Yesterday marked the 18th anniversary of this blog! I've even categorized this post under "Weblogs" for old time's sake.
As you can easily see, I don't write here much anymore, but I keep it active so I can always find my favorite recipes and look up how old my pets are. Sometimes I read back through old posts just to appreciate the person I was when I wrote them.
In the early days, I wrote a blog post almost every weekday as a warmup for going to work and writing. My current job involves writing all day, but today I lack the energy for that much extra composition.
My primary social media hangout these days is Twitter and I can assure you that what I write there is fully as mundane as the posts that longtime Average Jane readers expect. Except now I sometimes post my Wordle scores as well.
To mark this point in time, I'm sitting in my living room with Dottie the chihuahua on my lap, Trillian to my left, Moose running around the living room, Xena and Dr. Jones sleeping on my bed, and Kaylee upstairs in the studio waiting for me to start work.
I've been working in my comfortable home office since March 2020 and expect to continue that indefinitely at this job because most of my colleagues work in other cities anyway.
It feels like I'm home all the time, but I did spend more than a week in Costa Rica this January at a yoga retreat and I traveled to Denver that same month for a beautiful wedding.
My coffee is ready, so I'll wrap this up. It's time for me to put some red beans in the crockpot with aromatics so I can make red beans and rice for dinner. Then I need to fix breakfast and start work in an hour or so.
Thanks for stopping by!
