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!
And today, I present to you the new and improved...
Alright, alright - it's not as fancy as the other guinea pig cage setups but I'm actually really happy that they now have all this space to play and popcorn! I decided to expand the Midwest enclosure a few months ago and I purchased my C&C Cages since. I couldn't set it up yet because I wanted to set them up in this room and I was still painting at the time.
The Midwest Cage has an area of about 7 square feet. It's the minimum that's good for two piigs. Mocha and Machiatto had some bad fights and even Bear noticed that the enclosure is just two small for the boys.
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.
