There has been alot of stuff going on the past few weeks that isn’t sewing related and I decided to share a little bit.
I got some new pets! Boyfriend and I caught 3 toadlets and since I know how to care for animals we are keeping them. I didn’t want to announce on here that I had new pets because to be honest I wasn’t sure they would survive the transition from live bugs to chopped up crickets. However it has been 3 weeks and they are eating their crickets so I’ll share now.
They are each a little different from the others so we named them, Ed is the runt, he is about half the size of the biggest one. Wilson is the biggest, he is also slightly lighter than the other two. Jackson is the middle one, he is the same color as Ed, but his spots on his back are more clumped together.
They are super fun to watch, they are still a little jumpy so I don’t want to handle them more than I have to, because they are so small I’m worried that I’ll hold on to them too hard.
They are also pretty hard to get good pictures of because my camera makes a noise before it takes the picture and the noise scares them so then they jump away.
These guys bring my pet count to 5: 3 toads and 2 shrimp 🙂
Also boyfriend and I celebrated our 1st anniversary on June 27th, however I had a test the following day so Thursday he took me out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, Woodfire Grill, the chef/owner is Kevin Gillespie from last season’s Top Chef. This was the 2nd time that we have eaten there, both times we did the chef’s tasting which is a 5 course blind tasting. I did the vegetarian tasting and my 2nd course was this amazing fried squash blossom with cheese grits inside!
I’ll be back with more sewing this week!
