The Laughing Otter- because life’s just too short

Updating: Leftover Pictures, Bento, and Other Stuff

Posted on: October 15, 2008

Good evening…

Finally! I relax! *stretches out to post* It’s so nice to have finished early a little bit early tonight. Dinner is finished- a goulash, made with leftover spaghetti sauce, a pound of hamburger, and some … rigatoni noodles? I think. It turned out nicely, actually. Very filling, and very easy. I even had leftovers!

So into the morning bento for Orion went some of the goulash (which I don’t think is actually a goulash by technical definition, but it’s what I was taught to make), a salad topped with smoked turkey lunch meat and bell pepper strips and a container of Catalina dressing, and a hard-boiled egg and mozzarella cheese sticks, and some carrot chunks.

Here’s a pic!

The other day we went to the pet store, hoping for a shampoo and some dog food. My poor Cocoa has a nasty flea allergy and the house is full of fleas… so we had to buy a special shampoo to help with the itching. Poor baby. At the pet store, we saw… a chinchilla!

So cute!

Today, though, I have to admit I had a moment of rar… Cocoa got ahold of Abby’s teething Nylabone. It’s not for heavy chewers, and Cocoa wasn’t supposed to get it- she knows better, too! She took it into a corner and chewed it into pieces… all because it was Abby’s special toy and she wasn’t allowed to play with it.

I was so very frustrated! Such a bad dog. I need to buy a new one, now. Abby can chew the little one, but it’s just not good for her to chew on the tattered end.

In other news, Ennosuke found me a picture that I really love! It’s from the LOLdogs pictures.

It was just so cute I couldn’t resist it!

In the meantime, here’s those bento I missed making. Ennosuke made them for Orion while I was exhausted.

So nice of him to make these for Orion for me!

So other than that, we’re just resting up. Tomorrow’s going to be so busy! I have a vet appointment for Abby at 10:30, a class on breastfeeding at 1pm, a midwives appointment at 3:30 and more errands in the evening. But it’ll be nice- everything all done in one day!

Have a great night!
