I’m sure everyone is wondering what happened to Shaw Girl? Where did I go? What was I doing? Am I even still alive? Well, fear not, I am alive…just not a fan of the heat that is DC summer. I don’t like baking or cooking in the heat, even if I do have air conditioning. Besides there was so much to do and see, how could you possibly expect me to chain myself to a stove? You will be happy to know that I thoroughly enjoyed my summer but am now so psyched that it’s Fall!
I LOVE this time of year…almost as much as I love Christmas (you’ve been warned, so don’t be shocked when everything from mid November until the end of December has something to do with Christmas). The crisp coolness in the air; the beautiful sweaters and cute wool jackets; the chance to snuggle up under the blanket with The Boy (uhmmm, yeah I picked up a guy along the way this summer…kind of like shopping for a new car) with cups of tea and Deep Space Nine (and I also picked up an almost obsessive love for DS9…it’s better than heroin, right); and the wonderful opportunities to bake. As it is, I have a few ideas for pumpkin related treats and my mother’s favorite cranberry bread (I am required to make it at every family Thanksgiving).
So now that I’ve caught you up on my summer vacation, I am happy to announce Shaw Girl is back and ready to lay the whisk smack down on her kitchen. To keep from getting burned out again, I plan to go from daily posts to several times a week. But no worries! Adventures will still be had and recorded! Tonight I am sipping tea, under my Grandmother’s quilt and enjoying the change in weather. But I will be back this week with an ode to pumpkins (or perhaps even apples)! So stay tuned…
