Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy and Arty this week for Nature Friday~

Mom bought me a new collar with checkered pumpkins!

We are seeing more and more beautiful autumn leaves~

These mushrooms are well camouflaged~
Oh no.   Our friend tells us that the owners drive by their house many times a day looking for their dog.  Paws and fingers are crossed that she is found.

Mom took a picture of this guy on Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday, he was still hanging around in exactly the same place!  Mom took the trash can out and he rode up the garage door and back down and he still stayed in place!

 
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy and Arty this week for Nature Friday~

Last weekend, mom picked bittersweet berries that weren't open yet and brought them inside.  Sunday was a cool day and the heat came on in our house.   Mom put the tray of bittersweet on the radiator as it was cooling down.  The next morning, the berries had all popped open!

Mom loves decorating with these festive berries~
We changed up our walk one day this week and found these beautiful purple aster bunches in bloom!
We spotted chickens in this lady's front yard☺
This plant looks like it has snow all over it!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!

Love ya lots♥

Terrific and Tasty Tuesday

 Mom got this book in the mail a few days ago.  She smiles a lot while she's reading and if she's not smiling, she's laughing out loud and then she looks at me and tells me that Doris and I could be twinsies!

Mom is only a quarter of the way through the book and she already knows that she never wants it to end!

Yesterday, she had an appointment with the dentist.  She stressed about it all weekend as she's never had to have dental work on both side of her mouth at once, which means nasty numbing novacaine needles but it actually wasn't as bad as she thought it was going to be.   When she got home she made another batch of stewed apples and an English muffin bread, which we've never made before.
There is nothing better than warm bread out of the oven slathered in butter, right?   This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Happy Tuesday!

Love ya lots♥

Nature Friday

 We are joining Rosy and Arty this week for Nature Friday~

The poison ivy leaves in their autumn colors are so pretty this time of year~

People confuse poison ivy with virginia creeper.   Virginia creeper has five leaves where poison ivy only has three.
Mr Mike's dahlias are still blooming away~
The mullein is so big and the leaves are furry and soft.
Should I be afraid?!

Happy Friday, everybuddy!

In Purrsuit of Flavors - October Stew

 This month Phenny and Nelly are making stew~

Mom has just made a huge pot of soup so a main course stew wasn't going to work for us.  Seeing as autumn is all about apples, we wondered if there wasn't an apple stew.    Apples work just as well for me as beef or chicken, mom!
We peeled and seeded and chopped 5 macoun apples because that's what we had.  We added 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of apple cider, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1/8 teaspoon of salt.   Who doesn't love the wonderful aroma of freshly grated nutmeg?!
We combined all of the above ingredients.  We covered the pan and cooked it over medium-low heat for about 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
Let it sit for 5 minutes and you're ready to eat the apple stew!
It looks so yummy and it smells even better!
I'm goin' in!
This recipe is a keeper for sure!   Mom thought that it was going to be more like an apple sauce but it's more juicy and more spicy!  It's beyond wonderful!
We're off to see the stews that everyone else is making.

Love ya lots♥
