This lovely, lovely weather is so heartening for me. I just love it. (I’m working on learning to love snow, too, as the TV people say this is a la Nina year.) Today, though, I’m in the moment–recent losses have reminded me how precious NOW really is.
I’ll be making a trip up to Toronto soon, to meet with my fabulous publishers, the Harlequin people. Lots of exciting stuff going on, career wise, and I always enjoy the visits.
The D.I.E.T. is becoming a L.I.F.E.S.T.Y.L.E instead. Honestly, it’s so easy, and the food is very good. I get variety without having to page through cookbooks, buy ingredients, and throw something together. (I will be making my Beef Bourg. for Christmas dinner, though.) I have a ways to go yet, in terms of pounds, but I’m confident enough to wear jeans again, and that’s a nice feeling. I’m a foodie at heart–never miss “The Splendid Table” via podcast and I’m listening to a book called “The Kitchen Counter Cooking School”, and enjoying the process vicariously. (Much lower calorie intake that way.) Besides writing and my pets, my passion these days is art, of the mixed media type.
Today is a writing day–I’ll be spending most of it in Parable, Montana, with Hutch and Kendra, the new story people.
And that’s the news from my kitchen table for today.
