Yes, it's true. I've been ignoring the blog. My ennui has caught up with me. I'm sure it's the weather: gray days and freezing temperatures with no change of scenery can definitely dull the imagination. The image outside my window resembles a black and white photograph for most color is lacking, as is my desire to enter the kitchen. But all hope is not lost. The bird are chirping occasionally and there is a promise of a visit from family in the near future. I realize I sound as if I lived miles from civilization which is not the case, at least not physically, but most definitely psychologically.
This week I have been improvising in the kitchen: buying a roast chicken from the market, mashing potatoes, opening a can of green beans; a simple soup and grilled cheese sandwich; grabbing a container of frozen black beans from the freezer adding it to white rice; or just ordering a pizza. Not much to blog about is it?
So, I leave you with the promise that I will be back soon, and hopefully with a picture of something delicious!
