Mr.*From Scratch took a week-long business trip to Orlando (boo hoo), so I've been the sole administer-er of antibiotics, pain meds and the dreaded Elizabethan-cone-around-the-neck.
Today Oliver's much better, so I've had the mental energy to think about other things, like this beloved blog! I have to give myself a (small) pat on the back for all the stress I fared this week. I discovered I'm a little bit more courageous then I thought. Carrying a 14 pound crying animal to and from the vet and then making him comfortable all week was a big task (remember we live in a 5th floor walk-up folks). Many thanks to the friends and loved ones who have checked up on us--you know who you are!
Along with my newfound courage, I also realized there were some neat little tidbits of daily life that just had to be shared for this week's post. Nothing earth shattering, just simple discoveries that made my week easier and more pleasant. Enjoy!
1) Go bananas for...bananas!
|Too many ripe bananas? Cut them up and place on a baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, pop them in a zip-top bag. Perfect for smoothies or dip them in melted chocolate for a tasty spring treat.|
2) Show your sink some love...
| Did you know any soap nozzle will screw onto a glass bottle? I got this idea from the website Pinterest. Just fill your favorite bottle with dish-soap and screw on the nozzle. I have always loved the green Pellegrino bottle, and now my sink looks tres chic.|
3) Captain Obvious called...
|Convalescing cat with cone.|
|I treated myself to a little retail therapy this week. It's a little Ohio charm! You can take the girl out of the Mid-West, but it will always remain in my heart.|
