A Lemony Loss For Words (Or Not!)
I’m at a loss for words.
It could be because my in-laws left yesterday and after a week of talking their ears off I don’t have much left to say.
Or, it could be because J was up crying at 4:18am today and *nobody* in the house managed to get back to sleep. (I’m sooo tired.)
Or, it could be because I’m still reveling in the memory of last week’s episode of Real Time with Bill Maher featuring two of my fave podcasters, Marc Maron and Dan Savage. (We watched it from PVR last night, thinking, laughing and smirking along with all of them. So good. Here’s a little clip.)
Or, it could be because I know I’m not ready to begin the series Learning from Strangers in the Grocery Store that I promised you last week. (Let’s just say there have been some recipe development issues.)
How about I promise that again for next week and this week I send you to a different post about the kindness of strangers, called When Life Gives You Lemons. It’s one of my first ever posts. I apologize for the, erm, opposite of a loss for words.
If you can wade through it all you’ll find a simple and refreshing recipe for Citron Pressé to help you get through the current heat wave. And if you want to completely forget that you’re in the middle of a heat wave,go ahead and add some gin (if only I wasn’t 24 weeks pregnant!).
In the lemon story I discuss the disgusting nature of the lemons on my very own lemon tree. This spring we fertilized really well and we’ve been watering like crazy. We have great hopes for the three green goddesses that have appeared. Fingers crossed for some citrussy sunshine rather than their usual piney bitterness.
I just realized that even though I have nothing to say, it still took me nearly 300 words to say it. Maybe my writing hasn’t changed at all in the past year. Yikes!
