Although I've already posted in another thread, I decided it would probably be good for me to post here as well, so, Hello! My husband and I bought our home in Parkside, though we've been living in Savannah for nearly 12 years. I work from home doing illustration and generally maintain a garden when capable. We have a variety of furry, finned and scaled children- by next year I hope to make a decision on whether I can physically handle adding feathered to the list. They are: Casie is our 15 year old pit mix (we call her our potato dog) suffering with nasal adenocarinoma. We feed her a home made cancer fighting diet. Genesis is my 15 year old scottish fold, cat <3 My best pal. Olley, a 10 year old dsh- currently the only indoor/outdoor cat Bob and Mynah, the 5 year old rescue cats Bobaface, the 8-ish year old bearded dragon 3 brown anoles Maggie, Phan, and...******* (pardon) are our three oldest goldfish of nearing 8 years Abigale, second oldest goldfish from a spawn of Maggie and Phan, about 3 years old Current 3 youngest goldfish are only about 6 months old and are nameless. Also Maggie and Phan spawn. So far my oldest fish, my hypostomus plecostomus, Disco, who we guesstimate to be about 14 years old. She still has a while to go. Raphie-cat, the striped raphael catfish..around 8 years old, +- some. Gambusia (mosquito fish) 1 guppy..3 were a new addition after I swore off fish for 2 years. Two of them pulled a houdini the first night and ended up as guppy-jerky :/ 1 emperor scorpion Hissing cockroaches, dubia and discoid roaches (seems like a lot when it's all written out..) I love to garden, edibles are my top priority but I also appreciate wildflowers and wildlife attractive natives. Nothing makes me happier than digging in the dirt, turning compost, and watching my hard work grow into something beautiful or edible..or both. Lastly, I suffer from fibromyalgia (and the cfs that comes with it), tinnitus, dysmenorrhea, and endometriosis. It is uncertain whether I may be working my way towards arthritis. We do our best to try and manage my issues but as it happens, fibro tends to take cycles and 2012-2013 has been a long and unpleasant one. Sadly it is keeping me from doing the things that give me the most joy. I try to be positive, but it can be severely crushing. For now, I just sit outside and enjoy the songbirds at our feeders.
