I’m trying to play catch-up with comments and the blogs I read. I think I’ve caught up with everyone at this point. If I’ve missed you, my apologies for that. Let me know and I’ll try to get caught up with you soon.
I got Asher some new food this morning, which I’m not sure he likes. I’ll give it a few more tries and see but he was not impressed with the first bit I gave him. I wonder of he knows just how spoiled he is, as compared to most other pet fish. I also grabbed him a pack of the food I know he likes, anticipating that he may not like the new kind since I already know he is picky.
The girls are a bit fussy, we have had some thunderstorms this week and they don’t like when it storms. They have been coping pretty well though, considering. Where we used to live it didn’t storm too terribly often, but here the storms are a much more regular occurance. They’ve adjusted to that pretty well and they do not fuss as much about the storms as they did when we first moved here. They still don’t like them of course, and I still maintain their safe spaces for them to go to when it storms, just in case they need them when I’m not home to be with them during a storm.
I mysteriously landed in Hobby Lobby after the trip to the pet store for Asher’s food. I needed a new watercolor pad anyway and they were on sale so it worked out well. I also found a set of watercolor paints in one of the clearance sections that I had to get. It was only $10, marked down from $40. Can’t pass up a deal like that, right? I’ve never used this type of watercolor paint before but have wanted to try it. I tested it out with a quick illustration this afternoon. Definitely a very different experience than the watercolor brush pens I’ve been using lately. I need to practice using them a bit and get the hang of them. I’ll share more once I’ve done that.
I had the chance to catch up with my dad a bit today, which was nice. It had been too long since we talked. I don’t know when my aunt is planning to visit me but I’m hoping my dad will join her when she does. I’ve not seen him in two years now, and considering before I moved here I saw him every single day, that has been a difficult adjustment for me. Especially knowing that neither of my siblings is particularly close to him (relationship-wise, physically they live close to him) – I worry about him sometimes.
That’s probably enough rambling for one post. I hope y’all are having a good day.
Until next time. xoxoxo
