Going to bed early

We have a big, exciting weekend ahead of us, but I”m totally exhausted already. So tonight I’m posting a little earlier than I often do because I’m going to bed early! Today’s #OneGoodThing is an early night! Day 199 of 365. And Day 930 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: Roses filling our…

Mama’s new ears

Several years ago, we discovered that Mama can hear our TV much better if she uses a wireless headset receiver. We call this TV amplifier “her ears.” Unfortunately, we’ve had to replace the device every couple years, as it stops working. This happened again recently. In the meantime, it was very difficult for Mama to…

Quirky highlight on my errands

While Mama and I were out running errands today, she requested a detour down one of our favorite streets. Sebastopol’s Florence Avenue is filled with quirky, imaginative sculptures. Mama’s glee and awe as we cruised slowly down the street was perfection. My favorite piece that we saw today is this Frog Prince. The sun sparkling…

Harvesting our breakfast

This morning’s breakfast included a handful of juicy, sweet peaches, picked fresh from our tree.

And Day 927 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: Surrounded…

Paisley’s perfect print

Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s perfect print. Day 195 of 365. And Day 926 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following…

Going crazy with chalk pens

Last summer, we created the “Oh Lovely” specialty cocktail to serve at a summer garden party. After extensive taste-testing with our friend Lisa, we settled on the ingredients when Mama took a sip and exclaimed, “Oh lovely!” We did an updated taste-off with our dear Vashti recently, and decided not to mess with a good thing.…

Surprise visitor

Our friend Jenny called us this afternoon to say she was in Santa Rosa for work. Mama and I were thrilled to get a wonderful, surprise visit! Today’s #OneGoodThing was seeing our friend Jenny! Day 192 of 365. And Day 923 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: Checking off my list 2 years…
