A week ago, I wrote a post about how ready I was to get back to blogging and how there’d be new content coming your way soon! I had posts on the docket and time available and I was prepared to get back in the game.
And then I tried posting last week’s menu plan, and Windows Live Writer wouldn’t let me upload a photo. And then WordPress gave me the same error. So, I published the post without an image. A couple days later, still unable to solve the problem, I spent a couple hours in chat with my blog’s host, to no avail. Sunday night I did the same, with the conclusion that nothing could be done and I should check the WordPress forums. Awesome. Posting without pictures isn’t really an option. I posted to Reddit, seeking assistance. And today, I finally smartened up and emailed my friend Katy Widrick. In minutes, she’d sent me a link with the solution. I changed one simple setting in WordPress and suddenly I could add photos to my site again! Thanks Katy/Google!
So, I was all set to blog this evening. But before I could write, it was time to make dinner. Imagine my delight when I opened up my Homemade Enchilada recipe (link below!) only to find that there was no recipe on the page. Fantastic. After minutes of stress (and joy that that particular recipe is also in Evernote), a tweet to anyone who would listen, and a draft email to Katy, I noticed that my recipe plugin was deactivated. Why? I have no idea. But again, I changed one simple setting and all my recipes reappeared. Thank goodness!
So, that’s what I’ve been up to lately. Stay tuned for those posts I promised – maybe they’ll actually go up this week!
The Pick Up
bok choy, green garlic, Hakurei turnips, baby beets, radishes, lettuce, collard greens

PS – My laptop randomly shut down in the middle of writing this post. Apparently I’m not meant to blog this week. But if you’re reading this, I managed to post!
