I tell you it has been a crazy last couple of weeks and I realize that I have been away from writing for some time now. First it was the run up to my wife's flight over here to the USA and I can say she arrived safely. I spent most of my time with her, helping her to adjust to the the USA and we went out clothes shopping as North Florida Fall is here and her clothes are not warm enough to cope. I was just enjoying spending time with her for the first time in over 1 1/2 years so, understandably, the blog suffered.
About the time my wife finally was getting settled Thanksgiving arrived, and with it a plethora of cooking including a 12lb Amish raised turkey smoked on the grill and a vintage recipe for Amish Apple-Sausage stuffing. It was the best Thanksgiving we have had in a long time and I'm so happy my wife was able to share it with us. Today we will be getting into the overhead in the garage and taking down the boxes of Christmas decorations. I don't know if we'll get around to decorating today but we'll certainly get through arranging all the decorations and seeing what still works after years of storage.
I will get back to writing on Monday and I apologize for getting away from the blog for so long. It was never my intention to leave it in the lurch but on the flipside I hope you can understand that family take precedence, especially when you have been apart for so long.
