Akemi says that her single big regret about adopting Suji is not getting her earlier in her life.
Bubba’s condition hasn’t really changed much. His cough is unchanged and he has his good and bad days. So, no discernible improvement but, on the other hand, no marked decline either.
Lulu, meanwhile, continues to sport her cone of shame as her paw heals.
She is miserable – and not at all shy about letting me know it. Poor old gal.
Whew! I am exhausted today and feeling old. I actually napped this afternoon like some retired senior – or my longtime writing/producing partner Paul Mullie. A late night in Hamilton last night saw us wrap a little before 11 p.m. We are now officially over halfway through (my plan for) our series! Six weeks left in the shooting schedule for season 3 and then…who knows what the future holds? (Photo courtesy of Anthony Lemke).
Some impromptu purchases this afternoon. Have heard about Few bourbon and have always wanted to sample. Koval, hailing from Chicago, is one of my very favorites so when I saw it, I had to snap up a bottle – along with a bottle of the single barrel oat which I’ve yet to try. And, finally, I elected to check out the Suntory Whisky Toki, a blend of grain and malt whiskies from Hakushu, Yamazaki, and Chita, because I have never had a Japanese whisky I didn’t like. Could this one be the one to break tradition?! Doubt it.
I dedicated much of my weekend to sampling the local fare so that I can properly recommend standout items if any of YOU come to town. After checking into your hotel, head down to Nadege on Queen Street West and order yourself
a the Individual Donut (caramel chantilly, salted caramel cream, crisp praliné wafer and almond shortbread).
Then swing by Nugateau Patisserie for some of the city’s best eclairs. Today, I went pistachio (as is tradition) while Akemi tried the matcha-yuzu.
