Farmers market bounty

Today’s #OneGoodThing was a bountiful trip the farmer’s market with Mama! We brought home fragrant garden roses, juicy peaches and crunchy, sweet pluots, freshly baked croissants and olive bread, goat cheese, salmon cakes, corn, lettuce, and more! Day 230 of 365. And Day 961 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: Fun new stand…

Blinging out Mama’s ride

We recently got Mama a new set of wheels, and today we made them even more awesome by adding a touch of peacock! Mama absolutely loves using her new rollator, because of the freedom and stability it provides. It’s much easier to walk using the rollator than a cane, and there’s a seat whenever a…

Great new chiropractor

Today’s #OneGoodThing was finding a fantastic new chiropractor! Both Mama and I loved Dr. Christina Dumbadse’s approach and adjustment style. Mama’s range of motion improved after one adjustment. I can’t wait for my appointment next week! Special thanks to our awesome neighbor and friend, Ti, who recommended this chiropractic office. Day 228 of 365. And Day 959 in a…

Our shared fortune

Mama and I picked up Chinese food a la Panda Express while running errands today, and we ended up with a bonus fortune cookie. “There will always be delightful mysteries in your life” was our shared fortune. We certainly hope so! Today’s #OneGoodThing was sharing a delightful fortune with Mama! Day 227 of 365. And Day 958 in…

Hot, crispy bananas

We ordered fried bananas along with our yummy Thai delivery tonight, and they were so gloriously hot and crispy that we had to eat them first! The pumpkin chicken curry was also delicious, but it was fun to eat “backwards!” Today’s #OneGoodThing was enjoying hot, crispy bananas with Mama! Day 226 of 365. And Day 957 in a…

Firecracker flowers from seeds

This flower has been an exercise in patience. Mama and I planted it from seeds in March. After more than four months of tender care, we were rewarded with these gorgeous fireworks-like flowers. We refer to them as “Aster Salmon Red” — though they’re technically Aster flowers, of the Salmon Red variety. Today’s #OneGoodThing was enjoying these…

A Burrata picnic

This evening Mama and I enjoyed our favorite Burrata dish as a picnic! We brought it along to see a Shakespeare play performed in The Cannery Ruins in Santa Rosa. Sadly, we couldn’t make it through the entire show, as it was too cold for us, even huddled under blankets. Today’s #OneGoodThing was eating toasted pistachios with…
