settle in

by ann


Hi, all. It’s been quiet around here and it’s because I have arrived AT LAST.

I’ve been too busy driving, reassuring my mother of my safety, listening to talks of stranger danger, trying to find where to buy things and scolding Chibi for barking at every dog, stranger and loud noise to do much else. But I’m stealing a few minutes of sleep to say my clothes are neatly hung and folded; bed, mattress and dresser acquired; and first meal made. After days of fast food and greasy Chinese, I craved something simple: sun dried tomatoes softened in warm olive oil, tossed with rice and herbs, infused with truffle oil and topped with a well-seasoned egg.

More to come.
