Orchid Chronicles

My mom’s been on a strange little orchid kick lately. She was obsessed for a while with acquiring an orchid and she finally found one on clearance at Kroger for $5, so she snatched it. If you know anything about orchids, you know $5 is HELLA CHEAP.

Here’s the little beast.

The Terrarium Project

I bought a new betta fish two weeks ago, but he died suddenly a few days later. My mom thinks it’s because I placed him next to the house phone and EMFs killed him. I’m not sure why he died, but I had an empty bowl sitting in my kitchen for a week.

So this weekend, I decided to put Ultraviolet, my purple betta, into the smaller bowl – it’s cozier, and the other 2 bettas seems to enjoy the space in theirs. Plus, it’ll be much easier and safer to lift the smaller bowl when it’s time for a water change and cleaning.

I converted the big bowl into an open terrarium. I left the pebble rocks at the bottom and used the potting soil that was in the plants’ store pots and covered the remaining space with moss. I’m very happy with the way this little project turned out and I’ve placed it in the center of our living room coffee table.

I want to make more terrariums and place them everywhere. It’s a fun and easy project and it means more oxygen in the house!

Liquidity

On my days off, I far too often procrastinate and/or otherwise not do things I want to do because I can’t choose what I should do. It’s a struggle. BUT! Today was not one of those days.

I decided late in the afternoon, close to sunset, that I’d put on lipstick and suck on some ice cubes. For photography’s sake. This was really simple experiment and actually really fun. I soaked the entire front of my hoodie and had to take it off after the shoot.
