Ha ha ha… my friend and I did an early Halloween party! We had a blast… wore wigs, and then we got us some sidewalk chalk, and some bubbles, and some plasticine and we got colorful!
Can never get enough when she keeps presenting herself so wonderfully!!
I got a new fish! He’s just beautiful! I’ve had a lot of Betta’s in my life.. and they’ve all been purple and blue. I just love them… so today, passing the pet store, I popped in, on a whim. So here he is!!! TADA! Announcing, AlphaBetta! He’s going to be called Alpha for short!
Betta fish are fighting fish. If you put two males together they will fight… their faces get all puffed up as do their fins. This can also be achieved using a mirror…they’re easy to trick. lol But I won’t, seems mean to me.
They’re quite phenomenal looking. I’ve always been taken with them, the vivid colors.
They sell them in cups! I asked the woman if they had any Bettas and she says yes, they’re over there in the cups…. I said – in cups? IN CUPS? lol
As we were looking at them I glanced down just in time to noticed tons of bugs running across the floor away from the saleswoman’s feet!
I, of course, freaked out… and backed up… lol She had been holding a bag of crickets and absent-mindedly had it upside down…they all escaped! RUN little crickets RUN!!!
His new home…just set it up today… I can’t wait to put him in there. He is going to love it. It’s too cold now, though..have to wait. lol
Update: Well, he’s home now..and he thinks he is some flashy! He’s flitting all around, swimming through the railings on the bridge, swimming under it… zigzagging! lol I think he’s happy, and not bored anymore. 😀
So yesterday and the day before I went and helped my friend paint her livingroom. It was so terrific..we giggled our buns off. lol The colors were just wonderful! She had already chosen a color for the main wall. Sea Fan…it’s sort of a coral color. Somewhere between orange and peach… very vivid, bright, and happy! After we did all the prep and the ceiling, and the one wall, we went to Canadian Tire to get the second color. We had one in mind, but they didn’t have it… so we got one that was close. Neither of us very happy that they couldn’t supply us with our choice. lol It was according to my paint book…but they didn’t have that type of paint. However, when he opened the tin and showed us, we both exclaimed, rather jubilantly – YES! At the same time. lol As we were leaving the store a woman says *have fun!* And again, we both said *we are!* at the same time. lol The pictures don’t do the colors justice because of the lack of appropriate lighting. 😦 … they’re very vibrant and a lot of fun. Of course, my cam was set up on the tripod… and it got paint on it. Now it’s thoroughly broken in! I love photography and painting and most of what I own has paint on it. lol
My friend got me two tripods!
Now, if the moon ever eclipses again, I’m ready. lol
Seriously, I love it. He gave me a big one and a small one! The big one has two levels on it and a compass!! Imagine that! lol
So thrilled!! I keep thinking about going out just to get pix now. lol It’s bad enough I go nowhere without my camera, now it’s going to be my camera AND tripod…groan. lol Well worth it, says I. 😀
