Look at us! We are making a mess! A friend in the ward is redoing the electrical in our basement. We have beautiful new lights throughout and switches in logical places. We also finally emptied out the rafters too! Old dusty wood scraps be gone! Any one out there want any? Can't wait for neighborhood cleanup! Next up is dry wall.

Salad love

I am totally in love with this salad these days! I am sad for Bret that he is not a fan but happy to have it all for myself. This is actually my second batch I love it so much. 

3 shredded carrots
1/2 head of shredded napa cabbage (I will have to try regular next time to see if it is just as good.)
1/2 c raisins
1 lemon's juice
2 Tbs sesame seeds
Touch of sesame oil if you dare.

Pink flowers

I don't know the type of plant this is but I love how every February it blossoms. I was given one as a gift when my father died from the English department at work, but it quickly died. The next year my friend gave me this one for my birthday and I am proud to say it is thriving. I love it. I wish the pink showed better but such is the cell phone camera. 


Yes I have become one if THOSE pet owners. If I were a face booker people would block me. don't worry, I only have him a couple more days. I just had to share another sleep photo. He snores. Not as loudly as my husband used to, but in a cute way. I hear he is on the heavy side for a shih tzu. 

Chocolate pudding for breakfast

WOW! I am living this! 1/4 c Chia seeds, 3 tbl cocoa powder, banana (1 mashed and 1 as topping), 1 cup soy milk, 2 tbl maple syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/3 c oatmeal, and leave in fridge over night. Breakfast for two! Or one if you don't like to share. I think I will use more oats next time.

Tired Twix

After a rousing game of catch he just wants his belly rubbed. He got a new owner today. She paid for him but will pick him up Friday afternoon. They had a play date today. I enjoyed the freedom of a few hours. I love his new owner. She is perfect.  But I will miss his cute face in the morning begging for a walk with his little excited dance.
