Feeling So Pretty!

Katie was long overdue for a trimming and was thrilled when they let the groomers open back up.  MrsJ’s favorite had a new baby and has moved into a new shop and is just now ready for customers.
She followed best practices in this Covid conscious era. She had a cage outside the shop, the dog is placed there by the customer.   The groomer retrieves the dog from there. She was masked and gloved.  When she was finished with Katie she put her back.  Payment was via cash in an envelope left in a ziplock bag.  Sanitizer was available.  Social distancing was observed.

Flour Tortillas, Tortilla Bowls and A Simple Egg Dish

I haven’t dyed eggs in years… but like many, I seem to have a lot of time on hands. So I’ve been doing quite a bit cookings. I’ll probably have a blizzard of posts this weekend.

I’m overrun with duck eggs, and I boiled up a dozen in the multi-pot/instant pot last week, but as you can see, still overrun. Three ducks, two to three eggs a day adds up quickly. So I decided to dye some. Continue reading
