Thrifted and a Thank You

Before we did the responsible errands, like shopping for actual food to put on our empty pantry shelves, Jacob and I detoured to the Thrift store. He picked out a firetruck book and I got the above. We literally have one pot, one skillet and two odd sized glassware casserole dishes; Not to mention we’ve broken at least three, maybe four, of our cups recently, which doesn’t bode well for the ones I just bought, but I couldn’t resist. I’m not big on cooking, I think if you’ve read the blog at all you probably know that already, but I figured we should start beefing up our pots, pans and casserole dishes just in case we host Thanksgiving this year (hint, hint family!)

I’m glad we stopped in and found some treasures. Since we always go right after we drop Judah off at school, the shop is empty save one or two other early risers and it’s nice to roam around for a little bit, and even nicer when the 20% off sign is in the door.


We are still recovering from the sickness, but things are starting to even out around here. Jacob’s fever broke the other night and he’s eating again – Hallelujah! I haven’t had a chance to reply to your comments, but I wanted to thank you all for your responses to the last post. This is why I love the blogging community so much – even though some of you I only know via the internet, I really love the relationships that have come out of blogging. It’s nice to link arms with you guys!

Lunch is ready and the boys are having a jolly little shouting match  - one in which Judah thinks is the most hilarious game and Jacob is just plain annoyed. It’s pretty funny. Hope your week is starting off nicely. Any thrifted items you want to share? Projects maybe? Did you check outRachel’s table DIY? I’m so doing that!

Veterinary medicine

Veterinary medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, disorder and injury in non-human animals. The scope of veterinary medicine is wide, covering all animal species, both domesticated and wild, with a wide range of conditions which can affect different species.

Veterinary medicine is widely practiced, both with and without professional supervision. Professional care is most often led by a veterinary physician (also known as a vet, veterinary surgeon or veterinarian), but also by paraveterinary workers such as veterinary nurses or technicians. This can be augmented by other paraprofessionals with specific specialisms such as animal physiotherapy or dentistry, and species relevant roles such as farriers.

Veterinary science

Veterinary science helps human health through the monitoring and control of zoonotic disease (infectious disease transmitted from non-human animals to humans), food safety, and indirectly through human applications from basic medical research. They also help to maintain food supply through livestock health monitoring and treatment, and mental health by keeping pets healthy and long living. Veterinary scientists often collaborate with epidemiologists, and other health or natural scientists depending on type of work. Ethically, veterinarians are usually obliged to look after animal welfare.
