At's been a long week, not really sure why. I was up very late making beads, so there might be some later..

I was browsing Etsy this morning and was happily surprised to find my discs in a treasury, and another----I love what she did with them! And she has an awesome prize for the 200th sale!

It a gray can hope for rain, we're still behind. It's been unseasonably warm, and the planting urge is strong, but it could, in theory, snow yet. Blech..

Moshe's crickets finally arrived. I must remember never to order this size again---I ordered 3/8" instead of 1/2", thinking that he would be able to eat more of them before they grew too large. Well, they are small enough that he'll have a hard time catching them, and, worse, they can climb the sides of their container! We keep them in a plastic tote with holes in the lid, with food and water. Once I got the box emptied in there, a whole wave of them started up the side of the container. I think it's because they're so light, their weight doesn't pull them down.
I finally made a sticky tape barrier by taping across the edges towards the insde, like concertina wire, and so far none have gotten past. We've agreed never to open the cricket tote without a cat or two on hand!
