TBT ~ Shadow of Bruiser ~ Canter T's ~ Alex Models ~ Mary & Gil ~ Overnight Oat Breakfast ~ Doe & Fawn

    
Good 33º clear morning.
The sun came out, but it only warmed to 65º yesterday. Quite windy most of the day. Looks like no rain in the forecast ....

Happy Throw Back Thursday. You LASD folks remember this?


Yesterday morning, I was waiting for Dude on the back porch, to come back from his "duties" in the trees. Bruiser laid down on the cement, waiting also. Thought these pictures were neat!

I love the way the shadow is so interesting!

Here is a site that is collecting $ for Kristen's Cancer Fund by selling t-shirts...

I had sent Kristen some hats for her lack of hair.....
... still, it's too hot in So. Cal to wear them. But if she goes out at night she might wear one!  Alex modeled the hats...
 

 

A special anniversary today... Mary (Fancher) and Gil Zavala... Wilsonites. Celebrating 49 years!    CONGRATULATIONS kids!

Here is an easy make ahead breakfast ...
Overnight Oats:

1 cup oats
1 cup milk (your choice, skim, 2%, almond, etc)
1/2 cup raspberries (or whatever you like)
slivered or sliced almonds
1 T maple syrup
In a mason jar or bowl add 1/2 cup of the oats, then 1/2 cup milk. Next add 1/2 T of maple syrup, a sprinkle of almonds and 1/4 cup raspberries. Repeat. Place lid on container, store in refrigerator overnight. In the morning take out and enjoy!  From www.mom4real.com
Was fixing a rerun dinner of the loaded cauliflower and wanted more... so I cooked some angel hair pasta and roasted a few carrots...

When I went to my desk to get my camera I saw a doe and fawn resting in the shade of the barn...
BTW, sometimes a little comment from folks after I put so much time into my blog is nice. Either on the blog itself (comments at bottom) or email or on FB. I know you guys read it and like it, but comments are a moral booster! Just sayin'.................... ♥
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
