I really need to get back on the ball. I just drew this one piece this week so it’s kind of odd to be reposting it by itself, but I want to keep the art summaries going.
Happy Sunday, everyone! Time for yet another week’s recap. All of this week I felt very overwhelmed. There is so much to do… I don’t know how I can ever catch up… but I guess eventually I’ll manage it. Anyway, let’s get to what happened this week!
🌈 Monday 🌈
Monday was Mwako’s last day with us. We went out to breakfast and shopping one final time, and then he was off to the airport.
At Publix he sneakily got this Jurassic World Dominion shopping bag that he surprised me with before leaving… I love it!
We did one final Target stop, where I finally caved and got the Ankylosaurus that I’d picked up and put back on the shelf three times prior. At home, he quickly made friends with Bumpy!
Also at Target, I found this awesome coloring book of Turning Red. It has wonderful illustrations and activities –stickers, too!
I also got another Highlights Hidden Pictures book. I love these so much. The old-timey pen and ink illustrations give me life!
The last lovely find was this little gliding Bowser Jr.! Isn’t he adorable?
For dinner we had salmon. And that was that for Monday. I don’t have anything to share until Thursday because I was just so busy.
🌈 Thursday 🌈
For Thursday I have a few odds-and-ends. Firstly, I installed the bird feeder that my mom in law gave to me, and added a cob of corn for good measure:
Also –this is older, but I only photographed it today. It’s a very gently used The Lost World: Jurassic Park baby triceratops figure by Kenner:
Brand new, this can go well over a hundred dollars. She came out of the box and with no egg, but she was only $25… so I am happy.
Also, I hung my little Bowser Jr. from the studio ceiling so he looks like he’s gliding!
Today our partner and I released some ladybugs to fight the aphids in our brand new almond bush. The ladybugs were exposed to the heat for too long on the way to us, but most of them revived and immediately went to work:
Later in the afternoon, at the insistence of friends, I took a break to play some Pokémon Sword and have a snack:
I drank another of my Good2Grow Podz, this one is a baby T. rex, so cute!
🌈 Saturday 🌈
Saturday was stressful. Kotoko has been vomiting, sometimes a little pink (meaning there was blood, at least once). We’ve been in constant contact with our vet, and finally at her advice we brought her in. Kotoko was a very good girl, as always.
Multiple tests were done and we will see what the results say, for now we have special foods and nausea meds. Hopefully it is nothing serious.
In the evening, the three of us went out to dinner. We ate at El Balcón De Las Americas. It was a good place, we will go there again. Since we were a bilingual table, our very nice waiter gave us a bilingual dessert:
Later that night I decided to dress Grover up in pajamas, since all he ever does is sleep with me anyway:
🌈 Sunday 🌈
On Sunday I went on a little date with our partner while Christopher rested and enjoyed some solitude. He couldn’t get us out the door fast enough, but I think he would have enjoyed this place were it not for the heat. We went to the Yellow Green Farmers Market. The best thing was the smells –like fair food stalls on steroids! We had carne a la vara, with arepas. It was awesome.
The people at this stall could use some help spelling, but it was pretty hilarious:
A lot of people bring their dogs here. This pupper was at a stall that sold… either carved wood items of some sort, or candles, or both. I forget.
He or she was in fact a good guard dog, but only as far as other puppers were concerned. I could get this close without any sort of reaction! If any dogs got anywhere in sight though (even far off!) this pupper would perk up and bark fiercely… without ever leaving his or her little perch. 😁
Anyway, that was a lovely time. I’m really treasuring the memories made. 💕
