Who’s Playing in the Garden Now

Hey, are ya’ll out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Did ya’ furget us? We kinda fell off the planet fur a few days and didn’t tell anypawdy, didn’t we?. And look’it, I’s getting to write all the postys this week.

 Dezi and Raena chat while laying on the chair

          Getting to Raena? Hmmmmpht  You jumped on me and ran to mommy furst.


Yeah, well, I’s still writing today’s posty. Right?


We’ll see. Depends on what you wanna say.

I’s thought we needed to ‘pawlogize fur disappearing like that. A couple awnties sent emails checkin’ in on us, and we really did purreciate that. Things just got to be a little too much fur mommy and she just kinda shut down. Ya’ know havin’ (on top of the regular pains and purroblems) an infected mouth and all that pain constantly can sometimes make ya’ not be able to think. And thinkin’ she could lose the benefits she has that make it so she can hire somepawdy to help her, was really stressful. We had several peeps come by and fill out applications to help mommy, and we’ve got our paws crossed that one of them works out.


Dezi lays in the wheelchair while Raena meows t her from the top of the stroller.

          Raena, ya’ need to ‘splain that the DHS nurse told mommy to keep trying to hire somepawdy till they made a final determination.


 Raena lays at mommys feet and bathes

You just did sissy. Anyways, the DHS nurse called mommy yesfurday and told her she could keep her benefits fur now. and urged her to get somepawdy in here to help her. Ya’ know, kinda like mommy wasn’t tryin’. You can’t make somepawdy work that doesn’t wanna. The work ethics of peeps these days is just pawful. She also said she worried ‘bout mommy bein’ depressed and all. And wished she had some kinda support or at least somepawdy to talk too. Mommy told her fanky fanks but not to worry, she has us and we have ya’ll.

Anyways, I’s wanted to talk ‘bout somethin’ else today. You all know how sis Dezi’s always meowin’ on ‘bout how I’s messin’ with the new AeroGarden. Well, You should see her with the garden. Ya’ know we got a few sprouts last week and mommy removed those cool caps. No, she didn’t let me have them. She said she was savin’ them to use again. Anyways, that’s not the point. But those caps sure do scoot across the floor well. And they’re just the right size fur carryin’ in one’s mouth. Again, I’s getting’ off track. Let me tell ya’ ‘bout sis Dezi and the AeroGarden.

Ifin ya’ don’t know, Dill is an herb that grows really tall, really fast and has feathery leaves. Mommy says she doesn’t know many uses fur dill outside of pickles, which she doesn’t like, but it makes a purretty plant. And of course it’s feathery leaves was just too much temptation fur sis Dezi.

          Was Not, Raena!!! Me was just checkin’ on the purrogress of everything.


 Dezi munching on the dill plant

Yeah, right. Is that what you call takin’ a bite outta mommys’ herbs?

 Dezi licking lips after tasting the dill plant

          Well what about you runnin’ off with the whole pod? At least what me did didn’t hurt anythin’. After all, mommy said she was ‘posed to purrune them as they grew so they’d get bigger and floofier. All me did was give the dill a bit of purrunin’. Altho’ me doesn’t think me’ll be doin’ that again, least not any time soon. It doesn’t taste very good. Now me knows why mommy doesn’t like pickles. Me doesn’t either. Well, except maybe one of those tickle pickles mes seen ‘round the blogosphere. Me might like one filled with nip. 


 Dezi sitting beside the AeroGarden

A nip pickle? I’s want a nip pickle, sissy. Where’s the nip pickle?


 Dezi lays on the back of the chair

          We don’t have one Raena. Have you already furgotten all the pawsum toys we got fur Christmas?


 Raena plays with Christmas toys

Oh no sissy. I’s luvs all the toys we got fur Christmas, and your Meowday. I’s just thought you meant mommy was growin’ nip pickles in her garden.


          Yeah, right. Altho’ mommy did say that when she gets some lettuce she would start us a pod of grass too. At least we’ll get somethin’.


