Cooking with Mr. Blu

January 10, 2013 Leave a comment

Wherein he does the cooking…CookingWRobert

…and I drink the wine.

My wonderful husband is, for lack of better terminology, a hobby chef.  This means I weigh at least 1 1/2 stone more than I should.  I like talking about body weight in terms of “stones” because it doesn’t seem as much as “pounds”, makes me feel a little less guilty about going in for that 2nd slice of cake.  ;)

Tonight he’s creating something with chicken and Italian spices. These photos are actually from last night and that chicken right there has been marinating ever since.  I love it when he creates.  I will probably never lose this weight though, lol.

ETA 11JAN2013:  The incredibly delicious results….nom~nom~nom!

Goin’ for a drive!

There are few things in this world that Lucy loves better than “ball”.  One of them is going for a ride, which is serious business!  Wanna know how I know?  Take a look at her ears; see how they’re all plastered back and stuck to her head? We call those her “business ears” because whenever she’s wearing them like that, she means business!

However, since we have typical Oregon weather 11 months out of the year when it is more or less any one of 23 types of raining outside, we felt it was high time to get the girl some decent eye protection so she could stick her nose into the wind like a proper dog ought to be able to…even when the rain is pelting her in the face at 52 mph (which is about as fast as our 1994 Suburban gas-hog can run these days, lol).

Fortunately for Lucy, today is filled with sunshine.  Good thing her “doggles” are also sunglasses.  *heart*

Hello again.

So. How's it goin'?

Just testing something here…let’s see how badly technology can confound me. *grin*

ETA: Yeah! It worked!!! I have won the battle of “new-device” vs “old-human”! I feel strangely triumphant…and maybe a tad bit overconfident! Good times. Good times. ;)

Clearly Lucy has views about my abilities.  More likely she’s probably thinking “Would you stop with the damn camera already? Sheesh!” but how can I stop?  SHE’S SO FREAKING CUTE!  I mean just look at that face!  I just know she’s got views on politics.  It’s not all about Squirrel and Ball and Food. She’s got concerns man. SERIOUS. CON. CERNS.  Mostly centered around when her next trip to the park will be…but still, concerns.  Also, and you may not know this about Lucy, she is an intrepid snail-hunter (I will be subjecting you to a video proving this soon).

That’s all for now.  Seems my hiatus may be coming to an end.
