Haven't felt much like blogging lately. My mother suffered two falls in one day last week, landing her in the hospital with a broken ankle; complications developed, and she was in ICU for three days. And, now, she is in an extended care facility for rehab until further notice. Sadly, I've noticed just over the past few days a decline in her memory and thought patterns. I have been told by the medical staff that it's a result of one of her meds, and not to worry -- but I do.
Anyway, I am in great need of therapy - and will be doing a practice cake this afternoon for a friend's upcoming wedding. Will post later with the results; but the only hint I can give you now is that it's chocolate, merlot, cream cheese and more ... Just have to create the dang recipe first.

- When I was 55, I decided to embrace the things I love and hold precious and dear, regardless of anyone else's thoughts and opinion. I am a visual folk artist who loves flowers - my own flowers, grown and/or painted by me. I love good, hearty, exotic foods, and I love to prepare them myself. I love the secret garden situated in my backyard, regardless of how overgrown and wild it gets. No longer able to afford a vacation, this will have to be it for the time being. In the winter months, I still enjoy it. Anyway, here I am sharing my art, favorite recipes, cocktails, gardening tips, and just my usual vents and bantering. After all, I'm old enough to say whatever the heck I want to now ...
