sam&hannahchaiseI’ve been delayed in posting on the Hannah Grace blog, as I’ve recently been asked to become a regular contributor/blogger with The Huffington Post! While the Hannah Grace blog will still continue (in fact, a new Hannah & Sam book is in the works), I’d like to invite you to follow me in The Huffington Post. Click here to view my latest essays and click on the “fan” link to receive notifications of upcoming posts. There’s a sure possibility that you’ll see something about Hannah and Sam in the near future.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch – or, rather, the “spartment” – the big news is the heat: for those of you who recall the garret (who could forget?), heat was not a given. However, in the new apartment, the heat is on and H&SdeepconversationHannah, Sam, and I are loving it. Who would’ve thought that adequate heat was not only a basic need but a simple pleasure? And yet it is.

Last year, when family and friends asked what I wanted for the holidays, all I wanted were warm things: slippers, a robe, flannel pajamas. Now, heat is a given. And not only that. The back of my bedroom closet shares a wall with the bathroom, where two heating pipes are located. This means that my clothes are warm in the morning. You can bet Hannah and Sam stay cozy.

Hannah is in love with the local TV weatherman.

One other big piece of news: we have a new TV.  The 1998 Panasonic died a couple weeks ago, so I finally joined the present day and purchased a flat screen television. Hannah and Sam have been infatuated with it. Hannah can sit in front of it for hours. In fact, I think she may be in love with our local weatherman.

As we approach Thanksgiving and the holidays, may you all be surrounded by the warmth of family, friends, and your pets.
