An outrageously late update...

Well folks, I don't know what to tell you. Frankly, time has just taken us by the hand, blinked and it has now been over 5 months since our last post. What the heck is with that?

First, everything is quite well. Yes, we have moved again... twice in fact. No, no... not what you are thinking - we just shuffled down the street to a new apartment complex. One move was to get us in, the other a month later was to get us into the apartment we have now. Why? Because we wanted this.

Yes, that is our view outside the windows in the living room. Unbelievable (that would be the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, by the way)! Not only that, our utility bills are no longer upwards of $450/month. You heard that right! We had an electric bill (only electric!) of that much for 1 month - it was a loft apartment, apparently had no insulation and the ridiculously small heater (set to only 60 degrees mind you) would run almost 24/7. Ugh. Oh well, you live and learn I guess!

This was one of our latest sunsets. Breathtaking!

It isn't a giant place by any stretch of the imagination, but it has a great flow and we're set for the next 10 months. Phew!

Meanwhile, in between packing, moving and exploring all the nooks and crannies of the bay area, I've been keeping myself busy in the kitchen. Here's just a snapshot of some of the goodies we've done lately.

I wish I could give a concrete answer as to whether or not we'll turn this blog around and get back into posting on some sort of a regular schedule, but to be truthful, I'm simply not sure. I can tell you that I miss it!
