|It's looking a lot like Halloween!|
If it's Thursday, it's time for the I Like list, so lets dive in shall we?
|Adult trick or treat|
We went from 80's to 2F and had about 8" of snow this week. It did not
put out the wildfires but slowed them enough to see the sky for several
days, which includes sun to melt the snow a little.

I made chocolate chip oatmeal sugar cookies this weekend, from my Gasparilla cookbook.
They are tried and true.... until you try to bake them in high altitude. We tried different temps and times and suffered through eating them fresh from the oven on each attempt. We stored them in tupperwear and they were too hard to bite into the next day. I put a wet paper towel in the container overnight and they softened enough to eat.
I also discovered, sorry no pics, that you can use leftover breaded chicken strips to make a chicken parm. Small baking dish, chicken, tomato pasta sauce, mozzarella cheese, parm cheese, heat in the oven til it's hot and serve over angel hair. Fast easy and delish.

I discovered a new -to- me show on netflix... Emily in Paris. Kind of modern show of a young 20 something who wears fab clothes, and enjoys learning the new culture of France while working in advertising. It's a scripted comedy.
Dancing with the stars sent home one of my faves but still there is Johnny Weir and Nev Shulman.
bachelorette... oy vey... this eejit came to the show after already getting to know one of the guys before hand so she's wasted everyone's time since she decided on him before it even started. They are replacing her with a woman I do enjoy from the previous season... smart and funny so hopefully it will give me some viewing pleasure.
Amazing Race... simply awesome to watch especially when we're stuck in one place
I LOVE jigsaw puzzles... here's a fall leaf puzzle
can you tell I'm tired of people hating other people? I am... bone tired of it. This soothed my weary spirit this week:
just in case it doesn't play
Here's hoping enough people are also tired of it, and want us to become "united" states again.
I love my friend Sonja in Hawaii... we are sympatico and she sent me the link to youtube series called Green Renaissance with heart warming stories of real people. We are all important, and all should be respected. We NEED each other.
Put on a mask for the common good... the death of so many Americans a day and the constant threat of it has worn me down.
(only one ear left??? but trying to wear a mask)
|Me defrosting after a snow-scursion this week|
Milo here to inform and entertain! Yep, it's aaaallllll up to the poodle!
well after the snows came and went my pawrents got the stupid idea to give me a bath and cut my hairs. Well you can bet I put up a stink!
Mama: yes, you sure stink!
Daddy: it was awful
Milo: hey! what's a little peepee on the legs matter? Is that worth touching my feet with a shaver?
I'm SURE the snow melted it off!
anyway....now I smell like soap!
watch me play here...
