Those Eyes

I am thankful every day that these beautiful girls grace our lives.  These two are our daily bit of joy.  Both rescued from shelters under extraordinary circumstances- Cedar from Yakima County at just 5 weeks old,and Tahoe from Grant County in her final hour due to exposure to a deadly virus.

We just know they hold more wisdom and patience beyond their years and more love to give than we could ever receive.

Good Dogs. Very Good Dogs.

Blueberry Rhubarb Jam

Of course, after a trip to the local blueberry field,  its natural to have the urge to make jam. How else would I use fresh local berries? Smoothies, berry salads, and pancakes will only get a girl so far.

I had a full rhubarb plant in the garden this year, so I thought I would throw it in the mix.
