Toby, Oranges, Poke

Chris took Toby (my furbaby) to the vet last week. He was uncontrollably peeing on things he shouldn’t have and the vet diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. He got medications for it and he’s feeling much better now! Toby was a stray cat that used to hang around in Chris’ backyard, now they’ve taken him indoors.

On top of having a succulent collection, my mom and I started gardening. Like really gardening. She’s growing potatoes, ginger and onions. Then she decided to buy two citrus dwarf trees – orange and lemon. We transferred them to the ground this past week and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that they thrive! We’re planning on getting the mulch sometime next week to protect it from other living things within its vicinity.

I met up with two of my closest nursing school friends, Michelle and Debbie, last week. We had lunch at our usual spot during nursing school, Gogo Poke, then stopped by Tea Bar which was right next door. Poke is the best; although I need to watch my intake of raw fish because too much can obviously be too much.

Southern California got a lot of rain recently! Winters in California are typically warm and sunny, but this year’s winter is a cold one. Since the rain started, we’ve been plagued with extreme cold which ultimately meant, defrosting my car for five minutes in the mornings as I got ready to leave for work since there would be ice on it. I love the cold so I’m perfectly fine with it but I do enjoy the cold weather more when I get to stay at home.

What’s been happening in your life lately?
