Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

It's Not My Fault

We had a great Christmas . . . 
Sarah and her family came down from Minnesota

However, my "Apple" got sick!

His illness helped along by . . . a person I shall not name
(I want to stay on his good side)

"Apple" got taken to the Apple Doctor, who advised us to leave her for she was really ill
So ill in fact she had to have surgery
Sigh, a week without my little "Apple"
(But I limped along with Husband Jim's old Chrome)

She arrived back hale and healthy
And when I tried to sign in to my blog,
it wouldn't let me
It didn't recognize my email

I couldn't understand why
I googled and searched and got to the blogger site
But, alas, nothing could tell me how to get into my blog

And then I remembered
I started the blog in 2008
I had a different server.
I had a different email.
But I couldn't remember what it was!

And tonight it all came back
So here I am again

But in the weeks since my last post . . . 
We had Christmas

The girls were enthralled by the Magical City of Scott

 I have many afternoon teas
(orange nutmeg madeleines are my tea nosh)

I've entertained

Returned the house to it's January bareness
(which means the Christmas tree is down and all the decorations are in bins in the basement)

Painted my kitchen island green

And recovered the breakfast room chairs (again!)

It's good to be back . . . I have weeks of stories to tell!

I am so pleased that you posted again. I was worried that you were no longer in Blog land. Welcome Back! You were missed. I look forward to seeing the wonderful posts you share with us. So glad you got the computer up and running again.

Yes, in blog land, Christmas lasted "forever" at Linderhof!

Happy 2018 Martha! So relieved to see you here again...was more concerned with each passing day. Bloggers remind us of real "family".

Kathy said...
