10/5/20, A little of This and a little of That!



Hi Everyone,


I hope you had a good week, even a great one with some lucky breaks.


It’s gotten chilly in Paris, and the Covid numbers have gone up in Paris, and all over Europe. I personally think it’s still the fallout of the people who were cavalier about safety measures this summer, and hung out on beaches, too close together, in bars WAY too close together and without masks. And it got us headed in the wrong direction again.  We can’t afford to be careless, and ignore the safety measures. I like eating outdoors, and haven’t eaten indoors yet at a restaurant. But as the weather gets colder, it’s too chilly to sit outside, or it will be soon.


They announced new health measures today: they are closing the bars for 2 weeks so people can’t congregate, and restaurants are under scrutiny to decide if they are safe enough and need to close too. It’s definitely a hard time for small businesses. And the tourist industry has suffered the most.


My answer to the problem is simple, when the numbers are high, I stay home and write. I get a lot of work done that way, and it keeps me out of dicey situations, like being around people who don’t wear masks.


I haven’t done anything interesting lately, I’ve been working on a book, several in fact, as I usually do.  Halloween is coming up, and it brings back such happy memories of my kids.


I was supposed to go to the Chanel fashion show tomorrow, with 200 spectators, and I LOVE those shows, but I just didn’t dare take a chance. It just didn’t seem Worth the risk.



So it’s been a quiet week, more writing in store. Have a GREAT week!!!


much love, Danielle

    I have been a long time fan of your books – 30 years! I have only recently found your blog and enjoy reading about how things are going for you. Though we are all so far apart, we are experiencing exactly the same things in this world wide pandemic.

    In Canada, we too are preparing for colder days and what to do when our outdoor patios cannot be enjoyed. And, we too, are experiencing an uptick in cases. Recently our outdoor patios have been given the go-ahead to remain open until Christmas! So, the hottest items on the market now are patio heaters. How cozy it will be to be on a heated out door patio, wrapped in a blanket, enjoying a cocktail with snow softly falling. 🙂

    Best to you…
