The bright side of a colonoscopy

I had a colonoscopy this morning, which means there’s no getting around that today (and last night) has been long and pretty awful. In case you haven’t done this before, you have to drink FOUR LITERS of gag-inducing laxatives. Yeah, it sucked. I’ve been having pretty severe GI issues for more than a year now,…

Going even shorter

I got the shortest haircut I’ve ever had in my entire life today and I love it! This year has been a series of transformational short and then shorter haircuts for me. I had been very attached to my long locks, but now I feel addicted to going shorter. I’m even considering a short buzz…

Time spent together

Neither Mama nor I were feeling very well today. We ended up having a very quiet day spent resting together. Our day may not have been terribly exciting or filled with great things to share, but I’m grateful for our time together. This time of year — nearing the anniversary of Mama’s diagnosis — always…

Weird things

I saw this great illustration today about weird things that make you happy as an adult. I found it so funny/true, I had to share. Today’s #OneGoodThing is weird things that make you happy as an adult! As special bonus #OneGoodThing, today is the birthday of one of my very best friends and I’m so glad…

Mud bath and a milkshake

Mama and I had mud baths in Calistoga today! We’ve been coming to this adorable Wine Country town every few years since I was a little kid, and we love it! We had a Groupon so we tried out a new place. It was cute, funky and friendly. We enjoyed our adventure. After the mud…

Sweet visitor

Our friend Trisha stopped by for a visit today and Paisley fell in love. Luckily, Trisha loves dogs. We haven’t seen Trisha since last summer because she lives far away, but we loved getting to catch up with her today. Today’s #OneGoodThing was our sweet visitor! Day 141 of 365. And Day 507 in a row! 1…

Calla lilies return

These beautiful calla lilies finally blossomed in our front yard today! They die away in winter and we never know if they’ll really come back or not. We’ve been enjoying following their progress as they sprouted. Today’s #OneGoodThing was the return of our beautiful magenta calla lilies! Day 140 of 365. And Day 506 in a row!…
