They say.....

That a way to honor
a dog that you have loved, and lost.....
Is to save another.
 
With the help of Big Dog Ranch Rescue
we have opened our hearts and homes
to a very special guy
Meet Finnegan
Finn seems to be his house name
He was brought into this world under
very dire and deplorable circumstances. He was malnourished and neglected....
as were the 66 other great danes that were rescued from a horrendous back yard breeding situation.
It has been closed down.
 Homes are needed for the remaining dogs.
And even though he probably had little or no human contact in his 3-4 years
He has a heart and soul as big as the moon.
He is a love.
Who hugged and smiled at us the moment we met.
 
He has wounds to care for and needs to fluff up
and we cannot wait to give him all of
the love
support
and healing
that our heart and arms can hold.
Rescuing a dog saves two...
the one you rescued..
and the one that will take the space,
 
Think about saving a soul...or donating to the great work that the recues do.
 
Here's to you, Bo . I know you are smiling...and drooling.

Dare to eat a peach....

So as this summer is sailing away at record pace
and temps
 upon the challenge of a friend
I decided to grab the peach by the pit...
 
Said friend benevolently gifted us with a box of straight off the tree southern freestone peaches
sweet
scrumptious
even succulent
 
Then, said friend, practically challenged....dared me to make a recipe that she makes
Peaches and Crème Brulee
challenge on!
four ingredients
who doesn't love the simplicity of that?
five if you count the peaches
which were hollowed out
in preparation
for a decadent, albeit delish,
crème brulee mixture
It was cooked in a makeshift bain marie...over simmering water
until it hits 180 degrees... and coats the back of a spoon.
:: slurp::
Then filled in the hollowed out peaches....
sugar added
and flamed  for a candied sugared crust with a kitchen torch
Mine was not as pretty as hers....
 
But DAYUM.
it was delectable....and you eat the bowl!
 
recipe adapted from here
 
Get yee some peaches.
stat.

They say....

That the salt in the ocean
is from the tears
of all the misunderstood sharks....
who just wanted to cuddle.
 
My peaceful early morning walk was interrupted this morning
 

By a lone fisherman....and the bringing in of a
shark...
He was strong, albeit young.

 And could certainly do damage
with his razor sharp teeth and thrashing fighting body
 I did not like watching this fight
yet I watched.
Not so quietly rooting for the shark
and admiring his strong and elegant beauty.

 He was saved. And pulled back in his ocean
Thrashing wildly
 then stealthily moving towards the sun rise
 
 While the quieter creatures.....continued to do their thing.
 quietly.
he, too, was saved
 
 I came home to a new appreciation of the
 gifts from the sea
 



 
Peace out.

Saddest goodbye...

 
This past week we had to say a
final goodnight
to our beautiful, bold and so so loved
friend....
Bo.
 
 
You were our sweetest hello
and our saddest goodbye.





 
sleep well our gentle knight.

How lucky we were
to know
and love you.
