hola friends !! it is a sunny tuesday morning and I decided to pull up WordPress and write a post today bc I feel like its been a long time since I did one of these posts but its actually only been like, two weeks. aha
first things first..

on the very last day of April we found a super cute abandoned calf, who we named Trixie, and we took her home to bottle feed since she wasn’t doing well. now, she is doing super well and drinking a full bottle several times a day. so cute ;’)
dixie is also quite jealous bc a) we pay attention to trxie and not her for like 3 minutes b) their names rhyme ahah
also also also
we started composting! we have so many vegetable scraps and all we do is throw them out so we decided to “repurpose” them and give our garden some better soil by composting. we used plastic barrels, some pallets, and a plastic tube to build our composters and so far, they are working well. the first batch of compost is finally breaking down and now smells very earthy and is looking quite nice. if you’re looking to reduce your garbage and give your soil a boost, composting is a great way to start. The Spruce has so many helpful articles all about it.
oh oh and last week I got my new paintbrushes in the mail and EEEEE they are the most beautiful things ever. I could not stop petting them ahh. i’m currently doing a peony/poppy canvas and its been pretty entertaining. i need to finish the first flower before i get bored of it and do something really drastic like paint the whole thing blue LOL
I have been reading a lotttt since I finished school which has been really nice. currently i’m reading rainbow valley by the one and only l m montgomery and ahh i love it so much. the last few Anne books about her children are some of my favorites
eeeeeeeeeeee ALSO ALSO
i broke out of the house yesterday and did a little bit of shopping and i found my dreaaaam plant. one of them at least.
a majesty palm !! i found mine at a hardware store for $20 and she looks so cute in my room.
i really need to stop buying plants, ahah
i think the only one I am going to buy, if i find one, is a pothos because i think it would be super cute on my bookshelf. but other than that i don’t think i will be buying any more houseplants bc my room is fuuuull haha
