Yesterday's post was about the seminar I attended this week. The extremely well presented seminar provides professional updates about current issues.
It's a casual atmosphere at these seminars. It's so casual that the participants were given a fidget spinner with the Ohio Society of CPAs name imprinted.
Makes sense to me!
When I finish this hat it'll be available in the shop where there are similar hats in other colors available now.

This week I spent an exciting afternoon at an Ohio Society of CPAs Continuing Professional Education seminar.
Not only is it great to attend these professional updates twice a year, but seeing old friends is fantastic.
Tune in tomorrow to see what I did during the conference while listening to the presentations. ;)

Here's Wendy "framed" in the greenery in the back yard. She's standing on a stone wall that is covered with vines.

Today's picture is very dark because it was taken in the middle of the night.
It was definitely a plot to get my spot in bed when Wendy, our youngest Labrador Retriever came to tell me she had to go out to go potty in the middle of the night. Sure, I got up and took her out. We are delighted our dogs tell us when they have to go out.
I was very careful not to make any noise so My Honey would not wake. I went downstairs with Wendy, turned off the security system, let Wendy out and waited at the door for her, then let her in, reset the alarm, and came back upstairs to go back to bed.
What I found was the other two pups, Penny and Erik (he's behind Penny in the image above) very comfortably sleeping in my bed!
I'm sure it was a plot!
I love those dogs. Of course, they moved over and gave me a small space so I could go back to sleep.

A couple of days ago My Honey asked me to make bread pudding. I reminded him we are both watching the calories and he made some sort of a snorty sound that definitely meant he didn't care. ;)
So, it was off to the kitchen to make bread pudding. Of course, we always have plenty of bread. I didn't find the recipe I used often many years ago so I searched the Internet, found several interesting recipes to get the quantities of milk and eggs to bread, then went wild with the rest.
The image above is the result.
It was (yes, past tense, it's gone) SO good I will definitely make it again soon. This batch was with blueberries, but I have plans to make it with apples and walnuts, bananas, chocolate.... Ah, yes, the possibilities are endless.
OK, we can't afford to eat so many calories very often, but this sure was good!

Our friends Martha and Russell sent me this image of themselves with our friend Ricardo, the Restaurant Manager with whom we sailed on board Freedom of the Seas for six years. It's good to see this image of them all looking so great! The image was taken recently aboard Liberty of the Seas, sister ship to Freedom of the Seas. Martha, you look marvelous in that color! :)
Thank you so much for sharing the picture!

This was last night's dinner. A salad just sounded right for some reason.
This salad included red leaf lettuce, spinach, boiled egg, beets, tomato, yellow peppers sharp cheddar, and crab, of course. :) I could have kept going with walnuts, raisins, etc., but this was more than enough to satisfy our hunger.
