Saturday Morning

It's Saturday morning and we are hanging out.  As I type this Oliver and Zoey are sharing the hubs lap and Aggie and Phoebe are laying with me.  Clooney just finished playing with velcro - he does love some velcro and now he has climbed up on the bed for some pets and a nap.

The rest of the ferrets are snoozing after an active morning of playing and wrestling.  Emma is sleeping after her 5 mile walk.  The fishies are doing whatever fishies do all day - they have had a breakfast of pellets, flakes and worms and seem content.  I got some aquarium test strips in the mail yesterday and was able to test their water.  While the tank hasn't completed a cycle yet - that usually takes 6 - 8 weeks, I was happy to find that their water is actually pretty good and not at any dangerous levels.  I will continue to test daily and do 10 - 20% water changes as needed.

It's a pretty laid back morning - after the last couple of crazy work weeks we can use some down time...  :)
