Weekly Journal #38



I bought avocados and they all ripened at the same time so I ended up having avocados for lunch three days in a row. I wasn't even mad. 
I cut them in half and eat them with tomato basil crackers, it's one of my favorite things to eat lately.

It was really warm this week and all the garden centers around have started putting out their plants, so of course we had to go and stock up on springtime supplies.

Last Sunday I got straight to work sewing a skirt with my new sewing machine. It's nearly done and I can't wait to see how it looks when it's finished!

It was my first week at my new job and it went really well, although my brain is very overloaded with new information. I am working in the regenerative medicine field and my job will be growing human cells that will be used to manufacture organs for clinical trials. It has been my goal for the last few years to end up working here and I can't believe I finally have. I am so excited to finally have a job I can be really proud of and one that I look forward to going to every day. 

How was everybody's week?

  1. I do like avocados, but the ones in the shops are so hit and miss with being good - I usually only pick them up every few weeks to give them a go. Can't wait to see the skirt! I had many intentions of sewing my own, but I have the oldest sewing machine and it's just rubbish at everything haha (so am I, but I'm blaming the sewing machine).

    Glad to hear the new job is going well!

  2. Love Love Love avocados and have them at least once a week for breakfast with an egg cooked inside.

    We stocked up on gardening items this past week-end also, and planted pansies and daffodils. The weather could not have been any sweeter.

    Congratulations on your job! That sounds interesting.

  3. Yum, the flavour pairing of avocado and tomato + basil crackers sounds delish. Thanks for mentioning that, I think I'll give it a go, too. :)

    Big hugs & happy end of winter (finally!) wishes,

  8. That avocado sure looks delicious! Glad your new job is exciting and interesting. Love the pic of your gray polka-dot garment & sewing machine. Have you finished that project? I would love to see it.
    Feels good to get your hands dirty in the garden again.
