Moose adventures

Moose is my miniature dachshund.

He is the most adorable stubborn little thing and he hates it when I dress him up in outfits.

Luckily for him, I don’t want to be one of those dog owners. On the rare occasion that I do make him wear something, I feel properly ashamed of myself.

Today Moose and I went on a walk by the ocean.

There are always a ton of people out on Sundays in the summer and I always see something interesting. Today I saw a man running with one of those little ice cream carts.

He ran a circle around me, then sprinted towards the bushes, all the while pushing the ice cream cart. Then he looked around all sketch-like and rammed the cart right into a little hole in the bushes. He then proceeded to pull pieces of branch around the cart to hide it from view. As I walked away, he backed out of the bushes looking all dodgy, then ran towards the ocean. What the hell? I wish I had followed him a bit and tried to sort out the mystery of the secret ice cream cart.

Instead Moose and I walked back home where we both had delicious naps.



I just got back from an amazing trip to Hawaii with my parents and brother. I’m probably too old to be going on family vacations, but my family is awesome, so who cares. Plus we were celebrating my parents’ 50th birthdays and 25th wedding anniversary. I think that justifies a sweet family vacation. We stayed just north of Ka’anapali in a condo with a sweet pool. I miss getting up every morning super early to read by the pool while everyone else slept.

I also enjoyed a couple of sunrise beach walks. It was beautiful!

We did a little jet skiiing and a little snorkeling. It was a pretty good time. I wish we had a little more time there to do some exploring. And I wish I had a camera other than my phone. There was some pretty amazing scenery that was just begging to be captured on film.

I miss you, Hawaii! I hope to visit you again soon!
