|Me keeping an eye on things.|
Oh, there is something big happening tomorrow night. The fun police will be back in town. Yep, that is right, Dad is coming home and it looks like we will be together for the rest of the year! We are leaving here later this week and heading to our next destination. We were supposed to head to California after Christmas but those plans were canceled. We were quite disappointed. Mama kept us busy though and we did fine.

What Is Happening In Our Kitchen This Week
Mama sometimes mentions what new gizmo she has bought or the new recipes she has tried, so maybe I will try to include that once a week. I don't know. Our blog pretty much flies by the seat of its' pants as they say. We will give it a try and see what happens.
Mama uses an electric skillet daily. She seems to have to replace them about twice a year. The non-stick stops working and they start not to heat evenly. She decided to try a different type of skillet this time since she doesn't think she should have to replace them so often. She is hoping that this one lasts longer.
The is the Presto Foldaway skillet. Why is it different? Well the cooking area is made of ceramic. It is non-stick. It is heavier than the other skillets she has bought and seems to be made well. The main selling point of this skillet is that it comes apart for storage. Mama didn't care about that though. She liked the ceramic cooking surface.
|Just the base.|
|The base stored inside the skillet.|
|The entire skillet|
She purchased it at Target.
The next thing that has Mama excited is that she finally found egg rings at a reasonable price...$3.99 for two. She kept seeing them for $15 and she said she was not paying that much. She found them at Bed, Bath and Beyond, if you are interested.
|Why does she want a round fried egg?|
|This is the reason. She likes to make sausage, egg and cheese muffin sandwiches and she was aggravated with her eggs not being round. Yes, she really has very few problems. BOL!|

Why is Scout wearing a hat? Mama thinks the sun hurts her eyes. The vet said her eyes are fine.
Why is it a Smurf hat? Because it was on clearance. BOL!
Does Scout like it? Nope, she rolled in the dirt with it. She was hoping to hit a pile of doggy doo doo, but she missed.

|The object is to get the treats out of the compartment.|
|Scout says it is "Easy Peasy"!|
|Yep, pretty easy.|
|You just have to lift up the lid. I usually use my nose, but the mouth works, too.|
|I'm smarter than I look. BOL!|
|It can be adjusted to make it harder. I think we are ready for that level.|

The book is called The 45 mph Couch Potato and it is written by Aggie (Bohemian Agile) and her Mom, Leslie Balcerak.
The illustrations by Rosemary Orbegoso are great!
|Scout enjoyed the book too, but she is a little down. You see, she found out that Aggie is her cousin (same grandfather) and Scout feels like she hasn't done anything big in her life like writing a book. Silly girl!|
On a sad note....Aggie was attacked by an unleashed dog on December 26th. She received more than 40 stitches and is at home recovering. This is the second time she has been attacked. If you would like to send her a get well wish, her email is firstname.lastname@example.org

The home is quite impressive. Home tours are given twice a day, but visitors are able to take an audio tour on their own and that is what the folks chose to do since they arrived 2.5 hours before the next tour.
We apologize for the crooked photos. We fixed all of them, but the changes are not saving and we are tired of playing with it.
|Stained windows are throughout the house.|
|Tulip chandelier which hangs over the foyer.|
|Impressive fireplaces are located in every room.|
|The basket holds calling cards from guests.|
|Photos of the family were displayed in this.|
|Ceiling of the above picture.|
|The wood carving is amazing.|
|View of windows on the second floor.|
|Chapel across from Bishop's room.|
|View of staircase from second floor.|
The folks visited a few other places, but we will save that for another day.
