First of all I want to thank those special people who have felt my blog was of value by nominating me for The Sunshine Award in the past few weeks. Indu and Ngan – you have shown me so much kindness since I joined Angie’s weekly party with your friendliness, comments and interest in the posts I make. This is what makes me happy and the fact that I have learned so much about you as well.
I do not want to seem like a “snob” but even getting the kinks out to party at Angie’s has been work enough. Ask Angie, I think on the fifth Fiesta I finally could link and add my posts without her help. Hats off to Angie as she had so much patience with me, especially since I have participated for the entire 8 weeks so far! I have been learning about computers on my own and it has been fun but sometimes very frustrating. Accepting these thoughtful awards is not for me right now. Maybe some day …
As you know I am an Auntie but I am also a “granny” who has been widowed for over 5 years now. Having a cooking blog has been helping with my healing process as Gene was a big part of my life and the cooking/eating/traveling and life in general we shared together. I miss him very much… He was also my computer expert and would be extremely proud of how far I have come – we could have had so much more fun!
Anyways, it has been great getting to know so many people, all of the different things we cook, where we come from, our many talents. I wish I could write like so many of you – now photography I think I can learn a lot more, especially from bloggers like Patty who is willing to share her knowledge about getting better photos.
I also need to take some time off from posting recipes as the extra weight is catching up with me. I think I deserve a break after blogging for over 2 years and posting 662 recipes. I still want to see what people are up to so I will continue to comment and maybe occasionally I will post a Weight Watcher’s recipe. So, I have not gone away, I am just taking care of some things in my life.
Happy Spring, Cooking and Gardening 🙂
