Picture This: Week 32, 2017.

Obligatory prelude: I've done a picture-a-day project for the past few years. Per usual, I debated the continuation of this series, but do appreciate the motivation to capture the ordinary and the connection it provides. It's obviously continuing another week, or until I decided to wrap it up.


August 7, 2017

Copper had his 10th birthday on Monday, and we're now in the terrible 10's stage.


August 8, 2017

Relationships are slowly improving between Henry and Denali.  We're at the point of kind of being in the same room.


August 9, 2017

There's nothing sweeter than sleeping kittens.


August 10, 2017

Denali can jump over the gate and when it was in the door frame, there was enough room for only her to crawl under.  Instead, she tried to climb through, got stuck, and I spent more than twenty minute crying, bleeding, and trying to free her without thinking of if her hips were broken or sawing the gate in half.  She crawled out.  She's totally fine.  I'm going to have at least physical scars.


August 11, 2017

A perfect night in Cleveland included a wine and cheese fest with friends, topped with an Insomnia cookie and perfect weather.


August 12, 2017

Zach found a list of ice cream shops in Cleveland.  We now have a directive.  See also, a few of my many bandaids peeking into view.


August 13, 2017

 I made a door! This took years - actual years.  Most of that time was fear of this project. I learned a lot, and cabinet making it not in my actual future, but I'm confident enough to take these skills to some furniture plans in for the bar.

Breakfast as the esteemed Crazy Eggs - an extension of an actual egg farm - before heading out of Warsaw.


August 1, 2017

Nightstand stacked with what I'm currently reading and what I aspire to read.  I'm looking forward to Vonnegut - I've never read before.  


August 2, 2017

Copper, blending in the mulch and sleeping like his inner wild beast.


August 3, 2017

Denali and a pretty good angle of her creepy long toes.


August 4, 2017

We're nearly at the one-month mark of Denali joining the family, and this is the first time all three fur babies have been in the same room with somewhat positive - or, even better - apathetic - reactions.  


August 5, 2017

Basement progress wasn't as smooth as we'd hoped, but we're at the point in our DIY game when we know when to quit and save ourselves from forced mistakes.  It opened the night to a new Netflix series which we're really enjoying: GLOW.


August 6, 2017

 Exploring Cleveland, courtesy of a Wacky Walk scavenger hunt my mum gifted me for my birthday.

July 24, 2017

The sweetest sleeps start with Henry kneading me into bed.


July 25, 2017

Denali hopped her gate.  I was in the middle of something, so I didn't follow her.  When I went to find here, this is where she put herself.  She seems shocked as Copper also tries to  sense the change without looking.


July 26, 2017

Copper's started waiting for breakfast at the outdoor table, sitting as if he's a human.  He doesn't eat there, but he hops on the chairs to watch and wait.


July 27, 2017

This was a picture of our couch.  I was thinking how much I enjoy our couch, the contrast of the pillows, and Copper crawled his way into the frame.  Zach picked the color of the couch.  It was loud and it took me a month to really not be shocked at seeing it.  Now I love it, I can't imagine it not being that color, or having something neutral, as I always think I want.


July 28, 2017

Copper made himself into the little spoon. All the cats loved him most Friday night.


July 29, 2017

We tried frozen nitrogen ice cream - it was crazy! You pick your flavor, then watch them mix the milk and toppings before freezing it under nitrogen, right there.

 A visit to my sister and her boyfriend's isn't complete without the water skiing show.

Henry is the best at finding a way to do something with as little exertion as possible.  


July 18, 2017

Copper and Henry have been sticking fairly close together as we introduce Denali.  Here there are unnaturally close together when exploring Denali's room, and specifically, her litter.


July 19, 2017

Copper has increased his demand for baby snuggles.


July 20, 2017

Denali's starting to calm down in the family, and we're finally able to get a picture of her that's not blurry.


July 21, 2017

We celebrated by father-in-law's birthday with a day in Geneva-on-the-Lake.  Eddie's Grill was a classic fast food - and SO good.


July 22, 2017

Henry bear with a full belly.


July 23, 2017

 We traveled to Michigan for my grandpa's birthday.  He's such an incredible person to me, in this house that he built for his family that continues to be such a welcoming and quintessential place for me.

As often happens on a return from a trip, this post is inundated with cats.  Alternative titles include: Have you ever seen a cat? I love cats. We adopted a kitten!

July 10, 2017

Henry and Copper knew something was up all weekend, though the kitten lived in the office with the door closed.  They needed extra cuddles.  


July 11, 2017

Copper sees the kitten.


July 12, 2017

Here she is: Denali.  She's a 10-month old with a lot of spunk from the shelter, and we're so hopeful she'll be fast friends with Copper and Henry.


July 13, 2017

Henry and a lemon!  It's days away from being ready for picking, but we have a lemon! And a beautiful Henry with baby blue eyes.


July 14, 2017

Denali learning the snuggle spots.


July 15, 2017

Summer fires with friends are the best.


July 16, 2017

 Snuggle bugs.

Started our anniversary trip in the perfect way for us: bourbon distillery tour.


July 4, 2017

Mammoth Cave National Park was so amazing, so accessible, and exceeded my expectations.  I'm in constant awe of the National Parks.


July 5, 2017

Kentucky.

Interactive art at the bar.

Henry, the number one snuggler.


July 8, 2017

The Cleveland orchestra considers Blossom, an outdoor venue in Cuyahoga National Park, their summer home.  Friends joined us for wine and cheese and it was an incredible night.


July 9, 2017

 We completed a fence for our grill, and it elevated our patio more than I imagined.  I love this little outdoor oasis.

Zoey's face says it all as Lucy yaps. 


June 27, 2017

Lucy goosey.

Extra cuddles for baby boy during a week of dog sitting.

Sweet Henry curling under the aloe.


June 30, 2017

Zoey's recreation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.  Coppery's unimpressed.  


July 1, 2017

Proving she likes all bars, while the basement is under construction, Henry considers the outdoor bar to be the best sleep spot


July 2, 2017

Fencing out the grill so that it can have a permanent location.
