guess what was for dinner.....

Any guesses what was for dinner tonight?

                                                             here are a few clues


                                                          yep, chicken stir fry; delicious

                                                      served with white rice and cantaloupe


Then we took a walk down by the marina where we like to walk Koda; got some great new pictures of benches with views (see new header picture).

This was an oops picture. I was trying to turning the camera on; the button to take the picture is right by the on/off button. I snapped the picture right when the camera came on, LOL.

I kind of like our shadows.

If you look hard enough you can see one of Koda's ears in the bottom of the picture.

His shadow makes him look bigger than he is, LOL.



I hope you all had a great day today. We did. Good service at church, helped out with children's church, took Koda for his car ride (remember he is spoiled) and then the favorite part of a Sunday afternoon, a nap.....except the little stinker (Koda) he kept woofing at me when I was sleeping; he was right by where I was sleeping on the couch and would just woof when I would look at him.......Not sure why he was doing that, maybe he wanted me to play with him?

And then of course dinner that was delicious and a walk and now onward to a new week.

May it be a good one for you and yours!

Nice header pic!! And stir fry -- you can't go wrong with stir fry! Looks delicious!
Koda seems quite a character. My cat likes to sit and stare at me and paw my face in the morning, as a way of saying "Get up, human. I'm ready to start my day". ;)

Glad you enjoyed your stir fry. (Actually, as long as you're not eating Bear steaks or the like, I'm happy.)

So, Koda didn't want to have he his nap, and he didn't want you to have yours. Here's a suggestion; perhaps you have a spoiled dog there. Only perhaps, though. LOL

This was my last Sunday serving Knox Church. Then closed for July (while we worship with Third Avenue). Come August, I'll be back in my accustomed pew at Knox. Unless something changes. Which is always possible; too many people know where I live.

Yay for stir fry !!!
Koda is so cute & I love the shadows of you all. I love that Koda seems part human we had a dog growing up like that.

Stir fry sounds yummy.

I like your new header picture.

Shelly said...

Gosh, that dinner sounds good! Love the pics- Koda's shadow makes him look like a Shetland pony. Too cute!

Rita said...

That stir fry looks scrumptious!
I wonder why Koda didn't want you to take a nap? What a killjoy--LOL!
Have a super week. :)

I noticed the new header pic right away! Another bench I would love to sit at...I love being near water. It is good to be back; I tell my kids the technology break is good for them...probably good for me too. :) thanks. Be blessed today!

Seriously Though said...

I was going to say I really like all the different benches with a view. I love seeing Koda there in the photo with the stir fry. He is so cute.

Linda said...

I also noticed the new view from the bench right away! Beautiful! The stir fry looks delicious! I can hear, smell, and taste it in my imagination! Oh is that good!

banning brewd said...

mmm...i haven't made stirfry in awhile...
i like your new bench...i bet it's nice to sit back and watch the boats...

Jeanie said...

I like the new picture. It sounds to me like Koda thought nap time should have been play time.....or maybe you forgot to give him a scheduled treat. :)

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I think Koda must be waiting for a sample of the stir fry! He's such a cutie.

Love the oops picture! The shadows are interesting ... I'm going to have to be on the lookout for photo ops of shadows! ;-)

rmslil said...

Here we are Monday again! I love your new header and the shadow picture. It is wonderful. Dinner sounded pretty wonderful too! I didn't get my nap in yesterday, but I did manage to sleep in this morning. Hope your Monday is a great one!

Dana said...

Sounds like a perfect day--well, besides the barking. ;)

Your stir fry looks fantastic! I may have to put that on the menu this week.

Have a great Monday!

Deanna said...

Sound like the best kind of day ever. Woof!

Stir fry is one of my favorite meals. I might just have to fix that for supper tonight!

Hope you have a great week.

Ahhhh the food looks delicious!!!!! Love koda looking up at the cabinet/stove.

I have to admit, music was too loud in church, my hearing aids off, tied to follow the scripture on my kindle. NADA with the search engine.

Decided to read something spiritually up lifting, a few pages of Treasure Island. LOL

Mixed vegetables? I love that too and I avoid rice these days. I eat it plain with either fish or chicken. I'm still trying to lose a little more pounds and the weight loss is getting more and more conspicuous too. I hoped you had a good day too after the Sunday service. :D

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love the new view! Your dinner looks delicious. Yes the shadow shot is very cool. Sounds like a great Sunday.

Karen said...

Love the photos! Chicken stir fry sounds delicious.

Betty WSch. said...

LOL! Koda's shadow looks like a donkey with the long ears. :)
The stir fry looks really yummy. Will have to do that this week!

Lynn Proctor said...

wow--that looked awesome!!

Kelly said...

Stir fry! Yum! Looks so delish! Now I know what I'm having for dinner at some point this week! :-)

I gave you an award yesterday! I just forgot to tell you, because I'm brain-dead like that, sometimes. :-)

Come on over and claim it!

Danielle L Zecher said...

Your stir fry looks delicious! That seems like a great place to walk Koda too. He needs to learn the importance of napping!

Chatty Crone said...

What time WAS dinner and you didn't ask me over? It looked delish!

And I love the way you captured Koda's shadow!

Marianne said...

I'm not much of a stir fry person, but that looked yummy. And I think your shadow pictures are sort of artsy.

JosephAlsarraf said...

Yum! I don't think I've ever had that, it looks good!

I like the new header and oops picture, lol!

I think Koda was just wanting to say hi. Simon likes to scratch and lick the blankets when I try to go to sleep.

You too!!!! : )

Tamera Brose said...

It all sounds like a great day and good food. I like the oops picture and the new bench.

Linda B. said...

Love the deep blue view! Compliments to the chef. And funny with the super-sized shadow. Great start to your week!

Toriz said...

The walk and nap sound nice, but I'll skip dinner. ;)

Maybe Koda just decided he didn't feel like napping?

Patrick said...

Unquestionably the neatest tidiest counter tops I have ever seen in a food preparation area! How about an entry about how to prepare and cook stir fry without anything to clean up. :)

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick

SweetMarie said...

I LOVE your new header! So beautiful! That dinner sounds yummy. Koda is adorable as always! Does he stick his head out the window on car rides? Doggies are so much fun!

Jane said...

We had a stir fry last night and everyone enjoyed it!! The weather looks awesome there ;)

Hollie said...

I love the new header too!! I could sit there for a very long time!! Yum!! Your dinner looks delicious!!

Janice's footsteps said...

Love stir fry I guessed it with just the 1st pic showing lol, I love your new bench picture you are truly blessed in the area in which you live and explore.

Karen Greenberg said...

That dinner looks delicious! I love how big Koda looks in his shadow.

The Brown Recluse said...

Maybe Koda just didn't want you sleeping! lol

I like your new header...Bench With a View is a very good theme!

Your stir fry looks a lot prettier than mine ever does. I'm guessing it tastes better, too.

justsoyouknow said...

Looking at the food i suddenly feel hungry when it fact i just had my dinner. This is called gluttony. lol.

Looks like Koda is keeping a close eye on the cooking!
