Nectar of the gods

Mama and I fell in love with pear juice while we were traveling in Italy and so we were thrilled to find it available back home in California. This Santa Cruz Organic Pear Nectar doesn’t disappoint. It tastes like drinking a sweet, juicy pear, but even better. Mama and I could not stop exclaiming over…

A neighborly day

Our neighbor Salvatore helped me replace our broken gate latch and assemble a carport today. The gate latch has been an ongoing nightmare with constant repairs, leaving us trapped inside or locked outside on regular occasions.

Life has repeats

As Mama and I sat together in the living room and rehashed our day to find the joy, we realized that it was highly productive but rather boring. “I’m pretty sure I’ve already written a post like that,” I told Mama. Four years in on this daily #OneGoodThing project, it is getting harder not to…
