My apologies for not posting more lately. I've been on deadline for the next book.
But more importantly, it's that time of the year on the farm that everything must be winterized. I find myself outside in the morning, digging and tending and manuring. I feel as if only an hour has passed but in fact it's already close to night fall. I read an article years ago regarding the science of playing in dirt. "Soil Bacteria Increases Serotonin Levels!" Well, that explains it. I really can't recommend it enough.
In other news, my December feature on holiday desserts in Better Homes and Gardens is now available at your local newsstand. I had such a great time on this shoot, from developing recipes to taking the pictures. The Better Homes crew have become like family...the kind you really like.
And I think that shows in this piece. I hope you love it as much as I do.
