T+G forever in concrete.

Seven years ago, the Reds lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Pirates…

We didn’t walk the dogs up to the top of the hill at the end of our street this morning. They were working on the end of our street at the bottom of the hill so we went the other way.

Usually, during the day there is one dog on each floor. Oscar hangs out on the first floor most of the time. Mainly because he refuses to go up and down the stairs. So he’ll hang out on whatever floor you put him on…

Bear hangs out with me in the studio on our second floor. He sits behind me while I’m working during the day. But he follows me wherever I go. He’s like my fuzzy shadow…

And Mack sleeps pretty much wherever he likes…

He hangs out on the third floor a lot. Or he also likes sleeping in the front bedroom on the second floor.

This afternoon they poured the concrete out in front of our house to replace our sidewalk. And as soon as they were done and moved on down the block, I went out to write our initials in the concrete…

I’ve never had the opportunity to write anything in concrete before. They smoothed it over once. But I went back out to rewrite our initials…

Later this evening, we slowed down to grill…

As soon as we got inside with all of our delicious grilled food, it started raining. And when we went to take the dog on their walk after we finished eating, there was a beautiful rainbow up at the top of the hill at the end of our street…

Good evening from Northside…

And good evening from our backyard…

It was a really good Tuesday, as far as Tuesdays go. 😀🌄☁️🌈🐾❤️

Tiny little worlds.

We’ve noticed this little plant growing through a crack in the sidewalk while we were walking the dogs the last couple of days…

We’ve been calling it the little world. We’ve wondered if there is little life living in there that think they are living in a vast wilderness only to discover their vast wilderness is just a small blip on sidewalk leading up to a forest…


Still, the resilience of nature is pretty incredible. It reminds me of the powerful TV spot about Derrick Rose narrated by Tupac Shakur. 😀🌳❤️

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature’s law is wrong it
learned to walk without having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.

–Tupac Shakur
