Wow. Would you look at the time!
Where did February go..? Perhaps now is a good time to mention that February was not a particularly kind month over here.
Winter was mild one day and horrifically frigid the next. Somewhere along the line I fell into a creative black hole and had no interest in picking up either camera or paintbrush. It was kinda weird and I just went with it. Winter has a way of bringing out the worst in me, I won't deny it.
At the beginning of the month, my husband and I decided to go vegetarian, although we're continuing to eat the eggs our own hens produce. We originally wanted to go vegan, but it's way harder than you'd imagine.
So, I've had my nose buried in recipe books and my somewhat enormous magazine collection. I've discovered some really yummy meals, but it's fair to say that I'm currently a little consumed with menu planning and meal preparation.
Then, about half way through the month, I got walloped by a nasty flu bug- or a whole brigade of flu bugs. It's been nearly 2 weeks and I'm just now beginning to feel like crawling out from underneath my rock.
In the midst of feeling like total crap, I had a couple of health scares with my hens, as well. I won't go into detail, but all appears well again. Whew!
So, I wanted to pop in here and say "Hey! I'm not dead!"
And, thank you for the show of concern from several of you! It's much appreciated.
