Has everyone found the new location for the blog? Post a comment or something so I know and can stop being paranoid, okay?

So after scrubbing the algae off the ornaments and plants from the tank yesterday, I came to the conclusion that a) I couldn't get them really clean anymore, and b) the scrubbing had started really taking the paint off. So it was time for a new look for the tank. Fast forward to the afternoon, and...




If not for the reflection, this would be an awesome picture of two of the yoyos checking out the new digs...


The two platies in the background there admiring the new backdrop.

It was also time to change the bulb in the light for the tank, and the only 18" one that Paradise had was the POWER-GLO. Now everything just POPS!

Our foster Darwin's been doing okay, but he's bored out of his tree here. Small backyard, little chance for walks last week between Mike's working late/after-work meetings, my trigger point injections, and the uncooperative weather. He's not interested in toys, and plays like a regular dog, which freaks Priest out so he doesn't play back. I'm tempted to arrange a play date for him tomorrow with Chester, just to keep him from going completely stir crazy.

I reffed at the Red Deer Open on Saturday, and am heading down to Calgary to DT the Don Laszlo Memorial Open for my old fencing club on Friday. Stop by the Uni if you want to visit a little! There's always downtime at DT.

There has been knitting, but no washing or blocking, so I don't have pictures. I hope to be done Lisa's shawl today, and will then set aside part of tomorrow night (unless I arrange the aforementioned play date) for washing and blocking five scarves and one shawl. I hope we don't have company this week, because the guest room will be full of drying knitting! And then there will be photos!

Found the blog!
Oh to have a guest room to dry the knitting in. It sits on our combined kitchen/living room floor at the moment, taking up necessary space and risking the danger of food and footprints...

I found the blog :-) It didn't wander far :-)

Yes, I've changed my bookmark! That aquarium looks wonderful - I could sit and watch it for hours.

I know what you mean about the banner - I discovered I could change my blog banner, then threw something up quickly, but haven't been back to make something better/nicer. It's on my list, though!
