Insect on a flower 160/365
It was a fairly uneventful weekend. Saturday Mr. Wild Dingo had a friend over for a bike ride and some post ride snacks. I spent a little time hanging out with them and then took a long rest. Later, we gave the dogs an over-due bath. It really helps to have Mr. Wild Dingo help me bathe them since I'm still so weak and get light headed when I change positions from sitting, bending over or standing up.
I made halibit filet for dinner simply because the tomato and basil vinegrette is to die for. I'm feeling more myself these days. Though I'm still weak and need lots of down time, I can cook again, which is nice.

Instead of Mr. Wild Dingo giving me a break for the weekend by walking the dogs for me, we did a family day walk on a new trail near home which the dogs always love. Well, it was new for Mr. Wild Dingo. The dogs always love a full family pack walk. It gave me a chance to practice shooting while Mr. Wild Dingo walked with the dogs. Naturally the cracker kept a close eye on me and at times wrapped the leash around my legs reminding me that I'm supposed to be his walk partner.
But the best part of the weekend was when Mr. Wild Dingo accidentally invented the Gluten-Free, Blueberry Crêpecake when he deviated from his normal weekend pancake recipe. I thought they looked fantastic. Mr. Wild Dingo thought my Lyme Brain was in full swing as he thought they were a disaster. I don't like pancakes much as they're too sweet but these were amazing. Not too sweet and just right. I didn't even want to leave any for the cracker or the criminal. When I gobbled them up happily, almost cleaning my plate, he claimed I was a whack-a-doodle. I don't care. I'm gonna order them again next weekend!
Now Mr. Wild Dingo is obsessed with finding a Crêpe cooking pan. I'm not arguing with that!
Glad you are feeling more like yourself, now to build up some strength. Those two plates look amazing but Mom is really stuck on that tomato and basil vinaigrette - it looks pawsitively delicious!!
