Rak, Triops and Mothers Day

So like usual I uploaded my pics wrong. This is a picture of my Triops that I am growing. The picture isn't really good. They are in the upper left corner in the picture. I bought the Triops at Hobby Lobby. With the coupon I think I paid $5ish for them. They start out like sea monkeys. You put the little eggs in the water and they grow. Actual adult size will be about an inch and a half I think. These things are awesome. Everyday they grow and shed their skin. They swim upside down and skim the water for things to eat. I bought them some sun dried shrimp and they love them. I don't think they live long but they are something different. We feed them daily. Now that they are bigger I need to change their water a little more. These are something I would recommend if you want to try something new.

This is what I'm working on for my mom for Mothers Day. There will be a Mother and a daughter and some flowers and things and below the house it says "My Mother My Friend". I think she'll love it. She knows how much I enjoy cross stitching and is always teasing me about never keeping anything for myself. She doesn't know I am making this for her and when she asks what I'm working on I have to lie so she won't know it is for her. I have a lot to go so I'm working my butt off to get it done by Saturday. Think I can do it?

And I got this beauty from Carein. It was a rak. I think this was the first surprise rak I have ever gotten. Thank you so much Carein I love it!! It is hanging proudly on my fridge :)
Thats it for now. Go out and buy some triops and let me see them. I'll take a better pic and post it in the future.
