I'm Gonna Write You a Letter

Dear Blog,

I've been busy lately! And I've been less than inclined to write to you, which I'm sorry for.  I realize that you may feel neglected, and I want to remedy this.  This here letter is my first attempt to cheer you up!

See, Blog, a lot has happened lately.  My wonderful boyfriend had to move out of our lovely apartment here and back to Grand Rapids for a job.  Man, it's been sad and tough.  But you understand, don't you? Needless to say I've felt less than inspired to write you a letter about sad things.  I only want to share my best stories with you!

And with that.... Look how fun my weekend has been, Blog! Mister came out for a long weekend visit and we had a blast.  We biked over to our good friends new fabulous apartment.  Wow, it really inspired me to bump up my craftiness.  And we wentout for some semi-okay sushi!  And a bird pooped on my head!  Okay, so I hear that's good luck.... But I'm still waiting on the luck from it.  And we went to Target where I bought a picnic basket for my rear rack.  I'm so excited to carry stuff in it! (We even transported 2 pies, 2 beers, plates, glasses, and a blanket on my bike yesterday).

Fantastic Basket!

Wowee.  Then, yesterday, we had a fun dinner party in the park that we biked to.  And we baked pies! Mmm!  I was a little apprehensive about the pies since I'm not amazing at them but guess what! That all changed yesterday!  I made a super tasty rhubarb pie and Johnboy made a yummy mixed berry pie.  I can make pie now! See!

Now my mister just left for the week with Ashdog.  Man, I'm going to be lonely.  But I get to go to Toronto for work so it won't be a complete depression pit.   But I'm going to get going for now, Blog.  I'll write to you again soon!




  1. Glad to hear it's going... ok.

    Your bike is lovely, I'm still trying to find replacements down here. : P

  2. Amanda, I haven't stopped gushing about your rhubarb pie all day! It was the perfect way to introduce me (finally!) to such a delicious fruit... or is it a veggie? Either way, it was perfect and I'm glad you & John could come to the picnic!!

    See you soon, I hope!

  3. I think it's a veggie. Thanks for the invite! It was really fun!

  4. i just learned it's a FRUIT! thank you, market fresh cookbook, with interesting facts about every type of produce :)
