It has been many months since I have posted, well it has been since April! Most of the spring, summer and fall were taken up with a restaurant that I started with 2 other partners. The food was great, our customers, well for the most part incredible, but the staffing and behind the scene issues were just too much. I won’t get into specifics, but myself and one other partner decided to close the restaurant in September. It was a sad day and very disappointing, but it was the right thing to do. I believe that we were onto something that is needed and wanted in out town, just how to do it with the employee base in a very small town is the issue and with neither one of us being chef trained – there lays the big issue.
I had all good intentions to start posting again this past summer and did much, but never quite got around to posting new recipes, new craft projects, gardening projects, etc – I guess they will have to wait until next summer.
The past couple of months the major project consisted of a new bathroom and bedroom in the partially finished basement. If I do not see a paintbrush for many, many months I would not be disappointed! But that will not be the case – other projects are being put together for other parts of the house for the winter….. Food was put up over the summer, bread made, knitting done, new recipes tried.
Who knows what will happen next, but I open and excited to see what it is. I am glad to be back to posting and creating and sharing!
