Hi folks, How are you? Our crew is doing well at the moment. We slept in a little bit this morning, so we're all feeling refreshed. Today's big errand is a dentist appointment. Can't say I'm excited about it, but it's just for a regular cleaning, and my teeth aren't bothering me, so fingers crossed everything will be fine. We couldn't stay up for Chicago P.D. last night, so BDH and Little Buddha were wondering if you want to watch it with them later today? You can think about that while we go through the headlines. The guys made coffee,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I struck out again at the bookstore yesterday. There just wasn't anything that seemed like a good fit for BDH and Little Buddha. Of course the guys were totally unfazed by this news. They just smiled and said, "Maybe next week!" The good news is that NBC's "One Chicago" programs are back tonight, although I think it's just for this week, and then it's more holiday programming. It sounds like today's snow has been delayed a little bit, so driving should be okay this morning. I know it's just supposed to be a... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Weekend going okay so far? It's been a rough one on this end. I got my booster shot on Friday, which was exciting. The problem is that it hit me much harder than either of my first two shots. First there were major aches, and then there was a bout of chills last night, which was not fun. I have a mild fever, and I can't remember the last time I had one of those. Goodness. It still beats the alternative, though. However, that means we've cut today's to-do list down to just a handful... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just warning me that, with a handful of exceptions, the high temperatures are about to start settling in the mid 40's, so maybe it's time to break out the heavy clothes. I'm still in a wee bit of denial about it, so we might punt on that until later this week. It's Tuesday, and the guys just finished their book, so I need to find something else for them to read. Fingers crossed there's something good in this week's new releases. Anyway, we'll take care of that later.... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, everyone! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just staring out the window trying to spot the chirping bird. We haven't had one of those in a little while around here. It sounds pretty close, like, right outside the window, so the guys thought they might catch a glimpse, but no luck yet. There are a few things on today's to-do list, and now it sounds like the rain is coming earlier than I expected, so we should probably get to work. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? Is it just me, or did September fly by this year? I don't usually think of it as a month that passes quickly, but it feels like it was just August a second ago. Anyway, no luck at the bookstore yesterday. BDH and Little Buddha say not to worry about it, but I'd love to find them something new to read, and soon. At least NBC's "One Chicago" shows are new tonight. In the meantime, let's get to work. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back! How are you? Everyone here is fine, although we're in quiet mode after my gum surgery on Friday. I'm still sore, and have a bit of a chipmunk cheek, but I already feel better than I did Friday night, so that's progress. Loaded up on plenty of soft foods at the grocery store, and then our crew binge-watched Lucifer until we finally caught up to the sixth season. BDH and Little Buddha make great company, even when no one is talking, so all and all, everything is moving along. However, we missed all of you! Now... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Our week is off to a pretty good start so far. Yesterday's walk home wasn't nearly as long as I imagined, but it was still some good exercise. Took care of most of the errands, but there's a whole new list today. Of course, since this Tuesday, that means it's time for the weekly trip to the bookstore to find something new for BDH and Little Buddha to read. Wish me luck! The other big news is that the Clearing out the Clutter store is back, but it's only open until September 14! This excitement... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Is your week going okay so far? I struck out at the bookstore yesterday. There just wasn't anything that felt like a good fit for BDH and Little Buddha, so that was a little disappointing. The guys said not to worry about it, and that we'll just try again next week. Those two are great at keeping a positive attitude about everything. They also want to give you a heads up that the Clearing out the Clutter store is returning next week, so keep an eye out for that! I see today is going to... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Tropical Storm Henri is gone. It turned out to just be some regular rain that arrived here last night, so that's good. BDH and Little Buddha were getting a little tired of studying the hourly weather forecasts by the end of the day on Monday. With any luck, I'll be able to reward them for their hard work by finding a new release at the local bookstore later this morning. Our schedule is little jumbled after that. Maybe we'll watch some more Lucifer while sitting in front of the fan because of this crazy humidity.... Read more →
