    Hahah, glad you found one! I wonder how it'll do in your climate 🤔
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    I think I know it as a Thai lime
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Just dropped my dog off at the vet, she has a suspicious lump on her ear. She's getting it surgically removed. Should be fine, but it's nervewracking, gosh

    It's very nerve-racking!! The little babies are precious!
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Just had the phonecall that they are starting the procedure now. And that they will let me pick her up after-hours. I asked them that if at all possible, she could come home with us again today.
  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    We go to a pricier vet, but the way they treat her is amazing. And even though she's kind of scared of the building, she loves the people and always asks for cuddles from them. Nothing but the best for her I suppose, haha. I'm very nervous.

    ya home depot had some limes here from a nursery, someone marked as being a Kaffir ( Makrut lime ) but it wasnt the real wrinkled bumpy kaffir it was just a plain key lime and they wanted $70+ usd. first time i have seen or heard this plant was about 10 years ago while overseas and having a soup and fried rice they use the leaves like we use bayleaf in both and it was really tasty and it added a very distinctly citrus tone to the flavors, i kind of got hooked on some of the thai dishes the flavors are incredable

    Pup was so cold she could've been a popsicle when we got her home (she just couldn't get warm). Eventually skin-to-skin under 3 layers of blankets for 2 hours warmed her up. But today she's doing great! She's got some sass back. Though she's tender and very tired. And she knows we're going to treat her like a princess and is willfully abusing this power :p

  • Mandy Onderwater Mandy Onderwater:
    Thank you! Yeah she even cuddles with me on the stitched side. It's like I was to tell her to be cautious more than that it's actually hurting her, haha

      I have removed a message you posted as it contained a link to a website. I'm unfamiliar with the name, so I removed it as a precaution - we have had a lot of spam lately.
