I’m Back!!!

It’s been a few months since I last inflicted my personal thoughts on everyone posted.  It became overwhelming to me to continue with the blog and all of the preparations surrounding the holidays.  Since then I have thought about writing something, but I had a lot going on (Words with Friends, increased work load, a new grandbaby, etc.) and writing the blog seemed more like work than fun to me.  Part of the Paleo life-style that I have embraced is to emphasize play and fun in my life.  The one exception to this is my job.  However, my job provides other benefits, so I will continue to do it.

TMOTH (The Man of the House) has encouraged me to return to writing the blog, particularly when he sees me doing something interesting in the kitchen.  He suggested that the blog would be less stressful to me if I backed off on the frequency of posting.  I had initially aimed to post every day.  I found that I was spending a lot of time on the weekends trying to get posts together for the next week.  Frankly, I’d rather be playing Words with Friends hiking or reading.  I have decided to see if I can maintain a frequency of “several times a week”.

My Paleo Passage has continued to evolve over the past few months.  TMOTH and I continue to follow a Paleo eating plan.  We are also becoming Locavores.  I read Barbara Kingsolver’s book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life and it inspired me to try to eat as locally as possible.  This interest has led me to become interested in growing and preserving foods.

My interest in traditional or ancestral diets continues to evolve.  I have joined the Weston A. Price Foundation and am working my way through Nourishing Traditions: . I am planning to attend their annual meeting in November.

Some things that I plan to inflict on share with you in upcoming blog posts are my continuous brew Kombucha, my struggles to adhere to my exercise plan, recipes with local food items, my continuing experiments with the odd bits, and my forays into food preservation.

    Yay! So happy to see you’re back!! I love your blog. I often enjoy it whilst snacking on a Snickers bar washed down with a big glass of chocolate milk… 🙂 Love you!

      I’m glad you like it. I often write it whilst snacking on some 85% dark chocolate washed down with a glass of local Cabernet. 🙂 Plus whilst I am writing the blog I cannot be plotting my next move in my quest to kick your bootie in Words with Friends. 😀

    Every day is too much for me, too. I’m aiming for 10-15 posts a month, with some being relatively short, like a link to a thing we really like. And really, aiming for 10 with 15 being more of a stretch goal.

      That seems like a reasonable goal. I do enjoy the writing. It’s a good outlet for me. Doing it every day felt like I had a second job. I want to keep the blog in the play category.
