Celebrating with Seafood and a Whoopie Pie

It’s not every day that you get the first shipment of your new book. Therefore, when the box with copies of Library Lost came in, Clif and I decided to celebrate and go to the Red Barn for some of their delectable seafood and, of course, a whoopie pie. So good and so reasonably priced.

And speaking of Library Lost…my blogging friend Eliza asked how a copy might be ordered. Glad you asked, Eliza! For others who are wondering, all you have to do is click here, and it will take you to our Hinterlands Press website, where you can order a signed copy directly from us. The book can also be ordered through Amazon.

On another subject…the holidays are coming—tomorrow is December 1—and yesterday I went into the woods to gather pine and dried fern stalks for outside arrangements on our little deck.

I went midafternoon when this time of year the sun is setting and the woods are filled with shadows. There were lots of fern stalks by the little stream that runs behind our house and eventually makes its way to the Upper Narrows Pond.

There were some winterberries left, a bright punctuation against the white of winter. Fortunately, I had gathered winterberries a couple of weeks ago, when they were more plentiful.

And I came across this tree, covered with fungi.

Always something to notice in the woods, even in the winter.

  1. Beautiful Winter photographs Laurie and what a fine meal for a celebration! I’ve ordered the book and look forward to reading it over the holidays πŸ€—πŸ’– xxx

  2. I have never had whoopie pie and it looks good (but doesn’t look very pie-ish.) I wish I could have celebrated with you both at the Red Barn on a beautiful Maine wintry day but instead I celebrated this special occasion by ordering a signed copy of your book! Actually both books for my granddaughter who loves to read. Thanks for the link to make it easy! Congratulations and HOORAY for you!❀
