It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made delicious slow-cooker beef stew for dinner tonight…

And it was really delicious. 😀🍜❤️

Apple Spice boxed lunch.

There were a handful of leftover boxed lunches from Apple Spice after some meetings in our building today. I grabbed an extra Chicken Club boxed lunch…

The Chicken Club sammich was really tasty and the lunch came with a bag of chippers, a pickle, cookie and an Andes mint…

As far as boxed lunches go, it was a really good boxed lunch. 😀🥪🥒🍪❤️

Good morning from Northside.

Taken with Instagram. 😀🌄❤

Working from home.

I was feeling a bit under the weather when I woke up this morning so I decided to work from home today. And the buddies hung out with me all day in our office. I grabbed a couple of photos via our office OscarCam

And then I snapped these while sitting at the desk…

They’re pretty cute. And pretty darn good too. I managed to get quite a bit of work done. 😀💻🐶❤️

Pause for paws.

On our way home from lunch with our friends, we stopped at PetSmart in Oakley to pick up some supplies for our new buddy, Mack. We got him some Mack specific food and treats and a liner for his crate. We also brought home a new large dog bed and a bunch of new toys. When we got home, Oscar immediately claimed the majority of the new toys and the large new dog bed…

“Mack who?” Oscar’s a little ding-dong who is not a big fan of sharing. But remember to check out Oscar’s Instagram. We’re still pondering if Mack is going to get his own Instagram as well. 😀🐶❤️

Post Office Place.

This afternoon we met our friends Scott and Kathy and their kiddos Grace and Sam at Post Office Place  (POP for short) in Columbia Tusculum for lunch…

And that’s the last photo I took. 😕 We got to chit-chatting and eating and I completely forgot to snap any more photos. We shared POP’s Garlic Herb Bruschetta Goat Cheese Dip with pita bread which was awesome. We also tried some of their Buffalo POP Wings and we shared an East End Classic pizza with pepperoni, onions, green and red peppers, mushrooms and black olives on a classic red sauce. And those were really good too! Afterward, we stopped at Streetside for a beer. The next photo I took was of the Girl Scout cookies Grace delivered to us…

It was a fun afternoon. Sorry I completely blanked on taking photos of POP. It’s a really fun place with great food. If you next yourself in Columbia Tusculum, be sure to give them a try! 😀🍕🐔🍺🍪❤️

Meet Mack.

This is Mack…

This afternoon we adopted Mack from SPCA Cincinnati Northside. He was taken in as a stray. He’s a purebred pointer and we were told he’s about 3-ish years old…

Every day for the last two years, I’ve received emails from with all dogs that are up for adoption around the Greater Cincinnati area. Every email is packed with all sorts of beautiful dogs. But none of them really spoke to me. Occasionally I would send forward one along here or there to Genifer. I sent an email about one other dog, Parker. He was a foster and his foster family decided to keep him. I saw Mack in the email and after showing him to Genifer, sent an email to SPCA inquiring about adoption. When I didn’t hear anything back from them, we got up this morning and went over to SPCA to see if Mack was still there. He was. We filled out the paperwork and brought him home. And now we have a new buddy…

Oscar’s definitely been letting him know who’s boss and who runs things around here. And Mack doesn’t seem to mind. He seems to be very easy going. He’s full of energy. But very easy going and carefree…

Being a stray, SPCA gave him the name Mack. We’re in the process of getting him to understand his name. But he listens and responds well when he knows you’re talking to him. He’s neutered, microchipped, completely housebroken, doesn’t pay any mind to the cat, handles all the stairs like they’re nothing, has done okay so far in his crate and already knows sit. We got him a harness instead of a collar. As a result, he doesn’t pull that much on walks. I’ve been able to walk him just fine, recovering hip and all. It’ll take a little bit of work for all of us to get on the same page and figure out a new routine. But that’s what makes it interesting. And 859 days after Milan passed away just like that, we finally have a new buddy in our house. 😀🐶❤️

Look up in the sky.

There were some really pretty clouds this evening when we were out walking Oscar…


We run on Dunkin.

Genifer was out of K-Cups so I picked some up from Dunkin Donuts on Court Street on the way home and I also brought home some Munchkins…

It’s been a little while since I’ve had me some Munchkins and they were every bit as good as I remember them. They say that “America runs on Dunkin.™” And this weekend, so will we. 😀🍩☕️❤️

Physical therapy.

I’ve been going to physical therapy for my hip twice a week at The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center…

It hasn’t been bad. Every session gets a little bit harder but in baby steps. I’ve heard people describe their physical therapy as physical torture. But mine seems to be really helping. I’ve already moved from two crutches to one crutch to a cane. And I can walk around the house unassisted without any additional support. I can take stairs one at a time again instead of having to put both feet on each and every stair. I can see progress being made. And it hasn’t been that bad at all. It’s a bit sore afterward. But the next day, it feels better than ever. I hope it stays that way. 😀🏥❤️

    Scarves are the one thing I don't mind wearing. New toys. New bed. Sitting on the arm of the office sofa watching out the window for squirrels in our backyard.
