6/13/10: The Dangers of a Laundry Line
As for me, I'm still not getting around much yet, though I did finally make it outside and down to the barn the other day—and even without my walker. Yay. Then yesterday I went and overdid it puttering around for a few hours, and the swelling in my foot and ankle still haven't gone back down. It's also amazing (and sad) how sore just hanging three loads of laundry on the clothesline can make you after basically spending the past two and a half weeks in bed—though it sure felt good to see it all up there swaying in the breeze.
And while I may still be mostly shackbound, I have been spotted a few other places lately:
I'm on Twitter—sort of. Since I'm always behind replying to e-mail and blog comments (thanks for your patience!), tweeting isn't a good idea for me. But for the last several months I've been announcing each new blog post on Twitter—mostly on time, though sometimes I still forget to do it. You'll find Farmgirl Fare on Twitter here, and In My Kitchen Garden here.
I'm on flickr. A while back I started uploading all of my blog post photos through flickr, and it's been working out really well. I'm Farmgirl Susan on flickr, and you can find my photostream here. Right now I only upload photos that appear on blog posts (440 so far), but they're organized into sets—Chickens, Farm Cats, Crazy Daisy, Heart Rocks, Haying Season, Lambing Season 2010, My Hunky Farmguy, etc.—so it's easy to find more of my photos of subjects that you like. Each photo also includes a direct link to the Farmgirl Fare or In My Kitchen Garden blog post where it's featured.
If you're already at Farmgirl Fare or In My Kitchen Garden and are trying to find more about a subject, check the bottom of any post for labels that will link to more posts in that category; for example, this post is labeled Daily Dose of Cute 17, Sarah Kit Kat Kate, and Cat Photos 3. That google search bar in the upper right corner on every page of each site is also really handy. I use it all the time.
Want to flickr with me? I've been thinking it would be fun to create some sort of Farmgirl Fare related flickr group where readers could share their own photos, but I'm not exactly sure what the theme(s) should be. Anybody have any ideas?
Welcome House Beautiful visitors! I was tickled when asked to be included in the 'Send Us a Picture of. . .' column for the June 2010 issue of House Beautiful magazine. The theme was favorite summer garden photos, and I submitted a picture of my tomatillo plants taken last year because I love how the dozens of papery husks look like little party lanterns.
Hello Kroger shoppers! I've already heard from some very nice people who found me through a story in a recent issue of the Kroger supermarket chain's instore magazine that featured some of my simple tips for preserving the season's bounty, along with my favorite low fat, full flavor basil pesto recipe that features fresh tomatoes and almonds, freezes beautifully, and tastes amazing when made with purple basil.
© 2010 FarmgirlFare.com, the mighty huntress foodie farm blog where this morning while Joe and I were sitting in the living room, Sarah Kate popped up through the cat door (this would be a small window five feet off the ground outside where the cats have knocked out the screen so they can come and go as they please), circled the living room yowling like a cat does when they've just caught something, realized there were too many other cats already in the living room, and before we could see anything except a couple of tiny legs dangling from her mouth, leaped back out the window and disappeared. This place cracks me up.
