Yoo hoo! It's me ... over here ... yes, you aren't imaging things, I am actually posting to my blog!

First off, thank you to everyone who has continued to think of me and send their best wishes to me during this difficult time. I so appreciate your care and friendship, it buoys my sagging spirit to no end.

For the longest time I was too sad to post and too busy to post and now that life is beginning to weigh a teeny tiny bit less heavy on me, I'm not sure what to write. At all.

I guess the first order of business is to explain my post title, huh?!

I have been in the doldrums of late over our remodel project of my dad's house - the road has been bumpy and long and fraught with missteps. Our contractor is a nincompoop par excellence and his less than great workmanship has brought me to tears several times. WAH!

Anyway, so EGBOK came into my mind yesterday. It was a promotional tag line for a radio program here in Los Angeles many years ago and it means "Everything's gonna be OK" - a motto and reminder I need to tape to my mirror and everywhere else these days and take to heart.

Origin of EGBOK

My second (equally odd) choice teehee was TOAS-TITE. Has anyone else ever had a Toas-tite?

My mother made us Toas-tite sandwiches when I was little - white bread and Velveeta bwahhahhaha, placed in the Toas-tite on the stove. I thought they were the yummiest sandwiches in the whole world.

Well I found my mom's Toas-tite, obviously very much used and so far, even though it's so sorrowful to look it, I can't seem to let go of it.

(geez, it looks like my mom never cleaned the thing, doesn't it?!)

I found a site about it (well of course! is there anything left out there that hasn't been written about on the internet?!):

I'm taking photos of all the things that were dear to me but have no room for in my tiny, already busting at the seams house. First up, cooking utensils for my vintage-loving friends.

AND, I have come down with a hefty Pinterest addiction bwahhahhaha. I've found a few of you, my blogging friends, out there, pinning too - so nice to see familiar names and faces.

Please leave your Pinterest address so I can visit you if you feel like it!

Looking forward to hearing what you've been up to!
