fixing stuff

Category: garden plans and adventures | Posted: Wed Sep 13, 2006 3:53 am

Not much garden related to tell. I do still have the two pumpkin plants. Now that it's finally decided to rain around here and be cooler, they might make it.
Oh, and sadly my digital camera has ceased to take pictures. Its an older Elph. Can't afford a new one at the moment, so when I can I'll use the old tried and true instant camera for a pic. I'm way to impatient for developing pictures, though. Even hour developing is just too long! I'm spoiled and I love digital photography! What can I say? Take the pic and see it! I love that.
Several projects I've worked on, and am about to do.
Started a new fish tank. The old one was acrylic and looked to be fracturing all over. So I went for the reliable glass and got a larger one. Its turned out great and I intend to start expermenting with aquarium plantings once I get myself caught up in other things.
Other things.. painting the house. I decided on a deep green olive color. Next week we're getting to that. The Mr. is home that week and it's our mission to get that and caulk all those offensive drafty spots. I cannot wait! If you saw in one of my first entries, my house is like a pale shrimp pink. Its really, really awful. Also, I figure that after we're done tromping around the place with ladders and paint, that I can feel free to plant some shrubs around the foundation. Haven't quite made up my mind what kind.
Boring stuff... Trying to find a night job. I watch my son all day, and night is really the only convenient time to work. Unfortunately, there's not much to choose from. I'll probably end up as a checker somewhere. I'd really like something more interesting, but everything's taken apparently.
I have windows I need to replace and that takes some cash.

Looks like you will be very busy next week!! Deep green olive will be a very nice color for your home!! Oh I'm sorry about your camera!! I love the digital cameras too!! I hope you are able to get another soon!! I can't wait to hear about your aquarium plants!! That sounds very exciting and interesting! We used to have an aquarium and I loved to watch the fish in it. We had zebra tetras that bred!! The kids were so excited every time a new batch were born. They loved to help seperate them into their little baby basket we had attached to the side, so the male fish would not eat them!! We had an algae bloom that killed them all, and we just decided not to get anymore fish. I really miss my aquarium!!

Aquariums are wonderful to watch. So much better than the TV. I had several years ago and I miss them.
