We have a new pet at our house this week! She is an early birthday present for daughter #3, in response to pleas that have come for a long time. The new bunny, Hazel, is on the left. We adopted her from the local shelter and she is really sweet so far. Next to her is Fred, our older bunny. We also still have our hedgehog and our chinchilla.
Here’s what I discovered outside this week — blooming crocus. I am very glad to see them. Most years, deer (I guess?) find them and snip them off either before they bloom or shortly after. I am enjoying every day I get with them. Tree buds are getting bigger as well. I’m hopeful we can get a pretty spring display without a hard frost nipping things, literally, in the bud. The next 10 days look frost free …
This is our final week before spring break. We’re not really going anywhere, but daughter #3 travels to DC with her band. She is also going to Williamsburg. I haven’t been there since childhood but would love to return. In Washington, I see that the cherry blossoms just reached their peak, so I hope they will still be pretty a week later.
Here is the week’s menu plan ideas:
Monday: leftover soups from last week — potato and tortilla
Tuesday: Calico Beans
Wednesday: Chicken Noodle Soup — I am playing for lent service again tonight, after piano lessons, so I need something I can have ready.
Thursday: fish night — I bought some cod at the grocery to prepare.
Friday: Southwest Chicken Lasagna — made before; good.
