here's a beautiful sunset for my sweetest sister Helga!
Sandy, Jane, PracticalP and lotta joy...i hope that you guys love it too!
is there anything better than comfort food? i think not. and comfort food for me is smashed potatoes and gravy and big chunks of roast on a piece of bread. oh and some kimchi. i loves me some kimchi!!! and gravy! i love gravy - i make mine from my own home-made beef stock! i loooooove gravy!
Noodie-noo is happy to have one leaf of catnip. then he goes down for the count!
Barley chews his leaf and always spits out the last little bit. notice the blank stare in his eyes...and the little piece of catnip leaf that he always spits out. yes, i am raising little addicts. but they love the nip...what can i do???
and i cultivate catnip to dry for tea for human consumption? have you ever had catnip tea? oh, it is delicious! and it will calm you down and help you sleep!
oh ya - more pics of bulgogi! i made another batch and this one i let go for 72 hours in the marinade. you really need to let it marinate for 72 hours to get the proper flavour! you also must include toasted sesame seeds in the marinade and a shredded Japanese pear. if you can't get a japanese pear, an apple makes a good substitute!
oh yes - we were down at the river all afternoon - look at the beautiful blue colour of the river! and that one cotton-ball cloud. we had a wonderful time reading our books! and talking about this, that and everything else. we love spending relaxing time together. we even fell asleep in the middle of a conversation - bahahahah! and the whole time we slept we held hands and kept a foot and a leg touching each other. oh we slept the sleep of angels!
here are the weeds and rocks that i like to play in!
here's me dog-paddling...i am a really good dog-paddler - like really good! i wish there was an olympic sport for dog-paddling becuz if there was - canada would definitely win the gold!!!
after a wonderful afternoon at the river, and a nap in the sun, we came home and made some chicken, mushroom, asparagus, brie and parmesan pasta - oh man was it good! we are so stuffed that it is time to climb on the couch and watch a movie on netflix. and then bed!
