How long will this last?

My dog & cat do not like each other at all. It has been 2 1/2 wks that they have been together and I thought by now they would surely be able to tolerate the others presence. I was wrong, they are still barking/growling at the sight of the other. Will they eventually become best buds or am I doomed to having unhappy animals? Any advise?

True Love

I got up this morning at 7:30 and got ready to meet a friend. I had to drive 14 miles and we stood talking for 1 hr and I turned around and came back home. I even put make-up on...that is true love!

It has been so stinkin' hot lately that I haven't felt like doing much so I have been hanging out reading. I read "The Accidental Werewolf" by Dakota Cassidy yesterday and it was a good quick read. I even laughed out loud in a couple places.

I have been quite busy lately, I have adopted a dog. It is the first dog I have ever had and I wasn't sure about having one at first but I am in love now. She is 1 1/2 and a Chorkie (half Chihuahua & half Yorkie). She loves to play and she takes every step I take and when I sit down she lays beside me and goes to sleep. I have already made her some peanut butter doggie cookies as a reward for when she uses the litter box....yep..that's what I said. SHE IS LITTER BOX TRAINED!!!! How WONDERFUL is that. The PB cookies smelled so real that I had to tell my DS & DH to not eat them although they are full of whole grains. I tasted one...LOL. They aren't sweet but don't have anything bad in them. I wouldn't use the litter box for one but Sooky is tickled pink to get it.

Crash Hot Potatoes

I made these potatoes tonight with our chicken fried steak and they were yummy. I found the recipe here at The Pioneer Woman Cooks. If you haven't checked out her site you should as she is so funny and has some awesome recipes. It was 103* here in the shade today and I still turned on the oven to 450* and it was well worth it.


I took a couple limes and lemons and blended them whole with 4 cups water and 1/2 cup sugar and then strained and added some more water. It was delicious and refreshing.

Another oops

I forgot to take pics of the raw dough but here it is and it was as good as anything I have eaten in a restaurant.

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

I made homemade pizza for dinner last night. It was wonderful thanks to the crust. I used Jay's Signature Pizza Crust
added about a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour to the recipe and that's it. Simple, simple, simple!

Proofing the yeast.


It is forming a ball and cleaning the sides of the bowl.

All done and it needs to rise for about an hour. I covered it with plastic wrap and set it in my unlit oven.

OOOOPS...I forgot about it...LOL. I punched it down and put it into a ziploc bag and tossed it in the refrigerator.
