It’s Sunday.

And it’s grey outside.

And, yesterday, my blog almost died a slow and lonely death in the cyber-abyss.

I don’t know what happened, but someone, somewhere, decided that my innocent, I-like-to-pick-dandelions-whist-prancing-through-the-grass, site was deserving of Katniss-esque hacker-arrow accuracy.

Still with me?

Ohh, you’re good.

Sooo, bottom line: my blog almost died that day, my friend.

Good thing that I have an IT expert in-house. After countless hours of frustrating confusion, computer work, phone calls, and CPR, my blog is back and stronger than ever. Anthony has that kind of effect on people.

Cleaned-up and safe-guarded, my wee blog-child is back, limbered up, and back in prancing form.

Phew. Crisis averted. Because I don’t know the first thing about planning a blog-funeral.

But did I mention that it’s Sunday and that it’s dreary outside? And that I experienced emotional turmoil yesterday?

Enter: Baked Potato Breakfast Bowls.

Comfort at its finest.
