This and That (aka Gotta Getta Blog Post Done for NaBlo)

Have tons of ideas for blog posts in my head, but sometimes it's hard to find the time. Like today. Came home from a fabulous weekend in Ottawa where I got to talk books and writing, shop at Chapters, take the kids to see Puss In Boots with my mother-in-law, and spend today making dragon nests out of leaves. I mean, who wouldn't want to do that on a Sunday morning?

Drove home on a mild November afternoon to find Andrew had tossed a chicken in a roasting pan and walked through the door to me met by the wafting aroma. All I had to do was potatoes, cauliflower and cheese, and an apple pie, and voila, Dinner! The down side of using extra old cheddar for the cheese sauce is that the plates seemed a touch monochromatic. Most days that wouldn't bother me, but Sunday dinner...oh well, can't have it all.

I know what you mean about monochromatic dinners, but it still sounds tasty to me.

I'd kind of forgotten Puss & Boots was out. Should take the kids to see that.

That was an incredibly inspiring discussion Denise. Thank you so much, and I really hope we can do the retreat and talk more. I still have so many questions.

You are so sweet and lovely!
