🌱🌹 doing okay keeping the rose bushes that came with our house alive, considering I have no idea what I’m doing. The soil has pretty poor drainage, but I don’t think I should try to change anything until the spring….

Today we set out to find what was over the saddle we could see while hiking last weekend. Expecting to find more hills, I was pleasantly surprised to find this view only 1.5 miles up the trail. πŸ₯Ύ

Since we moved into the new house, I’ve been sleeping really well for 8+ hours nearly every night. But this is a new record πŸ’€

What’s changed? Humidifier, blackout curtains, and a cold room with warm blankets.
