What a happy guy

I’ve had Runt featured on my sidebar for a while now.

I click on his picture every day hoping that he has found a home.

This morning when I clicked to check on him, it says that he’s

had his eye removed for something called microphthalmia

(eye abnormality).   He came to the shelter with another

dog named Bunny, he was her seeing eye dog.  I guess she’s

since been adopted.

Hoping this happy guy finds a forever home soon!  He pulls

at my heart strings….I suppose he reminds me of all of my

little stuffed orphan animals that I collect…tattered and

torn and just looking for love.

Not your everyday Ramen

I swore, after nuclear medicine school, I would never eat

Ramen again…..well, Kenny changed my mind last night.

He made this wonderful soup full of ramen, chicken, snow peas,

carrots, mushrooms and green onions…..

something he found on Pinterest and tweaked to his own likings.

You can find the inspiration recipe by clicking HERE.

Swimsuit season is coming up…..are you trying to change it up

and eat a little lighter to get ready for shorts and swimsuits?

We are expecting temperatures in the 70’s for most of

this week.

Hellebores are in full bloom….one of my favorite woodland

Daffodils are in varying modes of buds and blooms.

Kenny has been hard at work raking away the winter

so that spring may have an easier time emerging.

As you can see, the “cheater” wool strips that I blogged about

here just weren’t doing it for me.

I ended up sewing extra linen to the pattern.  It’s just

so much easier to hook on now.

Picking out the colors for the hit and miss, however, is not

as easy as it looks….I’ve decided to go with a plan….yes,

a plan….bright, dull, dark, light….it’s infuriating, but I must

carry on.
