Good Morning Everyone. Nice to see all the pictures and videos of cuteness. Along with the beautiful scenery. Thank you for them.

Being back at work sucks. I wish I could do my own thing and not have to worry about a salary. Oh well such is life. We are busy having our house painted so of course the torts are back inside, which they are not too happy about. But at least the house will look nice once they are done. I will just have to make sure that all the paint etc is picked up before the torts go back out again. They have been permanently outside for four weeks now and are loving every minute of it. And I don't need to worry so much about their food as long as I make sure that they have plenty of good plants to graze from. Yayyyy me.

I bought a whole lot of seeds again and want to plant them and at some time in the future I want to make a DIY Hydroponics garden. As I think it will help with saving water as far as my plants are concerned. But that is a project for future.

In the meantime I am asking around by the tyre companies if any of them have any tyres which they are planning to scrap which I can maybe take off their hands and then I will use them to make myself some pot plants for three trees that I want to grow in my back garden to give it some colour and shade.

and a Moringa tree: The leaves from the Moringa tree will of course be very good food for the torts. So hopefully this time I will have much better luck with the seeds than I did before. And since it will be in a Tyre DIY Pot it cannot be destroyed by the lawn mowing company when they come to cut the grass in the garden.

Anyway that is me over and out until either tomorrow or Monday again. Chat to you all soon.


Hurry, get your torts back out in the garden! Interesting choice of seeds/trees. When we first moved into this house I had an Empress tree growing in a pot, but it didn't do well once transplanted. I probably shocked the fast growing roots. Paulownia tomentosa (common names princess tree, empress tree, or foxglove-tree, is a deciduous tree in the family Paulowniaceae, native to central and western China. It is an extremely fast-growing tree, and is a persistent exotic invasive in North America.

Have fun planting!

I hope the scan today was OK. I'll be thinking of you and sending all good wishes for a positive result.
Thank you much. Scan did not show a pulmonary embolism thank goodness. But it did show I have some enlarged lymph nodes just in my chest so now I have to see a pulmonologist and I have to go see the cardiac specialist still also. Thank you all for the kind words. Im so tired of all of these tests I just want to feel well. I am waiting for both specialists to call me to set an appointment. Hopefully it's something simple but I am starting to give up hope it going to be simple. Hope everyone in the CDR is well and healthy happy new year as well

So glad it's not a PE and really hope they can soon find a diagnosis for you and treat you appropriately.
It must be very wearing for you but try to stay positive and we are always here if you need to chat.
Take care.

I'll be hoping and praying for you and your doctors. Once I got on the actually right medication I started feeling better. It took awhile.

That is just sooooo cute.
She is...and she's doing really well being loose at night in my room with me. I've done that since the new year. But...if I put on my shopping shoes she still goes hopping into her cage like a good little girl...and I'm supposed to fall for that hook line and stinker. The funny thing is, I can always feel my rabbit. Even if I'm sleeping.

That’s a very good question Cathie, I’m going to do some research:D
I've actually read some stuff on it about animals...after I saw my tortoise yawn I got curious and started looking. The subject is really interesting to me because if I can't yawn it means I need my rescue inhaler for a deeper breath. The articles did say it was for extra oxygen among other reasons.

Y’all think Cinder is ready to go home? We have to get moving and beat the bad weather. It’s looking ominous down here!!!

Random hello to all!
It's Friday and I am ready for the weekend.
A little something for everyone here in the CDR. A drawing I finished a few days ago.
Titled this one "Slow Burn"
