The Sickness

So I've been unexpectedly sick all weekend with a kidney infection. So I have had little to no energy and mostly laid in the bed or on the couch. Napping. Or occasionally watching television. I've been really fun to be around. A barrel of activity, that's for sure.

I have a couple of things to show you though. First, late last week one day, I decided I wanted to let my dogs go outside - it was sunny, but still a little cold. So I dragged out their outerwear. I know. This makes me strange that my dogs have outerwear. It makes me one of THOSE people. It's OK. I'm down with that. So included here are a couple of photos of them enjoying the weather in their cute little outfits.

Also late last week S and I went to dinner over at Patrizio and I convinced him to try some pesto that came with my mozzerella tomato salad. He totally fell in love with it and wanted to make some at home. Had I been feeling better, I would have cataloged the whole process to share with you here. But since I was not feeling well, you get a photo of the final product. It was good, I have to say - a little garlicky, but good. S loved it. He's now totally into pesto. It's so funny.

I do hope to post some more holiday recipes this week if I can get up off the couch. We travel this week, so I have to get the house ready for the animal caregivers and get packed, etc. And then of course there's that little holiday called Christmas - also S's birthday - that comes at the end of the week. There's that too. So I hope to see you here later on this pre-holiday week for something more fun than kidney infections. Geez.

Best wishes for your Monday. See you tomorrow.
