It has been a long time since I spent hours in the kitchen. But yesterday and today, I did. In the last day, I’ve made two batches of apricot jam, one batch of plum jam, a batch of tomato jam, roasted ratatouille, roasted squash, hummus, and I have prepped a bunch of veggies to dip in it. I also made a batch of my famous (not really) green juice. I also went back to work today after a week off, so my photos have taken a bit of a back seat. That said, I did take some shots, Neva has a new friend….a stuffed rat from IKEA. We’ve named him Steve. (silly) I started to see signs of autumn in our neighborhood, and there are new kittens at our vet, who work with adoption agencies. The mom of the last litter is still up for adoption but the vet said he’s had some interest in her. AWW! Photos are through glass, so aren’t the best, but are awww worthy nonetheless. (he also told me Neva’s recent abscess was the biggest he’d ever seen. Um…not sure what to think of that, but sure hoping we don’t have to go through that song and dance again for a long time (if ever). Regular posts should return tomorrow. Happy Tuesday all.
