zero ppm's

0 ppm's

see that color there? that means no ammonia in the fishy tank! it has taken a little more than a month to get the ammonia levels safe. that's very common for a new fish tank set up. though the literature with my tank said to run the system for 24 hrs. before introducing fishes, everything else i read later said to let it run for a month. during this time, there isn't enough good bacteria in the tank to naturally take care of the ammonia. live and learn, and hopefully not kill the cute fish!

in keeping with the season and upcoming holidays, i started my paperwhites. i still have two more bulbs that need to find a container. i love their fragrance when they bloom!

and, i think this was the last hurrah for my plants. this picture was actually taken yesterday (or the day before ?).
they're in for good now. have you ever seen a succulent freeze? boy, it's nasty.

i couldn't sleep tonight. maybe i went to bed too early (9:30 pm)? i've been up since 2am. i knitted awhile, then, got on the computer. i figure i'll be ready to sleep as soon as the sun comes up and the morning traffic blasts by my windows. i especially love the sounds of big city trucks and the sounds of them shifting gears! (yes, i am joking!)

oh! i found this yummy recipe online. i'm thinking it will be tasty for dinner tonight!
