Homemade Dog BIscuits

Yes, I am crazy enough to make homemade dog biscuits, are we even a little surprised? You think I’d stop at pupcakes? Oh no. No, no, no. Not when it’s Edgar’s birthday!

Five! Can you believe it? Five whole years he’s been on this Earth (and three whole years I’ve had him)! How lucky are we?

Homemade Eggnog (& next year)

I remember such a specific Christmas when I felt I had it all together. My head was fully attached and on straight. Gifts were purchased in June and wrapped in November. The tree was bought and put up the day after Thanksgiving. The lights were on the house and lit every night.

I sincerely wonder/hope/pray if my life will ever feel that way again. If the holidays will ever feel that way again. I have great hopes that they will. I understand this is just a busy season in our lives. I also understand that there are positives that can come from this time, that are coming from this time.

I’m taking stock of what I already have and parting with things that no longer move or serve me.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Seth and I are en route to Greenville right now.

I’ve got a list of about a dozen or so places I want to take him in the next week. Food, drink, more food.

The heat is officially on. It’s only set at 65 – but, nevertheless, I’ve succumbed and turned it on.

I’ve had to start my car prior to leaving to have it defrost.

Seth saw flakes and flurries coming home from work the other night.

Homemade Apple Cider (& a change of plans)

Happy first day of October!!!

Homemade Apple Cider

I feel like it’s finally fall! For reals. Because it’s cool and it’s cloudy.

Unfortunately, it was also very wet and rainy, so Seth and I weren’t able to go to a local apple orchard like we’d planned. I was so looking forward to walking Edgar through the pumpkin patch and splitting an apple cider doughnut with Seth (plus, all the Instagram photos ops? Hello! Live for them!).
