Hello there.

Friday, December 7, 2018

It's almost been a whole year since I lost my dad. As September 4th approaches, I got all the feels. I lost it at the farmers market on Saturday holding a plum because they were his favorite. The day before his health declined to the point of hospice, I m
Hi.
Hello.
Is this on?

It's been a LONG time. Long time. Over a year. So, hello.

Oh, what's happened since I last blogged? Lots and also not much. My beloved father's health declined due to Parkinson's and arthritis, then he had a stroke, and in September 2017, he left all that pain and discomfort and went to a place where he could garden, eat cake, and watch baseball.

I've been pretty active on Instagram showing lunch with mom, Cidney the Girl Dog, and stuff I've been eating.

I want to get back to blogging because I need to keep track of recipes, and remember what I made and shared.

So, hello. Hi there. It's good to be back.

Oh, yeah. It's my birthday today. I'm a big believer in self-gifting birthday stuff so I bought a new cake turntable and want to improve my frosting technique. And I received lots of delicious cookbooks I can't wait to try. That's why I started this little blog years and year ago. To document learning to bake. So here I am again.

Hope you are doing well.

See you on the next post... The Boy Who Bakes Brownie Cookies!

Best,
Mary the Food Librarian
