I seem to have lost all desire to blog about recipes for the moment. There has been much going on and I have been busy in the kitchen, making gift plates of treats and planning the menu for the Christmas Eve party. Tonight, as I finished watching Love Actually, I realized that it was Friday night and once again I hadn’t even thought about dropping a recipe thread off here.
My apologies. But, still no recipes. How about a little Bixby news? The other day on a walk we were attacked by a little Cairn Terrier, hell-bent on self-destruction. We were the only reason he veered from his course to dash across a very busy street. Came right at the Beast and started biting at his face and ears. Bixby, being Bixby, tilted his head at this intrusion, backed up to me and then sat on my feet. Because of his size, once he sat, little dog could not reach anything vulnerable (it was kind of funny to watch) and his owners were fast to retrieve him. He had escaped from his fenced yard. But it scared me, without a doubt Bixby could have done some real damage if he felt threatened, or felt I was threatened. I’ve tried to teach him to take his cues from my posture and reactions and I think that paid off here.
Back to Love Actually. Not a great movie, but one I drag out every Christmas because there are some great parts to it: Sam and Daniel; Karen and Harry; David and Natalie. And I’m basically a sappy romantic when all is said and done. What it really has though, is some great music. Three that I added here. What favorite, sappy holiday movies pull you in each year?
Consider this an open thread.
