It appears many of us couldn’t resist the urge to savor this rainy, fall day with baking. Baking is something I learned to love by helping my mom who did it almost daily. For us. For others. Breads. Cookies. Brownies. Cakes and candy. Any and everything. Always. If she wasn’t really sick, the oven was going. 
I didn’t make this for myself, but when I walked by and saw that buttery, brown sugar crumb topping and knew there was a cream cheese center, I had no choice but to call dibs on the corner piece even though nobody was here yet to steal it from me. 😳People, I have a dessert problem, and it’s bad. #pumpkineverything #fallbaking #givemeallthefood #dibsonthecornerpiece

She’s very hard to see sometimes, and she’s got moves. Just like an assassin or ninja, except she’s much too sweet for that line of work.  #ninjacat #catsinboxes #blackcat

We spent two hours on a boat to see the greenest place either of us has ever been. So many varieties of moss covering everything. It was so beautiful, it almost didn’t look real. Like we walked into a perfect book. As with everything, pictures don’t do it justice. #witchesgulch #wisconsin #wizdells #moss

It’s so lush and beautiful up here. Tons of weathered copper on buildings that are so old and well maintained. Trees popping with color. Lots of natural and city eye candy today. #milwaukee #millerbrewery #wisconsin #churchofthegesu

The softest, funniest, sweetest sweetheart in all the land (or, at least out of our cat inventory, anyway). 🖤

The best part of today was carefully looking through this scrapbook from 1882. 1882! Mostly animals and flowers. Two things that make me the happiest.
Things like this fascinate me. I don’t know you, Miss Lena, but today the book you put together forever ago was opened, smelled, touched, and and very much loved. #vintagebook

Yesterday, I had the second worst migraine I've had this year so far. I don't remember coming home from work or anything that followed. I do remember being at the pharmacy and people asking me if I needed help (911), waking up hours later to Todd with food and care, and dreaming about the Grand Canyon. It was the best part about our trip to Las Vegas, and every bit as magnificent as the Ocean, just in a very different way. The wind comes in and sounds just like the Ocean waves. Pictures don't do it justice. You have to see it to feel it. It's so much more alive and colorful than you can imagine, and someday we're going back to sleep there under the stars. Anyway, here's to those of us that have partners in crime in sickness and health. Adventure seekers, and crawl under the blanketers with us when needed. #grandcanyon #arizona #hooverdam #southrim #therockburglar

It's really amusing to concentrate on breathing and stretching when you hear goats goating at each other. This was a fun way to start the day. When we left, @lindseylubird said "You have little white goat hairs stuck to your lips" which means I miiiight have kissed a couple. 😘🐐🕉#goatyoga #goats #ineedabiggeryardforalltheanimals #iwantthemall
