Rain again.


Mom I need a playmate okay?



Astro I think you have enough toys.  




Our back yard has turned into a mud puddle.
Maybe next week we can do zoomies. 
                                           Astro loves this little bed, he likes to curl up
                                               in it every morning while I drink coffee.

Flower Friday



We are joining Miss Rosy for 

FLOWER FRIDAY.

Did you know Rosy, Arty, & Jakey  have a new blog?
You can find them HERE.


Remember last week when I showed you my Tulips?


Guess what? 

They bloomed!!!!!
Last week. Buds 








                                                       
                                                           I knew they would open.
                                                    Here's the secret to getting them to bloom.
                                                    You have to promise not to tell anyone!!!!!

                                          First you have to look close at the photo.
                                          Did you guess what they are planted in?
                                   Look again, maybe scroll back up to the first photo.
                                   It's a recycled plastic container. In it's former life it
                                   was a ice cream bucket. My dad drilled holes in the bottom.
                                     I want you to know everything is better with ice cream!
                                                 Don't worry me and dad ate the ice cream first.
                                           Mom has another one in a red container
                                                 can you guess what we recycled ?

                                                  Mom decided to use the plastic containers incase
                                                 she had to carry them into the shed if it snowed.

A little bit of sunshine.

OMD AND OMC

            Fur pals I got some hope, there will be a Spring this year!!!
             I been held-up in this big old house for too many weeks.

             Yeah I know what your thinking but running out in the rain
           to pee is not a thrill. Remember I hate the bath and the garden hose equally.

                 Today Aunt Cathy came over and we sang Happy Birthday old lady to her. bol!
           

Mommy made Chicken salad and shrimp,
I did not get one bite of anything.

Aunt Cathy opened her gifts.
Can you believe my Mom didn't give her a bag of treats?
Whats the deal with that Mom. 
Everyone likes treats on their bark day.

My mom is trying to show off her new stove.
She called it a glass flat top
I don't know why because she doesn't cook me anything.


Our Tulips might bloom tomorrow.

My dad said he better mow the grass 
before it starts raining again!!!!










Pals, I am pooped out,
it's been a busy day here 
behind the white picket fence.

Lavender Cookies


                              DISCLAIMER.

 I have no idea if Lavender is good or bad for dogs.


In yesterdays post I mentioned that I had baked Lavender cookies.
In 2004, my sister Cathy and I had a girls trip to Park City, Utah.
We went in all the shops while there. One quaint shop
had lavender cookies on the counter for guest.
I've been hooked sense then.

A few of you asked if I would share the recipe.

 






















 

Preheat oven to 375 F  ( 191 C )

     INGREDIENTS

1/2      cup butter room temperature

1         cup sugar

2         eggs

1/2      teaspoon vanilla extract

1         teaspoon dried lavender blossoms

1 1/2   cups all purpose flour

2         teaspoons baking powder


           In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

           Beat in the eggs, vanilla and lavender and mix well.

           Combine the flour and baking powder and add to the lavender mixture. Stir well.

          Drop by teaspoons into an ungreased baking sheet and bake 8 to 10 minutes
          or until lightly browned around the edges.  ( to drop I use a small melon baller )

           Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a minute or two before removing.
           Enjoy alone or with tea or ice cream.


  Note: I use Organic lavender flowers purchased at amazon.
I am not an Amazon affiliate and do not receive any compensation.





Enjoy......
Thanks for asking Princess Leah.

Spring Fever Time Change.




                OMD OMC The sun came out today here in Washington.
            We hope Spring is going to show up soon.
           It get's boring waiting for the rain to stop.
           Some times mom makes Lavender Cookies for her and I get none.
 























Don't tell my ma, but dad gave me a bite.
They are very good. I wanted more but he said no,
ma might find out then there will be trouble.


One day while I was sleeping,  I heard mom telling dad
that the bunnies, lambs & eggs were coming out of storage.
I just laughed cause we all know it's taken my ma six months
to unpack the garage. So there was a slight chance of any
bunnies showing up at our house and eggs well they are in the refrigerator!
Mom said you have to have a little hope

With Hope there is Faith

I see candy.... Wait I mean I see JOY.



Then there is happiness.
Ma finally caught me on camera.


Rain again.
