Saturday morning Sheba and/or Nina picture

Things appear to be getting more or less back to normal for me, following the Times article, which is sort of a relief and sort of not. I mean, overall it was a good thing, but I was running pretty close to having all of my time spoken for already, before this all happened, and now there's that much more e-mail to deal with. So: if I owe you e-mail, I am most likely aware of it, and working on a reply, but . . . all of our operators are currently busy assisting other customers; please stay on the line; we value your business.

Meanwhile, this week's Sheba and/or Nina picture is an older one, from Nina's terrarium-cleaning this summer. She was doing something really adorable on Wednesday night (sleeping on a Vriesea leaf, tail curled up, eyes closed), but I couldn't get a picture of that -- there's not enough light in my office once the timer shuts off Nina's light, and of course if I turned on a light to get the picture, I'd just wake her up and wouldn't get the shot anyway -- so I'm sorry.

Also, it's soon going to be time to do something about the Pellionia, which has, amazingly, nearly covered the floor of the terrarium and is working on crawling up parts of the walls as well. I am, frankly, amazed at the difference between growing it in the terrarium and growing it in a pot in the living room: when it likes where it is, it's very fast. Fittonia fans will be relieved to know that the Fittonia is holding its own.

What a cute shot of Nina; looks like she's trying to push her way out of there.

You should make some terrariums and sell them. You'd obviously be very good at it.

Nice pic of Nina.

Super cute. She looks like a stone cold bug killer.

You go! I usually always check the blog on Saturday to see Sheba and/or Nina and then work my way back through the posts, but I have been busy and preoccupied with music stuff. I have just now discovered the NYT article. Good for you. You look really cute in your pic, btw.
