supply of cookies. The rest is up to y'all.

Good morning early riser, Bill. Nice to have coffee so quickly today. But it is so dreary out there.

So, is anyone ready for another contest?

Cheers.

Maybe? I'm a bit uninspired at the moment but maybe a new comp would give me some ideas. No rush, though. I'm working steadily until Christmas holidays so won't be doing much writing until then anyhow.

Kettle is on for tea, hot chocolate, or whatever hot beverage meets your needs.

...oh my god. There was a guy on last night's WL that answered a question about Venus with Uranus and when he got booted off, Jane was like, "I have so many jokes about that but I can't say any of them on prime time TV."

Oh Jane, only you. love10

I have so many ideas for holiday fics that I don't know what to do with them...and no motivation to work on them, either. Ugh.

Morning to all on the eve of a most unique Thanksgiving Day here in the weary old U.S. of A.. Coffee's hot as is the water in the tea kettle. Sarah's cookies also await those who check out her 'kooky' jars. ;)

Y'all take care of your fool selves.

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!

It's going to be a quiet holiday here with just my husband and youngest son. I can't have family over, no one knows if or how long immunity from Covid may last. I also can't afford to get even a cold at this point. Covid comes with a whole range of awful things. I am trying to be grateful but worry I will never feel normal again. My lung capacity is abysmal so I can't do a whole lot. But my family is healthy even if I can not see some of them.

I did manage to make a pie with my son's help. He and my husband came up with a Frankenstein Thanksgiving pie. It's cheesecake on the bottom, then a pumpkin pie layer, an apple pie layer, and topped off with a streusel topping. We made it last year and it's delicious.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving.

Stay safe and healthy and enjoy the day.

Cheers!

Some of my stuff.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends!

Gill, you take care of your lovely self and hope you start to feel a little better in the coming days. (hugs)

It's just an ordinary Thursday in these here parts, with the next lockdown starting tomorrow. I've stocked up on Christmassy fabric to make jolly masks as Christmas gifts which I'm slowly putting together. Very much a home-made affair this year.

I'll grab a coffee and a handful of Sara's delicious cookies to get me started today!

This is the time of the year when friends and families around the world give thanks for the good things that we have and that we share. Especially friendship and love.





The coffee is always ready to perk here in the coffee house. The water is always ready to boil for your tea or cocoa. There are always plenty of treats in the cookie jars.

Treats for the friends and family and treats for the little creatures.

Please always feel welcome. Please always join us here.

Give thanks and join in the hugs shared around the cyber table. We do not need to touch to be able to feel. Feel the love and joy.

The day is lovely.

Peace.
