Best thing today was at the Carolina Renaissance Festival - the face of the little girl meeting her first real Celtic fairy was absolutely priceless. Just wanted to share!

Daylight Savings Time is over, so I no longer go to work in the dark!

We hired back an employee that we laid off a year ago. So maybe things are starting to look up - ?

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Best thing today is all the guests went home. It was lovely to see them all for 'Thanksgiving Early' as my daughter calls it, but 14 people shoehorned into every room in the house was a zoo! We even put up one kid in the closet -- called it the 'Harry Potter room' in the hopes he would not object, and he was so enchanted with the idea that he actually wanted us to clear out the storage under the stairs so he could sleep THERE!

I've done it! I've finished the first draft of my new (last year) novel. I feel like I could float.

Way to go, LoveHistory! Celebrate!

The best thing for me: my daughter is coming home from college for Thanksgiving holidays. Yeah!

Congrats on finishing your work, LH, good luck with it!

Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving, in case I don't get a chance to get on to the forum tomorrow.
