We meet again.  I’ll be honest, writing these weekly wrap ups feels very deja vu when there’s so little changing from week to week, but I am trying to keep as much consistency in my work and life as I can.  Cabin fever has absolutely hit over here, but we can always find some things to chat about, right?

I shared Wednesday that I finally painted the laundry room.  I knew I wanted to paint it when we moved in, but we painted and touch-up painted so much that I gave myself a break.  I called the paint store and they were mixing colors, taking payment over the phone and would deliver your paint curbside.  So I painted the room Benjamin Moore White Dove, got my magic eraser after all of the cabinets and built-in desk and plan on buying a cork board and doing this DIY.  It feels so fresh and clean in there now.  I’m so proud!  I also want to paint our bedroom, but it’s obviously a bigger space and I’m going to be honest… my back hurts.  So I bought the paint for it, but I’m giving myself a breather.

Bailey’s 13th birthday is actually this Sunday.  I can’t believe I have a teenager, ha!  Although in big dog years she’s around 96 years old.  God bless her.  She has lived in Oxford, Mississippi + Jackson, Mississippi + Santa Ana, California + Orange, California + San Francisco, California and now Athens, Georgia.  It’s not always easy moving and driving all over the country with an 80+ lb dog (perhaps a large dog wasn’t Christian’s wisest choice), but she sure has had a lot of adventures.  Lakes, beaches, dog parks, vacations, cross country drives and now that she finally has the big backyard I’ve always wanted for her, she just wants to sleep!  I usually bake her this doggie cake, but this year Christian is grilling her a steak.  I think she’ll love it.

Do you do anything special for your senior pets?  Once Lula passed away, it really made me look at Bailey differently.  As much as I wish pets could live as long as humans, we don’t have forever.  So I try to sneak her some extra treats!

  1. Oh my lord, this picture of Hudson and Bailey!! BE STILL MY HEART! So sweet.

  2. Happy 13th Birthday, Bailey!!

    When my yorkie got into the late teens, my mom would give her doggie ice cream! She loved it initially, but eventually she lost interest

  3. I just love your content (including the picture of Hudson and Bailey) and I love how you are still DIYing. We are about the same age and I have missed DIY projects! I’ve found myself going back to the blogs I first started following years ago and searching through their archives. Thank you for the inspiration!

    1. I love that!! I always find such satisfaction in a DIY gone well. But there’s no time like a quarantine, #amIrite!?

  4. Ahh! I didn’t realize Bailey and my birthday was only one day apart! Happy EARLY BIRTHDAY Bailey Boo!! Hope she has the best day and Hudson is the cutest. 🙂

    Happy Weekend KittyKat!

  5. My cat Haley passed away the day after Christmas last year. She was 19. It would have been her 20th birthday last week! I still miss that cat and all her quirks.

    1. Oh wow – what a long life that is incredible! This quarantine has really made me miss my cat, Lula. We don’t know her age because I found her in a parking lot, but she was so special. Made me fall in love with cats!
