Clean sheets, clean bodies

Today’s #OneGoodThing is the glorious feeling of slipping into bed with fresh sheets, a feeling made lovelier after a shower. This is even greater because Paisley had a bath too! Day 47 of 365. And Day 778 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)! 1 year ago today: My first standing shower in…

Glorious changing of the door

Nearly two months ago, we told you about our great new dog door solution. We expected it would take 3 to 4 weeks in total from order to installation, but it had several hiccups along the way.
