Rochelle  {JW} Princess living happily forever after. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§ Head in the clouds 🌈, feet on the ground πŸ“–, heart 'neath the waves🌊. πŸ’… I bottle rainbows! πŸ‘‡

I made myself a journaling / papercrafting / art account, for anyone who is into that sort of thing.

This is a Golden Tortoise Beetle. Lookit those little feets!
File under: how have I not known about these before??
🐞 The same size as a ladybug, but not in the ladybug family. These beetles change color! Their shell is clear and they control a reflective liquid layer on their body to create a golden color. The two I've seen have looked like this, so they are either agitated or dehydrated! Check out the tag #goldentortoisebeetle to see their wide color range!
Joe and I think they look like the leather crafting item in Minecraft.

I have some nice bug pictures that were taken in our backyard over the past month. I'm starting things off gently: spiders coming later! πŸ’—
πŸ“ This is a Pale Beauty Moth. Very apt name! We found it sleeping on the underside of a Japanese maple leaf. Between the difficult angle, odd lighting, and wind πŸƒ it was tough to get good pictures of this sleeping subject.

Freya occasionally watches TNG with us... She made this awesome space picture. Some of the highlights:
- our sun and Jupiter
- Freya's adorable signature
- the Borg ship and the USS Enterprise
Yup, that's our kid.

Regular me vs. riding into the sunset me. πŸŒƒ 😝 πŸŒ†
Yesterday I wore eyeshadow for the first time in I-don't-know-how-long. 😢 I forgot how much I like it. πŸ˜‚
πŸ’… Nails by me! #CinderellaDrivesaHybrid and #Luminance @PrincesslyPolished.

Thank you to my brother for this photographic evidence of my daughter and I! πŸ“· She was very well behaved yesterday despite having a cold. 😊


βœ‚ Swipe to trim! βœ‚
Thank you, Mom, for being trustworthy with a pair of shears! πŸ’‡ 😱
Haven't done anything to my hair since Summer 2015. That was when I had the silver put in, under a natural color-to-dark chocolate ombrΓ©, yum. I think about 3 inches was trimmed then? From there I decided to let my natural hair color come back and see how long my hair could grow. Apparently, it will grow on forever... πŸ˜‚
The longest hair was past my butt, longest it's ever been in my life, I think. While it IS epic mermaid hair, hair this long gets sat on, shut in drawers, stuck in waistbands... 😢 I think waistband-length is long enough for me! 😊
Fun facts:
🍫 I'm still washing my hair with chocolate! (cocoa + baking soda)
πŸ‘΅ My silver hair is still there, about 12 inches... When it makes a rare appearance people usually compliment my green streak?? I guess I've tarnished. πŸ˜‚

Signs of spring! Lovely weather today.

I have a new phone... The camera is pretty nice. I should try to share pictures more often. Hmm... πŸ˜•

This blanket is the perfect disguise! 🐳 No one is going to find me out... 😏 (this was a gift from my seastar-in-law. 🌊 πŸ’™)

No editing, because it would never come close to the gorgeousness of reality anyway. But we just had the most beautiful sunrise. It had streaks of purple, but I missed those.

Yesterday was rough for me, so thank you Jehovah for this pretty sight to start my day! πŸŒ„

Dinners are gonna be cheap and easy this week! πŸ˜€πŸ¬πŸ­
I don't celebrate the holidays, but I have lots of fun everyday! πŸ˜‰

Here is the progress of Mr. Fish! He is getting harder and harder to photograph, so I know he's feeling better! Constantly swimming.
β€’ So, from the day I brought him home til now, the most obvious difference is how his fins are growing back in. Looks like he'll have some double rays on those spikes!
β€’ But I really can't get over how his color is developing. I was expecting a slate blue betta with red wash. He definitely does have red wash, that's obvious, but within the past week he has started to show iridescence! Looks like he is surprising me by turning into a multricromatic "copper" betta! 😱😍
Just goes to show what proper care can do for our creatures. 😊
β€’ He's also much more outgoing now. I didn't photograph him much early on because he'd get stressed out after a few minutes of being stared at. Now he wants to check everyone and everything out.

Oh, and he's good friends with Freya, too. She loves him! But won't accept any name suggestions (even ones she comes up with). So he's still Mr. Fish to us.
