Kili Says “Ole!”

Come to find out, I didn’t have nearly as many tomatoes for a canning day as I had planned. Also? I didn’t have any more canning jars or the energy to start an extensive project. I was sidelined late last week with an inner ear infection that was by far the most painful experience I’ve had in a very long time. So, instead of laboring in a hot kitchen this weekend, I used my tomatoes for a much quicker project and used my time curled up on the couch with Netflix and a certain furry friend.

Kili (Kilimanjaro) is just about the sweetest dog you can imagine. We spent most of the weekend together while her parents were away. She did not like the sound of the blender, but did enjoy the copious amounts of cuddle and snuggle time afterward.

As for the salsa? It was fresh, easy and I threw in whatever I could find, including those tomatoes and some cilantro from the garden. I’ve decided life is just better with copious amounts of home grown condiments and boisterous puppies. And antibiotics. And Advil. And Diet Coke.

I’d better stop there.

  1. Kili is such a cute pup. Isn’t it fun to dog-sit now and then? We can’t have pets due to my husband’s health issues, but I thoroughly enjoy other peoples’ dogs. Those tomatoes and salsa look yummy.

  2. Hope you’re feeling better. ((HUGS))

  7. Seriously, those tomatoes look way too delicious. And the pup!!! OMG. So cute. I’d argue that mine’s cuter but she just farted on me so she’s killing her chances over here.

    Heard about your ear infection via Twitter…hope you’re back to tip top shape! Also: THE SALSA. I’m pretty sure you’ve never posted anything that hasn’t made my mouth water.

  8. I think I am in love…. Kili is so beautiful!

  9. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well. Hope the ear infection (and the pain) went away by now. Salsa looks delicious. I love salsa.

  10. She’s so cute. I’ve never canned but I have laid on the couch watching movies with furry friends and that’s a great way to spend time.

  11. I hope you’re better by now…..
