Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

I'm back (I hope!)

One of my readers sent me an email this weekend inquiring about my welfare. Such a sweetheart!

I am well, thank you (Linda!), and hopefully I am back in the proverbial saddle again.

I had vein surgery in my leg two weeks ago, and while the vein surgery wasn't so tough to recover from, just a few days afterward,  I was hit by the fever and cold my kids had passed around and that hit me like a ton of bricks. I went for a flu shot a few days after the surgery and the night after the shot, I woke shivering with a fever. Of course my greatest fear was that I had sepsis or some hospital-acquired bacterial illness, but I think I just over-taxed my immune system. I should have the known the cold and fever my kids shared would eventually make it to me!

Anyway, the past few weeks I spent with my head barely above water. I didn't do much cooking, and that which I did cook was hardly blog-worthy. I also couldn't sit at the computer for long (unfortunately I don't have a laptop or pad --just a big old screen at a desk).

So, just here to say I am back, and I hope to get share a few yummy ideas over the next few days. Thanks for hanging in there -- if you're still there!

Oh I'm glad to hear that all is well and you're on the mend. I've been a bit absent, too. Quite busy over here in SW PA. looking forward to hearing from you more!
