parley view parsnip...

My Monday post about what is going on around my home .
Ack ! What is going on with our weather !
First we get the deep freeze that destroyed my citrus grove last winter and now we have this cold rain storm that shouldn't even be here till January. Thanks a lot Canada ! What do you think your doing, why are you sending down this out of season cold weather. Well if the snowshoe fits, please keep it. OK !
Normal Novemeber weather returning on Wednesday, thank goodness.

Day Four...
Hamish is doing better. His eyes are open more but his left eye seems to be progressing slower.
And if the 30 minutes it takes to give him his meds 4 times a day wasn't enough.... he hates the cone of shame. He refuses to go outside with it on. We have picked him up deposited him on the grass and that doesn't even help. So every time he has to go outside, off goes the cone. Even eating I have to take it off but I have to watch him like a hawk because he wants to scratch his eyes. I was hoping the cone would come off Thursday but I am thinking maybe not ?

woof !
get this thing off of me !

Sunday Dinner.
Taharava Kootan from the Kerala region of India.
Country Style Duck Curry.
Again fabulous son cooked this wonderful dinner for me. Duck, potatoes, ginger, cloves, onions, shallots, mustard seed, coriander, cardamom seed and of course coconut milk. Utter bliss !

  1. Hello Gayle:
    Poor Hamish really does look rather sorry for himself, but the eyes do seem to be improving.

    What awful weather you are having. The weather is much colder here in Budapest but at least our days are bright and sunny and, importantly,no snow yet.

    Curry. Love it. Could your son cook a little extra next time and send it to us in a food parcel?Please.

  2. I was going to say you had best get that weather straightened out before I arrive in Tucson tomorrow! It's full on winter with sparkly snow here with some subzero temps occasionally. I do hope your doggie will get squared up into top notch health soon. My, oh my that duck curry looks wonderful!
    I think we're going to Kerala in January, yay!

  3. The food looks delicious.

    Hamish looks better. I don't blame him for not wanting the cone of shame around his neck.

    Weather is tough when it is unexpected, but I love the picture.

  4. Hamish looks like a nice soup bone might improve his mood.

  5. Brrr, it sure is cold out. Poor Hamish, I hope his eyes get better soon so he doesn't have to wear the cone. :)

  6. «Louis» hopes Hamish heals quickly!

    That curry looks fabulous!

  7. Poor Hamish. That looks very uncomfortable!
