And I finally finished my latest cookbooklet.  When Life Hands You Lemons.  Been working on this one for months now.  It's the largest one yet, with over fifty pages.   You can find out more about it here, but it's all about cooking with Lemons.   Yum!   If you love the flavours of Lemon, then this one is for you.

A thought to carry with you through today  . . .

"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."
