Frog's In The Slammer

Yip, I had to put the frog in "froggie jail". We have a small fish tank that has a beta and aquatic frog. My six year old decided we needed to go to the pet store and purchase some little neon fish. We have had a few before and they either disappeared or died. I always assumed the beta was to blame. We had been told the neons were compatible with beta fish. Anyway, we went to the store and purchased 3 of them and placed them in the tank.

Later I we cleaning off the counters when I looked over at the tank. I did a double take, as it first appeared the frog had one of the decorative pebbles in it's mouth. On a closer look, it was half of a neon fish!! I quickly tapped the tank hoping to startle the frog into releasing it, in hopes I was "in time". Well he released it and the fish was dead. Sooooooo off to a new container he went! So now a vase with roots of a water lily is going to be born. The frogs new jail

Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!!

Ice Storm

I hope everyone in the storms path is OK. But I have to admit, I always have to smile when I see pictures of all the ice. Not in a mean way, but in fond memories.....

It was 16 years ago, come March, we experienced a similar storm in Indiana. A young red headed guy happened to be one of the guys working on the power lines. When he left, he took my heart with him. Here we are, 15 years later, still going strong. Ironically, it was the same ice storm and same crew that my sister's husband was working on.

Amazing "strength" those storms have:).

Christmas Card

A card I put together today. Took a few days to get the colors together. Tried to make it look "shabby". I guess it isn't too bad for a first try. I need to invest in a distressing tool!!
