Caturday Report

 Hello everybody and everykitty!  Bella here with LAST week's Caturday report (what can I say, the help around here is abominable!)

Here I am, inspecting the things that came home from church last Sunday.  These are the mats that The Shepherd took to put his bonsai on.

But first I have to tell you about the Sheep & Goat day at the local Farm Co-op store.

The week before, early on Saturday morning, The Shepherd and Mummy loaded one of the vishus sheep and her screaming brat into the white trailer and took them away - turns out it was only for a few hours - they were the stars of the Sheep and Goat day at Ferndale Cenex.  Mummy took her spinning wheel and sat inside and entertained the peoples who came there to buy food for their animals. The Shepherd was impressed at how well behaved Donna and little Makks were with all the people around them. 

Last week, like most Sundays, The Shepherd and Mummy went to church.  The Shepherd is choir director and because it was Mother's Day, he was in charge of the service, and the choir sang a bunch of songs for the people. 

This is a picture of the garden that The Shepherd made at the church.  I think it looks very snoop worthy, but Blaine, where they go to church is a too long car ride away for me and Mummy would be afraid that I might get lost!

These are the bonsai trees that The Shepherd took for decoration of the front of the church.  He was mad at Mummy because he says this picture is "of the back" of the plants - she thought it looked nice anyhow. 

The little town of Blaine where they go to church is right on the border between the US and Canada.  The white building in the center of the picture is called The Peace Arch and it sits in the middle of a very beautiful park that is right on the border. 

Mummy was in charge of "snacks" after church last week.  She made these things called "wraps" - meats and veggies wrapped up in flour tortillas -

First she put a layer of a mix of cream cheese and caesar salad dressing on the tortilla.  Then she put down a handful of spinach leaves.  Then she put about a half a cup of what she called Greek Salsa-a yummy mix of chopped artichoke hearts, sliced black olives, sliced green olives (pimento stuffed), diced celery, diced English cucumber, shredded carrot finely chopped green onions, red bell pepper, Feta Cheese,  garlic, Cavender’s  Greek seasoning, some Pampered Chef Greek Seasoning Rub, a couple of shakes of Pamp. Chef Italian seasoning and some pepper, some Best Foods Mayonnaise (you probably could use plain yogurt. But she didn’t have any) AND a couple of tablespoons of white wine vinegar.  Rolled it all up and wrapped it up in some waxed paper (that's why the wraps in the picture look kind of "shiny" - she forgot to take the waxed paper off before she took the picture - Meow out loud, Mummy)  One of the ladies at church told her it was the best thing she'd ever tasted.  Mummy was pleased because she thought they were very tasty too.  She also had Ham Salad wraps and Chicken Caesar salad wraps, egg salad, homemade Roasted Red pepper hummus, bagels, some chips and a bowl of sliced apples and oranges.  Whew, that was a lot of food!  Plus they had a chocolate cake to celebrate the college graduation of their choir accompanist!  She was so tired she wanted to come home and take a nap, but she had to go to town to do the family laundry.  It was a very busy day! 

So that's last week's Caturday report.  Maybe there will be time to do another one tomorrow -  Hope you all have a good Sunday!  XOX  Bella

What a nice spread of food you provided! And I love the trees even if it was the back of them. :-) Thanks for 'alerting' me to the Katnip Lounge. I've been lurking over there enjoying the back story. It's nice to see I'm not the only crazy--plus I'm picking up some good ideas. Bella is so pretty by the way.
