You may have noticed that this blog has been more quiet than usual this week. That's because it is with a heavy heart that I write this final post of the year. I know this may come as a surprise to my ever faithful visitors; it is to me also. However, I have given it much thought and I feel this is best.

I have every intention of blogging once again but I'm afraid it won't be until January 2011. With the exception of the Picnic Game, I haven't been happy with my postings the last couple of months. I'm sure you as readers were getting a bit tired of my references to previous posts. I know I was. I'd like to do a new blog design and possibly get a dedicated url. I have tons of notes and cookbooks that must be tended to in order for me to stay up to date on all the wonderful foodies celebrations that occur throughout the year.

On a personal note, I'm leaving for Idaho this Saturday and will be there for an undetermined amount of time. Marion is doing better and she has arranged to have someone come and stay with her while I am gone.

I'm not very good at good-byes... Thank you all. You have been just wonderful guests and I truly appreciate all of your support and encouragement. Thank you so much, "see" you here in January, Louise. (I'll be dropping by your places whenever time allows:)

Take Time
Take time to live; it is the secret of success.
Take time to think; it is the source of power.
Take time to play; it is the secret of youth.
Take time to read; it is the foundation of knowledge.
Take time for friendship; it is the source of happiness.
Take time for God; it is life's only lasting investment.
(from an old cookbook)

from where I stand:)
