Hellloooo! And a huge thank you for reading, and sticking with me. First, I’m sorry I have been MIA for many months, but summer (and now fall) has flown by. I looked back on how little I’ve blogged these past few months, and I’m disappointed. But this post will tell you a little about what I’ve been up to and why I’ve been missing. And, I really hope to post at least a few times a month in the near future. And I think that might be possible, so please stay tuned and continue reading.
When I looked back at my posts and realized the last time I blogged with regularity, it was week two of my CSA. And my 18-week CSA ended this Wednesday. Sad, because I haven’t blogged for four months, and because my produce is gone. But there was a lot of produce, in beautiful fall colors, this week.
I also went to “The Book of Mormon” and the club made famous by Prince, First Avenue, to see La Roux.
As if all this wasn’t enough, I have had friends in town, and I’ve gone to visit my family in Iowa and road tripped to Milwaukee for my cousin’s wedding, with a stop in Madison for a vegetarian lunch at the Green Owl.
Although I haven’t been sitting still, the real reason I haven’t blogged is because I haven’t been cooking as much as I like, and I just haven’t had any more hours in the week to blog. That is because a month ago I closed on my first house. So, now I’m a homeowner! I spent Friday cooking my last CSA veggies in my new kitchen, and it was wonderful. And after I finish this blog post, I’m going to make some energy bites. And I’ve been busy raking, painting, moving, getting situated and taking a lot of trips to home stores. And it’s been crazy and exciting. So, as I have time to cook, I hope to get back to blogging more. And as the house comes together, I hope to share some pictures and stories of it with you. Thanks for sticking around and reading this post, even though it’s been long overdue. And cheers to the blog and a healthy life!
