Happy Sunday to you, friends.

I didn’t blog much this week.  Early in the week I didn’t have power. Later in the week I didn’t have the time.  Now that I have my own consulting business, I don’t get paid “sick” or “weather” days.  I either work and get paid or I don’t work and I don’t get paid. Since I was unable to do my job early in the week, I packed in lots of hours later in the week.  In addition to the superstorm this week, Dave and I are now three weeks away from our cross-country move to Colorado (he shared his thoughts on our move this week) and Ginny and I are six weeks away from turning in the book manuscript.

I am trying to say that the next several weeks are going to be pretty hectic.  I have decided to give myself a bit of a break and plan to blog a wee bit less.  I hope to share one or two posts a week and to touch base on the weekend with vegan news from the week.  I hope you understand.

Since I won’t be sharing as many text- and/or photo-heavy posts in November, considering joining me on Facebook.  It’s so easy for me to snap a quick photo of a meal and share it. Like this salad

featuring roasted grapes.  I also recently shared a photo of boots that I purchased and a conversation ensued about the appropriateness of compassionate clothing that looks like it is made from animals.  I would love to have you participate in these conversations – just follow me on Facebook. Of course, I’m still on Twitter, too.

My point is that I’m around, in a variety of places, and I look forward to continuing to talk to you about my vegan journey and your vegan journey here on the blog and elsewhere. Now, after a month of sharing Vegan MoFo posts and KALE recipes on Sundays, I’m back to sharing vegan links and news!

Stop Chasing Skinny

I’m here! What’s missing is YOU!  Have you stopped chasing skinny? Submit your story today!

This week I’ll share some of the meals I’m making while trying to clear out my cupboards and pantry before the move!

  • Great vegan news roundup and totally understandable about not blogging as much when things get crazy, looks like you have a lot on your plate for the next few months! So exciting and I hope everything goes smoothly!

    • JL

      Thanks so much, Christine!

  • It definitely sounds like you have a busy stretch ahead – all the best with it and I hope the move goes smoothly! Those links are great too, thank you – I’m looking forward to reading the running one 🙂
