So, it's not so much that I'm REALLY boring--it's just that I've been too busy and lazy to update here. So here, for your viewing pleasure, is an amalgamation of my October:

1. We have the cutest cat ever.2. Mark got a haircut--from me--in our bathroom!
3. The roof leaked. Mega-big-time. With steady streams of water from 2:00 in the morning until 4:30 in the morning. It was not good.
4. We named our Jack-o-Lantern "Maxwell" this year. He was spooky. But he was moldy and rotten within 3 days of being carved so we had to throw him away before Halloween.
5. These mushrooms were delicious.
6. Our cat does not like to be held. She does not like it one bit.7. I made apple strudel. It was marvelous and it turned out beautifully. It really wasn't as much of a pain in the ass as I was expecting. The only real problem was that the bottom crust got soggy within a week of having made the strudel. I'll have to figure out a better way to store it next time.

And last, but not least, Fidget likes to play fetch. With a straw. Her favorite toy ever.

That's quite an epic blog post! especially that part with the cat fetching the straw. What a cat! And the strudel was delicious.

I hear grumblings of a big candy purchase...when do i get to read about that?
