FOR TODAY, June 13, 2017
Outside my window ...
Early morning overcast, but the kind you know is going to burn off and leave you with a sunny day in its wake. Cool, but not cold.
I am thinking ...
Eileen and Tim won't be able to come this year. Their television broke and they have had to buy a new one, so their trip has been put off until next year. I have no doubt eventually they will get here. Its probably better putting it off until next year I guess, what with all we have been through this year. Give Todd lots of time for recuperation, and then we can have some money saved to show them a good time.
In the kitchen ...
Mother's Creamy Tomato Soup. From a restaurant/Bistro named Mothers. Not my actual mother. This is pretty good. Excellent actually. A tad bit faffy, but well worth the effort.
On my "To Cook" list ...
Real Taco Pie from BS Recipes. This is intriquing. It has a potato crust.
Good to know ...
Homemade "all natural" bug spray. From Designer Trapped. Sounds good!

Finding Gobi, by Dion Leonard, the true story of a little dog and an incredible journey.
Like A Streecat Named Bob before it, Finding Gobi is a truly heart-warming story for animal lovers worldwide…
In 2016, Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner, unexpectedly stumbled across a little stray dog while competing in a gruelling 155 mile race across the Gobi Desert. The lovable pup, who earned the name ‘Gobi’, proved that what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in heart, as she went step for step with Dion over the treacherous Tian Shan Mountains, managing to keep pace with him for nearly 80 miles.
As Dion witnessed the incredible determination of this small animal, he felt something change within himself. In the past he had always focused on winning and being the best, but his goal now was simply to make sure that his new friend was safe, nourished and hydrated. Although Dion did not finish first, he felt he had won something far greater and promised to bring Gobi back to the UK for good to become a new addition to his family.
This was the start of a journey neither of them would ever forget with a roller coaster ride of drama, grief, heartbreak, joy and love that changed their lives forever. Finding Gobi is the ultimate story of hope, of resilience and of friendship, proving once again, that dogs really are ‘man’s best friend.’
I am looking forward to ...

An old English Tudor rose from the garden . . . the garden smells heavenly at the moment. It is filled with roses in bloom of all kinds. And the black currants are almost ready to pick and we are picking strawberries. We are blessed . . .
