Croakers & Bling - UPDATE

Thursday, May 08, 2014

It's been a very interesting few days since my last post. Monday I was really sick all day . . . must have been a 24-hour bug cos I've been feeling really good since that time.

Tuesday, I met with the shop owner who wanted to see my jewelry. She bought all of it! She had customers wanting to buy it while I was still in the shop. And two of the ladies placed orders for earrings and a necklace!!! Wow!

Remember the egg sacks I brought in from the pond (I found them on a submerged branch while cleaning out the pond overflow.) Okay, a long over-due update. We've been amazed at every moment of their transition from itty bitty eggs to tiny little Pacific Tree Frogs.

However, three of them escaped from the tightly netted aquarium last night. Don't ask me how cos I can't figure it out. . . but I found one this morning by the back door! (He's been relocated to a puddle in the rock garden and seems to be doing fine.)

There's still one that still has it's tail and the front legs haven't developed yet. But we also found a tiny little damsel fly . . . barely an inch long! Apparently it made its way in on some of the mossy stuff from the pond. How cool! (I've tried to take pics but cannot get a clear one.) And I'm not going to vacuum for a couple more days!

DH has today and tomorrow off from work, so we have a 4 day 'stay-cation'. Hopefully I'll get a chance to catch up on your blogs and do some more Sparkin'. By the way, I am liking the recent changes SP made to the site.

So, how are you doing???

    That is awesome, too bad you couldn't get the picture of the damsel fly.

    Thanks, that was the easiest CAT Scan I've ever had!

    Sounds like you are having fun with your 'finds'. Since they're tree frogs, you'll probably hear them before too long...and they'll probably be up on a wall. Hope you find them soon, and send them on their way... emoticon

    I enjoyed reading your blog --- your world sounds interestingly fun.

    I am happy that the bug was only around for 24-hours. \o/ Praise the good Lord! \o/

    My week has been pretty much as one of my Aunts is known to say "Same ole! Same ole!' --- however, that doesn't mean that there haven't been zillions of blessings to enjoy, so there is no complaint from this quarter.

    Program-wise --- I had some difficult days with being tempted to go for more than a portion of some foods. I weathered that concern & am not back on the right track with the time of temptation a not too distant memory. I have gotten a bit more exercise than is normal for me, so I feel good about that.

    That is a wrap!

    God bless!

    Other than being sick, your week has been a whole lot more fun than mine. Achievement testing all day long as school. Everyone stressed beyond measure. Can't wait for it to all be over!

    BWAHAHAHA! Needed that CAT scan . . . seems the mind has been missing lately! LOL

    Glad the little frog babies are all right.

    Wow! It couldn't happen to a nicer artist!!! I have to say, I'm not surprised in the least that people are buying up your work like hotcakes! You definitely have skill and talent! I'm only seeing a pic online (which I'm quite sure doesn't really do the work justice) but they really caught my eye nevertheless. I smell a new business happening... emoticon

    The baby tree frogs sound like a cool science project I'd take on! Kind of a creepy thought though if one is hopping around the house, looking for the door to outside! heheh

    You GO Cathy! I hope you're feeling a great sense of pride! emoticon emoticon
