Peeps and new goldfish  
First off here are the new peeps I got yesterday. Aren't they pretty and cute?

I'm so glad they've re-released these. They are small and I don't remember if they made bigger ones. I should take pics of my whole Peeps collection or make a youtube video about them. Anyway, more Easter stuff and goldfish behind the cut.

Here's another view of them. I was playing with them at CVS and Chris bought them all for me.

This is the candy tray I put out every year now. It's got a cute chick in the center and is full of pastel dark chocolate M&M's.

Here is a close up of the chick.

My Easter tree. I didn't find the glass eggs this time so I just went with the simple glitter eggs that were easier to find.

Found these at Wal-mart. What a blatant Peep's rip off. It's from something called Hop. I guess it's an Easter movie that's out. I don't watch TV at all anymore so shows how in touch I am with the outside world. If so it would be good because Easter has the fewest movies of any holiday. I can only think of two and I have both. It's too bad the chicks are dressed like thugs. I wonder if they're the bad guys. As far as taste I have yet to open them and try them.

Meet the new goldfish. This one will be the indoor pet that I keep. The other three are gone. They're in the outside pond. So this is the one I'll try to tame and play with. I like his colors and he's very different from all the other red and white fish I've had. Gosh I still miss Moby. Losing him still hurts. I hope this one will be as good. I chose this one because his colors make him look like a koi and he has blue eyes. All my others had the pretty yellow with a red ring.

Actually I hope it's a female since females are fatter and I guess less nervous. At least from what I've seen.

The weather's really sucked. It started raining last night and it has not let up. What a bad time for me to have put out the frame for the chicken coop. We put it out yesterday evening. No walls and no roof and it's raining. Not only that but it's supposed to be raining all week. I am not happy. I'm worried that I may have to put off my long trip to visit my friend and I've been planing this for a long time. Come on, March is not supposed to be a rain month. Hurrican season isn't until June. No rain! I'm truely solar powered and the lack of light has had me a bit moody today.

But it has been a good day. I got my first over seas Nepenthes seeds in the mail for a red bicalcarata. I've already planted them. I hope they'll do well. I hope I'll get several to come out and that I can get males and females. I got a bunch of popsicle sticks and have been using them as plant lables. I know Nepenthes are slow sprouters and growers but I can't wait for them to sprout. I wish it would happen right now. It can take a month. Gosh I hope not. Now that I have the grow light set up I put my little Nepenthes plant under it too. No more moving it in and out of the sun. I can just leave it under that lamp. Heh, not that I could put it in the sun with this crappy weak we'll have weather wise.

I'm surprised you don't have the blue polka dot Peep chick unless your CVS didn't have it. That's the one I always play with if ours has it. I want the solid blue one. We have a ton of Peep Easter decorations, and I don't even remember where some of them came from.

That's a pretty goldfish.

You aren't the only one who is hating this weather. It was cold and wet here too. We need the rain, but I wish it had at least stayed in the 70's.

They didn't have a blue polka dot peep. I may already have it from the first run too. I really need to put out my huge tupper ware where they're all stuffed and take inventory, and pics.
Ah, I DO have that one. It's put away. Here's the original post. THe one after if you click on the Peeps tag shows me boxing them up.

Thanks. I really like his colors.

We need it too but it's going on 24 hours now. I think all the plants will drown. Enough already. Yeah it's getting cold here now too.

I know. I LOVE this time of year for that. It's such a fun care free time.

I love the Peeps! Especially the chicks hehe. I've seen trailers for that movie. I have no idea from them what happens in it though. Its out on friday here. The rabbit is disgustingly cute.
I LOVE your aquarium gravel!!

Hope it stops raining soon. Last week we had low lying mist for two days and then it was nice and sunny. Today it's cloudy and I hope it doesn't rain cos that means it will get colder.
Des: White Peep and rainbowthagirion on March 29th, 2011 01:34 pm (UTC)
Thanks. They're such neat things. Hum, I'll have to check out the trailers then and see if it's something I'd be interested in.
Thanks. Yeah, I wanted it to have an 80's look.

The sun is kind of out today but everything's cold and wet still. But gosh, because of this all these other grouds sprouted all at once.

Looks like you're getting a wet spring! I hope it clear up after wetting the ground thoroughly for your new plants.

Ah, pretty fishie!

Thanks. They're so soft and fun to play with.

I hope it gets it out of its system soon and goes back to sunny.

Thanks. He's really cute.

I like how everything has these pastel tones on your Easter stuff, that really fits very well! Pretty!
I think we will start with our Easter decorations sometime next week, Easter is so damn late this year.

The movie Hop looks really nice, I have seen a few trailers already. XD I'm going to see it just because it is about Easter, chicks and rabbits.

It's a great time of year. I'm glad it's so far into April. I like it to be in April because March has St. Patrick's day. And being late gives me lots of time to prepare instead of it sneaking up on me.

I'll check out the trailer.

Cute peeps! I especially like the purple bunny.

The little chick tray with the M&Ms is really cute, too.

And yeah, the weather's been kinda crappy here too lately. There for a little while, it was actually starting to warm up and I was thinking oh boy, I get to start wearing shorts outdoors again soon. But then it decided to get colder again. I have definitely lost my tolerance for the cold.
Des: Spring is here Chicksthagirion on March 29th, 2011 08:36 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah the bunnies are really nice.

When I saw that a few years a go it was the only one and the others were bunnies. The bunnies just weren't as nice so I'm glad I got that little chick.

Oh man, I feel for you. I hate wearing pants.

Oh, those peeps are cute. I didn't know they came as little stuffed animals.

I hope the rain lets up for you. It's been raining all night and day here and spots are beginning to flood. Ick.
Des: Spring is here Chicksthagirion on March 30th, 2011 11:37 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Yeah, they've made all kinds of peeps stuff over the years.

Tomorrow will be bad, but hopfully it will be ok for my Friday drive. Though I'd rather it not rain at all.
