What It Is

What’s the opposite of dog days of summer….

Cat-naps of the cold winter days?  Freezing days of Jack Frost?  Brrrrr, that’s what I would call it, just down right, brrrrrr.

During one of my nighttime wake up calls I was greeted by the most beautiful freezing rain. 2/9/17

Finding a way to make chores fun, my love got a torch to melt snow

As I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to let go of my expectations of how I think things should be. I now try to accept life for what it is in that moment, not what I wanted it to be.  Case in point, Zoey…

What? me?
What? me?

She is so cute and cuddly

But she has tore up our blinds

Thankfully they are older blinds and we’d talked about replacing them down the road.  We still try to keep her off places and things where she doesn’t belong.

These both somewhat work, but not like I’d hoped

She didn’t like the sticky of the tape, but that didn’t stop her

Soon enough she started jumping straight over the tape onto the counter

That’s right, no shame in my game!
We got her a tree house thinking that would be all she needed

But she's a kitten, and she loves her life and her Charlie

life will always have a little bad that comes along with all the good. That’s what makes living so flavorful!

Speaking of FLAVOR…. I made my first ever frittata. What a fun word, frittata, frittata, frittata.  I just love the pioneer woman, she’s where I got the how to make it and then I just used what we had in the fridge.

first I cooked up some onion, mushroom, asparagus and canadian bacon in my cast iron skillet
gratted some pepperjack cheese, used 8 eggs added a little milk and sprinkled parmesean and tomatoes on half...just in case it tasted different

Then I got so excited to eat it I forgot to take a picture until it was half gone
Put it in the oven for a bit, and then I got so excited to have some I forgot to take a picture until it was half gone

 

I hope you have something you’re too excited about and forget to take a picture until halfway through too!

 

Frittata, frittata, frittata
