I have no excuse

No, I’m not one of the work from home folks. I am one of those, I need new favorite recipes folks. So I went on eBay and purchased some cookbooks.

51 in all. Looking for something new.

So far, I’ve found strawberry nut bread and a lot of gelatin-based desserts.

I hope to find so many more.

I also find it amazing that most cookbooks have a dessert section 1/3 the size of a book. Guess we have our priorities right.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Timber

There was a loud thump. Then odd shadows in the wee hours of the morning. Until a flashlight picked out what was wrong.

Hubbinator measured the arm. It was 12 feet high.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Seeds of Destruction

Well my new release was supposed to be out by now.

I’m at 108,000 words with 15 chapters to go. I have written 5 chapters since I had originally blocked out those last 15, but I still have 15 chapters to write.

Writing apparently falls outside of the rules of math.

And as an aside, the cover I thought I had selected for this book is actually for another cover.

Oops.

So now, I have to figure out another cover.

The good news is I should have another chapter finished today. Which means I will have 15 left to go. Seriously?

Ugh.

Ah well, until next time. Stay safe my friends.

Friday Fun Fact

While gelatin derived desserts have been around since the late 1880s, the 1950s were the decade most responsible for those sugary, gelatin sweets that keep popping up at pot lucks.

Um, not a fan, especially as it seemed to be a go-to food for every illness during childhood.

Well, that and ginger ale.

Until next time. Stay healthy.
