Many kitties feeders here...

My friend is also one of them, and I was so surprised when one day, coming back to her home in her car (I've left my car in her parking),  lots of kitties were waiting for her and their food. She told me that they know the engine's noise😁

 

 

Do they have a program to fix them?  Here they do and put a notch in their ear.

Wow!  It is sad to see but wonderful to see your friend caring for them.   

Poor babies😺

One of the cats, previously known as Cory, now named Sparky I got from a rescue shelter end of november has the tip of his ear cut off to show he was vaccinated and fixed as he previously lived in one of these colonies.   Now he is one spoiled boy.

Neither of my parents is doing well. We arent starting off very well either. My dad just cant force himself to eat and drink enough and has been so weak the last 2 days he can barely sit up or get out of bed and my mom is always exhausted. I dont think my dad will make it thru covid.

 

So sorry to hear this.  We have friends who's parents went through a similar situation.  Both tested positive.  Mom wasn't looking good at all and both said that they would never go to a hospital.  Mom then fell and broke her hip which forced a hospital visit.  A week+ in the hospital with dad not allowed to visit followed by recovery time in a nursing home.  Dad was weak both physically and mentally from the stress.  They are both now recovered from Covid and their mom is also recovering from her hip.

 

They were preparing themselves for the worst, and it certainly looked like things were headed in that direction, but things look much better now on the back side.  Keep your hopes up.  Wishing your parents a speedy and full recovery.

There is a blogger that I follow on YouTube.  Bradley Freisen is his name and he is from British Colombia.  

 

Gorgeous video and very cool dog.  I like the dog's headset even better than the fist bump.

sounds delicious.   Now that I am working from home again, I can play in the kitchen during the day.    There are perks to do this virus and working from home 🙂

 

I generally hate cooking, but now that we’re both WFH (and can’t go out to eat in restaurants), we are doing HelloFresh and love it 🙂. However, if we ever end up going back to the office, there is no way we’ll continue...  It’s way to time consuming for “real life”

Normally I would take him to ER but I dont think he can manage on his own and dont know they would let mom stay with him and dont think hospitals the safest place with so much covid. Things are bad here too.

 

 

Oh no, so sorry to hear about your Father.  Does he have covid or other medical issues?

It is really a shame that hospitals do not let visitors.  Human touch by a loved one has great healing powers.

I hope your Father pulls through.

Since we are talking about cooking and meals that we enjoy.  I must say I do  all the meal planning and cooking here.

We eat mostly chicken, fish, pork and turkey.

 

This week our daughter is home from Kentucky and said she would serve us dinner.

 

Now she is just starting to develop her culinary talents and she did not want to blow it, so she decided to play it safe and  carry in a local food from one of the nearby restaurants that I actually never ate at.  She wanted to surprise me.

 

So was I ever surprised when they (oh she brought the finance) arrived home with packages of food.

 

The labeling on the bags must have been spanish.

 

TACO BELL.

 

Now I know why I never ate there.

I had a taco and something supreme, it was not that bad, but filling it was.

 

I'm cooking tonight.

Shrimp Alfredo with creamiest sauce.

Salads

Green beans

fresh biscuits.

 

Might enjoy a "skinny pirate" beverage as I cook.

 

Be safe.

How did it get the smoke flavor in the bag?

 

SERIOUSLY,  have you paid ANY attention.

 

20 hours in bag at 165, 2 hours on BGE at 300ish. Apple chunks

He wears them in all his videos. Bentley the dog even had a craft beer named after him. He also had a fairly substantial leg surgery but came through that too. 
 

I will find the beer video I’ll post it later.

One of our sons loves taco bell.  When he graduated college and got his first apartment I think he lived off of taco bell till he realized how much money he was spending every week.  Personally, I can live without taco bell.  

If in the mood for a taco I like to make a shrimp or fish taco.  Yummy!

Speaking of food... We were so disappointed in the BBQ place on Oasis...  While the stuff tasted really good, they left the membrane on our ribs.  WTH?  Is that even a thing?  Every rib recipe we've tried (we've only done smoker and instant pot recipes), specifically tells you to remove the membrane prior to cooking.

Sorry your year is starting off downhill too.

 

Dallas says it will take until july before they can start to vaccinate the general population. They have no idea even when they can start 1B like my parents vaccinations. Weeks at best as they says tens of thousands more of 1A to do but starting next monday they will receive more doses 2k a day. Here they will do all 1A before 1B from what I understand and expect those 2 lists to take until July. .. my parents need to protection. ..though I cant afford to get sick from it either as I'm their lifeline for food and necessities, drug pick ups for instance. 

 

 

Sorry to hear your mam and dad are unwell.

You can buy or get on prescription drinks like Fresubin we got for Pauline's late mam and dad which are full of nutrition in a drink form when solid food is hard for them to take.

So sorry for you and your parents -- you're stuck between hard choices.

 

It's quite a dilemma. Just now I've seen statistics on TV about the amount of people who contacted Covid while being in a medical establishment -- 16%...

 

May be Graham's suggestion above can help getting their strength back.

The drinks came in several different fruit flavours so Ruth and Roy could pick the flavours they wanted.
