The Weekly [10.11-17.2020]

This last week was a busy week of working in the office, but still making the best of it. Here’s a run down of some of the fun…

Look at the baby Tabasco peppers! They are finally growing. Turns out they needed fertilizer. *eye roll* Hashtag First time gardener problems

Last week Rob and I watched the National League Championship Series with the Braves and Dodgers. Sometime Alex would come down and actually watch the game with us. He’s not a baseball fan, but I think he enjoys the playoffs a little more. Drew came over one night to watch with us. I enjoyed some red wine, which usually isn’t my thing. I prefer white, but this red wine is really sweet and yummy.

Friday after work Rob and I went over to the Alabama Rural Ministries (ARM) Shack that is set up every year. The Executive Director and Founder of ARM lives in the shack for the week to raise money for substandard housing in Alabama. People come out and with Lisa. If you remember, Drew is working as a communications intern for ARM. He arranged to have Aubie come out to get more attention to the shack. People love Aubie. I believe they got a few donations because of Aubie that they otherwise wouldn’t have. Good job!

Earlier in the week Drew got to hang out at the shack with Auburn’s mayor, Ron Anders.

Last week was my week to work in the office and I this sign was on the walkway as I walked in. We’re having problems with students not keeping their masks on in the library.

Saturday, I finally got outside to work on the garden. This is a before shot. I forgot to take an after shot, but I’m also not completely done. I pulled out all the tomato plants, even though there was some new growth on them. Decided I needed the space for all the winter starts.

Friday I got a call from my doctor who did the Endoscopy to let me know the biopsy came back negative for cancer! Yay! As I said before I wasn’t worried. Thankful for that!

    Yay for good endoscopy results. I am waiting for results myself this week but for thyroid scans.
    Look at your green thumb. Those peppers are adorable. I would feel like a proud mom! And love that there is a tiny flower in the photo (and on the plant?) as well. Your back porch is absolutely alive with green!!
    I am so done with folks who don’t want to wear their masks. Here it is mandatory everywhere. And I have to admit, I keep forgetting to grab my mask. But I am not intentionally doing that!!

      Thanks! Yes, those flowers eventually fall off and that is where a new pepper will form. I am over the whole mask thing too. It’s been long enough people just need to do it and quit pushing back!

    So glad your results were good! I wasn’t worried about cancer with all my hysterectomy “stuff” but was still relieved to hear that everything came back normal as well (I hadn’t even realized they sent everything away to be evaluated). It’s still a relief to KNOW though. Great job on your garden; I know you have had a time of it being new and all but as someone who has literally never been able to grow anything edible I am in awe.

      Thanks! Something I didn’t that I was looking at my insurance claims last week and noticed another doctor’s name. Someone I never even met and when I googled him I realized he was the guy looking at the biopsy. It’s always nice to get good news when it comes to your health!

      Thanks so much! It is always fun to look back at the mundane things in life and remember, because it’s crazy how much we forget!

    Great news with your test result! I loved reading about the shack on the Auburn campus. Hopefully we’ll get to come for a campus visit sometime in the next year. Jack is leaning toward engineering, and I’ve heard they have a good program.

    I’m glad to hear about your test results! That’s always good to hear even if you weren’t worried. I’m trying to ease my way into red wines. I love my sweet whites too!

    1. Lysha Post author

      Yeah, I just can’t do the red wines that feel like they suck all the moisture out of your mouth! LOL
