I love September, especially since I have deemed September 1st to be Harry Potter Day. I have that kind of authority. At least in my family. For those of you who might not know, every year on September first all the students of Hogwarts board the Hogwarts Express at platform 9 3/4’s and head to… Continue reading Harry Potter Day!
A few weeks ago, a small female sugar glider wandered into my little family’s chaos. Unlike on Imgur, we did not find her out in the rain, or on our doorstep. However, we did find her in great need of food, comfort, a clean environment, and love. We have temporarily adopted this sugar glider, which… Continue reading Sucrose’s Big Adventure!
Last weekend was incredibly busy for my family. Last weekend Snug had her first skating competition, because why not? When they are so little and adorable and can only wiggle and swizzle, you might as well. Thankfully it was a fun competition for everyone and we made a new friend, which was the goal of… Continue reading Can snakes ice skate??
I posted a while ago about our sweet kitty Goose, who passed last October due to over consumption. Of thread. For those of you who craft and have kitties, please be aware of the problem exposed thread holds and be sure to have preventative measures. My sewing machine was put away, but the thread portion… Continue reading Goose Vs. Snakes and other creatures.
The husband and I will celebrate our four-year anniversary on Friday! By celebrate I of course mean the day will pass almost unnoticed while we move, yet again. Anyway, in honor of our achievement of four years of enduring life’s stresses, law school, child rearing, my slight hypochondria, going on no sleep, etc. I have… Continue reading I’ve grown accustomed to the snakes…
Did you know eyeballs could freeze?? I had no idea, myself. So I asked the internet. The conversation went something like this… Me: “Why hello internets, I have an interesting question. I believe eyeballs can freeze, but I need verification and I would like to know what part of the eyeball freezes.” The Internets: “Very… Continue reading Frozen eyeballs…literally.
Today I learned that Flapjacks aren’t just pancakes. They are thick pancakes in America and Canada, but in Western Europe they are oat bars, i.e. granola type bars, made with oats and honey. Personally I had always thought flapjacks to be very thin, but sturdy, the building blocks of pancakes as it were. You know,… Continue reading Flap Jack (our pancake tortoise)
Last night I posted on Facebook a couple of things I never could have imagined that I would do in my life. Here is a blurb on those things and how I spent my Thursday night. Snug’s leopard gecko, named Tangy, (that we got in October and I have yet to make a post about)… Continue reading Gecko Watching and Sexing Probes (not explicit)
It is Sunday, which means it is feeding day. Or mouse day. Snug likes mouse day. She loves the soft fur and the cute little pinks. We got a couple of sizes today, little newborn or 2-3 day old mice called pinks and crawlers, mice that are around 10 days old. Pinks.. Crawlers… *A quick… Continue reading Counting Mice…another type of preschool math.
I am a knitter, I have been for about three years now and I am happy to say that I would feel comfortable trying my hardest to knit anything thrown my way. I love the needles, the challenge, the feel of the yarn. All of it. In fact one day I want alpacas, then I… Continue reading Learning to Crochet…like learning to fly without wings.
