I'm kind of a jerk. My dear mother has finally retired so she's got some free time on her hands. And my parents finally have a home computer. Those of you who click over to my comments know that my mom loves keeping in touch with me through my blog (a three hour time zone difference can make phone calls home more difficult than you'd think). But as soon as my mom got the time to check in here with regularity, I went and took a week off from posting. And honestly, I foresee quiet days ahead here, too. I'm not insanely busy, but I'm enjoying the computer less and less these days. But I gotta give my momma a little something. So, Mom, for you, a photo of a sight I see daily. And since I can't talk to you without mentioning food (I can't talk to anyone without mentioning food), check out this polenta pizza recipe that Barry made for dinner Sunday night. I promise, I'll stop back here soon.
