I’m not a very still person. Maybe most crafty people aren’t.

For The Boy’s birthday this year we got him an aquarium for his office – a little company, a little humidity. I thought I would just go to the store, buy a tank, buy some fish and plug it in. I did’t know that it takes weeks to set-up an aquarium waiting for all of the balances and cycles to settle in – weeks until you can even buy a couple of fish.

Now though, after a few months we have a nice happy tank and I was surprised to find that I love it. I love watching the fish. Sometimes they’re peaceful, sometimes they play tag. Watching the fish is a real mental break that I never expected.
