An unexpected visitor.

There have been some really pretty sunrises lately…

Good morning from Northside…

The days are definitely getting shorter…

It’s Friday! To celebrate, we shared our crowler of Vanilla Oatbama oatmeal stout from Presidential Brewing up in Portage, Michigan…

Their beers were really good.

Somehow a praying mantis made its way into our house…

We wanted to get it outside before Mack tried to eat it…

I think Praying Mantis are pretty neat. And we don’t seen them very often. I think this is the third one we’ve seen since we moved into our house. And it’s the second one we’ve seen recently.

After all that excitement, we finished The Haunting at Bly Manor. It was good. But not at all what we were expecting it to be. We were thinking ghosts and things that go bump in the night but it turned out to be just a pretty tragic, sad love story. The best part was the little girl Flora always proclaiming everything to be perfectly splendid.” 😀🌄⛅️🍺🪲📺❤️

Pure Michigan.

We drove up north for a long weekend in Michigan to visit my parents…

Even though we’re still firmly in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic, we still managed to get out to do a surprising amount of stuff…

We sampled some terrific beers that my parents gathered on their travels like New Belgium’s Atomic Pumpkin. We went out to VerHage Fruit Farm and Cider Mill for donuts and fresh apple cider. We had lunch at Bell’s Eccentric Cafe and Presidential Brewing and COVID Carryout dinner from Four Rose’s in Plainwell. We also got Biggby Coffees and Sweetwater’s Donuts. And most importantly, we got to hang out with my parents because it’s been way too long since we’ve seen them. It was a great weekend. We hope the powers that be can curtail the pandemic soon and we can get up to Michigan more often next year. 😀🗺️⬆️❤️
