Terrarium

We live right on the border of a time zone.  In my opinion, we live on the wrong side of the time change.  Even though we still have over 2 months to go until the shortest day of the year, it is already dark at 6pm.  Also, our apartment is half-sunk into the ground–it is… Continue reading Terrarium
