Catching Up With Peanut

Oh, man.  Peanut hasn’t been on the blog since before Christmas.  Before Christmas!!!  That has to be remedied.  Lucky for us, he was particularly cute this weekend. Exhibit A: Peanut in the dark Exhibit B: Peanut soaking up some sun Is it just me, or does he look extraordinarily lengthy in his sun-soaking posture? Right…

Cooking for One (and Peanut Being Cute)

Back in the single gal days, I didn’t cook a whole lot.  But then I met Scott, and I realized that the man I liked loves to eat good food, so I learned how to cook for him.  Good thing I got motivated, because now that I know how to cook, dinner is a whole…

Happy Couch + Window (+Peanut) Reunion

Well, we’re slowly but surely getting a grasp on “normal life” after vacation life.  I think I like jet lag a lot less at 30 than I did at 21.  But you know who’s really really happy? Peanut. He was treated like a king while we were gone, so he wasn’t exactly sad for the…

Long-distance Peanut

Take Your Dog to Work Day!

Peanut isn’t allowed into the library (unless he suddenly learns how to be a service dog and acquires a blind or otherwise in-need-of-a-service-dog owner), but his heart was in the right place for Take Your Dog to Work Day. I think he thought if he had his hockey tie on, nobody would notice that he’s…
