I fell asleep at my desk just now, hands waiting for inspiration for today's blog. It was the psychic exhaustion, I think, of a very tough week, which followed a long hard few months. I'm so worn out, even though for once I'm sleeping plenty. Can't wait to go South Carolina in a few days, where I'll eat at Wade's, see the Gibbs Gardens in north Georgia, drive around in the mountains of western North Carolina, & be with people who love me. Not that people don't love me here but love AND Southern cooking AND the Smokies: hey yeah.
