The Yin-Yang of it all

Quiet on the home front. The carrot cake is baking. I found the most beautiful carrot in the fridge...a Cate Farm Carrot Cake was inspired from this large carrot and my want for something sweet and warm...fresh cake! I am delighted to be walking about the kitchen without a crutch and I can carry things! Jonah was over again bringing back the borrowed car. He's excited with the plan that he and friend Twig will be helping Bruce take the yurt down on Sunday and get the pieces up to Lowell. There is talk afloat that a team is forming for yurt building. The other excitement he has is the upcoming trip to Mexico on Halloween...a workers Union conference.
My other son Ezra was scheduled to leave Chiapas yesterday...a ten day conference on Reforestation. I haven't heard from him for 10 days..not really worried but it is on my mind. Once a mother always a mother.

oh! the cake is done and it is delicious with coconut, cranberries, and candied ginger. Wish I could be sharing it right now when it warm. Wish I could be sharing this blog with some of my favorite people, but so many of them don't do blogs, don't have much computer access. Lovely card from my friend in Paris today and I ought to be writing out a response, but I don't like the look of my letters. Heck! I can hardly read my own writing. So, who am I blogging to? Not my sister, my sons, my mother or brother, not to my art group, or my team at work, or to most of the people I greet at the Framer's market. And not Lisa. Who are you out there who make a visit here with me? Give me a sign.

Maggie, keep up the good spirits as you mend. Yes, those of us computer nerds are here with you. Enjoy that carrot cake!

Thank you Jayne and Altoon for letting me know you are out there, and here with me. yes, enjoying the carrot cake, almost a fruit cake in the best sense of the word. Art ideas are starting to form again...I must be healing!

Somehow I missed this post...your cake sounds wonderful...any left? crumbs?
I have been surprised about blogging...my friends and relatives say they "read" my blog but almost never leave a comment? They could easily leave an anon. message but instead I depend on kindness of strangers! ha

Hi Mary Ann, yes, I miss posts also or read several in a row, sometimes over. I even read my own! Maybe it takes a special type of person or commitment to participate in the blog enterprise. I do value the exchange and find the "strangers" are some of my favorite people.
