we're moving!

Well, after a year of trying to sell our home in this almost nonexistent market, we finally did it, and managed to find our dream house back home for a price we can afford. Now, once all the paperwork is done and both houses close, we'll be on our way!

So, what with all of that, a recent three day stay in the hospital due to a raging kidney infection, this crazy tropical storm bringing all kinds of weather (though I should probably thank the universe for sparing both our locations thus far from anything truly damaging. may that hold true thru the end of it!), and three feral kittens who recently showed up at our doorstep (literally) that I'm trying to foster then find homes for (even though the Cap'n keeps calling one of them Seven, as in the seventh stray cat we take in. sigh), I think this blog may be on a bit of a hiatus. We hope to be fully moved by the end of September, so I'm thinking I'll make it back to the blogosphere by Halloween, for sure, complete with scary vegan treats and cute baby costume. Until then I hope I even find a moment to check out all of your blogs and if not, I know I'll have a ton of catching up to do!

For now, here's Taylor. Lately, she's been trying to talk like crazy and I've taught her to roar like a lion. too cute.
Thanks to everyone who always still checks in even though it's been a long while since I shared anything edible. It's nice to know you're all still there!

Congrats on selling your house and on the new place! That is so exciting! I am sorry to hear about the kidney infection, though--glad to hear you are okay.

I will look forward to your return--I have missed your posts! Good luck with the move. Moving is always so stressful...but it always feels so good to get settled!

Best of luck with the move! Glad it all finally worked out.

Oh how I wish I could hear little Taylor's roar. :-)

Yikes, the kidney infection sounds awful (been there before though:O)

congrats on the house(s). We've sold ours but haven't found one to buy so now we get to move twice! I'm glad it looks like it will work out for you.

Keep enjoying that adorable little baby!

So sorry I missed your IM the other day - and even more sorry about the kidney infection! Why do our urinary systems hate us so??

I'm so excited you guys are moving back to our old stomping ground and I can't wait to come visit!!
