Too Tired Tuesday

"If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be." — John R. Miller

Crazy day yesterday.... did y'all visit LASR for the Grand Opening bash? Lots of people did -- and we have more exciting stuff going on today. More books to give away. What are you waiting for?

Did you also go to Allie's blog and see about her HUGE gift basket of books, candy and more that she's giving away, along with a download of her book? If not (why not?)... go! It's awesome.


In Pillar Place: Swallowtail part two, the pillars have grown like mad. DD wants to name them Martin and Rose from her beloved Redwall series, so Martin and Rose it is. I just hope I can keep them in carrot greens long enough for them to make their happy little pupas.

And, Dru, I assume they hibernate over the winter inside there. We know Jill is alive (or was a couple weeks ago), because I set her out in the sun, hoping to encourage her to hatch and she wiggled and squirmed. I don't think she liked the heat.

I find it truly amazing that they can spend the winter outside, freeze, thaw and become such incredible butterflies.


For Anno :-)

You Are 45% Addicted to Blogthings

You're a Blogthings fiend - addicted but not totally dependent.
So what if you know your personality type by heart?
And while you may feel like Blogthings is crack...
There are people much worse off than you!

Whoa... I'm only 45% addicted, too! Kind of scary to imagine that there are others much worse off.

Thanks for the butterfly news, and congrats on the LASR launch!

LOL, Marianne - I saw Anno's comment yesterday... this was funny!

I got 50%, but it has the same attributes as yours. :)

I'm only 20%...They say I have very little chance of getting sucked in. Strong will and all that.

We have 'pillars too. One huge wooly bear and a mess of tussock moth dudes. We also have a mystery fellow who looks like a bald tussock moth 'pillar. I sent his pic in to several websites for an ID, but no one's written back yet. I think he'll live though 'cause he seems to like the oak leaves.

Oh, and I LOVED the story about DD and the toilet! (and thanks for the vacuum tip...)

The whole experience with hearing/reading about the pillars is so exciting.

Quiz has me at 45% addicted to blogthings.
