As is usual around here, the roads were not as icy as expected, although there was a nice coating of ice on everything else. Wednesday was supposed to be warmer and sunny, but the clouds prevailed, and, with nighttime temperatures dipping, rural roads refroze and Wednesday evening activities were cancelled, too.
It's Friday evening, after a warmish sunny day, and I am at home again. In fact, this is my fifth straight evening at home. It's wonderful.

As much as I am committed to serving my community, I cannot do that as well as I expect if I do not take care of myself. Since I am an extreme introvert, that means planning adequate time for myself. I need it. I will burn out without it. I now give myself permission to do it.
That means I will need to either refuse some requests (like I would refuse any . . .), or find more efficient ways to accommodate them. From home, if at all possible.
While I've been home . . .
So, how did last week's link-laden post affect site traffic? It may have caused a tiny uptick, but Twitter and Pinterest seem to drive more hits. The quest continues . . .
And so I write on, shouting into the F5 tornado that is the Internet, trusting that you are reading.
Thank you so much.
How are you living your Savory life?
