Oh. Hi.


Hi. I'm back.
Exactly a year since I last posted. I felt it was time. I'm sorta ready again.
I had a bad year. I could not have blogged, for money or brownies. I was recovering from a very badly broken foot (the doctor tells me this on the last day I saw him). I felt dull, unintelligent. I kept trying to decide what my blog was about, should I ever resume writing.
And it kept being about food.
I acquired four or five adorable new cookbooks during the past year but I was free from feeling forced to come up with fabulous meals, and photographing them. One of my cameras quit working, anyway. I emailed a few iPad photos to my mainframe computer, but my email program isn't working.
Yeah, I've had a hard time.
But I think I want to do this.
I'm back.

Nice to see you back! And sorry you had a tough year. I know what that's like!

Ohai! Sorry to hear about the bummer year and foot. There is something in the cosmos because a handful of wonderful bloggers like you whom I used to follow are blogging again. It's like Christmas! Anyway, glad you're back and feeling better.

Zoomie said...

Kalyn: How perfect that you are first to swing by. Thanks for the nice thoughts.

Katie S: No kidding? If you check back, I'd love to hear who else is stumbling back. :) Thanks for being here.

Zoomie: You've got me on a reader feeder thingie? You are sweet. Hi!

Mama Bean said...

lol I have a folder on my RSS marked 'inactive' and I love when I get the 'new item' notification :) good to see you again!

cookiecrumb said...

Zoomie: I decided not to announce my return on Twitter, and just wait and see if anyone dropped by. Yay!

Mama Bean: Hi! How you bean? Heh. Let me try to be sufficiently active here. At least once in a while. I'm glad you visited!

Charlie said...

There are bad years... (we've all had them) but there is always food :)
Glad to read your 'voice' again.

Charlie: I'm so happy you're here. Thanks for the encouragement, and best to you.

Cyndi said...

I've missed you! And in this past year, I've quit the food blog, and just do the quilting and travel. Greetings from Yellowstone, where I'm working all summer. Glad to see you back.

cookiecrumb said...

Missed you too, Cyndi. Blogging can get tiresome!
As for you: Could Yellowstone be any more perfect?
Best wishes to you with the quilting. The traveling, I already know you got that down. :)

Shelley Rauch said...

Woo-hoo! I am so happy see a new post notification here! I've missed your awesome sense of humor. Sorry to hear about the bad year... but things do inevitably improve. Cheers! from the blogger formerly known as s'kat

Shelly: OMG. You are s'kat. It's hard for me to adjust, you having a real, normal name! (I love the name Shelley.)
So happy to see you! Love.

Tammy! Tammytammytammytammytammy! So awesome to receive a drive-by from you. I still follow you, but I'm afraid I lurk.

I was just cleaning out my Bookmarks and was about to delete this site, but double-clicked instead, and voila! You have risen from the grave. How lovely. And to be honest, I could care less about food blogs. It's your voice that's interesting, so write about whatever the heck you want.

cookiecrumb said...

Yeah, Mike! Woo!
Thanks for not deleting me. I got back just in time.
I appreciate your remark. You are remarkable.

Pink Granite: Helloooo, Lee! How damn grand of you to leave a kind message.
(It was the worstest, spookiest year. I was pretty sick, and didn't have the mental capacity to know it.)

Long-time-lurker-never-commenter here. Never realized how much I missed you! Welcome, welcome back. So happy to get you and Cranky back in my life on a regular basis.
