friday evening

lilly lu's home, although still quite ill. (get updates at her brother's blog:

there's approximately 90 minutes left on princess tara's commentathon--she's raising money for lilly lu's v-e-t bills. if you haven't left your comment, stop by

please keep purring for her...(and every other kitty/human who might need our love and support)


while i don't really like live music of any kind, i was happy to hear mama sing the friday song today: friday, friday, friday is our favorite day! we've got a weekend without big plans except to unpack the last 4 boxes (office supplies), nap, and spend time with friends. maybe we'll make some gluten-free peanut butter cookies*.

i can't remember if i told you that mama bought a new printer before we moved. she started to unpack it at the old place and then decided not to. after we moved, she couldn't find the software and cords--anywhere! so tonight, mama tells me that the software was in the very last box (of every single box in the house!). the power cord and usb cable were in the second to last box. i don't get it...i don't EVER lose anything (ok, i don't really have anything to lose, but still...!).

another thing mama found tonight was the 'clapper' she got for christmas. up until now, she has to disturb me and ben2 as she reaches over from the bed to turn off the lamp. now, she can just clap. oh, sweet dreams are made of this...


i just had a little chat with mama and she agreed to make the cookies. so if you're out and about tomorrow, feel free to teleport on over around 3. there'll be cookies for our beans (diet coke, diet orange, fresca, water, and regular coke and pepsi...maybe even milk if someone wants some), and i'll score some primo nip for us. i might even let you play with my whirly bird!

maybe i'll see you tomorrow?

*mama's gluten-free peanut cookies are so won't even know they're gluten-free. here's what to do:
preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2 cups peanut butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
(recipe can be halved)
drop by tablespoonful onto non-stick, or greased or parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
bake for approximately 12 minutes and until golden brown. (in the oven at our new place, 350 is actually closer to 400, so be aware that your oven might not be 350 when you set it. mama will bake these at 300 instead because heat that's too high will make them tough.)
cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet and enjoy!
(mama frequently adds peanut butter chips and chocolate chips for extra zing)

Those cookies sound yummy! My mom makes a similar recipe, except she uses egg whites and Splenda, to try to make them a *little* more healthy. Silly humans.

I'll happily teleport over for some 'nip!

Parker said...

Yummy recipe - Mommy might try that one! Thanks for the invite!

I love the Friday song!

Suzanne, I think I would like a clapper too. Usually my Mommie reads in bed at night, and that's when I get all snuggled in. Then, she has the nerve to reach over to turn off the light, getting me all unsettled.

Those cookies sound good. I would love to teleport over and have one. Thanks for sharing!

Those cookies sound good. We'll stop by later. Maw thinks she's gonna make the chicken pot pie on Monday, but then we can't post pictures until Tuesday. So maybe it'll be Pot Pie Tuesday? Hhhmmmmm.

Can we ever see pictures of Ben2?

Luf, Us

Suzanne said...

forty paws, ben2 pictures are a few pages back in my blog archive.

mama will post new pictures when she's able to get a new digital camera. dad got the 'family' camera, and he doesn't live here any more. (at the moment, mama doesn't have the $ to shop. hopefully soon!)

Hello Suzanne. Thank you for coming to my blog. I like your blog, too. I am adding you to the Pablo Fan Club memberlist. It is good to have an older, wiser club member to give advice. Welcome!

Lux said...

Those gluten-free cookies sound Good! And I wish we had a Clapper-thing.

Parker said...

How long do you bake them? Mommy is gonna' make some with splenda tonite!

Suzanne said...

parker, the cookies bake for approx 12 minutes, although it depends on how hot your oven is when it's set for 350. (the one in our new place is almost 50 degrees too hot!)

We love cookies here, and milk. Sometimes I help with the baking, I like helping in the kitchen... testing food and such.

We hope you had a wonderful Saturday!!
