Check, Check…


Is this thing on?

Tap, tap.

Oh, good.

Peers through bright proscenium lights.

Why hello there! Welcome back. You thought I'd left forever, I'm sure. Sometimes I questioned it myself. But there are too many good ideas rolling around in this gal's head for me to stay away for that long. So here I am.

Oh, you'd like to know where I've been? What's happened since that lonely little post earlier this month? A lot actually. Some fun things, some foodie things, some big scary what the crap am I doing decision type things. And I promise to share. November is a new month, and I'm absolutely planning to be back.

Why November? Why not now, you ask? Well, not now because today is a very special day.

Halloween? Oh, why I suppose it is Halloween. But no, that's not it. You see, around here on the 31st of October, we celebrate Chris' birthday. So, while many of you are drinking punch and eating candy while dressed as vampires or ghouls or slutty versions of basically any and everything, we will be spending a quiet evening at home and enjoying Chris' traditional birthday dinner.

In the Thick of It


I’m a little lost these days. This is a difficult thing for me to admit, especially here where it would be all too easy to omit the details about how I’m faltering lately, to chalk up my absence entirely to cheery days spent canning. I’d be lying if I turned around and told you that there wasn’t immense happiness and satisfaction in the days I spent filling all those jars, but I’d also be lying if I didn’t now explain that canning has been a means of escape for me during the past month as well, a way to focus my teeming mind on something small and pleasant.



I didn’t mean it lightly when I said that it had been a vacation.
