Up To My A@# In Alligators

Hi Folks. It's only been three days since my last post and I feel like I'm out in left field. All of my favorite food bloggers are merrily, merrily posting away, daily!, while I've been looking longingly at my cooking photos and at my computer then firmly squaring my shoulders and saying NO! Because sometimes, as Nancy used to say (does she still say it?), you've just gotta say no. I would, and can and have, merrily spend countless hours writing up a post or reading others' posts. And I mean hours. And that doesn't account for the cooking that I do.

Consequently, everyone once in a while the rest of my life, and work, suffers. So now I'm doing penance and actually catching up with paperwork, bookkeeping, housework, shopping, and preparing for this potluck party we're giving tomorrow. I'll have to try to catch up with blogging on Sunday. 'Til then, there are some cool photos on my garden blog. Take a look!

Thanks Jann. I've got a few posts up my sleeve. Just waiting for some time to get to them.
Keep up your good work!

I had to laugh because a few weeks ago I decided I would start taking Sundays off. I just can't keep up the schedule that I've been doing, even with adding things like Friday Food Porn and South Beach Recipes of the Week where I don't have to cook something. Only it didn't really work because some weeks I have to do WHB on Sunday. So this morning when I woke up I decided I'm moving the SB recipes of the week to Sunday and from now on I AM TAKING SATURDAY OFF. Honest!! I really mean it. I am not posting a thing on Saturday from now on. (I'm laughing as I write it. But I am really serious about it.)

(Of course I just posted something on Blogher, but that's a whole different story.)

Christine, your posts and photos are worth waiting for!

christine said...

Thank you for that vote of confidence! :)

I know just how you feel and I don't post near as often as you do, although I aspire to. Sometimes I wish I didn't feel so compelled!

You're sweet! Thanks!

I don't know how you manage to fit it all in, but as others have said I can wait for your lovely recipes and garden blog.
