Hello ... is anyone still out there?

 Hello ... is anyone still out there?

It has been 1 year since my last post. A very L O N G time ago! I have kinda forgotten how to post, so lets see how this goes!

The Corona-Virus has hit hard as you are all aware, and we are on "Stay Home" status here in California. I have had lots of time to think ... and I realized I have missed blogging and my little Etsy shop! As I am writing here it sure brings back tons of wonderful feelings and memories I had blogging and creating. Blogging opened up so many wonderful opportunities for me.

So giving it another try, even if its just me and my journaling. I plan on making books out of my blog for each year.
Here's to another year!!!
Recently I made this big brownie in my cast iron skillet! 
It turned out beautifully. I keep my skillet on my stove and love cooking and baking in it.
 Still using my cute tole~painted kitchen table for taking closeup pictures!
Some things never change!

Oh, and I have an INSTAGRAM account HERE.
Ok, here's to a NEW POST!
Wishing you and yours a blessed day!
Stay safe. You are in my prayers.

Hi, I am happy that you are blogging again. It looks like about 3 years to me. I love the brownie. Have you had your blog redesigned? It looks new to me. I hope to see many more posts.

Oh how exciting to see you this morning! I always loved your blog posts!

Hi there MaryJane! I have blogged for years and also follow you on IG! I agree, blogging has brought such beauty and joy into my life! I love using iron skillets too, they're the best! Glad you are blogging again! Blessings to you!!

Welcome back. No more brownie pictures please, I'm dieting. They look so yummy.

So happy to see you! I was thinking about you the other day...I pray for the bloggers and Instagram ladies I follow. These are certainly unusual times and I am proud that Americans (for the most part) are being positive and trying to help other out, even if only virtually. "Stay at home" is much simpler than "shelter in place". The Urban Farmer and I are very much homebodies, so except for selecting our own produce in the market and hunting (like Elmer Fudd) for toilet paper, we are living our lives pretty much as before. Let us know how you are doing!

So happy to see you! I was thinking about you the other day...I pray for the bloggers and Instagram ladies I follow. The Urban Farmer and I are very much homebodies and aside from not being able to select our produce at the market and hunting (like Elmer Fudd) for toilet paper, our days are not too different from pre-COVID 19. Let us know how you are and what fun things you are doing during these stay at home days. *hugs*

Welcome back! That brownie looks delicious! Did you reduce the baking time to keep it from over baking in that iron skillet? They hold heat for a long time!

It's really funny that I am hearing from so many that I have not heard from in months. I myself had lost interest and find that Now it is just the opposite. I can't wait to hear from my blogger friends, it really lifts my spirits. So a big welcome back.

Melanie said...

Bit late to the party but I am so glad to have found you again. So many of the Old School blogs have disappeared so it’s wonderful to be able to connect again. ๐Ÿ˜Š
