THANK GOD FOR GEEKS

One just fixed my e-mail-remotely.

It took him 20 minutes.

That’s hours in human time.

AKISMET

When I go to my Dashboard and Akismet tells me that something is spam-I don’t even look at it. I just delete it because so far they have never been wrong. And it saves me that, “My eyes! My eyes!” reaction. Call me naive but there are some things that I just don’t need to see. Thanks Akismet!

NEW DOG FOOD RECIPE

I like to make my own dog food. I think it is healthier (for them) and more economical (for me).

IMG_0364_2

PROTEIN-40%

Chicken thighs

Lean roast beef-little bit of leftovers

P-Nut Butter

VEGETABLES-30%

Carrots

Green beans

Fresh Spinach

Parsley-(helps Little-Bits tummy)

Mint-“

STARCH-30%

Yams-(no sugar or salt)

White rice-(had to add because it was so gooey)

TO MAKE-

Cook chicken in olive oil.

Cut into small pieces.

Cook vegetables in chicken stock. Drain.

Mix chicken and vegetables with yams and p-nut butter.

Cook rice with stock and saved vegetable water from fridge.

Mix everything together and cool in the fridge.

Put in snack sized Zip-Locks and freeze.

Made about a week’s worth. And the boneless, skinless chicken thighs were only $1.00 a pound. Yea!

GOALS-

My goal for next batch is to try the brown or wild rice again and see if it still affects Little-Bits tummy.

I also want to try tomato to see if we have any allergies. Since I cook with tomatoes so much, it would be easier and I think they are very healthy. There is a bit of debate about this for dogs, though, so I am not so sure.

I also want to see if I can find a better freezer process, although the snack sized bag is perfect for one dog for one day with a little fresh food mixed in. Also, and this is no small matter, the bags stack perfectly in the freezer drawer of my fridge.

MOTHER’S DAY LILIES

img_0286

and more to come!

By the way, this yellow pollen does NOT come out of your clothes or tablecloths. So if you are cutting your lilies, turn them upside down over the garbage can and remove the stamens. I used to “field dress” my lilies but now the dogs investigate and it does not wash out of fur, either. 🙂

THE GREAT ESCAPE

THEY BROKE OUT OF THEIR AREA AND INTO MINE!

img_02541

LITTLE-BIT MADE HERSELF AT HOME

img_0257on my velvet bedspread!

AND THEN I HAD TO CATCH HER

img_0260

My Cotons live in a large, tiled area that is the size of my first apartment. They are allowed to come with us to the rest of the house -except for my bedroom. I just wanted one area that was an island of serenity and cleanliness. Fur-free, so to speak.

The problem started when I decided to take a nap. God forbid.

They whined and cried at the doggy gate and then decided to body slam the double doors into the dining room. Since they had done that before, there were rubber bands wrapped around the handles. “No hill for a stepper.” as Himself says. BAM! The doors slammed into the walls. Patter, patter, patter of happy little feet headed my way.

I sat up drowsily to see to fuzzy, white, bouncing balls trying to leap up onto my high bed. I jumped up yelling, “Sit! Stay!” but not before grabbing my cell to take pictures because they are just so darn cute. B.B., for the first time in her life, sat and stayed. She tilted her head and looked at me as if to say, “This is gonna be good.”

Little-Bit scratched my bedspread, circled and made a little nest for herself. It seemed as if she was laughing at me as I chased her around the room and she kept going back to her nest like it was home base.

Finally, I was able to catch her with her head stuck under the bed and her butt stuck up in the air. Her tail was wagging away like a plume of white feathers. She thought that if she couldn’t see me then I couldn’t see her.

The funny thing is that she used to be able to wiggle under that bed. Not any more…
