What’s Cooking

Puppy chow also called Muddy Buddies on the Chex cereal website where I got the recipe.
I used Shreddies because that’s all I could find in our grocery store here, and it turned out just as well!I made 'puppy chow' @lala_lizzith !

Salvaged half of our broken lamp

Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition for me, but where are all the white eggs?  There aren’t any in the supermarket here so what’s a girl to do?

These are eggs from a few years back

Episode 006 - Spinning Time

(27:48) Moment of Drama

The clocks change on Sunday and we move to British Summer Time, so here’s a sonnet about time.

Sonnet LVII (57)

Being your slave what should I do but tend
Upon the hours, and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend;
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world without end hour,
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour,
When you have bid your servant once adieu;
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
Save, where you are, how happy you make those.
So true a fool is love, that in your will,
Though you do anything, he thinks no ill.

(30:24) Shall we Shog?
