Staycation in SF

I live in a place people visit for vacation, traveling here from around the world. It is easy to forget this fact when I’m just trying to keep up with the demands of a typical weekday. This week, I’ve been fortunate to have time off between jobs, and I’ve tried to make the most of my staycation by going outside in San Francisco. 

 
Ace and I took a trip to Lands End yesterday. The sky has been unusually free of fog or clouds for the past several days, and yesterday I took in unbelievable views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands, where we hiked on Sunday. Ace took in the smells of the Coastal Trail and had multiple encounters with people fawning all over her, as per usual.

 
I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m really, really good at not working. I’m great at it, actually. If anyone can tell me how not work yet somehow remain housed, I’m open to suggestions. I think Ace would be okay with that, too.


Ace and I joined some friends for a hike in the Marin Headlands today. It was very hot! After our hike, we snoozed on the beach, and Ace huddled in my hoodie against the cold evening breeze. What a nice day.

Catching Up with Your Favorite Boston

I have been terrible at keeping up this blog lately. Let this not reflect poorly upon Ace’s commitment to adventure and mayhem! She has been up to her usual antics recently, including modeling, tugging, and sprinting.

 
In other news, it has been WAY TOO LONG since I posted any of Ace’s product reviews. Here’s a roundup, and I promise to link to them weekly from now on (bad Mama): Ace has hunted the iFetch, packed the K9 Cube, participated in a Frisbee sampling and a durable toy taste test, caught a ride on the Pet-A-Roo, snuggled beneath Molly Mutt’s crate cover, bundled fashionably in Teckelklub’s Fuzzie, and today she tore up PrideBrites toys. Whew, what a busy girl!
