Simple Winter Plans
My winter plans are quite simple. Although it sounds like fun, I will not be traveling south for some sun and warmth. No, my winter plans are simply to stay home and that is fine with me. I look forward to spending some time reading and trying out some new recipes. Time always passes quickly and this winter will be no different as I continue to learn my new job as general manager of our health food store. Lately I have not had as much time as I would like to cook and read. Autumn is always a very busy time putting up food for the winter and working in the garden. I am now done with the year's canning and the garden is ready for the winter so I am beginning to catch up on the housework. As I dusted these shelves (there is a lot of dust left behind from putting drain tile in the basement) this evening I began to actually look forward to those cold winter evenings, wrapped in an afghan, reading to my heart's content.
I have neglected my collection of cookbooks and cooking magazines this summer/autumn (not to mention this website). I do hope to get back to testing new recipes and creating a few to share, but I have a very busy schedule for the next month so I am trying to be patient and remember there will be time...soon.
