Favorites Of The Week

I thought it was going to be impossible to find some new favorites after a week of car and home repairs and following Harper around the yard trying to obtain a urine sample to see if she has an infection, but thankfully I was saved by this wonderful Baby Yoda Valentine’s chocolate.

Sweet little Harper is on antibiotics and feeling better, but

she let me know that from now on I’m to keep a ten foot distance during potty patrol.

It was my favorite week of winter conditions this season with a wonderful combination of cold, snow,

blue skies, artistic frost,

and a lovely warm day that reached 45 degrees.

I know many of us have hit the pandemic wall many times over the last two years, but I was surprised when the many notifications beeping in on Harper’s phone this week

were of the Canadian truckers blocking the streets of Ottawa along with the bridges at the Michigan-Ontario border and many Democratic leaders cancelling mask mandates. Thankfully there is plenty of chocolate and a Super Bowl this weekend to distract me from not only our transition to another phase of the pandemic, but also my brief hit the pandemic wall moments when I want to be flying down the road with a convoy singing East Bound and Down until I find the Back To Normal exit.

  1. It has been a long haul, hasn’t it? Easier for us introverts, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Poor little Harper! Glad she’s feeling better. That Baby Yoda chocolate is so sweet. Bound to make anyone smile during this pandemic. Or any other time. (I’m assuming you watched the last episode of “The Book of Boba Fett. Long live Baby Yoda!)

    1. Thank you and Harper is still trying to decide whether she prefers going to the vet over wearing that outfit!🐾🙂 Harper’s phone has been beeping all day with more pandemic news and I can barely keep up with all the rapid changes. It appears many believe the Back To Normal exit is just around the corner. I have to admit I had an attitude against the Boba Fett series since it pushed back the release of the new season of The Mandalorian, but after your comment I may have found something to binge watch this weekend.🙂


      1. Will be interested in learning what you think. I especially liked the second episode.

      3. Have you watched Snowpiercer on HBO Max? Worth watching if you haven’t.

      5. The series has its soap-operish moments, but man does it address some big issues. All the while grounding the story with vivid characters. For me, very much worth watching. Plus, it has the incomparable Sean Bean. 😉

      6. Sean Bean was the main reason I was going to watch!😁

    1. Thank you and Harper has told me that I’m no longer allowed to use her phone to check news notifications, buy dog outfits or Google dog health symptoms🐾🙂


  3. You have some very beautiful photos! I’m glad that Harper is feeling better, she’s so adorable! You are super adjusted to the cold weather if 45 degrees is warm, wow! 😎

    1. Thank you and I’m really going to miss our latest heat wave when we’re back in the single digits this weekend!🐾😎


  4. Delighted to hear Harper is doing well, poor thing. Sounds like she’s getting her attitude back! Dispiriting to see Canada in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. A few loudmouths being easily manipulated, but not a good look for the more thoughtful majority…
    Great pictures, particularly the Harper shots, and I hope the team you’re favouring in the Super Bowl gets it right!

    1. Thank you!🐾🙂 Yes, sweet little Harper is definitely beginning to embrace her sassy side!! The news coverage has been a big surprise after decades of never seeing Canada covered on our local news, but the headlines will quickly be replaced with memories of the best part of my work days years ago was looking out the office window at the Detroit River and Canada, all the great Maple Leafs and Wings games I attended and all the wonderful things I’ve learned about Canada in the blogging world. Enjoy the Super Bowl and you’re cheering on the Cincinnati Bengals!🏈😁
