Hey! You trying to start something???!!!

Why, yes I am!  Sprouts and sourdough starter. I have been wanting to do both for a while.  I use to keep sprouts on hand.  Great for snacking, adding to a sandwich and adding to stir fry.  And then sourdough – been meaning to give that a whirl as well.  So we will see how it turns out. Oh and Husband planted pumpkins yesterday!  So excited about that!

And I have to tell you about this blog I found.  The Daily Coyote. Just about anyone who knows me knows I am a cat person, not a dog person.  I like dogs fine. I just don’t want to own one.  And I have my reasons.  In years past I was raising a large family and many times alone with the way Husband’s work took him away and the very last thing I needed was something that needed me.  And dogs need people.  They are very dependent creatures.  Not that they don’t give back, they certainly do.   But, I didn’t have the time nor the energy to give a dog the proper home, so we never had one.  And yes, I know coyotes and dogs are VERY different but most of the time I am drawn to cats, big and small (yes even tigers, Michelle!–or are they drawn to me!?).  But when I bounced into this blog one morning I was instantly smitten.  I am not even kidding you ~ if I baby coyote found its way into my yard, I might just have to love on it whether it liked it or not! This is Charlie and his “siblings”:

I don’t want to ruin Charlie’s beautiful story by trying to retell it~please go over and read for yourself.  You will not be sorry for the time spent and please look at the photos.  Amazing.

That’s it for this morning.  Not even a recipe.  No time.  Husband and I are off to the city for doctor appointments.  His arm/hand ~going to try to schedule his surgery.  And my yearly check up.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

Fascinating page Susan! Beautiful pictures of Charlie there too. Very well done. Thanks so much for recommending!


That is just amazing, glad I took a moment to look. The teeth on that coyote are HUGE. And I thought my Charley had some teeth! He would be a mere snack to that Charlie!
Those crepes looked so good, I love the ones with strawberries.


I’ve been watching Charlie grow since Feb. ’08. He & Eli are amazing. Cats rule! Just watch Charlie, Eli & Chloe and you’ll see it’s true.
Your crepes look so yummy! I learned to make crepes when I was 9 years old. At that time I thought they were “big round pancakes”. LOL! They are very good for breakfast, with butter and honey or molasses all hot, melted and poured over them. Then roll ’em up and cut off a bite and mmmmm…melt in your mouth delish!
