Man Down, And More Coming Soon...

Forgive me, readers, it's been almost a week since my last blog post.

Husband had a nasty work accident on Friday, whereby he got harsh chemicals splashed in his face, specifically his eye. (As someone who is extremely squeamish about eye-related things, I won't go into specifics, in case you are squeamish too.) Anyways, due to his injuries, we've been hanging out at home, reading, sitting on our deck till all hours with friends and burgers and beers, and I've totally fallen off the cooking wagon.

In this unplanned time off from the blog, I've thought long and hard about what direction I want to take it. And I've come to the conclusion that I'd like to incorporate a little more food and a little less 'me' in my posts. I'm fascinating and all, but it's occured to me that I'm awfully long-winded about things and maybe I should work on my brevity, my getting to the point quicker. I think this will help me post more frequently too.

So I've got some recipes bookmarked for this week, and now I'm off to have a beer and catch up on some Coronation street; a simple recipe for contentment.


  1. I hope your hubby feels better soon! And don't get too brief with your posts -- I like reading about your memories of France and obsessions with the 70s! :)

  2. Thanks Leslie! He is indeed doing better, almost all healed now.

    And as much as I'd like to be more brief with the posts, well, let's just say I have my doubts that'll happen.

  3. I agree with Lesley, the stories you tell make your blog better...never doubt that!

  4. I also agree. It's the bits of you combined like the folding in of ingredients that make the blog so endearing and such a great read!

  5. Melissa, thank you for the vote of confidence, as always!

    Candice, I like your analogy, and moreso the very sweet sentiments. I'm so glad you enjoy my writing!
