Happy Sunday everyone!
And Happy Father's day to all the deserving hooman and paw-dads out there!
The weather's been quite good this week. It was really hot the days prior but this week it was less scorching than usual. It's still quite hot, planting herbs on my veggie garden facing the sun most definitely killed them. There goes additional casualties. Overall tho, it's been better. Reasons to get a mini greenhouse.
I have to admit, our garden is my pride and joy. I mean, on top of a lot of other things that I take pride of. Let me rephrase that, it's my life's spring & summer pride and joy. That being said, I put a lot of work in it over the past few years. Living in a home we didn't own yet then, I really didn't make that much modifications - just planted a few perennials and mostly annuals. This time, we're able to do more to it and I'm excited on what other changes the future will bring. In the meantime, let's focus on NOW!
What else is new in the Frank Family home?
Gyppie Catto and the bed sheets.
Things can still get magical ♥
I don't think I previously mentioned it yet, but Bear was laid off at the end of November due to the pandemic. It's truly unfortunate, especially that we just bought a home. Thankfully, there's already a lot of back up assistance for people affected by the pandemic so I was able to postpone some bills. That being said, things are a little tight with just my income and savings. It really sucks because I don't think I would be able to buy gifts and all.
Now, now - that doesn't mean Christmas is over right? Great things still happen and I know this is just a challenge. So let's get on with the magic!
Welcome home Ein Pup!
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year ♥
I will begin with saying I am not religious, and I believe in nature and a higher deity. That being said, I sometimes get asked (usually by Bear), how can I love Christmas so much as it really has no religious meaning to me. There are several things that make me truly appreciate this holiday and today I will talk about these things that I do not really openly discuss.
Lights, Glitter, and Decor
My reasons aren't really in any particular order and this first reason probably sounds shallow to some, but for some reason I really enjoy decorating and definitely love the lights. There's something about lights that really amaze me. I love fireworks, holiday lights, flickering lights... lightworks just really make me feel... happy.
That being said, this year I was able to decorate more outside and it really made me happy. I love the puppy too! I think that's my favorite decor to date. I guess with decorating comes shopping, and I got to admit that I probably have some mild shopping addiction.
Me: I want another puppy. I think Hans would really love to have a sibling. See how he cries every time we drive by another puppy and how happy he gets when he's in daycare?
Bear: We can't. We don't own the house and we don't have enough room for two dogs.
So we bought the house. And got a puppy :)
Okay, I lied, that's not how it went.
We've been planning to buy the house we live in for a few years now. Unfortunately, life happens and things change, and we were unable to move forward. See, I'm the kind of person that when I set my eyes on something, I have to get it. This is taking too long. So I told myself and Bear - we're getting the house this fall.
Bear shrugged, sure. What better way to seal the deal than to make sure you're getting the best home warming gift to the family? Get a new family member. I put us on a waitlist for late 2020 or early 2021. And by October 25th, our Ein was born.
Hello World, meet Ein the Corgi.
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
