  • Frogs & Snails

    So I finally got some new frogs and, being a delinquent frog mom, I haven’t even blogged about it! I just had to look back through my credit card statement to find out when I bought them – turns out it was April 30! I bought five frogs – though sadly one of them was […]

  • NaBloPoMo Day 5 – The Forgotten Suitcase

    I’m heading out on a trip to Washington, DC for a conference and since I’ll be there for a week, I decided that I’ll need to take my comically large suitcase and not just my carry-on, because I don’t travel light and I like shoes. The suitcase in question is the purple suitcase that I bought […]

  • Frogs Need Birthdays Too

    Celebrating the kitties’ birthday got me to thinking about how I have no idea when the froggies’ birthdays are. I don’t know if they all share the same birthday or if they have different birthdays. And, come to think of it, I don’t even know if you are supposed to celebrate the day the frog […]

  • Frog Stand

    In my old apartment, I had built in gas fireplace with a spot above the mantle that was originally meant to hold those old boxy cathode ray tube TVs, but which made a very good place for a frog tank. My new place doesn’t have the built in gas fireplace, so when I moved in, […]

  • Happy BC Family Day

    Today was a stat holiday in BC. Family Day to be specific. It’s only the second year we’ve had it and, I must say, it’s really nice to have a 3-day weekend in February. Especially because I had a 10:30 pm hockey game last night and it is sooo hard to get up in the […]

  • Froggies are a gateway pet

    There comes a time in every woman’s life that she must become a crazy cat lady. For me, that time is now. You may recall that I recently did some cat sitting and decided that cats are the awesome and I want one. Well, you know what’s better than one? Two. Two is better than […]

  • Rick the Frog

    My niece has an aquatic African dwarf frog, just like my fraggle of frogs. She used to have two frogs, Bob and Rick, but Bob passed away and now there is only Rick. This is Rick: Isn’t he adorable? Last night, after everyone else had gone to bed, I was watching Rick – I’m worried […]

  • The frogs’ stockings were hung by the chimney with care

    Last year  I made a comment lamenting my lack of little Christmas stockings for my frogs. Well, it was my Aunty Gwen to the rescue – she found me these little gems: So, yes, I realize it’s not yet December, but since I’m going to visit my family at Christmas, I had to put my […]

  • House Guests

    For the next 11 days, I’m having some house guests. Pepper has decided that she’s the Queen of the Bed: And Taiko has decided that he’s Captain of the Chair: Happily, neither of my house guests appear to have taken any notice of my fraggle of frogs. I’ve secured the tank lid to keep out […]
