Good afternoon. It’s Monday. The third week in January. Martin Luther King Day. And a day I planned to do a bit of gardening. And gardening I did bright and early this morning.
Then the thought crossed my mind to see if I could find a few shubunkins.
So I’ve called the local fish stores (for nearly a year) in search for shubunkins. And finally, today, I nailed a place that had a tank of about 30 or so. I don’t know how to express my feelings other than sheer excitement and joy with an exclamation!
I had a little visit with the hubs via text and he said to go pick out some for the pond. At that point, I think it took me all of about 5 minutes to hit the road.
Here’s the little batch of 7 that I hand-picked. They were transferred to this little tub prior to them going into the bag.
Here’s a couple right after we got home. They (in the bag) floated in the pond for about 20 min to acclimate slowly to the temperature of the pond. Then I released them into their new home.
I spent the majority of the day watching these guys make friends with all the other fish. And they enjoyed the first meal in their new home.
Momma thinks the babies are doing just swimmingly.
