Good Things

Fresh Homemade Thing:

Blueberry Bread Pudding

Blueberry bread pudding, made with a basic microwave bread pudding recipe. With all the bread I bake these days, we cut the heel ends of the loaves in cubes and keep them in the freezer for bread pudding. Blueberries went on sale at a very good price this past week. I simply mixed about 3/4 of a pint of fresh blueberries with the bread, then added the custard mix and baked in the microwave as usual. It came out very well.

Happy Melted Rattie Thing:

Happy Lola

Lola is getting older – about 1 year and 4 months now – and has a greater appreciation for simply snuggling on your lap. This is nearly impossible for me to capture in a photo, usually, because snuggling for Lola involves getting cradled close to your body by one hand, while you stroke her endlessly with the other. Since I’m most often snuggling with her when Gryphon is at work – well, you see the problem.

I was lucky yesterday that she decided to snuggle with Daddy while he was home before work, then. As you can see, when she gets into it, she fairly completely melts in complete and utter enjoyment of the experience. Happy Rattie!

What good things are you enjoying this summer?

That blueberry bread pudding looks delicious!!! And Lola looks completely happy. Nice. I’ve been loving the weather, hot and dry during the day and cool at night. YAY!

Relaxing with the furries is a great way to pass time. My “problem” is that when the kitties curl up on my lap, I often get lulled into an unexpected nap. The hubby says kitties spread sleep hormones 🙂

I also enjoy watching my tomato plants grow and sitting outside with a good book. But only if there is a bit of a breeze to chase away the bugs….

i am currently flippin gthrough a couple of books about how to spin. hopefully, I will improve with a bit of practice. So I am enjoying that too,,,,

Lola looks pretty darn ecstatic. In a “ahhhh” way. Our girl is mellowing out? Who knew?
