Good morning friends and happy friday!
Hope you are all gearing up for something fun this weekend! We’re likely staying home and enjoying our backyard since the weather has finally warmed up in these parts.
Here are my highs and lows for the week! I’d love to hear yours as well. Feel free to leave me a comment below telling me what you’ve been up to this week.
Our fig trees have arrived! I’m so excited that our trees are finally home. We had them housed temporarily at my in-laws farm so that we could settle into our house. They are pretty sensitive plants and moving them twice within one year would have likely killed them. They are here and are doing wonderfully.
Milk cake. I made this cake this week and it turned out delicious. It’s a super easy recipe – one of those that you will likely always have the ingredients for. So moist and delicious – especially with a nice warm cup of tea.
TTBH went self-hosted. Last weekend Mer helped me transfer TTBH to bluehost so I could have a self-hosted wordpress account. It was a little stressful and I didn’t necessarily understand what he was doing but it’s done and so far I’m really enjoying having more flexibility. The number one reason I decided to go this route was to have more control over my site. Although wonderful, wordpress.com doesn’t allow the installation of things like google analytics so it was time to move on. I’m really excited to see where this journey continues to take me!
Sick Margs. The cold has been making it’s way through our house. Last Sunday Margsy appeared to be under the weather after her weekly swimming lesson. Later that day we noticed that she’d developed spots under her feet. By Tuesday I was pretty worried so I took her to the doctor and she was confirmed to have Hand, Foot and Mouth disease. She’s on the mend but still not 100% back to herself.
Skunks! There are a ton of skunks roaming around outside. I was woken up by the smell of a skunk who had sprayed right outside our house. The smell somehow managed to get in and it’s less than pleasant. Hopefully, these little guys decide to find their way back to the forest where they came from.
Anxiety. Same story different week. I’ve got an appointment to see my doctor about the situation early next week. I saw her briefly when I brought Margs in and she encouraged me to make an appointment to discuss a medication change. Hoping to find some relief soon.
What are your highs & lows for this fine week of April 10th?