When’s this gonna happen sissy? 


          Soon Raena, soon. We need to wrap it up now so we can try to get ‘round and visit our furiends.

  1. Hi girls! We love all your pictures. We’re so sorry about the rough time your mommy is going through and the pain. We truly hope she can find someone to help. Every once in a while the lady comes across a recipe that calls for dill but can’t think of a specific one. Dill is very good though.

  2. I’m glad the dhs nurse had good news. what means by now? has your mom to go trhough that every year? that’s hard. I agree with your mom it is a challenge to find a good help… and then there is the fact that the most helps are strangers furst… we need time to find a way that they maybe become a part of our daily routine…and that can be eggs-hausting… we cross all paws and fingers that your mom finds an angel on two legs who makes her days better and brighter and who is a real help…

    1. Yep Phenny, we’re so glad we got dat good news. Mommy hasn’t had to go thru this fur almost 4 years, so it was really stressful fur her, thinkin’ she could lose her benefits cuz other peeps be lazy. And you’re right, it can be kinda scary havin’ a totak stranger come in to help out. We’ve got our paws crossed too. We’re hopin’ we’ve found a good one. Fanks fur da well wishes. Big huggies to all.

  3. Try mixing a pinch with some cream cheese just to see if you might like it. Eating herbs and spices all alone don’t give you a clear idea of what it can do when it’s just a bit to add flavor.

  4. Dill dip is good and you can use it with crackers or pretzels too. It doesn’t have to be veggies. My recipe is 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup mayo, 1Tbsp dill weed, 1 Tbsp minced onion (but try without if you are allergic) and 1 Tbsp dry parsley flakes. Mix thoroughly and chill. You could also try it as a spread with cream cheese, instead of sour cream.

    Also dill is good on fish, especially salmon. We know salmon is expensive but there is canned salmon which is way less money. Make salmon loaf or salmon cakes (like crab cakes) and make a creamy dill sauce for over it. I love salmon loaf. You can always google easy recipes that are affordable. And cream sauce is easy with butter or margarine, a little flour and milk plus any seasonings or cheese you like.

    1. We’re sure awnty Jean, Shoko and Kali would luv these ideas. We, includin’ mommy don’t eat fish, no matter the cost. Well, there is some in o9ne of our foods, but furtunately, it’s not much. Mommy doesn’t really have money fur dips and crackers and stuff, she doesn’t really eat meals even when she does have food. Exceptions were like at Fanksgivin’ and Christmas when she got stuffs to make a whole meal. Mommy used to eat a lot of tater chip sammiches till da tater chips went up to $1.50 and bread to almost $4.00. Milk runs ’bout $4.00 or more a gallon too, and she only gets $10.00 fur groceries, so she has to watch what she buys, ‘specially ifin we need smethin’ from da grocery too. But we’re really glad you enjoy it. Big huggies

  5. Nope, never use dill here. Hope you find some help and momma can get her teeth fixed quick or at least the infections. Did she get antibiotics? If she has an abscess, that can kill her and nobody wants that.

    1. Fanky fank ya’ CK. We don’t think we’ll be usin’ much dill here either. MOL No antibiotics. Da dentist visit was a furee look see, exam and xrays. Lessen mommy scheduled an appointment fur da work, they wouldn’t give her anythin’. Mommys’ doctor told her to go to da dentist or wait till it moved and go to da emergency room. It’s all good. Big huggies

  6. There is cat grass specifically for cats but you probably know that already. I found out not long ago and haven’t tried it yet. It is suppose to be better for cats than just grass. Shoko always goes outside has grass, comes in, barfs and wants back out again. I could do without the thrill of cleaning that stuff up but what’s a cat mom to do?

    1. Yep, mommy grows it all da time. You can purrobably buy some wheat or oat grass seeds fur da cheap at your local feed shop. Dat’s what mommy does. And it’s da same seeds they sell at da store fur kitties fur lots of money. Big huggies
