Last night I had this lovely post all typed out in my head (non food related I remember) plus pictures. I also had a lovely recipe to post.
The joke is on me, because for the life of me I cannot remember any of what I had in my thoughts.
1. What was it I wanted to cook? ......
2. What exactly was it that I had wanted to blog about? ......
3. What were those pictures I wanted to post? That would help me out, since they would be related to what I had wanted to
Staring blankly at my keyboard......................
This is not the first time I have done this.
Weather is something to think about, especially if you have changed where you live dramatically. These days the weather is divine here! It's in the low to mid fifties at night, which is just utterly heaven for me... however much I love it, it's the pits for my family (in-laws). Being true Bedouins (just two generations or so ago leaving that life to come to a more city like life) they don't appreciate the cold as much as I do. The days are in the upper sixties to lower and occasionally mid seventies, another plus for me!!! My neighbors (in-laws) however are walking around complaining about how cold it is, already wearing layers upon layers of clothing and scared to death to take a bath in fear of becoming deathly ill. Poor people! I can relate since everything is in the exact reverse now. During the summer months when it was hot I would have walked around stark naked if it would have been acceptable. When I say hot, I do mean HOT! It was around 117 daily for weeks, yes that's right folks, 117 and sometimes got even hotter. I was miserable! I grew up on the coast of Northern California, Redwood Country, which means layers upon layers of fog, and cold, comparably so all year around. I love that weather, and indeed there are not words for how much I miss it (the weather/scenery and family that is)!
The pictures posted are from my home town, both the ocean and the Redwood Forest are our neighbors, a truly gorgeous place!
