Good 50º drizzling morning. About 3am I heard the wind and rain. Howling wind! Pounding rain. So far, 1". Of course the dog goes out and comes in wet. Same with the cat!
So much rain in the Portland area that it is causing flooding and over 50 people had to evacuated.
A yearly reminder, this started back in 2008, about receiving emails from FedEx, UPS, USPS, etc that a package for you was unable to be delivered and you should open the attachment and print out the invoice. This link can launch a virus that can steal personal information. Beware. Trash any suspicious email!! (Thanks Ruth for the reminder!)
Breakfast was plain yogurt, chicken thigh, and a drizzle of Jen's Ranch Dressing....
Jen made this up as they love ranch dressing but she wasn't happy with all the ingredients, mostly the MSG. So, I am going to share this with you, it's soooooooo good!
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp: dried dill, dried parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, kosher salt... also chives either fresh or dried.
Whisk. Keep refrigeratedI didn't have any onion and garlic powder, only granulated, so I put 1/2 t. of each in the Magic Bullet and made powder!
I got this from Greece traveling pal, Pat Kelly. Such imagination. What fun to watch for

LOL.... LOVE police dogs!
When I worked the 911 & calls for service desk at Lakewood Sheriff's Station, there was a K-9 Deputy who would come in with his Belgin Malinois dog and the dog would make a beehive straight to me and lay his head on my lap!
Awwwww.... he was so sweet.
Went shopping yesterday during a break in the weather. Dropped off some 'stuff' to Jennifer, aka Murph the Surf, at the Kitchen Company. Then to Brian's office to drop off more 'stuff' and take him my paper towel holder to see if he can fix it. It's a little man who is holding the rod the towels go on and the rod came off. I tired to fix it, but no luck. Brian not feeling the best, sore throat. Sami had strep. B did see a doc for some meds. Kristen said at her school they sent home a bunch of kids with sore throats. Going around! Be careful! Use your sanitary wipes after touching anything!! And for the BEST sore throat cure, gargle with ½ vinegar and ½ water. The vinegar kills the germs in your throat. Swallow a bit of the mix. Really works! Then to Safeway for my twice monthly shopping. Lastly to Petco for Royal Canin for Bruiser. I had a "cat" sweatshirt on and got into lots of conversations with 'cat people'.
The deer were out in force in the back .... first just one mom and baby, then the whole troop!
Dinner was reruns of the creamy cheesy bacony chicken tortellini! Chair, nap, wine, Blue Bloods segments. Ahhhhh....
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.
