I'm not one of those bloggers who tell all the details of their life on the blog every day, but some days you just need to unload. This was one of those days. This is not my actual car, but it could have been. Yesterday afternoon there was quite a snowstorm when I was driving home from school. Last night I had to go outside and shovel the snow for the first time this season. If you're reading this from a warm climate, shoveling snow is not one of the things I like about living in Utah.
When I went to bed they predicted a cold morning. I got up early, like I always do, to post something on the blog before I went to work. I write at night, save the drafts, and then post in the morning, a system that works well for me. Today I was in the middle of checking for typos, something I try to do every morning, when the power went off. It stayed off for about 40 minutes, but when it finally came back on I couldn't get my cable internet connection back.
Ok, I was already quite mad, cold, and close to being late for school (not a happy thought when there are 26 kids bouncing up and down wondering if they are having a substitute), and then I had to go out and scrape off the car. This was not the best day of the year to have me for a teacher!
The post for today was going to be my latest attempt at cooking one of Mark Bittman's Recipes from The Best Rcipes in the World, but it's so late now that I think I will save that for tomorrow. Check back.
Meanwhile, here's a report on my new Utah blog buddy. Congrats to Sweetnicks, Mae, Ilva, Cookiecrumb, Lisa, and Kitchenmage who discovered us both and left comments on my blog. If you didn't manage to find us both, or if you're just hearing about this now, my Utah blog friend is Vanessa from She Craves. Here's a link to her version of our combined effort at a post letting the world know that we are joining forces to take over the food scene in Utah.
Now if we could just do something about the weather.
