In some ways this has been a really hard week (Covid restrictions, allergies, being out of work again) and in other ways this has been an amazing week. I found it easy to find pictures for the photo prompts for this week of Lysha's I Spy Photo Challenge. You can find the other participants at Lysha's blog here.
I was thrilled to be able to finally plant my pansies and ranunculus in our window boxes yesterday. We had snow earlier this week (ugh) so I had to wait awhile. I'm excited to see how they change as spring progresses.
Well things are finally starting to look "up" around here. On Sunday our province announced that my age group was eligible for the vaccine, on Monday I was able to make an appointment, and yesterday I GOT VACCINATED!!!!!!!!! (Also, thank you to the kind pharmacist who "faked" giving me the vaccine solely so I could get a picture. She was beyond kind, and not just because of that!)
I was cooking and baking a "mixed" bag of food one morning this week -- boiling potatoes and eggs for potato salad and baking muffins and making lemonade with leftover freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Those of you who have read around here for awhile will remember that our family loves having our own individual hand soaps in the bathroom. During Covid, we ran out and had to use regular soap for a year. About a month ago, while Rachel had dance, the rest of us went to the mall to run a few errands and we randomly decided to visit our favourite soap store again. It's such a small thing, but it's made me smile to see our soaps again. To me, it's another very small sign that things might slowly be returning to normal.
