Arrow's new friend

Joanne's sister Jenny adopted a beagle...meet Sally!

The beagles joined some knitting ladies at Opera in the Park this weekend. It was a lovely afternoon...knitting, listening to arias while noshing and petting two beagles! Sally is smaller than Arrow, and she has cute freckles on her paws. The beagles were very busy...

They took turns napping...

I made apple cardamom cupcakes for the occasion, with apples from a fellow teacher's apple tree.

The cardamom seeds I ground up in the mortar and pestle were so fragrant that I decided to use only half the amount, and I think the resulting cupcakes were spiced just right. I filled them with caramel and used my favorite cream cheese in the frosting...a tasty combination...Sally seemed to think so!

Can I have a bite?
