I’ve been playing hooky here for the past month or so, and in the meantime, I’ve been working on something new. I’m a stepmom, and the kids’ mom and I decided to start a blog with stories about our experiences and ideas and tips about raising kids in two houses.

It’s called The Doughtie Houses Exchange, which was originally the name we gave the envelopes we’d give the kids to put in their backpacks and deliver to the other house. (Don’t worry — this wasn’t — and isn’t — our only method of communication. We also talk on the phone and email constantly.) But our kid-mail system was symbolic for both of us of how we try to cooperate between houses — how we make sure the other house has copies of all the important papers, for starters. So we named our blog after it. I’m very excited about where this might go. I hope to see you there: http://thedhx.com.

And now that it’s launched, I promise to be here more, too.

I met Tableau Vivante this weekend at the farmers’ market. We were the same booth, she had a camera around her neck and was talking about photography with the vendor. Could this be the mysterious Tableau Vivante?!?I wondered. It was! I got to meet the woman responsible for introducing me to apriums. She covers the Pasadena Saturday farmers’ market with photos, descriptions, and recipe ideas at http://tableauvivante.livejournal.com/.

This weekend was the First Quarterly Pasadena Bloggers’ Picnic. Gavin and I visited with old friends and we met new friends who we had only known online before yesterday.

Even worse, I was so intent on photographing the cupcakes that my friend Erin from erin’s kitchen brought that I forgot to take a picture of her.

In lieu of a picnic photo, here is a picture of me and Erin at a conference we went to together last year:

Update 6/20/07: Pasadena Pundit was previously pictured here, too. He elected to move in a fewer photos of himself on the internet direction, so I removed his picture at his request.
