Confession time: I was supposed to post Max’s annual Christmas story today. Somehow, something weird happened and I lost a good chunk of the story. Yesterday, my hosting service went down and I don’t know if that did something as I was working on it when it happened or if something else — gasp, user error — happened. Either way, I still need to do some work on MaxE’s Christmas Tall Tail, but it should be posted next Monday.
You may have also noticed that I haven’t posted any new recipes this month too. After all, it’s Christmas time, aka a food blogger’s nirvana. So what’s going on? Sigh. Maybe, someone, who wishes to remain anonymous, might have accidentally broke (but hopefully not permanently) her camera.
Fingers crossed, my Dad can straighten out the lens when I go home next week. The good news is that he has successfully fixed the same problem on my Mom’s camera, so I’m hoping his track record holds true. No pressure, Dad! Okay, a little pressure!
Sometimes when it rains, it pours, which, ironically, it did rain last night and was music to this girl’s ears. We desperately need rain here in California, and I have always loved the symbolic nature of rain. I’m ready for a fresh start and new year.
While I’m certainly not thrilled with some of the snafu’s I’ve experienced lately and won’t pretend that I didn’t throw myself an old-fashioned pity party, but I also know how good my life really is. It’s not perfect, but at the end of the day, it’s also pretty charmed. And that’s a pretty darn good Christmas present.
