Quarantine Diaries Day 11 & 12
Yesterday I woke from my beauty nap and was in the most wonderful SUN puddle! YAY SUN! I stomped to go investigate my outdoor kingdom. What I found there can only be classified as a quarantine miracle! Greens sprouting from the ground! I could hardly contain my joy but I put on my inspector tort hat (its there you just can’t see it) cause I had work to do.
I’ve been working hard, taste tasting every leaf that has sprouted, in order to ensure its quality. So far all leaves have received my approval. It’s a tough job but some tort has to do it.
It’s tortsmas and santa was here! My belly is full of holiday cheer!
wishing you all the happiest of holidays! May your shellebration be long and your naps even longer. 😍😍🐢🐢🎉🎊🎉
Happy Nomsgiving (Or #thanksgiving as you humans call it) to all our human and shell friends celebrating today!! We are thankful for all of you and hope your day was full of noms, naps, and sleepy snuggles!!
They are great, healthy, treats for tortoises. These are spineless and your hands will be thankful for that, trust me. If your tort/torts don’t nom them all immediately you can also plant a pad or two and grow more cactus for later.
Ellos to all of my followers
And a grand
♡♡♡♡Happy World Wide Turtle day♡♡♡♡♡♡
I hope yall give all my turtle and tortoise friends some yummie treats and give them much needed love on such a wonderful holiday
Ontop of some good romping around time in or outside today. I sure am going to have a great day
Happy #WorldTurtleDay Freddy!
Zoya is having a pretty great day too. She got a BIG surprise!
No better way to #shellebrate than fresh noms!
A varied diet is so important to tortoise health. It’s not that easy to do in the winter, here in MA. So I braved the #Somerville Market Basket to get dandelion greens. It was tough but I got a good reward #happytort #NOMface
Looks like Zoya did a little too much partying last night. I’d tell her she’s grounded but I’ll let her nap first.
Here’s hoping 2017 brings you naps, noms, and all the snuggles!
