Warm peanut butter cookies

Tonight I made peanut butter cookies from scratch, and we washed down the warm cookies with cold milk. Heavenly! I mostly followed a recipe from one of our favorite bakeries in Santa Cruz, The Buttery. The recipe was published by the L.A. Times several years ago. I tried to make the cookies a bit smaller…

Piecing it together

Mama and I have been putting together a puzzle featuring Northern California landmarks. Puzzling is a great brain exercise and we enjoyed methodically assembling the border together before moving to the insides. We’re not quite finished, but Mama and I had such fun that it had to be today’s #OneGoodThing! Day 107 of 365. And Day…

Gosling spotting

On a trip to the post office today, we spotted what looked like a few dozen baby geese. The little white birds were hanging out in the rain-soaked, back field of a local junior high school, and we pulled over to take a closer look. Paisley was especially interested, so we didn’t want to scare…

Meeting the artist

Art and live music filled our rainy afternoon. Mama and I met up with friends at a local museum to see a band called Dirty Cello perform. Before the concert, we walked around the Art Museum of Sonoma County and fell in love with the work of Jack Stuppin. I was fascinated with his vibrant oil painting…

Wrapping our faces in lace

We love to do home facials, and tonight Mama and I tried new facial masks by Lace Your Face. These all-natural masks, which were featured recently on SharkTank, hook over your ears so they stay in place (unlike most sheet masks). Each mask can also be used twice. Mama tried the Rejuvenating Collagen mask and…

Now that’s a good cup…

Friends recently introduced us to a local Santa Rosa organic coffee company called Bella Rosa, and we became hooked after the first sip. Bella Rosa specially roasts their beans to be low acid, so they’re incredibly smooth. Mama and I have tried both the Decaf and Morning Star varieties, and we found them significantly easier…

Sweet P’s visitor

Our lovely friend (and fellow Boston Terrier lover) came to see us tonight. Mama and I enjoyed visiting with Jori. And we are always grateful for her help with Paisley’s grooming. Today’s #OneGoodThing was catching up with Jori, plus fresh and clean Paisley cuddles! Day 102 of 365. And Day 833 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!…
