Yesterday I decided to make some soup.... 2 cartons chicken stock, 3/4 cup Mexican flavored rice, Trader Joe's seasoning, Costco pulled pork, organic peeled tomatoes, artichoke bottoms (cut up), garlic, and broccoli. All went into crock pot and cooked on high for 1 hour, and low for 4 hours.

This soup was AWESOME!!! The pork, in place of the chicken I normally use, was just soooooo good!!! Going to have some for breakfast!!!!

Thought this interesting... a skull of a child prior to baby teeth falling out and permanent ones coming in....

My son, Aaron, way up there in the boonies of Montana, had broken his arm in October.

It wasn't healing so Monday he had surgery... bones removed from other extremities and put into arm. He will have a 6 month recovery!! Heal well and fast, sweetie!!! xo

Life is tough for this old cat... Bruiser gets comfy in my lap and snoozes through all the TV shows!!!! LOL

Mike was here yesterday, just ahead of the rain storm, and cut up and hauled all the tree branches from the tree that went down by my gate to the burn pile. Now the burn pile is two stories high!! Well, not quite!

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day.Ciao.
