Question Of The Week, January 26, 2015

Have you known (do you know) any dangerous gossipers?
(Have you ever been hurt by malicious gossip?)
It all starts with a listen.

Here are the photos from a wonderful family weekend.  My grandson was the focus of the visit because he is off to the Navy next week. And yes, we were too involved with soaking up our time with him to take any pictures. I hate it when that happens.

Where do you go to get on your computer?
First to my computer, then to my Kindle to watch movies while I ride my exercise bike:)

I had never heard of hedgehogs as family pets.  My soon-to-be 43 year old daughter is getting a hedgehog for her upcoming birthday.  It is almost certain that her daughter who is 12 will assume ownership of this pet right away. Evidentally these cute little critters make great family pets. Do you know anyone who has a hedgehog for a pet? Theirs is already named Mrs Tiggy Winkle and they will call her Winkie.
Talk about a fun tub toy!  Hedgehogs like to swim.
Isn't that a cute little bundle!

Do you have the app "DRAW SOMETHING" on your cell phone? It is a free app and I absolutely love it. Here are a few of my favorite drawings that I felt a little proud of. My friends and family members who play this game absolutely astound me with their talent. If you don't play, you should give it a try. Now you know why I am so preoccupied with doodling on my blog posts:)

Lynn at Good Things Happened has talked about about avocado toast.  I am cooking everything these days on my waffle iron.  Seemed like a good time to copy her idea and make my own low calorie, healthy avocado toast breakfast on my waffle iron.  It was crispy, crunchy and delicious.
Select traditional olive oil.
Spray butter Pam and prepare toast for flavor.
Get the avocados ready with favorite creole seasoning.
Cook toast in waffle iron to crispy brown.
Spread seasoned avocado and enjoy crisp and crunchy taste treat.
Another favorite waffle iron treat is my own invention Annie's All American Waffle Toast.  Scramble and egg and add milk.  Break a piece of wheat bread into the mixture.  Pour onto heated and treated waffle iron and cook for 3 minutes.  Sprinkle powdered sugar or serve with  margarine and low calorie maple syrup.  It is like scrambled French toast. 

I am having a lot of fun cooking on my waffle iron and there are a lot of web sites devoted to recipes for cooking this way. You can use tortillas and cheese and lots of different mixtures.  I am thinking about ordering this book  Will It Waffle.  Do you ever cook things besides waffles on your waffle iron?

My freezer door was left open and some things thawed a bit.  Reading about such an occurrence I learned that most food will be alright but fish should be discarded for the sake of safety. This meant a package of salmon was going to the cats. 

I took one unopened packet of the salmon out to their dinner table, cut it open and quickly broke it into six pieces.  Each cat grabbed a piece and it was obvious they loved it a lot.  I could not wait to give them this treat again the next day.

Instead of opening the packet at their dinner table, I cut the packet open in the house and put it in a paper bowl with six pieces already cut up for them.  Little did I anticipate the aroma reaching them before I got there.  Suddenly I had six cats climbing me like a tree and clinging to be as they fought for the salmon.  I dropped the bowl and ran for my life.  

There is more salmon but it is going to be a while before we try this again.

Forgive me but I am on a doodle kick and had fun illustrating this cat attack.

Question Of The Week January 5, 2015

Did you ever dance in the rain?

I wasn't dancing but I ran through the rain
to get my baby chicks to follow me to the safety
of their pen in a downpour.  It was a sight to behold.....
I was told:)
