parley view parsnip... week in review

A few photos from last week...

This is the most comfortable chair ever, from IKEA and has it be at lest 20+ years old.
My little lady Scottie Kirby, loved this chair and until she was so sick that she couldn't walk let alone jump up, this was her chair to curl up in.
Watson who was her companion has now taken over the chair.

Watson loves to read.

Blogging friend "Numinosity" an artist who lives in Bisbee, Arizona and Alaska, found this completely destroyed book on one of her travels.
 Even though it was ripped and taped she had to buy it and send it to The Square Ones.
Thank You ! we are so happy you thought of us.

The artist had to have Scotties because these drawing are excately
what they look like and the trouble they get into !
The sweet drawing on the left is what Watson looked liked when he was a tiny puppy
 that I held in my hand.

ummmmmmm this is defently thehamish.
When he was a puppy,  he was always running under sofa, beds and the coffee table.
As he grew up, I thought he would have brain damage from all the times he smacked his head, not remembering he couldn't run full speed and still fit under the furniture !
I truly think sometimes all his problems can be traced back to this.
yert !

Here are a few photos from Thursday, the day after our big snow storm.

thehamish looking noble next to the snow Scottie
that Watson made for him.

oh nooooooooes it is mealting

and here is what is left of the last little bit of snow.
oh woe is thehamish
he has a broken heart
yert !

Wonderful blogging friend Empress Bee, put up on her blog her low caliore remake
of a Southern dish of slow cooked green beans with ham.
She has all her low calorie re-makes on her side bar.
I always eat my green beans lightly cooked, almost raw.
But I had this dish once a very long time ago and remembered it was very tasty.
On the Wednesday when it snowed and very cold for Tucson,
I made this for dinner and it was so good.
I use a small piece of Canadian Bacon I had on hand in the freezer.
Yeahaw ! Thanks Bee this was so good

sad,  parsnip
