Strawberry, Banana, and Blueberry Ice Cream

Hi everyone! I had some frozen banana & blueberries I wanted to use up, so today I blended them with frozen strawberries for a nice, cool treat! The resulting color was so pretty! 


Here’s Daisy being a little creeper… 



In other news, Buttons has been quite the brave kitty! At her last checkup, the vet told us to keep an eye on one of her canines that looked a bit questionable but didn’t seem to be bothering her. Recently, however, we’d noticed she’d been eating slower and was being extra sensitive about her mouth, so we scheduled another appointment, at which they recommended a dental exam/cleaning, adding that she probably had two teeth that needed to be pulled, maybe more (they couldn’t quite tell because she was fussing so much). So she had her dental appointment yesterday and ended up having three teeth pulled (her upper left canine and two lower premolars). Once I got her home, she recovered fairly quickly from the stress and was so happy to have her dinner! Her appetite has been great, her energy levels are good, and she seems much happier now that those gross teeth are gone! We’re still keeping an eye on her, though, and will be bringing her back in a week for a follow-up. I’m just so glad to have her home; yesterday was so stressful waiting to hear back from the vet! 



Let’s see, what else… I did a bit of gardening/weeding earlier this morning, and I’ll hopefully do more later. Other than that, I plan to keep reading A People’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn. It’s really good so far! 



Oh, and I wanted to share this cool website (Native-Land.ca) that a Facebook friend shared. From the site: “Learn more about where you live. Native-Land.ca is a resource to help North Americans learn more about their local history.” (The Phoenixville library has a book called The Lenape, so that will probably be the next book I check out!)

Peace. :)

  1. That ice cream looks so yummy and the mug!! How adorable! The perfect way to eat some delicious ice cream. Daisy can't resist it either. I'm so glad that Buttons is feeling better and had a quick recovery. I know procedures can be quite traumatic but what a little trooper you have!!

    1. Thanks, Sarah! Daisy really loves to check out what I'm eating, haha! Buttons is definitely quite the trooper! :)

  2. The local high school is Lenape High School. That's where my husband went.

    Cat teeth cleaning sucks! We did one with Toulouse and I felt so bad since it is a big ordeal (since they need to be put to sleep) but the past two check ups the Vet has been able to pop the tartar off her teeth. She is such a trooper which is great that she doesn't have to go through all the stress (and save me some bucks)

    1. Nice! I finished reading the book "The Lenape" -- it's just incredible how little we are taught about the people whose land this used to be.
      Yeah, they recommended that she have another dental procedure in 18 months (there's two other teeth that are iffy but didn't need to be pulled). That's great that Toulouse's teeth are easier to clean now!

  3. Brave Buttons! Cats are really very brave with procedures. And they 100% feel better without any painful teeth in their little mouths.

    1. She definitely feels so much better! She's back to happily rubbing her face against things -- before the procedure, she'd start to, and then hesitate/stop, which was so sad to see! Her first follow-up went well, but they want to see her again at the end of the month just to make sure that where her canine was pulled from has continued to heal well.
