Coffee, Burgers, and Cookies

You know you live in a house with pets in it and when your friends have pets when you go to have your daily coffee and there are at least 2 pat hairs in it.  It’s like one lump or two.  You know that is extra fiber right?  LOL

I wasn’t doing to well  the past few days been a little um…clogged up in the pipes.  So I’m trying to drink extra water and liquid and less coffee.  In fact I even went for a decaf yesterday morning instead of a normal and only having one coffee instead of two.   But my birthday is coming up tomorrow and my dad, step mom (Rita) and my sister is coming out and we are going out for dinner at a great burger place that does gourmet burgers.  It’s called The Work.  You have choice of meat from ground beef to chicken to elk.  Then type of bun and type of burger.  They have over 50 choices to choose from such as burger with smoky bbq sauce with mushrooms and bacon or having Kraft Dinner on it.  They even do veggie burgers and a mushroom cap burger.   Lots and lots of choices.   I wasn’t sure if I should go there or not with my tummy troubles but I’ll just fill up on liquid today and a salad.  I put feta on my salad to add extra flavour and texture.

So with not sure what to do yesterday with my pipes not working I decided to make some cookies (like that was going to make it better).   What I ended up making was white chocolate with pecans and cashews.   They turned out good so I put a few aside for my family.  And I didn’t eat too much. And saved a few for today .



Apreciate Animals Day

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Your Festivus.”

Animal Day would be a non work day.   It would be a day for donating to animal organizations or volunteer time at animal shelters.  It’s about spending time with and appreciating the animal kingdom.  There would be special events at dog parks.  Vets would give discounts or do charitable work for those that can’t pay for certain medication or operations.   There would be free treats at pet stores and discounts on food and liter and leashes.  The zoo would be free to go to on Appreciate Animals Day.  You would spend special time with your pets furry or feathered or scaled.  You can order a special toy and treat package for your pets that you get in the mail a few days before the holiday.  There would be all kinds of animal stories and programs to watch on tv.   Some older theaters could put animal related movies on to play for the week or the day.  But while kids have the time off they will be expected to do projects or essays or write stories of animals to be graded.  There would be a Appreciate Animals Day web stie with all kinds of pet pictures would send in and also incredable pet hero stories.  Parks might host an event about pets to learn more about products or new items for pets and be a petting zoo and a dog petting ring that people can go into and pet all kinds of doggies.   The sounds so cool.   I wish it were real.   What a way to spend a day.  Oh and you can have pet shaped souvenirs or posters with animals, stationery with animals and decks of cards with animals and t-shirts, games, puzzles etc.  Whoo hoo.+
