Our two Yellow Labs, Penny (left) and Wendy (right) are best friends.
Penny will be 13 years old in January; Wendy is 3 years old. Penny has retired form her Agility career while Wendy is just getting started. We are sure they are "talking" to each other. Don't you wish they could talk to us, too?

This pretty African Violet has lived with us for quite a few years now. She's in a new pot and a new window for Fall which seems to have given her encouragement to bloom beautifully once again.
We have another African Violet that is part of an arrangement in a big basket. I'll have to take her out and give her her own pot to see what color she is. :)
Oh, to have more window space for indoor plants to thrive in Winter months!
All the best,

Last weekend Catherine and Wendy participated in a three day dog show at our Queen City Dog Training Club.
One of the wonderful advantages of our club is that we have a kitchen where food is available during the show. Catherine asked me to bake a loaf of breakfast bread which I did. She sent me this picture via text just after she started cutting the loaf with the message, "They are eating it as fast as I cut it." :) I'm so glad they liked it!
This double size braided loaf is egg and cheese, cherry and cardamon with egg and sugar glaze. I made it the night before it was served early in the morning at the show. Later in the day Catherine sent me another text, "Did you make another loaf of bread for tomorrow?" I responded, "Uh, nooooooo."
I'm so glad they liked it! I'll probably make another for the next show at our club.

Today's images are a continuation of those I took during our visit to Spring Grove Cemetery recently.
The cemetery was chartered in 1844, not long before the Civil War. Although located North of the Mason-Dixon Line that divided the Union North and the Confederate South during the War, there are soldiers from both armies buried here.
At the top of the hill to the right is the grave of Salmon P. Chase. From Wikipedia: Salmon Portland Chase (January 13, 1808 – May 7, 1873) was an American politician and jurist who served as the sixth Chief Justice of the United States. He also served as the 23rd Governor of Ohio, represented Ohio in the United States Senate, and served as the 25th United States Secretary of the Treasury.
A list of other notable burials is included in the Spring Grove Cemetery Wikipedia entry.
I hope you enjoyed the images of our recent quick trip to Spring Grove Cemetery.

A few days ago we visited Spring Grove Cemetery which is only about ten minutes from where we live.

My Honey made beef stew in our big iron kettle recently on a cold day. What great comfort food! The house smelled marvelous and the dinner was all warm and yummy in the tummy.
What is your favorite comfort food?
