I decided that one of the things I wanted to do with my blog was post weekly “My Week in Instagram” posts. I thought it would be a fun way to share some of what has been going on with me in case I get too busy to post like I want to. So, let’s begin!
I was so excited to finally get my copy of the Heart of the Swarm Collector’s Edition for SCII! It’s been ages since I played StarCraft (like, over a year sadly…) but when I’ve had the chance this week I’ve been derping through the campaign and having an absolute blast! Blizzard has really outdone themselves with this campaign, and if you are a StarCraft fan and haven’t gotten this expansion yet, DO IT!
In order for me to get the guinea pigs into their new cage (that I had to build), I needed to dismantle the cage I had for them in the old house because I needed the grids for the new cage. And of course, Picasso just couldn’t help himself. He had to climb into the half taken-apart cage while I was working on it… He’s lucky he’s so damn cute!
I moved Picasso from the house to my apartment last week. He usually is very brave and doesn’t meow a ton, but when I put him in his kitty carrier and strapped it into the front seat of my van, he was not having it! He meowed for most of the drive to my new place, and was a very unhappy kitty lol
However, it clearly didn’t take him long to get used to his new home, because I took this picture a few hours after letting him out of his kitty carrier lol
With the old guinea pig cage dismantled, I could finally work on putting together the new one! That’s the base for the 2-story cage I designed. It allows me to have storage for their hay, food, extra bedding, and cleaning supplies.
And here’s their cage with the first floor walls attached. So many zip ties used! O.O
Picasso has been up to his usual antics during his first week at the apartment. Lots of rolling to expose his belly and meowing adorably, racing from one end of the apartment to the other, getting into things he shouldn’t be, etc. I’m glad he’s made himself at home… lol
I unpacked/put away my china! My parents had this in storage for me for years, and now that I finally have my own place, I can have it. It’s absolutely stunning white china with blue flowers and silver edging on it. If I remember correctly… my dad said that my mom’s uncle was a merchant sailor and got it from China probably…… 50 or so years ago? All of my siblings have a set, so it’s really special to me :)
Despite the cage not being finished, I had furniture coming to my apartment from the old house so I needed to get the girls into at least part of their new cage. I could tell that they were so happy to be in it, because they kept running laps and popcorning (they hop in the air, just like a corn kernel ‘popping’).
And finally, Picasso really seems to like his new kitty condo I put together for him this week. He’s a little large for the house on it, but he doesn’t care lol It has a ton of scratching posts for him (which is good because he’s a scratching maniac!!) and it’s right next to the guinea pig cage in the office so he can watch them with ease (he likes to hang out next to them lol).
Well, that’s that I guess! Those are all my instagram photos I took from last week. One major thing that happened that I didn’t get in the pics though was my orchestra concert I had Saturday night, but that’s because my phone was dead as a doornail because of a new game my boyfriend got me into >_> But I hope you all liked that, and remember you can always follow me on Twitter and Instagram, where all of these pics are also posted!
