I haven't got back over to that other thread, but wanted to tell you I hadn't forgot about you. I saw that you had a blog, so thought I'd read here.

Are you posting photos of your spideys in other forums? Why not here?

I went out and worked for some more acorns. I gave away all but one (1) and couldn't figure out how to give it away so could never get to zero. It was weird. I now have 75. Do you need anymore?

@TsFlowers I have rather failed to post anything new in the other thread, as you may have noticed, as I seem to have been having some difficulty with it, in much the same way I have had difficulty returning letters and emails in the past. I'm pretty bad at correspondences, my apologies.

Thank you for the offer of acorns, but I find myself content, right now, and ready to push to earn acorns, should I decide to put a drive into getting or using them. I don't know if that makes sense, it's almost 4am for me and I'm well aware I should be sleeping. Obviously, I am not.

As to pictures, I usually write blog posts on my computer, on which I don't have my pictures. My old phone couldn't put pictures on this particular site, either, though my new phone can.

The short answer is that I'm a bit too lazy to put pictures in, after the fact and from my phone. I don't do too many pictures, though I do think I should un-lazy and start doing them a bit more often, seeing how much I enjoy photography and my plants. That particular intersection of my interests should probably get a bit more of the light of day, at least here.

I have a bit of a hard time with self-motivating, which also accounts for the months I'll take to get back to projects, blogs, websites, et al. (as well as my lack of photo inclusion in my posts, here)

I'm an outside person myself. Don't like cold weather that much, but I adjust partially. I'm going through a bit of slump myself. For me, I think posting photos has helped me. I have outside work myself; the leaves of my maples are really fallen/falling now, so I need to get to mowing/bagging them up for my compost pile. So I need to self-motivate too, which I'm not finding the easiest, but I guess sometimes we have to take over *our selves* with force. Sometimes I have to take a step at a time. Today, I'll force myself to go out and mow up (mower has a bagger) at least a few of those leaves. And then I'll praise myself for at least getting that one thing done, and then the next day (weather permitting), I'll set for myself one other small project and force myself to get that done. Each time I'll feel good about myself because I got my project done when I really didn't want to. And then each day I'll start feeling a little better. [I've spent 3 total weeks 2/1 in a mental facility, diagnosed bi-polar, so I have some experience with many things.]

But, if you don't feel like posting photos here, that's really not a *must*. Taking care of your indoor plants is good. Hoping for you to "enjoy the things you enjoy"!
