Smelling the flowers

I had just gotten home from the gym this morning when Felix meandered in, hoping for a snack. I looked down and immediately noticed a big splotch of yellow on his back. I immediately thought “great, one of rotten pups has finally peed on Felix.” I knelt down, picked him up to carry him to […]

White Bean and Garlic Dip and the Yucky Side of Moving…

Clive looks as if he’s pleading for you to take him away from us. I can’t say that I blame him. The boxes have completely taken over the house and it’s stressing poor Clive out. The cats on the other hand love it, and every box has dents in the middle where the cats have […]

The Boys are Sleeeeeping…

The boys outnumber Libby and I, which makes it easy for them to hog the couch and assemble themselves into the weirdest sleeping positions. Why don’t they cuddle with me like this?

Neil’s “Bun for One”

After yesterday’s post, Neil and I decided to throw together dinner from whatever we could find in the pantry. While I came up with a salad of greens, fruit and nuts with raspberry dressing, Neil whipped up his own quickened version of Bun Cha Gio (say that ten times fast) for one, lovingly now renamed […]

Our Healthified Thanksgiving Feasties

We had an incredible Thanksgiving down in Springfield with Neil’s family. Three wonderful days in the country with little connection to the outside world. Even though we are active bloggers, we value the precious little time we get off  and really took the holiday as a time-out for ourselves. We made no new blog posts, […]

A Proper Sun Cat

Grilling in the Fall: BBQ Chicken Pizza

As you may have heard, we did not make it to Challenge #5 of Project Food Blog. We had a lot of fun, but we were kind of relieved to get out when we did. Our life is insanely busy enough, and the race to get a contest-worthy post done on the weekend was leaving […]

National Dog Day

In honor of National Dog Day, I thought I’d post pictures of Clive’s latest wardrobe addition, a t-shirt we picked up from Glacier Nat’l Park last month. It’s a toddler t-shirt, which is why it fits so funky, but he doesn’t mind. He likes wearing clothes. He struts around the house like he’s one of […]

Our Fourth of July Weekend

Paint!? Okay, let me explain. This weekend we got a lesson in making plans. Sometimes the plans you make are not the plans that happen. Sometimes what you think is cement is water, and all you can do is make the best with what you’ve got. Our original plans to head south to Springfield for […]

Clive + Lifejacket

Clive is going on his first camping trip this weekend. We’re headed to Truman Lake near Lake of the Ozarks for a weekend with the family. Since we haven’t seen him swim yet, we’re erring on the side of caution and making him wear a life jacket we picked up from our favorite pet haven […]
