I'm baaaaaaaaack, get excited.

My mother continues to remind me I haven't posted in a LONG time. This post is for you mother.

I know, I know it's been too long.  First, I was feeling in a rut about the blog. Uninspired. Not-funny. Blah. Then, we got a DOG! So fun! And I wanted to start blogging about her from time to time and our adventures with DIY and the pouch. Here's the thing, my normal blogging time was when I was walking little Frida. After all of my hemming and hawing I'm back!  I have been thinking about the blog and shaking things up a bit. I'll still be blogging about food but likely I'll be sprinkling in more posts about crafts and life. I think it will keep the variety interesting and importantly keeping my mother up to date on our lives. Now if you're still reading I'm going to share a few previews of what we've been up to and what I might be blogging about soon.

Joel continues to insist on dragging me up mountains for "the view." I typically spend the way up threatening to throw him off the mountain and climbing over large rocks worried for my personal safety. Here we are in the Adirondack High Peaks area last week. I guess I should say, Joel is right; it is worth the view.

I've been crafting my pants off. This lamp was a second-hand find that I spruced up and gave to my mother for Mother's Day. Wait until you see the before and after.

Of course, I've still been cooking. Above is a zucchini turkey sausage soup that is amazing. Our
CSA started last week so lots more to come.

Finally, there's little Frida. She's getting ready to cheer on Joel at his marathon a few weeks ago.

So there you have it. The sneak peak and promise for more posts. One more thing, I'm working on overhauling the look of the blog in the not so distant future to add a little more personality.  You are welcome, mother.
