Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path…
Another week has passed. It’s the last full week of August. When I started doing these posts, I never imagined I would be wfh for 10 weeks. Hitting double digits seemed monumental. Now, here we are at almost 6 months mostly wfh. The British Hubby will most likely be wfh for the next 26 weeks. I will be for the immediate future.
How is the garden coming this week? We’ve had the first sunflower plant stop blooming. While a little sad, I still have plenty yet to bloom. So far, I don’t have any purple blooms. There are two plants still remaining. I’m still holding out hope. A new to me variety, moonshine or lemon queen, has bloomed this week. It has pale yellow petals. Did I mention how tall these are even in containers?
I had another variety bloom, but I’m not sure what type it is. The petals are really short and stubby, but also kind of fun.
The big news is we re-potted the lemon tree. I’m pretty certain it’s not a weed, but well not 100%.
This week we had Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake 2.0. We made a slight change to the original recipe. Fresh ginger! OMG, talk about upgrading this recipe to a much deeper flavor. We grated about an inch of fresh ginger and added it to the cake mix. I thought we could have added more, but the British Hubby thought it was a good amount. We really wanted to add candied ginger pieces, but that sort of defeats the purpose of going low-carb and sugar free. The struggle is real!
I’m off to wind yarn with Burt. I know I don’t need more yarn, but several of my MM20 projects ran out and stalled. Updates on those to come soon! Meanwhile, Ernie tells me MM20 makes a nice sleep spot. It’s so soft and squishy.
