Just a quick note to say that we’re all back home from our wildfire evacuation. We were only evacuated for one night and we’re extremely happy that the fire missed us. We’re also very grateful to the brave firefighters who were able to keep it away from most of the homes in our area. We’ve had a few days now with low winds, and the progress they made on the fire so far is amazing.
Our dogs enjoyed “camping” with us during the evacuation but were a bit stressed to be out of their home. Lots of hugs, pets, and walks helped to ease their stress, but they sure were happy to get home again. As were we.
Thank you to everyone for your support and comments.

It wouldn’t be the theater without a few theatrics…
Becoming a famous playwright is all Winnie ever dreamed about. For now, though, she'll have to settle for assisting the celebrated, sharp-witted feminist playwright Juliette Brassard. When an experimental theater company in London, England, decides to stage Juliette's most renowned play, The Lights of Trafalgar, Winnie and Juliette pack their bags and hop across the pond.
But the trip goes sideways faster than you can say "tea and crumpets." Juliette stubbornly butts heads with the play's director and Winnie is left stage-managing their relationship. Meanwhile, Winnie's own work seems to have stalled, and though Juliette keeps promising to read it, she always has some vague reason why she can't. Then, Juliette's nephew, Liam, enters stage left. He's handsome, he's smart, he is devastatingly British…and his family ties to Juliette pose a serious problem, forcing Winnie to keep their burgeoning relationship on the down-low. What could go wrong?
Balancing a production seemingly headed for disaster, a secret romance and the sweetest, most rambunctious rescue dog, will Winnie save the play, make her own dreams come true and find love along the way—or will the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune get the best of her?
Here for the Drama by Kate Bromley is a lighthearted book about a struggling playwright who is an assistant to a very famous playwright. It has a bit of a Devil Wears Prada vibe, but the screenwriter isn’t quite as bad as Miranda Priestly.
Winnie has always wanted to be a playwright, but now she has to settle for being the assistant of a famous playwright, Julliette. When Juliette has to go to London for the opening of her play, she insists that Winnie go with her to help. In London, Winnie stays busy helping with the play and meets Julliette’s nephew, Liam. Winnie and Liam have an immediate attraction, but Julliette doesn’t want Winnie dating her nephew. But, Liam and Winnie have an attraction, so they date anyway. But, what will happen when Winnie has to go back to New York?
I really enjoyed this book and the standout feature of Here for the Drama is the banter between Liam and Winnie, they are so adorable together. Kate Bromely really knows how to write witty dialogue. The story is good, a little bit predictable, but the book is mainly about Winnie and her relationships with Liam, and her boss, Juliette.
The romance between Winnie and Liam was adorable, they spend some time together before they moved toward a more romantic relationship. They just seem so happy together and I love the way they interact and also have such respect for each other
The relationship between Winnie and her boss, Juliette is a bit more complicated. They appear to be friends, and they get along really well. In fact, they have some great dialogue, and it appears that they really understand and support each other. But, is that really the case?
I highly recommend Here For the Drama to anyone who enjoys romantic comedy.
