In Purrsuit of Flavours on Tasty Tuesday

We missed In Purrsuit of Flavors last week so we are posting it here today.  This month they were focusing on light summer dinners.
Mom does light summer dinners a LOT this time of year.  She refuses to use the oven and heat up the house unnecessarily.   
Yes mam - I do love my cucs!
 This is just a salad with all of mom's favorites - cucs and cherry tomatoes and blue cheese and kalamata olives.  She shakes balsamic vinegar over it.  It's that simple.
 We have two easy peasy summer dishes for you today. 
I do love me a huge stalk of celery!    Sorry the photo is blurry.  I was rather excited☺
 Cut an avocado in half and spoon out all of the yumminess into a bowl.   Add two hard boiled eggs and a stalk of chopped celery and chop and mix it all together.  Add a wee bit of mayo, some salt and pepper and scoop the mixture back into the avocado shell.   Easy peasy, right!
Have a terrific Tuesday!

Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

We are joining Rosy for Nature Friday this week and we are very happy to be doing so.   That nasty tropical storm stole our power for two days and we were living like we were back in the 1800's so we're very glad to be back.

We were hoping to skirt the new blogger format but nope........   If anything looks different with our post - that's the reason.   Mom doesn't want to cave and give into the legacy format.  She knows it's just a matter of time that they will delete that too.  

Walkies haven't been happening a whole lot lately and mom decided that I needed a bath and groomies. 
The before~
  • And the after~

There are lots Chinese Lanterns in our garden.
Mom has been picking them daily~
We found Black-eye's Susans~
We found white Phlox~
We found pink phlox~
Mom has been searching for Chicory and there it was right in front of our mailbox!   She took her usual blurry picture.   She just cannot get a sharper photo for some reason. 
Happy Friday, everybuddy☺
Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

We are joining Arty today for Nature Friday~

It's a wee bit cooler this morning with a lot less bugs, thank goodness☺
 The Hostas are in bloom and we didn't have to go far to find this one.  It's in our back yard!
The bugs are loving our Coneflower petals.

 How come the bugs aren't eating theirs, mom?
The Magnolia tree in our back yard is blooming for a second time.  The first time, the flowers got nipped by frost.  
 We found this mushroom underneath our Copper Beech tree.   The prickly pods are falling once again and mom sweeps them away daily so they don't get stuck in my paws.
 The spiders have been busy~
 The Asiatic Dayflower is in bloom at the end of our driveway~
The tomatoes are ripening in Farmer Will's field.   These are plum tomatoes and there are lots and lots of them.  yummmmm
 Happy Friday, everybuddy!  Enjoy the last day of July!
Love ya lots♥

Tropical Tuesday

Our walkies have been cut short by the too-hot temps and the IRRITATING bugs that buzz all around our heads.  Mom has tried smelly essential oils and other stuffs but nothing works.  
I can't wait to get home and into my cool house and leave the bugs and the heat outside.
 Shortly afterwards comes my morning treat~
It doesn't keep me busy for long but it does make me happy☺
 Mom says all the time, "Thank goodness for puzzles and books when we don't want to be outside"!
We are staying cool and happy and hoping that everyone else is too.

Love ya lots♥

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream month?   There is no way this month could go by without me celebrating!
 Settling in here to enjoy my special treat~
 How can it be empty already?
 This is a catastrophe!
 July is not over yet.  I can celebrate again right, mom?
 Yes, mom.  I am smiling pretty for the camera☺
Who's joining me in celebrating National/International Ice Cream month!

Love ya lots♥
