Family Time

I have spent the last week with my extended family in a small town. For some people this would be stressful and annoying. It was certainly stressful at times, but not because of family, and I enjoyed it all.

My maternal grandma passed away on September 23. We held her memorial service this last Sunday and the whole week I have felt really inspired to write.

I fly back to GA tonight (and tomorrow morning) and am hoping I'll get a brief opportunity to get my feelings and observations down on "paper".

Only A Little Unbalanced

Days like today are what make people think that I'm bipolar. I slept in until about 2:30pm, watched dvr'd tv for about 5 hours, went back to bed for another 3 hours, then got up, went to the grocery store (at midnight) and have been cooking since I got back.

I made a pot of Ecuadorian Potato Cheese Soup (recipe will be posted on the food blog shortly), a large pan of Apple Crisp (to be baked tomorrow) and there is a new variety of hot sauce simmering on the stove now. I decided to join in the fray and see if I can come up with a recipe that I like that can be marketed to the "mild" crowd.

Soon I will go back to bed. Tomorrow will be a more "normal" day... I'm supposed to have lunch with a friend, run errands, and make dinner.

But for today, I have enjoyed being completely lazy and then manic!
