Sorry, I don't have a written excuse from my mom.
I know it’s been a long time but I haven’t forgotten you. I thought I had better leave a quick note letting you know what’s going on and why I haven’t posted any recipes in so long. First, I got in rut and wasn’t cooking or baking anything new then when I did get back to new recipes, I noticed that my vision wasn’t quite up to par. Recipes were getting more difficult to read and my pictures just weren’t looking right…couldn’t really tell if they were in focus or not. One day while driving to Meijer I noticed that I really couldn’t read the street signs very well and driving when the sun was out was a little scary. Don’t worry, I’m not putting my life or anyone else’s in danger, at that point I quit driving and now Michael is, "Driving Ms. Cookiebaker"…..I think I could get used to having a chauffeur. Long story short, my vision just kept getting worse so I went to my ophthalmologist last Monday and was told that I have cataracts. Who me? I’m not old enough for cataracts…only old people get those don’t they? Oh wait, I am old…why do I keep forgetting that? LOL! Anyway, I’m scheduled for surgery, in fact two surgeries; he won’t do both eyes at once...wish he would so I could just get it over with and not have to worry about both of them. Hopefully in a little over a month, my vision will be back to normal and I can get back to working on posts for this blog. Until then, keep on cooking and baking!
