508 – Kitten Cam


Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode, we:

Got our bikes tuned up
In addition to our new treadmill, we wanted to have another movement option so we got our bikes out. We had to take them in because they needed some love after sitting for a couple years.

Kept an eye on wildlife in the yard

Hummingbird Cam

Chad set up a camera outside to keep an eye on the hummingbird feeder which was cool! And then yesterday, the beagles let us know there were cats under the deck. Later, Abby found a kitten on top of the deck. Chad tried to catch it but it ended up under the deck all day. So the hummingbird cam became kitten cam.

Worked with Abby’s trainer
Laura from Connecting with Dogs came out to visit again to help us fine-tune some of Abby’s training. We have to work on her reactivity with the dog next door as well as going back to doing crate games.

Ate out a little more than usual
We went to Double B’s BBQ to investigate the brisket. We got to see our old server, Michelle, and try the food. Then Saturday, we decided to chill at the wine bar instead of run around. Chad ended up trying the Cobb Salad Hot Dog at Ferch’s Malt Shoppe and Grille across the walkway from Vintage 38.

Ruth telling people where to go!

Posted a ridiculous photo to Facebook
Ruth posted a hilarious photo of herself on Facebook which Chad accurately titled, “Ruth Lawson: Telling people ‘where to go’ since 1970.”

506 – Instant Brisket

Welcome to Savoring Our Lives! In this week’s episode we:

Celebrated Shelley Long Appreciation Day
Actually, no. We didn’t. But Ruth got Chad to look up the history of the holiday. Turns out there is no Shelley Long Appreciation Day.

Continued to pretend we were in Vegas

Wild Mushroom Flat Bread at Milwaukee Beer Bistro

For our anniversary, we went out for steak dinner at Mr. B’s Steakhouse. The next night we went out for date night and visited Milwaukee Beer Bistro and then enjoyed tiki drinks at Foundation.

Learned to let go
Chad is letting his membership at Milwaukee Makerspace go. He likes the community but the space itself isn’t matching up with what he’s doing. And then, on Saturday we celebrated our friend Dave’s 55th birthday at a party held by his family. He’s fighting stage four lung cancer so the event was bittersweet for all.

Tried to perfect a brisket recipe
We’ve been trying to come up with a plan to eat better more consistently and Chad’s eating a little more paleo so he thought he’d give an Instant Pot recipe for brisket. The recipe took waaaay longer than we thought. So we ended up calling for pizza.

Aloha! Tiki drinks at Foundation

Started to say hello to summer
Our landscapers are on their way and we just replaced our patio chairs. Now we just need the warm weather to arrive!
