Happy New Year!

The New Year is bringing some new happenings here at the EoT. I’m still hurting from the loss of my dog, Fred, and took comfort in knitting and reading lately instead of blogging. I really miss my little alarm clock/lap heater/worrier/entertainer. In a way Fred was here to help me get ready to be a mom and I treated him like my little boy. I trained him...

Goodbye Fred

Last weekend was a sad one for us. Our beloved miniature dachshund, Fred, drowned in my dad’s Koi pond. Fred was a great dog. Sure he had his faults. These were determined almost immediately upon bringing him home from the breeder. “Fred,” I would tell him, “you need to shape up. You smell like a dog. And it’s not nice to steal people’s hearts.” He didn’t...

My kitchen has been a little slow this week because I have been under the weather.  Despite my sniffles, I made it to Portland to see Christopher Kimball from America’s Test Kitchen.  Fortunately I was able to convince Churchable to drive me because I was too exhausted.  My post this week is for Weekend Herb Blogging which is back with...

The dogs will tell you this has been a hard week. Rain up to Frankie’s knees in the backyard. Little butt had issues with that and was very down cast. We went visiting that day since things were less than ideal for frolicking. While there, they made a pest of themselves and Frankie the dear was sick for the rest of the week. You can see her resting...
