A Quick Upgrade

What does it mean when you are obsessed and think about something all the time...that is me...with most things. I am a worrier. So I worried about the Betta in the bowl so I googled and found out he would be better in a bigger tank...nothing super big but definitely something with filtration and more room. So I picked up a 3.7 gallon and set it up.

King Arthur getting acclimated

Here he is getting acclimated to the new tank. It took a few hours from beginning till you really add him. I put some of his old water in with this tank as well. I also grabbed some more live plants.

King Arthur new tank in day

I have the pump turned to the lowest and the air coming out still seems a bit much if he crosses the vent dealiebob, I will watch him for a few days and if I worry about it (I am...) I will go to the store and talk to the guy he was so helpful before.  I did unplug it when I fed him so the food did not swirl around. He finally ate too...yay! Picked up some different food. This is just for blue Betta's...how the heck did he know?

King Arthur at night

Here he is at night. Way cool right? Not sure I will leave it on or not. I told Jeff to turn it off when he gets up to go to work. I hate seeing the plug in but I like him angled in the corner.

We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat...

...bowl.

King arthur

I got a bunch of old stamp sets etc. from my friend and among all of the boxes was a pretty fish bowl. She had used it for door prizes etc. I washed it up and set it on the counter.

Then I thought hey maybe we need a fish. We had a fish tank years ago when we lived in Mesa and we had a Betta (pronouced Bet-ta - did you know that?  I always said Bay-ta) years ago too. I know he was in a bowl and we had him quite a while but my memory sucks.

So I headed to the petstore after my downline Make n Takes n Lunch (Toby in his old age needs canned dog food now) and got everything to set up the bowl. It looks so darling and "King Arthur" is what I call him since he is a Crown Tail Male Betta is so beautiful. But now I think I want a bigger tank for him.  Not like a huge one that takes up a whole wall but a nice 3 - 5 gallon one that has a filter and a pump, and a light that can sit in the corner on the kitchen counter.

Do any of you have a Betta? What do you use? What do you suggest? Anything you have learned with your experience?

But it's the WAY she cries...

...that makes me laugh so hard.

Watching "Something's Gotta Give" while I made thank you cards this weekend and it has been years since I saw that movie...in fact I kept thinking it was called "As Good as it Gets" - till I started the blog post and googled it....oh sweet google. But everytime that Diane Keaton would cry after she broke up with Jack Nicholson, had me laughing so hard...and it was not that I was laughing at her being heart broken cause that is not funny, but the way they had her cry...at everything.  If you have never seen the movie, or if it has been a while, watch it again, and see if you don't agree...and if you have not seen it...oops spoiler alert...too late! P.S. It's still good. P.S.S. It's got the original hubba! hubba! Starsky in it too!!! 

getting hair colored

So today I went for a hair cut and color...my hair dresser's hubby had the flu so I put off my appt a couple weeks (yes I am a germafobe is this is your first time reading my blog).  Eek, my hair grows fast and needed it bad.

I decided to be a little wacky and added some purple.

Purple hair

It is just subtle, Susan said if she put too much I might not like it so a bit at a time is better. She knows me so well.

What do you think? Are you thinking, good grief look at those under eye wrinkles? That is what I see...ugh!

Not Just for Valentines

Heart Happiness Diana Gibbs Dena Rekow case

My Dad has been in the hospital for a week. He went in with chest pains and they actually had to put in a few stents. That is just scary when I live so far away.  He should be going home, so that is good. But he is so freaking healthy that is what is crazy ya know. I mean this guy could do push ups with us sitting on him. He has muscles on muscles.  Then I think ugh, Jeff and eat not so healthy, and my excercise is basically stamp to paper...not too much workout there is it?

So I just want us all to be heart healthy and this is a great set to remind us that.
