Sunday Snippets

Pudding cups SLURP!
Phew - there is lots of little things happening today - where to begin! Okay we always start our Sunday with a special slurpy treat - rice pudding - pudding cups made with soy milk and no sugar - just a little honey. YUM! Mom part froze these so they are nice and cool

I helped Mom pick veggies from MY veggie garden - we made the most delish Eggplant Lasagna. We have eggplants, tomatoes, onions, carrots, beans, and apple cucumbers (they are the same as ordinary cucumbers -just round and birpless!)

Mom tried tricking me and bought me a new blue moose - I took one sniff and KNEW it wasn't MY old blue moose - so NO - I am NOT playing with it.

Our Gardenias are flowering for the second time and we have both the single flowers and double flowers. The doubles have many more petals and a slightly different scent.

And we have some flowers that popped up from a packet of hummingbird attractor seeds we planted. We have actually seen the little tiny green hummindbirds buzzing around them!  Mom is never quick enough to get a photo of them though  even after she hung up a hummingbird feeder too.

Lastly a couple of paintings - Mom painted one of Miss Sugar for her birthday and yesterday she finished her first 'double' pup painting of Lassiter and Benjamin.

Mom finally gave in and got a smart phone yesterday - let's see if she is smart enough to work it out cause we want to go geocaching.

Don't know what these are - they sure are pretty


  1. Yumsicles for the rice pudding! Your Moms paintings are amazing.

    Loveys Sasha

  2. What great paintings! Your mom is very talented!

    And our mom tries to trick by replacing a favorite toy with an imposter, we are never fooled either!

  3. Lots of snippits there! :)

    Love the paintings. Mom is very talented. Love the flowers too. Now, about that pudding. Save me some! I'm on the way...


  4. Busy, busy days at your house! Your pudding sounds delicious, and I love all your pretty veggies and flowers.

  5. Those are some pawsome pawtographs.

    We are sad to say it looks like DWB is now a memory. We will miss it, but are glad that it introduced us to many friends like you.

  6. That Rice Pudding sounds DELICIOUS... and your Garden GOODIES are BEAUTIFUL... Good enough to put that picture in the BURP Eeez Catalog!!!
    THEY do NOT understand that we LOVE our OLD FURENDS that already KNOW how to PLAY with us. BUTT the new one... IS nice and Clean.. NOT that that matters to US. RIGHT?

  7. Love my smart phone. Anything I couldn't figure out. I just googled it and it told me how to do it.

  8. Rice pudding sounds quite tasty to us - we are all wanting MOm to start dinner but she says we have a while to wait - steaks on the grill tonight:)

    Lightning would love that blue moose - old or new.

    Happy Sunday.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  9. Lots of stuff to celebrate. We're just getting our garden ready to plant. Last year Roxy VETOED the apple cucumbers and zucchinis--maybe she'll okay them this year!

    XXXOOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

  10. Our mom is flipping out over the gardenias, Reilly! She's not sure if she has single or double and she NEEDS to know how they differ in scent. Now who's the nutcase, right, Molly?!
    Rice pudding cups? yummmmmmmmmm

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  11. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the painting of Sugar! So nice you have a garden. Mom & dad had a little one at their old house, and dad tried to make one here but neither mom nor dad had the time to tend it, so it just got overgrown.

    Mom put off getting a smart phone for the longest time but broke down & got one when her flip phone finally died. If my mom can figure out a smart phone, anyone can!


  12. We really love the portrait u made of us. Mommy cant stop starring at the picture of it. Its truly amazing how u captured our look. We are really happy we sent in pictures of us with happy doggie smiles on our faces. Its really making our Mommy smile from ear to ear looking at it. Thanks again. Lassiter Chase and Benjamin (Lassie and Benji)

  13. So much goodness in this post...except for the tricky substitute blue moose. I have loved every single painting you've done. So cool.

  14. Oooooh, those rice puddin' cups look yummers!!!
    Now, don't the peeps understand that we KNOW the diff between OUR stuffies and imposters????? Geesh.
    Yummy veggies! Well, Ma thinks so..I don't care for em', so...
    Ruby ♥

  15. Hey you guys! Sounds like a fun weekend so far! Maybe those flowers are a kind of coreopsis?

  16. Sounds like you are winding down the summer nicely! Mom gets tired though hearing everything yours does! Love Dolly

  17. I see that Reilly and Denny will be blogvilles March pin up pic. Love your blog and pictures.

  18. Sounds like you had a great garden. note, once your mom figures out the smart phone she is gonna be taking an extra 87 million pictures of you! Lee and Phod

  19. Eggplant lasagne? My mom is drooling now. I agree with you, a new blue moose is NOT the old one you loved.

  20. Visiting your blog is always such a feast for the eyes... and it sometimes makes me hungry...

  21. What beautiful dog portraits! Nice work. :)

  22. Rice pudding Oh Yum.. Love the portraits, just wonderful xx00xx
