I was blessed with a quiet house for 30 min Saturday while Dave took the hounds on a walk. I actually accompanied them for a while but returned home early. My body isn’t fully recovered from the recent illness. Nigel benefited from the dog-free house.  Cuddles, extra canned food, and love. I’m always amazed at how quickly he settles back into home life, even for a short time. He just flops himself down after checking things out. What a great cat!

Saturday I delivered the maple leaf luminaria to my friend. I met her at the Arts Center and brought along all 4 completed works. She ended up choosing the recent red leaf creation. A good choice! I’ll probably create another 2 before getting them up on my ETSY site. Getting them photographed is going to be the hardest part I’ve been putting off. Oh, and then the labels/assembly instructions. It will come together soon.

Dave caught a few photos of an elderly home we rented 20 years ago. It started life as the school house for the area back in 1911. Now it’s moved about a mile north and will become an interpretative center. A nice end for this place. Love, it will finally get much deserved love!

Finally, we tried out a new recipe from an all soup recipe book. There are 400 to choose from! Sunday night we enjoyed a Thai inspired rice noodles, pork and shrimp soup. Mmmmm it was scrummy! The bowls are by our friend Ted Ernst. Some of our favorites.
