Long Dark Absence of the Blogger

[insert sounds of crickets chirping here]

It has been a little too quiet around here, and I miss our long conversations at tea time…er, wait…

I have missed sharing with you all the fabulous food we have been making and….eating! We really have had some GREAT meals of late! Basil Turkey Burgers, Chili Lime Sweet Potato Fries, muffin madness: French Breakfast Muffins, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Almond Muffins, Cranberry Bran Muffins, Corn and Green Chile Muffins, Coffee Chocolate Muffins (THAT recipe I shall surely share with you soon!) BLT Salad with homemade Croutons, Tuille “Bowls” with fresh fruit and cream, homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream Cones with a very fun new toy I received for my birthday…the list goes on.

But I have been unable to take the time to share with you because we are in the process of placing an offer on a NEW HOUSE!!!! We are so excited to have this opportunity – the home we qualified for is BE-YEW-TIFUL!!!

So we have a looooooooooooong to-do list to make this happen:

  • listing our current residence
  • fixing things up that we always wanted to have fixed while we lived here but now that someone else will own it we will give them all the luxuries we could not (and still cannot!) afford…[funny how that works]
  • showing the house to prospective buyers
  • keeping the house completely immaculate for prospective buyers
  • inspections
  • appraisals
  • insane amounts of cleaning and organizing
  • panicking (haha! Not kidding!)
  • drinking copious amounts of coffee to have the energy to go insane…
  • signing our life away on contracts and offers
  • packing
  • moving
  • am I forgetting anything?
So, in the words of Madness:

Our house it has a crowd
There’s always something happening
And it’s usually quite loud
Our mum she’s so house-proud
Nothing ever slows her down
And a mess is not allowed

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our …

Our house, in the middle of our street
Our house, in the middle of our …
Something tells you that you’ve got to get away from it

Yes. Our House. In the middle of our street. And a mess is not allowed. My new mantra.

See you soon!
