My 12 yr. old daughter, Camryn, also known as my PR person, advised me to let everybody know that I'm, indeed, not dead.
She noticed the date of my last post and gasped! "Mom, when will you work on your next post?"
Turns out that date coincided with the arrival and aftermath of Hurricane Irene, which sadly wreaked havoc in my area of Northern New Jersey. Even President Obama paid us a visit. We weathered things just fine and are thankful that our discomforts were few. I'm sorry I can't say the same for many of my neighbors.
The school year began without a glitch and we realized during the previous school year, classes began exactly the day after we moved into our new home! (Same neighborhood) So we celebrated our first year anniversary in grand style with milk and cookies=)
Just as I began working on my Fall and holiday cookies, allergies kicked in and flat on my back I went. I haven't visited my favorite bloggers to read their posts and 'Oh and Ah' over their creations and recipes in weeks. Sorry=( I will catch up when my face doesn't hurt so much.
So there. I hope Camryn is happy now. I heeded her advice and won't lose any sleep=D
I hope everyone is well, can't wait to show you what I've been working on!
