This past week hasn't been very fun around here! Lachlan had his first real sickness - it started with a fever, which gave way to goopy eyes and a runny nose. After a visit to the dr. we found out it was Conjunctivitis and by Friday dinnertime the antibiotics were doing their job. Until... he woke up Friday night throwing up for the first time ever. Aww, it was so sad. Luckily, it was a short-lived stomach bug. Lucky for me, since it caught up with me yesterday. Yuck. And Bill has been sick all weekend with a head cold. So, not the most enjoyable long weekend for us. At least it meant some extra cuddle time with our cutie-pie.
We did spot some wildlife in our yard, though! This is the second time I've seen this buck in our yard. He was tasting our apples, and I've also noticed some lilies have been nibbled.
Then I spotted a skunk rooting around in the front yard. Don't worry, I wasn't in danger of being sprayed because I used my camera's zoom to get a closer look. Did you know that skunks are a main predator of honeybees?
I haven't had time to do much crafting lately, but I did manage to finish up a tag blanket that is a gift for a new baby boy. Here's hoping for healthier days around here!
