In June 2004 I began describing my life as BC and AC. AC (after cancer) began here with my first post .
I began blogging on the 5th January 2005. At the time I was in the middle of chemotherapy. I had several reasons for blogging. Mostly to stay in contact with the world while I was confined to home.
My interest in food came when I was about 6. I read the story of Heidi, the little orphan girl in Switzerland. When Heidi's grandfather toasted a lump of cheese for her dinner I remember thinking how interesting it sounded. I needed to try it. Luckily we lived on a farm with an old wood fired stove. I cut off a chunk of cheese and toasted it over the coals. My first attempt at raclette .
I love walking on the beach, laying on my back in the pool looking up at the blue sky, picnics with friends, drinking wine, discovering new restaurants, listening to music in the candlelight. My travel is limited for the moment so I enjoy books, movies and documentaries about life in other cities and countries...and blogging.
I especially love the friends I have made through blogging.
