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!
