My baby boy Roy is sick......he has kennel cough,  and would prefer that I not take his picture right now.
He started with the cough, sounding like a kid with whooping cough.  So off to the vet he went.
The medicine is helping, but we have to keep him kind of quiet.  Short walks.  No running.
He is not happy with this plan.

I got it in my head that I wanted to make some pickles this summer, like I haven't done in years.
Last week 14 day sweet pickles, this week, Winter Salad.

DH said, "you make some weird stuff."

It's delicious, let me tell you.

I will post recipes for both of them under the RECIPE tab.

My friend was visiting from Georgia recently........I was admiring her handbag.  Leather, with straps that you can use like a backpack.   She paid $140 for hers, on sale.  I was in need of a new bag.

I found one like it, in a different color, on Ebay.  NEW, never used.
Don't you love a good deal????

I am still weaving off the 8/2 cotton warp on the AVL.
I did find  the paper that I wrote out on the day we warped it, and now I know that I put 30 yards on it.
I better get weaving.

Hope Roy gets feeling better real soon. A dog I had a few years ago came down with it, but she recovered quite quickly.

Feel better, sweet Roy.

Good for you on that bag. Hope your sweet little pup feels better soon. He looks so forlorn.

Linda said...

hoping sweet Roy is back to himself quickly

Thanks for the recipes and how the heck did Roy get kennel cough? I thought they only get that when staying ina kennel. Clearly I need to do more research. What an adorable photo of him, though.. they wear their emotions so clearly, don't they?

Poor little guy! Hope he gets better quickly. And thanks for the recipes! That Winter Salad sounds delicious.

I feel SO bad for your baby doggie, Roy. He looks so miserable and with his feeties tucked in, I just want to take him in my arms. Hope he is doing better.
I have never heard of Winter salad but am very interested. What does it taste like? is it crunchy ? What do you serve with it? Or what does it go well with, I mean. And a preparation question, after you pour in the boiling water and half cup of salt you let it sit over night…do you rinse the next day before the next step? And final do the jars seal?
