Some Coffee and Some Dog Food

Right now, as I sit here typing, I am multitasking, I am doing a foot mask, a load of laundry, running the dishwasher, making Stormie’s food for the week and drinking water. Oh and I am typing this. 

This morning has been busy, I put together an outdoor garden storage box, a patio set and fed the stray cats. That was after having a pot of coffee, of course, nothing begins until coffee has been had. Oh I also saw this TikTok on how to cook bacon a certain way, I tried it and it did not disappoint. 

In case you’re curious, you take a baking sheet, line it with parchment paper and then twist the bacon. Put in the oven at 350 degrees, turn after 20 minutes, cook 20 more minutes and it is the right amount of crispy. The perfect amount! I did let mine cook an extra 5 minutes because it was thick sliced bacon, crispy without any burning. 

Oh and yes, I do make my dog’s food, it is all real ingredients, no dyes or chemicals. She loves it, if you would like that recipe, it is as follows:

2 cups of brown rice, I cook this in the crockpot for an hour in a about a cup of beef bone broth.

2 or three sweet potatoes, depends on the size

2 packages of vegetable mix of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots

3 pounds of ground meat, she hates turkey so beef for her

I cook it in the crockpot on high for three hours and this amount lasts a week.

I feed her a cup in the morning and a cup in the evening, I warm it up in the microwave for thirty seconds.

I understand she is spoiled and I am ok with that, she is a good companion and semi-loyal, as on a Husky can be.

I have decided to make my patio into an oasis, I have been cleaning it and planting flowers, I want to get a canopy. There is no cover on the back porch and I think that would just be the icing on the cake.

I found some inexpensive ones that look simple to put up, they brag it can be done by one person. I hope that is true, since I am just one person, I was surprised how easy the storage unit and patio table was to put together.

I am not a handy person and I am kind of clumsy, I have been since I was a child.

On to superhero things, I watched the season ender of Falcon and Winter Soldier. It was perfect, I want to say so much more but will not until next week.

The reason being I know not everyone has seen it and I don’t want to inadvertently give any spoilers.

I will tell you this, I became a little emotional during two different scenes. In a good way, I really hope there is a season two.

We did get the release date for Loki, June 11, which is a perfect day. Can I be honest? Any day that Loki would have premiered would have been a perfect day! 

This past week was really rough at work, then my second to the last call of the day made the whole week worthwhile. I can’t say too much, just that she also has cameras in her backyard to capture wildlife. Such a fun call to end my week.

It was my service anniversary this week, I have 24 years with this company. Do I feel appreciated? Absolutely not. I would be replaced if I dropped dead while working. They would dock my pay if it was in the middle of my shift.

But something keeps me there, one would say the pay, yes that is part of it, but it is also the people I work with. Also the customers, I genuinely enjoy helping people, sometimes they make it hard to help them, but I enjoy it nonetheless.

I hope you all have had a good week and you have a good one going forward. Oh and hello China! I almost forgot, but I remembered!
