It's been a short while friends and for my absence I am terribly sorry. July has been an interesting month for me, and by interesting I mostly mean challenging. I've felt recluse and uninspired, which has left my blogging well a little dry. I tend to let my emotions show, at least a little bit, so it's hard for me to put on a happy face around here and pretend that I'm the happiest little home-making blogger. That's not me...that's not real. There's been no significant trials or circumstances--maybe the heat has finally gotten to me and I'm just a little cranky--but regardless, it leaves me running for comforts and old favorites and not very much exciting news for you guys.
Maybe I need to bake myself one of these--an Unbirthday Cake by my new blogger friend Nico of Satin & Salt who just needed to make a few wishes.
I've been reading this new release--but my Nook recently bit the dust, meaning I can only read my Nook books inside on my iPad while I'm back to paperbacks for direct sunlight.
I also found a tasty new salmon recipe that I'd love to share with you, too.
All is reasonably well and with any luck I'll be back in full force in the kitchen very soon. Some new kitchen gadgets can't hurt as motivation either.
plus, how bad can things be when there's a gazillion pictures of Ryan Lochte on pintrest?
How do you beat your slumps?
