As some of you may know, I live on a farm (see: evidence above). The farm is a lovely place to live most of the time, except allergy season. Which it happens to be right now. Combine that with Mercury Retrograde (MY FAVESIES) and I am beginning to feel like that person who doesn’t understand how to cut bread in that one infomercial. But! There have been some major wins the past few weeks:
- We finally enrolled the puppy in a beginner obedience class and it has completely transformed her personality. She’s so snuggly now.
- I managed to not kill a plant! After an intense bout of cabin fever a few weeks ago, I went rogue at the Home Depot and bought a bunch of potted fruit and vegetable plants with the intent of planting a small garden. They have thus far made it to my front porch. #Whoops. But so far, only one of them is dead! (RIP raspberry bush.) And my little potted strawberries are actually… making strawberries! Y’all, I kill cacti. This is big.
- And in the most mundane news you’ve ever heard, I found this magical thing at Bed Bath & Beyond the other week and finally managed to get the awful hard water stains out of my shower. It’s basically just a nicely packaged pumice stone, but it feels like a revelation.
But enough about me and my very glamorous life. It’s your Happy Hour, so get to it!
