We got a touch of spring today!

A group of wooden gnomes making and eating pizza.

Some folks watch football. We paint wooden gnomes and make little felt hats for them so they can run a small cafe.

Is this the best seat in the house?

Tonight was one of "those" nights

Tova, Avi and I went for a bike ride.

We started by biking to the grocery store to pickup some salad fixings for a dinner we’re going to tomorrow. At the grocery store we had a little snack and potty break. Because the weather was so nice outside we decided to bike to a nearby playground where we all had a blast. Mid-playground session we got a text from a friend that she and her daughters were headed to an outdoor concert nearby, so we hopped back on to our bikes and rode to meet them.

We caught the tail end of the concert and enjoyed a lovely picnic with some buddies. Afterwards we swung by their house to use the bathroom and get some water. At this point it was nearing 8 and starting to get dark, so, we mounted our bikes and had a cool evening ride home, biking along the back cove under a pink sunset.

We got home to find Bashi, our beloved dog, happily waiting for us by the door. This is always a bad sign. Usually she’s asleep. She sleeps like 80% or everyday (it’s a hound thing, 🤷‍♂️). Inside we were met with one tiny shred of the evidence of her wrong doing (100% our fault). She’d eaten 2 entire bars of 100% dark chocolate…

After a brief scramble and some quick phone calls we coaxed her into eating a bit of food laced with hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting.

This is where we made our first mistake. Rather than immediately take her outside I ran upstairs to grab a hoody…because I’m a sissy and I live in Maine. As I came back down the stairs she barfed a biblical deluge of a barf. I cannot stress how much liquid erupted from our poor stinky hound. It was monumental. As Tova and I stood there, awestruck, Avi happily played with some wooden trains.

After the dazzlement waned a bit I girded my loins (and my feet) and got to cleaning…at which point Avi chimed in do you need some sunscreen daddy!?”

…while Tova and I were bamboozled by barf Avi’s attention had shifted from his toy trains to some moisturizer.

He, our living room rug, and our couch are all now well moisturized. Thoroughly lubricated.

Tonight was one of those nights. It was a blast, it was spontaneous and it was messy. Everyone is cleaned up now, Bashi seems a-okay, and the floor is newly cleaned.

Not a fan of running.

A mistake I made on this mornings run: brining the dog…

She dislikes running very much. The 1ish mile we made it was very slow, and I felt like I was dragging a furry, four-legged anchor. Woof.

Some pros of today: I treat myself to a shave and a haircut, and I figured out what a wholly undocumented bit of code does (and documented it). Some cons of today: coming home to a seriously ill dog, and having to drag a wickedly stinky rug across the parking lot to the dumpster.

So sad that this queen doesn’t live a more comfortable life…

Tonight’s sleeping arrangement may very well prove that Bashi is one of the most patient dogs ever.
