Last night I cleaned up the tanks a little bit and added fresh food. My roman snails are enjoying their huge water soak dish so much. Sometimes two of them will sit there for hours. There’s one there right now even though it’s cold.
I hesitated to add this dish to the tank. It’s a calculated risk. A fall on top of it would surely cause shell injury. However, it is in the center of the large tank and nowhere near the edges. The mesh lid of my tank is covered in vines, and the snails don’t favor sleeping there, much preferring the glass walls or just burying themselves. Falls do happen, but they are always more like… slides, down the walls of the tank. So I think they are safe. And they enjoy this so, so very much.
But nonetheless I think I will try to find a plastic one that is similar. Or rather, softer plastic. This one is plastic but it’s too hard.
I really need to get to sharing photos of my little guys more often. I just love them so dearly.
Can’t wait for Christmas so I can nerd out with my new snail and slug book that everyone pitched in to get me. 🐌📚 I hope it helps me take better care of my snailios!
What do you want for Christmas most of all? Do you think you are going to get it?
I’m starting to regret my good intentions of not sharing my wishlist anywhere. ^_^; But, I would be a hypocrite if I shared it now, so I won’t.
So… to say our elves left me a little speechless this morning might be an understatement.
I’d been showing Christopher photos of the things Nate’s elf did to see if they get a little more inspired, as in previous years. So, last night, Christopher left the elves a little note, asking if they could make cookies for me like Nate’s elf. I am sorry to say it did not go as I might have hoped.
And, this might have been just me, but I felt like Buddy’s eyes had a real f*** you twinkle to them:
Message received, Buddy. I won’t compare you to other elves anymore! 🥺 I’m not sure your behavior would be approved by Santa, though.
Christopher said that maybe all chocolate is really elf poop and he just wasn’t able to finish, but somehow I can’t derive much comfort out of that idea. I think Buddy and Sarah just feel like their job doesn’t matter because while I’m getting presents this year, none are from Santa. Santa’s broke. So it doesn’t matter if I’m good, and I guess they don’t think they have to be good either. 🤔
Tuesday was pretty busy. I worked on commissions and on Discord freebies. I found a neat Youtube video to fullscreen on all my monitors and put Christmas music on while I worked… really nice atmosphere. 😊🎄
I’d also added some lights that I bought at Hobby Lobby (most of their Christmas stuff was gone) and a cute little Christmas dinosaur snow globe. I’ve always wanted a real snow globe and now I have a perfect one (though the snow settles super fast.) Here’s a little video of it:
It has music! And here’s a little look at my work area right now:
One of the Discord freebies I worked on was for Ruka. I’m looking forward to finishing it today:
When Christopher came home, we played Remember11 for an hour and right as we were going to stop Rosie stepped on the computer’s power button and we possibly lost all our progress. 🙃 That was bad but also hilarious.
Later, I made dinner: manicotti with Caesar salad and baked cheesy bruschetta. Christopher helped me fill the shells because I was having a tantrum over it PMS meltdown.
It was really good! I’m looking forward to leftovers. It was so good that I burned my mouth terribly and had to spit a whole lot of it out on a paper towel. I wanted to cry from the burn and also because it was so good I didn’t want to do that. But I was REALLY burning myself. Lol.
With this post I’m caught up on yesterday’s stuff, so it’s time to post about today (in a separate entry.)
