Prognosis is good for Mr Monkey


During the Christmas Holiday,
Howie was gifted Mr Monkey
 by my soon to be Daughter In Law.

Shortly after, he was viciously attacked by 
Tubbs, my grand-dog and the stuffing was ripped 
out of his poor little head, leaving a gaping hole.
Mr Monkey was put up out of the way to prevent
more injury and sadly he was forgotten... by me.

Last week I noticed him up in the studio 
oh, so patiently waiting for help and healing.

It was a touch and go surgery and a 
plastic surgeon should have been called in,
because although his brains are back inside,
I'm afraid his nose and eyebrow took the worst of it. 



I carried Mr Monkey downstairs with
 Howie leaping and twirling the entire time.
I no sooner sat on the couch when Howie grabbed him
in what can only be described as an embrace,
 and then proceeded to bathe him and sniff him
stem to stern.

We love who we love

Cold Wet Days and Tomato Pie


Very simple ingredients and 1 2 3
Rustic Tomato Pie


Comfort food for the cold and very rainy days
we've been having.

The family is still reveling in the 
engagement news and I even allowed myself
some solitary wine with my pie.

Had several heart tests this week and
next week I begin wearing a monitor. 
Fun times - no answers

No need to comment on the insanity 
and wretchedness going on in the world.
We're all in it.
I Resist and hold tight to Hope.

That's it- It was January - nuff said
