Hibernation has begun 

Finn and I had a good game of fetch at the lake this morning, so he’s nice and relaxed. 

It took a while to get going, but alligator butchering scene in revision. 

The season: five extra pounds (already?) and the need for an additional hour of sleep a night. Hard not to judge myself. 

Meatloaf is hibernation food, for sure. With potatoes, naturally.

    I hear you and share in the judge-fest … even as my rational mind says “your body senses the return of the cold and with it the lean times … it is preparing itself.” In any case, you wear it well.

    And if I had an apron that seriously cool, I’d wear it, too!

      I’ve worn that apron to shreds. Maybe it’s time to make another one. Some years I feel the change of season less. It seems a little drastic this year.

      Tonight: roasted chicken with goat cheese, chives, thyme, and rosemary under the skin, braised red cabbage and apples with a green salad. And it’s dark already!

      thanks, again! it’s funny what an apron-wearer I’ve become… so much so that when I know I’m going to be in the kitchen at friend’s or family’s, I bring one along. I like it to tuck a kitchen towel in… always a place to wipe my hands.


Love to hear what you think!
