Yay for Friday evening! Jerry and I even have plans tonight–we’re going to a restaurant to fulfill our pal group as a result of it is Eric’s fortieth birthday. I am planning to put on a gown for the primary time in years, in order that must be attention-grabbing 😉 I am really sort of excited to decorate up a bit.
I’ve a mishmash of photographs from the previous week. A lot of the photographs I took have been of the toilet and bed room concern with the flooring, however I do have some others that I have not posted but as a result of they simply do not slot in anyplace else. Right here goes…
Since I needed to transfer virtually all the things out of my bed room, my lava lamp was on the desk in the lounge. After I walked by, I instantly thought it seemed like somebody was caught in there the other way up. Does not it appear like a face?
I do know I wrote about it already, however right here is The Peach Truck. They decide Georgia peaches after which drive them up right here on a tour. You should purchase them by the 25-pound box–which is why I will be consuming peaches for per week! They’re SO GOOD, although.
I forgot that I had pre-ordered this ebook. I often really feel like a foul parent–or not less than one which learns by making the unsuitable choices. It is laborious having to be taught to guardian when the one expertise you get is by elevating youngsters! My youngsters understand how a lot I really like them, although, and they’re *actually* actually good youngsters. Anyway, I’ve mates that really feel the identical means about being a guardian, and I believed this ebook was humorous!
If you cannot learn the pages (the photographs aren’t nice) it says:
“If a quokka mother comes nose to nose with dingoes within the wild, guess what she’ll do to get away? That is proper… she’ll toss her little one.”
“For dinnertime, a koala mother will feed her youngsters her poop. Keep in mind that while you really feel dangerous about giving yours quick meals.”
I discovered this hutch on Fb Market and it is from Pottery Barn–as you recognize, I really like Pottery Barn furnishings! Bear in mind the espresso desk and TV console I refinished? (Listed here are the makeover earlier than and after photographs.) These are two of my favourite items of furnishings. Since I would like a spot for stitching and craft stuff, I believed this hutch can be excellent. I will paint it, however I am undecided what colour but. In all probability white, just like the others. I additionally need to discover a place to place it, however with the toilet/bed room factor we’ve got happening, I’ve an thought for it.
That is simply me, making an attempt to meal plan for the week. Duck will get jealous of something in any respect that I am paying extra consideration to than him, and he positively does what he can to get my consideration.
Jerry and I went into Walmart for some organizing containers, and we noticed these cross sew kits. We thought it might be enjoyable to work on collectively, and we ended up choosing out the identical one, haha. It has been YEARS since I’ve performed cross sew and Jerry has by no means performed it, so we had a whole lot of laughs making an attempt to get began. I feel we watched half a film earlier than we lastly began making stitches.
|Jerry’s progress after about an hour|
Duck was going loopy watching us–he needed the string so badly! I knew it might be a foul thought to even try the cross stitching (due to the kittens) however Jerry and I have been actually cautious. We stored the thread we weren’t utilizing in Ziploc baggage and if we needed to stand up, we put the entire thing in a bag.
The thread was hooked to a chunk of cardboard, so I felt higher about that. At the least if the cats obtained a maintain of the thread, it might be caught to the cardboard they usually would not have the ability to swallow it. Nicely, when it got here time to place all the things away, Jerry and I searched and searched however we could not discover my piece of cardboard with the thread on it. Lastly, I went in the lounge to look, and I discovered it… with a LOT of the thread chewed off!
Since Duck had been sitting on the mattress watching us, I knew it needed to be Chick that ate it. I searched round for items of it and could not discover any. He’d clearly eaten the entire black and he’d eaten half a chunk of inexperienced and half a chunk of white.
I felt completely panicked. After all the things else happening this week, the very last thing I wanted was one other cat surgical procedure to take away thread! I could not resolve whether or not to convey him to the vet immediately or if I ought to simply look ahead to any indicators of a blockage. When Duck ate yarn, he was throwing up bile in all places and he completely misplaced all curiosity in meals. That is how I knew one thing was unsuitable; Duck would usually promote his soul for a cat deal with.
That occurred on Wednesday evening. Jerry is on a midnight schedule so he was awake all evening and checked on Chick a number of instances. Yesterday, Chick threw up a hairball and I knew I needed to look by way of it to see if there was any thread. I placed on some gloves and began choosing it aside. And I discovered among the thread! (Key phrase being “some”.)
It is now been a day and a half and Chick hasn’t proven any indicators of feeling sick. He is playful, he is consuming effectively, he is being social… so I am fairly certain he is superb. I am nonetheless going to observe him like a hawk for a couple of days, although.
I bumped into TJ Maxx to see if that they had any containers I might use to arrange stuff as we clear out our bed room/rest room and naturally I had to have a look at the pet part. I believed these cat beds have been SO cute! I needed to purchase one, however they have been $60, so I did not get one. Possibly for Christmas 😉
Whereas I used to be there, I additionally noticed this dried ardour fruit. I LOVE ardour fruit! And I’ve solely had it once–when we have been in Punta Cana in 2014, it was all the time out for breakfast choices. I believed it seemed like snot with ants in it, so I did not strive it for a couple of days. Then someday we obtained room service they usually introduced a bunch of fruit. I gave it a try to I could not consider how good it was! I just about lived off of that for the remainder of the time we have been there.
The issue with ardour fruit is that I can’t get it round right here (not less than that I do know of). I’d like to have it once more! However I used to be excited to get this dried ardour fruit. It wasn’t even near the identical, nevertheless it was good. I additionally drink ardour fruit La Croix and anything I can discover that’s ardour fruit flavored.
I would gone into TJ Maxx for containers to organize–which they did not even have–and ended up leaving with not solely the dried ardour fruit, but additionally a mug that was on clearance for $1. It is the “Love Is Love” mug on the underside left.
As for the others, I obtained them from Passion Foyer (once more, whereas in search of containers, haha!) they usually have been 66% off! So I purchased the Demise Star one for Jerry and the Central Perk one for me. And the opposite two have been too excellent for us NOT to get, so I picked these up, too. (These are Associates references, should you’re not acquainted.) Anyway, they ended up being about $3 every they usually’re good mugs.
Whereas I am with reference to mugs, I simply need to share what Noah obtained as his white elephant present at his birthday celebration. It is a mug that’s strong black however while you pour sizzling liquid into it, it turns into this:
Nicolas Cage in a banana peel. Hahaha! I do not know what the importance is, however I believed it was hilarious and the right white elephant present.
Whereas I used to be pulling weeds (sure, I am maintaining on high of it!) I discovered this–the little bean trying factor is a peanut! The shell got here aside once I picked it up, however clearly considered one of our squirrels buried it and it sprouted. A peanut tree is simply what we’d like 😉
And that is all I’ve obtained for this week. Hopefully subsequent week I am going to have some progress footage of our bed room and toilet.
Have an ideal weekend! xo
