Thus Ends July

This is several days late, but better late than never! 🙂

My summer seems kinda run together, so I’m not quite sure what all happened in July. Thankfully I have pictures to look back over to see when we did what, and so I shall write about our adventures in July.

Maggie Doesn’t Like Baths

New Pets!

Don’t get overelly excited, our new pets aren’t fuzzy creatures. But they are pretty cool. 🙂 If you haven’t guessed what they are yet, then I’ll have to tell you I suppose. 😛 I’ll give you time to guess….

There we go! XD They are fish!

Get ready for a lot of words… :[]

You might remember a post about our crayfish a few months ago. Crayfish are really neat, but the one problem is algae. We gave them tons of rocks and other hiding places, but the thing with that is they get lots and lots of algae on. We were cleaning our big ten-gallon tank every two weeks! And it only stayed clean about one week.

On Monday we decided that maybe the crayfish should go to the pond. We hoped that if they weren’t in there and their hiding places weren’t in there then it would take longer for the algae to come. Oh wait, did I mention that the crayfish had forests of algae growing on their back? Yes, they did. And you can’t very well put them in boiling water and scrub them with an old tooth brush like you can their hiding places.

Anyway, Allison and Logan took them down to our creek to live in open spaces. Jeff and I (with some… help… from Carmen) cleaned all the algae off the tank and the rocks. We got rid of the big rocks that collected algae, and then we begged mom to let us go get fish after supper.

Mom and Dad consented and after supper we went to Petco. We took about an hour deciding and getting our fish, and then back home we went to put them in the tank. Now there were no crayfish to rip off their fins (yes, one unfortunate fish met that fate) and they swim about quite happily with our old minnows. Right as I type I can see all our fish swimming about in the tank.

Whew! That was a lot of words! If you got through that, you shall be rewarded with photos of the fishes (that is grammatically correct), all nine of them. 😛

Starting with Allison’s fish, named Mandy. She is a gold dust molly.

She’s a little camera-shy, but in this photo she’s the yellow one with the black eye. 😛

Then there’s Logan’s fish.

Name: Hal (Hungarian for ‘fish’)

Breed: Gold Panda Lyretail Molly

Jeff got a Red Wag Platy and he named it Freddy.

Carmen got two fish. One was a goldfish that she named Sarah.

Her other one is a Sunset Platy and she named it Coral, but we just figured out that ‘she’ is actually a male. 😛

And now for mine. 🙂 I also got two fish. The one is a Dalmation Molly and I named it Dixie.

My other one is what we call a ‘Sucker Fish’. XD He is really a Bristlenose Plecostomus. I named him S. J. which stands for Sucker Jones. 😛 He likes to hide, so I only got one picture of him when he was stuck to the tank. 😛

And then our old fish, Skippy and Thing 1 (Thing 2 died) we think are Bluntnose Minnows that we caught in a river. They are hard to tell apart, but here are some photos.

Wow… this post was rather long. XD You should know plenty about our fish now!

Whew, I finally got my weekly GIF up! :/ 😛

MCSFM Challenge!

K.A  made up this challenge a while ago, and now I am going to do it!

Here are the rules.

  1. make up a story problem with dogs in it.
  2. Choose 5 people to also do the challenge.
  3. Say what type of animal you have, what breed, what color it is, and what it’s name is, and what you like best about it!!!
  4. Find a new blog and comment on it, and share what blog it is
  5. Make up a few written sentences that will get your commenters wanting to see more!
  6. And lastly, share your favorite book series, or book or Books!

Here is my dog story problem. I think they are supposed to be like math problems. 🙂

If Maggie gets scratched by Jinx 5 times and then two days later she gets scratched 2 times, how many times has she gotten scratched?

Poor Maggie… 😥 XD

But for number two, here are the people I will nominate!

Genna Clara Jacelyn kittylover6 Nicole. Whew! That took a while!

Number three: I have a rabbit. She is a Holland Lop. She is light and dark brown (and very cute). Her name is Clementine, but I usually call her Clemmie. The thing I like best about Clementine is that she is so cute and curious. 😀 ♥

Okay, the new blog is, https://sparkofcreativity07.wordpress.com/. Check it out! 😀

My sentences: ‘It was terribly cold out in the bunny cage, and I was all alone in the corner. Well, I guess I could have gone in with the other bunnies, but they seemed like strangers now that I had been apart from them for a whole month.’

Whether you want to hear more or not, you will! That is going to be part of Clemmie’s diary entry which, I must say, is a tad late….

Anyway, my favorite book series is Anne of Green Gables! I love her imagination and the funny adventures she gets into. 😛 This quote is hilarious if you have read Anne of Green Gables.

So that’s it! 😀 I hope you enjoyed this little challenge. ;D

Colonial Tulips!

Howdeedoo!

You may be looking at the title thinking, “huh?” and I don’t blame you.  It is rather a strange title, but I couldn’t just say “Tulips,” could I?!

Well anywho, on to the point.  Our cousins from Canada came a few weeks/days ago and so we went to Colonial (aha!) Williamsburg with them.

At Williamsburg there is a Governor’s Palace, with Palace Gardens.  And in the gardens there are beautiful tulips!  So, I just had to post about them!

*Ahem*

Taaa-daaa!

And those are the tulips!  I will also give you the privilege of seeing a squirrel I saw in the garden.
