hey, guys! hi!

i know, long time no type but i'm gearing up to come back to the blog in october. 

until then, can recommend with big enthusiasm the pumpkin pie kit kats! surprisingly amazing especially when considering that this is an american flavor and not a japanese one! it's not overly sweet and has a big pumpkin pie spice hit right off the bat. 


i grabbed a bag of these at mariano's. i think they are also at target? keep an eye out, as these are limited time. so good for real!

oh yes!

leff made a video about giardiniera and it is hysterical! 

kind of a slow week

the summer colds don't stop so it was slow around here last week. basically, just packages that contained the best beach blanket in the world lol


and lip masks.


they look hysterical when you use them but, damn, if they don't work.


oh yeah, also got a new pj shirt which is rad af. (but not really, it is just goofy.)


i was pokeballin on saturday when i got an ashhat pikachu.


the light that day was crazy. i only have this picture of it, however. oh well.



notable food:  chicken, cheese and garlic brats on the 4th.


YELLOW WATERMELON!!!!


berries that were supposed to be for pavlova until i realized that it's going to be too hot this week to bake (even at night).


but, best of all, READER I SAID YES!!!


see you next week!

shave ice and urbs in horto

this weekend we hoofed it along the lakeside trail to lawrence. our closest asian grocery closed earlier this year so i wanted to see if it was possible to walk to the one on broadway. (it is.) 

while at argyle, we stopped off at immm for a snack. their shave ice with bread is SO GOOD!






i know that i said giving subq fluids was easier than we thought. it's still not an enjoyable experience. as such, neither of us have had much energy. so you get sky and flower shots.





dat lake tho.

a bit easier than i thought

to date, it has been easier than we thought to administer subcutaneous fluid at home to the cat which is GREAT news. hopefully, i will be back up to speed next monday with new photos.

until then though, please enjoy leff's new short video about our trip to the end of the purple line!

taking another break for a bit?

a lot is going on behind the scenes here at casarl. i'm crash coursing how to make geriatric cats comfortable. it's stressful. i'm tired. everyone at the vet knows me now. you...probably don't want to read more about it. so a break is in order, not only for you but also so i can focus on the little dudes. 

here are a few things that i managed to do between visits to the vet last week. the chris bradley show at mca.




a quick stop at water tower to check out a photography exhibit. here is one of the lions that lives inside.


got a really great key lime shake at m burger.


the interesting marks and tags of the week.




i fucked up a gudetama pudding kit by micowaving it too long. it was still tasty (and my jiji mug was salvaged. yay!)


and i still love the lake.


see you guys soonish. not sure how long i'll be gone? i'll probably be posting on ig sporadically if you need a fix. bye for now.
