Blah, blah, blah. Yeaaah, I know. I've fallen off the radar. Again. I, of all people, know how muchly I suck. It would be great if I had a really awesome excuse, but sadly, I am too lame. I've just been busy with children and work and stuff that is really too boring to talk about.
But now, the sun is shining, spring is here and I am crawling out of my self-induced hibernation to say, "What's up, internet?"
Mmmhhmm, mhhhmmm, that's nice. Let's talk about me instead.
We just got home last week from our trip down South. We stayed in Lexington (lurve it there), then Atlanta for four nights and then we drove up into the North Georgia mountains to stay at Brasstown Valley Resort. We rode everyday while we were there, which thrilled the girls. They are both totally horse-crazy now and I am so excited because I get to ride too. Whee! Horsies!
Look at how stinkin' cute this miniature horse is at The Kentucky Horse Park.
We had a gorgy 3 room cottage at Brasstown Valley. There was a full kitchen so we ended up cooking dinner there, although their room service menu looked yum. The weather was sunny and springy while we were there, but the nights were cool, so we had fires at night. The pool at the resort was in the main lodge, so of course, the girlies went swimming everyday.
All in all, it was a fabulous get-away and judging by the four books I read whilst away, I'd say relaxing too. I'll be posting the rest of the piccies this afternoon (The mothership's stupido computer won't allow her to view them in her inbox, so I hafta post them online for her to view.)
Tomorrow is my 39th (SOB!) birthday and I am supposed to be working my little ass off today so I can hit the town with my friends and familia, but instead I am making a white bean barley and smokey ham soup out of Easter left-overs since it is rainy and cool here today. I've been cooking and experimenting with more and more whole grains lately and now I am addicted and adding them to everything.
I've been documenting and trying to (glamorously, dahling) photograph my new foodie adventures, so expect a new recipe section soon. I am working with a graphic designer on a new masthead because frankly, this place needs a make-over. And I need a face-lift, but that's a whole other story.
More soon, mah dear internets. I've missed your cute little face.
