Dancing Deer ~ Trained Blue Cattle Dog ~ Olga's Axe & My Dude ~ Veggie 'Chips' ~ Cuke Soup ~ Sami ~ Buck/Doe/Fawns ~ See Jane Date ~ Mojito

Good 46º clear sunny morning. Going to be hotter again today, but nothing like So. Cal and Arizona!!!

This will put a smile on your face first thing this morning. A young deer dancing in a creek with a Golden Retriever .... Only 1½ minutes long
And then from pal Nancy (Kujala .. Wilson S'63) is a video of a super intelligent Australian Blue Cattle Dog... Amazing!
Of course speaking of dogs... my friend Olga posted this on FB of her newest acquired pooch, Axe, laying on her foot watching TV!

My Dude likes to lay by my feet and get rubbed by my foot. Here we are on the front porch....
Our pets are heaven!

Dinner was first some snacks..... Wine and the mixed veggie/green pepper/okra chips: 

I HAD to make more of that Cold Cucumber Soup! I doubled the recipe. If you missed it, on the left is the index of blogs, go to August 12th. So, this is 3 pounds of cucumbers....
Cut up, take out seeds, cut up and mix with salt and let sit in colander til excess liquid runs out, pat dry, mix with seasonings and yogurt and process in the food processor, or in my case, the Bullet!
A cup of this after the veggie chips and I was full. SOOOOOO good. This will be a staple in this house for sure!
Then the eggplant I got at 7 Oaks Farm was on the agenda to cook, but wasn't in the mood. Tonight!!
Brian Jen and family were all up at the Motion Matrix,, where Tucker and Sami take gymnastics. They were having a yard sale to raise money for the kid's programs. Jen posted this picture of Sami on FB....

Oh, and by the way...................

Yesterday afternoon the buck was out in the yard... eating the leaves off the apple tree and grapevines and some grass. Then laying down in the side yard..... all these photos taken through windows so I wouldn't frighten them.....

I was happy to see the momma doe. She spent some time in the front yard, resting on the grass in the shade.
I worry about her, as it appears she has a skin problem. Hadn't seen her for a few days and was worried. Also only say two of the fawns. Yesterday the fawns were out there while mom lay in the yard...
She eventually jumped over the fence and headed their way. I was praying for the Lord to "give her some love" as she looks bad. Then out of the trees come her three babies, jumping and running to her and greeting her. Prayers answered, she got the "love"!!!
The other doe joined the buck eating the apple leaves.
I texted Brian and Kris that the deer were in my yard most of the afternoon. Brian texted back "a shirtless man" had mowed his front lawn in the afternoon and then mowed the backyard. !!!!! LOL! My son the nut!  And Kristen texted that the only thing down there was a cat who comes around and makes the dogs bark!  The joys of country life!

After dinner I watched some of the national female gymnastics competition, an episode of Blue Bloods (Tom Selleck....YUMMMM!), and a Hallmark movie, See Jane Date.

Cute, but I didn't like the other characters in the movie... her boss's secretary a total beeeeeotch! Her aunt and cousin, total beeeeeotches! And the stupid men she dated! Finally a good ending. Struggle to get there though~
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

Today shouldn't be as scorching as yesterday. Maybe I'll make limeade later with mint from the garden. Why should the snails have all the fun?

Just wanted to drop in because I am constantly reading, but can't remember the last time I commented. Your blog always brings joy to my list. The cold cucumber soup sounds incredible, too!
