Yep I’ve made a Thankful Thursday Badge Copyrighted THE PONY EXPRESSION. Please be respectful and ask permission before using it. The painting of a poppy and the photograph of the bird are both owned by me. I cropped them then pasted them together specifically for this badge.

I have to tell you that I am overwhelmingly thankful for these two pieces of art. What joy they bring to my heart every time I gaze upon them.
I spent yesterday reorganizing my room. All my totes are now stacked up in the corner next to the door with Dragons habitat propped up on top of them. By doing this I have opened up more space in the room and Dragon is a wee bit warmer being up higher in the room. I believe he will feel a bit more secure also when people enter the room. Being up higher allows him to peer down upon them, in stead of the other way around. To make this adjustment I had to finish up the painting of that corner of the room. Yay! Closer to being done!
This meant that the TV could be moved and the desks could be organized so that my plants could be more consolidated in front of the window. They now share a space with a 10 gallon fish tank that Heather gave to me. It will house Connor the betta fish and a live pond plant, most likely an unbrella plant…
…along with a handful of Fathead Minnows (Rosey Reds).
My fish tank wont be the most spectacular, but it will be a sustainable ecosystem driven off of natural bacterias with no extra lighting or pumps or heaters. In other-words it will be completely self contained. Most folks use Rosey’s as bait fish or feeder fish, and if you havent kept them as pet hobby fish you are missing out. They are so personable compared to most schooling fish. Just stick your hand in the water and they’ll be all over it nibbling away and they’ll come racing out to greet you at dinner time too. Sweet little fish that glow with an iridescent sheen on a light pinkish golden body.
I love fish and for this little ecosystem I am very grateful. The serenity it will provide and hours of visual enjoyment and let’s not forget the companionship it will provide means the world to me.
Ive had a great day today. Got a good nights rest and woke up easy. Went to Kettlebells class and received a good workout. Walked to the post office and found my large Bluebird photograph waiting for me to pickup. A while later I was off to receive a wonderful massage and now I’m sitting back with a beer in hand with nothing more to do than to say THANK YOU!
