Head in her bowl

We ran out of dog food a few days ago, but the air quality was so terrible that I scavenged the little sample bags from our emergency preparedness kits to feed our girl. Despite continued unhealthy air quality, I could no longer put off leaving the house to buy more. Paisley was thrilled with her…

Peek-a-boo cuddles

Mama wasn’t feeling well today, so Paisley made it her personal mission to provide comfort and cheer. Our sweet blanket burrower even rushed back from our afternoon walk to resume her cuddling position. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s peek-a-boo cuddles! Day 311 of 365. And Day 1,042 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: The…

Afternoon walk in our neighborhood

Today’s #OneGoodThing was taking a lovely, afternoon walk in our neighborhood with Mama and Paisley. It felt good to go for a walk again, after all the walking of our trip. All three of us were happy to stretch our legs after jet lag and bad colds took their toll. As a bonus #OneGoodThing, here’s a beautiful…

Loving my new haircut

I woke up feeling shaggy and messy, so I called my salon and scored a same-day appointment with my wonderful stylist. I’ve been losing a lot of hair lately, and it left me feeling down. It is amazing what a new haircut and an hour with this kind, sparkly spirit can do for me. Today’s #OneGoodThing is loving…

A lovely way to vote

A fun dream

The California MegaMillions lottery went up to one BILLION dollars jackpot today, so Mama and I decided we had to play along. It’s rare that we buy lotto tickets, but you can’t win if you don’t try. Today’s #OneGoodThing was playing the odds with Mama! Sadly, we didn’t win, but it was a fun dream! Day 292…

Smooth infusion day

It was about as smooth of a day as I could have hoped, given that I was receiving my 11th chemo infusion treatment for Crohn’s Disease. Thanks to a combo of jet lag and nerves, I woke up early enough to take a seated shower without rushing, and then get back in bed to recover…
