You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone
(They paved paradise and put in a parking lot)
To all of my blog followers who may have been wondering ‘what’s new’ I apologize for not writing much throughout September. My significant other of 25 years passed away on September 22. He was not involved with my writing—and hardly knew a thing about computers—but I miss his presence. And if you’ve read the posts in my archive files, you would have found occasional references to Bob. Many of our projects over the decades were joint endeavors – when I canned jellies and jams, pickles and relishes, – it was Bob who hauled all of our entries to the Los Angeles County Fair. When we created a gingerbread house, he drew the blueprint for it. When we made sauerkraut, Bob was the person doing most of the shredding (I tend to cut my fingernails off).
And, I do have something new to write about; I went to Ohio for 6 days to regroup amongst family and friends and a cousin gave me a cookbook that belonged to our maternal grandmother. I’m looking forward to sharing that book with you.
Thank you for your continued interest in Sandy’s Chatter.
