What. A. Week.
I’m not going to lie – it’s been a really rough one. And I apologize for my absence around here. On top of writing one book while editing/finishing up another, I’ve had a bunch of work come in for my “real” job (oh yeah, I have one of those too!) Then Damian was sent off to Baltimore for a very last minute conference, leaving me single mom stylee . . . with a *very* tooth-troubled toddler. If you follow me on Twitter you might have seen this gem earlier today:
Whenever I reach my breaking point and cry, it makes Waits crack up. It’s sort of infuriating to be honest, but I guess it’s a good thing.
That’s right. I lost it. *sigh* See guys? I definitely do not have it all together, all the time.
Parenthood is such a trip. Ha! Waits may push me to my very edge, but boy does he lift me up to my greatest height, too. As I tweeted:
Dang my kid is friggin’ adorable. Which is really good . . . for his sake!
And it’s true. See?
How could I possibly, ever, stay anything even resembling upset with that sweetest little guy?
I also want to give a HUGE thanks to Kristen, who was kind enough to drop a little something in my tip jar this past week. Thank you, lady. It feels so good to be supported, and your encouragement couldn’t have come at a better time.
Le Love List
1. Raw Cacao. I was never really a chocolate person, but now . . . I am a convert! Oh my goodness, if you’ve never tried silky smooth, raw chocolates made with real, raw cacao, you need to rectify that situation immediately.
2. Uncooking. Damn, you know what? I’m pretty good at this! I’ve been having success after success in my raw kitchen, devising some truly amazing and innovative recipes. It feels really good to discover this new passion and skill set, and MAN – it tastes good!
3) My garden. Eeep! It’s soooo amazing this year, guys! I need to get a post up and share how it’s coming along. I’m growing curly kale, dino kale, swiss chard, bok choy, chioga beets, heirloom beets, snap peas, calendula, dill, walla walla onions, tomatoes (4 varieties), basil, zinnias, spinach, pumpkins, acorn squash, butternut squash, black squash (heirloom), watermelon, pickling cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, cosmos, heirloom lettuce, romaine, butter lettuce, and chamomile. I think that’s it? Woo-hoo!
Alright guys, now it’s your turn! What do you love this week?
