Scruffy no more

I’ve been a bit scruffy on top lately; my hair decided to do a wild, slightly electrocuted look most of the time. So I was really looking forward to today’s cut, especially since I had postponed it for few weeks because I’d lost some hair. The hair loss was a side effect from my Crohn’s infusions…

A year of pure Paisley love

Today marks one year since Mama and I adopted our sweet Boston Terrier, Paisley. She has easily been the best part of these last 12 months. This photo collage of our adorable girl throughout the year showcase her loving personality. Each day we are more and more enamored with her hilarious expressions and wiggly butt!…

Help from up high

Last winter’s relentless rain wrecked our home’s roof, so today we had a roofer out to take a look. Sadly, he confirmed that our roof cannot be fixed and must be replaced. After gently delivering the bad news, he was very kind to tell us about a gutter problem he discovered and then help us…

Midge is no mensch, but she’s funny

In our quest for binge-worthy shows, Mama and I recently got hooked on “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” It’s an Amazon Prime Exclusive and it’s very funny — and very Jewish! So we loved it! Miriam “Midge” Maisel is a quirky, persistently cheerful, 1950s New York housewife, whose shmuck of a husband leaves her in a spectacularly…

Cold, but fun market day

By December, Mama and I usually stop going to the farmers market. We love to go throughout the summer, but it’s just too cold for us now. Also, we’re not really morning people anyway. But today we went because we’ve been craving fresh, local fruit and we wanted to see our favorite vendors. We bundled…
