510 – Outdoor Quota


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

Returned to The Hale House for date night
We were inspired by some new additions to the menu so we returned to The Hale House. The items we chose were unfortunately only meh. But we’re up for going back and trying some of the other new items.

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur

Captured kittens
Kitten fest continued! We put a trap out for the four kittens under the deck and Tuesday night we got the first one. Luckily, we managed to catch the remaining three cats. They all went to MADACC and we know the first kitty has already been adopted.

Chose salads over sandwiches for lunches
We went to Blue Bat Kitchen and Tequilaria for lunch Friday. We had really delicious house margaritas. Ruth had a Korean Beef bowl and Chad tried the Cubano bowl. Earlier in the week, Chad chose a couple deconstructed sandwiches in salad form.

Chad goes bike riding

Were outdoors all day Saturday
It was 90 degrees outside and Ruth planted her flowers and got the lanai set up. Chad went bike riding with his Little Brother. They biked nearly 12 miles in the heat. Then, we went to see our nephew Grant play in a baseball tournament. All that time outside filled Chad’s “outdoor quota” for the year.

504 – Eating Salads


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

Chad saw a doctor for the first time this century
Chad had an appointment with a new primary care physician. His blood work results came in this morning and some lipid panel numbers were a little high. Now Chad needs to eat plants.

Turkey Cobb Salad at Matty’s Bar

We ate salads for Date Night
Chad was glad he ordered a cocktail. And we tried to be healthier and ordered salads for dinner.

We went to the Weird Al concert
We scored second row tickets to the show at the very last minute. Emo Philips opened the show and was surprisingly ridiculously funny. Al and his band did a show full of originals – songs written in the styles of other artists – which was a lot of fun.

Weird Al live in Milwaukee

We ate a lot of pizza
We enjoyed our usual Wineza (pizza and wine) night on Friday even though we were going out with a friend on Saturday for pizza.

Chad went to CypherCon
CypherCon was in Milwaukee this week. Chad got to meet hacking superstars Joe Grand and Ben Heck.
