Week in Review: 2017.27

Today marks one week of living at the new house!

Even though there’s still a wave of rough stuff happening, I feel like I can finally start to relax… a teeny, tiny, little bit.

There’s been buckets of rain falling for the past few days, which provided a nice relief from the endless manual labor needs out in the garden. When the sun reappeared, the crops looked lush and happy (see header photo of the onions + tomatoes).

This weekend’s forecast looks beautiful, so there’ll be no rest for the weary. I’ll be painting (walls), weeding, and organizing for hours and hours and hours. Silver lining = lots of time for podcast listening (I’ve shared some favorites below).

Here’s my week!

This Week in Podcasting:

We had our first guest for Season 2 of Nourish + Flourish: Andy Hayes, who I mentioned in this post about tea.

Speaking of tea… I am now an Ambassador for Plum Deluxe and implore you to check them out for yourselves. Perhaps by joining the Tea of the Month Club?

This Week in Findings:

And finally, your weekly dose of dogs…

Tiny house = extra coziness.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
