Fairy Tale.

Duchess of Cambridge

Daughter #1 told me that yesterday a little girl came into the shop and asked her if she was Princess Kate.

Spring Training.

'Tis the season for Spring Training.

Well, I don't know if it is for baseball but it is spring training for Sassy.

For being such a kind, gentle horse she has some naughty habits up her sleeve hooves when you put a saddle on her.

Her own personal limo horse trailer picked her up this morning complete with snacks and beverages.  Well, hay and water.  She told me she was very excited to have a trip planned especially for her.  Little does she know, it's going to be all work and no play for this gal.

Bye Sassy.  See you in a couple of weeks!

Sweet Saturday.

Since I started on my vegan path eight weeks ago but who's counting  my husband has been very supportive.  He agrees to eat vegan at home but reserves the right to order whatever he likes (MEAT!) when we dine out once a week on date night.

However, he does miss my baking.  A lot.  So after much weeping and wailing and  gnashing of teeth (by me) I endeavoured to find some yummy recipes for sweets.  I think I hit the jackpot.

Magical Coconut Cookie Bars

I used the recipe from this cookbook:

Small in stature but big in delicious recipes.
  Seriously.  Head over to amazon or your local bookstore and peruse through the photos and recipes and you will be surprised.  In a good way.

Peanut butter and chocolate. Seriously.
NYC Black and White Cookies

These squares were To.Die.For.

My husband is one happy man.

Spring Has Sprung.

Shh, Gentle Readers, we don't say spring has come too loudly around here.  First thing you know, we'll have another snowfall.

The crocus are blooming.

There is a little bit of snow in the pasture.

It's still a bit nippy for some of us in the mornings though.

Broken Item of the Week

Yes, Gentle Readers it has happened once again.

This is what I get for attempting to feed a cat in the middle of the night in the dark.

The Real Deal

Sassy would now like to get in on the action.

Please excuse the photo quality.  A professional cameraman I am not.

One of These Things is Not Like the Others...

I got a new camera a couple of months ago and I enjoy playing with it.  Please indulge me.


*That Millie.  After her fifteen minutes of fame she insists on having her picture taken all the time now.

Much Ado About Nothing

I have nothing new or exciting to talk about.  So I will talk about nothing.

I started walking 2kms a day several weeks ago.  It used to take me an hour.  Now it takes me 45 minutes.

I compiled a Special Walking Tunes list on my IPod.  This is the only time I use said IPod.

I got a replacement pan for my bread maker.  Now when I make a loaf of bread, it will come out in one piece.  I am That Excited about this.

It is foggy and rainy here today but that is a good thing.  It will make the S*&! disappear faster.

I am not going to say the S*%? word again until next winter.

In less than three months my hubby will retire. sob.sigh.groan.

He is very excited about this.  Can you tell?

I have no comment on the above statement.  I know, Janet you have no sympathy for me.

My Doctor gave me the results of some blood work I had done a couple of weeks ago.  I am in perfect health.  He tells me "Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it." 
This is what I'm doing.
