Hi guys! I'm still here. It's been a wild couple of months but as of tonight I can start getting back to normal. My "special project" at work is done. I am the chief electoral officer for our town, a task I have done for the past 20 years. I thought I had seen it all until this election, which was held yesterday. I have NEVER been involved with anything like this one. It was the most vicious, controversial mess I've ever seen. At times it made the US presidential race seem like child's play. I was insulted, threatened and spit on. Many other staff were threatened as well. On top of this I was working day and night for weeks, including weekends. I'm exhausted but I survived and managed to come out unscathed. I may have worn out my "big girl panties" because I had to wear them a lot. Lol But we have a brand new Mayor and 5 new councillors so I'm hopeful the wounds created recently in town can heal. I arrived at work yesterday at 6:30am with my team and we didn't leave until midnight. I then had to pick up Abby at the neighbors, who graciously babysat her for the day. Today I've just tried to rest up a bit and regroup. Thanks to those of you who checked up on me. I'm baaaaaack 😄

Sometimes circumstances make us feel differently than we could have imagined. Case in point - you've rarely heard me say what I said multiple times today.........."Yay, it's raining!" And it's supposed to rain all weekend and I'm happy about it.

Yesterday we had an Artisans Market downtown. I planned to stay away because I am beyond broke and have no self control but a friend convinced me to go with her. I made 2 tiny purchases so that wasn't too bad. I could not resist the little pottery tea bag holder. Isn't it cute?

I'm still here although there hasn't been much happening. My Vermont company is still here and they are keeping me busy. 3 weeks down, 1 to go. I'm exhausted from it. I'm used to a quiet little life and although I love them it will be nice to get back to normal. We have been eating well with all the fresh farm vegetables out. I thought I'd share this, it's my favorite thing this time of year. It's really only good when the veggies are new and fresh - baby potatoes, baby carrots, fresh peas........yummmm
