Yikes. I didn’t actually intend to take a full week off from blogging. But around the time we got all the Christmas dinner dishes cleaned and put away last Saturday I was feeling a little off and when I woke up the following morning I had a full blown cold, a gift from my sister. I spent the second half of my vacation in Portland dragging around my parents’ house, blowing my nose a lot and sleeping.
I managed to get back to Philadelphia on Wednesday, but was so wiped out by the time I stumbled through our front door that I was nearly weeping with exhaustion. I’ve spent the last few days laying low, watching bad television with Scott and eating take-out. We had a few friends over last night for a very low-key new year’s eve celebration, but aside from that, I barely seen anyone or left the apartment in the last three days.
However, I have a couple of freelance deadlines rapidly approaching, as well as a potluck brunch to attend tomorrow, so I’ll be back in the kitchen soon, cooking up a whirlwind.
I hope everyone has had a good holiday season! Happy new year!
P.S. This site got a nod from Fine Cooking, in their year-end Best of the Blog round-up. If you have the time, you can head over and give a vote!
Wishing you & Scott a Happy New Year!, Marisa and glad to hear you’re feeling better! Your morning email has been missed ;0)!
Good Luck with the Best Blog Round-Up. Voted for you the other day.
Got my vote in for you! Can’t wait for the winter citrus festival and marmalades to begin…
I too spent the holidays with The Head Cold That Wouldn’t Die (it lasted two whole weeks). Hope you feel better soon!
Happy new year, Marisa! Hope you’re feeling better soon.
Sounds simular of what I had over Christmas. I spent Christmas in bed. I can’t imagine flying with this nastiness going around. I had a fever of 101.7 with it if it is the same thing. I was wondering how you were doing, since I didn’t see you around here. Just voted for your blog today and it was close when I voted. Happy New Year. I’m getting ready to send in my check for my summer CSA. Opened up a jar of my peaches this morning. Oh, how canning brings summer all year around! 🙂
Been there myself, Marisa-since before Christmas and just starting to feel better now overcoming a sinus infection & bronchitis. Yesterday was my first good day in more than a week. Lots of rest and fluids! Take care!
Congrats on the nomination! It’s well-deserved, and I cast my vote for you.
Here’s to a great 2011
