  1. Yes, they can be both. Google tortie tabby to see some examples. They can be very pretty cats.
  2. Finding a series you like (The Middle, The Office, MasterChef Jr., etc) can be a real bonding experience if you have similar enough tastes. Trips to the Zoo, the Library, Nature Preserves, hiking in general ... I bought subscriptions for my youngest (we are currently using EurekaCrate and Raddish) and they have been great at providing something to do and for learning new skills. Picking up a hobby (like photography, pottery, painting miniatures, woodworking) that you can do side by side.
  3. Cherokee Purples are fabulous -- my favorite. When you eat a good one, you can really understand that tomatoes are a fruit. I have heard that Paul Robesons are even better, but I didn't get any from my seed started plants this year to compare.
  4. In my hot area people do just what you said, shift the outside activities to early morning and evening. It is not unusual during the summer to find groups of kids at our local park after dark (it's well lit), and many people are out at 5-6 am to walk their dogs before the pavement gets hot. Water activities (swimming, tubing, water parks, water bouncy houses, etc) are also popular. There are a few places that have indoor field-type activities (indoor soccer for example).
  5. Pasta with 15 minute burst cherry tomato sauce. It's good, we've made it several times. My husband loves it, but I cook it a lot longer than 15 minutes. https://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/pasta-with-15-minute-burst-cherry-tomato-sauce-56390060
  6. I like this one the best of the ones I've tried: https://smile.amazon.com/Stainless-Steel-Popsicle-Molds-Free/dp/B083BVB76M/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=stainless+popsicle+mold&qid=1622862836&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzUVUzOVBaTDZJSTdIJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwOTcyNDkwS1E4M00zNzY5TjZYJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA4MzMzMjc5MjM0S0FaNTNCNlkmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
  7. I use Hamama currently too, but have also used a mason jar with a mesh lid. Both work. The Hamama has more on-going costs, since you need to buy the seed quilt. In my climate (very dry) I have trouble finding the right moisture level for the growing sprouts, but if I pay close attention it works well. If I don't, they either wilt or rot. Here's a site with a lot of info and items to consider: https://sproutpeople.org/sprout-kits/
  8. Totally understand! No one wants to go for an emergency visit. A screaming dog does sound pretty urgent however.
  9. Since the symptoms come and go a bit, I would recommend that you videotape as many different episodes of it as you can. Some dogs become very stoic and their limping/pain doesn't show in a vet's office.
  10. Make very sure that you do not use any peanut butter product that has xylitol in it (xylitol is toxic to dogs). You might consider a peanut butter powder like this one, if you want to cut down on fat. https://smile.amazon.com/Premium-Powdered-Peanut-Butter-Farms/dp/B00NQLE5JC/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=peanut+butter+powder+unsweetened&qid=1619107499&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUE4OVNQV0tQSDlLOFomZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA4NjUyNDkzNEFYWVdRTDcxSV
  11. While I love Dave's Killer bread too, since you are looking for something specifically to toast and spread, you might give this some consideration: https://www.leftyspoon.com/2015/04/17/sarah-brittons-life-changing-loaf-of-bread/ I've made it before and I like it quite a bit. It is VERY dense, so you slice it thin and toast it. It would be very nice spread with peanut butter or jam or whatever strikes your fancy. ETA: you probably wanted a commercial option, so the recipe may not appeal, but it was easy to make as I remember it.
  12. I think you need a new bike for her. Learning is hard enough without the extra anxiety about not feeling safe. You might find someone willing to loan you one for a short time (or even give you one) if you ask around or post on local groups.
  13. Can you lower the seat so she can reach the ground more easily? Once the bike is sized correctly, it really helped my daughter when we found a gentle hill she could glide down. That way she didn't have to focus on both learning to pedal and learning to steer and balance. Once she was comfortable gliding down the hill, we added in the pedaling.
  14. Dave's Killer Bread (all the varieties we've tried so far) is delicious and it's our default bread now.
  15. Yes, but it's not cheap! A big chunky knit natural fiber blanket like this works. https://bearaby.com/products/tree-napper We got one for my son for Christmas and he really likes it.
