Life With a Tail... sure better than life without one! There are a few downsides to having a tail, though.

1) Kids everyone think you are an automatic petting zoo.

2) Sometimes you forget you have a tail and you close it in the car door...doesn't hurt, just looks pretty funny from the outside of the car.

Good things?

You have a great excuse to do anything you want to do! I've had a brighter feeling about life for the last few days as a monkey...just feel like a kid! Monkey'in around!

ps: just got a Trick-or-Treater at the door...1 year old...dressed up as a strawberry...cutest things I've ever seen!

Fall means all things pumpkin! Woohoo!! Here is a shot from my morning...
My newest tradition is to buy a pumpkin candle around Halloween time. I bought it last night and you can see it here...
Do you love it? I love it! I got it at Ross!
Also note the massive basil plant growing the background. Basil is a HEARTY plant! Grow on, basil!

Saved these potatoes from extinction! We now have frozen hash browns. I found out, however, that you have to blanch potatoes before freezing them or they turn brown. Oops!

Snap shots from my domestic life...

Domestication: to accustom to household life or affairs

I've never considered myself to be the domestic type...yes, I enjoy cleaning, but more for fear of clutter and disease than the joy of a catalog-looking home. However, after looking up the definition of "domestication", I now realize that I am, actually, quite domestic!

Take, for example, the picture above. The household life (legs up on the couch) is pictured behind the affairs (french-pressed coffee and cream). As per the definition, I believe this to be domestic.
