Weekend recap: Easter, popsicles, dog in a bowtie

Me + Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney (my elderly Lionhead bun -- also, I'm a little over 26 weeks!)
Greenish pollen is everywhere in Richmond, including my house (see weird greenish tint on bricks, on doorstep, on shutters...).  Chutney is not amused.  I'm sure I could shoop the weird coloring out, but I'm lazy, so NOPE.  You get pollen.
Made popsicles (one batch for people who can drink, and one batch for meeeee)

Put my dog in a bowtie & went to the Easter On Parade.  Because DOGS IN BONNETS AND TIES.

It feels so good to be home, Richmond.  It's kind of weird, really, to stroll down Strawberry Street and grab a soda or something, because it all feels so natural, as though we never left.  Some things moved on, some things stayed put.  But it feels right, like slipping into a cozy worn sweater, or a favorite pair of broken-in shoes.  It's springtime, and it's beautiful, and at least for this moment, things are so, so good.


  1. Yay! You deserve it so hard. I'm so glad.

  2. Don't think I'm going to let a mention of "Sir Reginald, Duke of Chutney" go by without calling it out as a reference to my favorite Disney movie! Allow me to lay some protocol on you.

    1. It's the best!
