A title eludes me

Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year, with all the leaves falling and it being so colourful outside. It kinda cool to walk through the woods and see all the different shades of yellow, red and green and then have this bright, fiery orange pop out at you. And it really is a let down to step on a crunchy looking leaf and have it turn out to not be crunchy at all, like biting into a nice
looking apple and its rotten on the inside lol

My tadpoles have not grown one bit in all the many weeks they have been in my possession. They have done nothing but swim around and help the catfish eat all the minnows. Seriously, how long does it take for them to sprout legs and start looking more like frogs and less like a blob with a tail? Its too bad my garter snake got loose, it would have had some nice plump baby frogs to chow on.

Josiah made lunch today, goose from Mike and some pig thingy from the Cotè's. He also had some cabbage fermenting to make some sauerkraut for like a week. It tasted good for the first few bites and then the high salt content became too much to handle. I don't think I have had so much to drink in one sitting and I am still thirsty. But the pig was good.


I made a bunch of pies for everyone to devour since tomorrow is Thanksgiving. While I was making the lemon meringue ones, I was joking to my mom that I was going to tell PJ that I had worked and sweated over the pie, just for him. She went and told my dad that and said that she was loosing me and that my heart was belonging to someone else now and my dad says, well good that's the way it should be, and he said he wasn't loosing anything but he was gaining. I think my parents, for all their quirkyness, are cool. I hope we have good weather tomorrow, I just don't relish the idea of sitting out in the cold and wet at a lake, especially since several of us are getting over colds. But I know I will have fun regardless of what the weather decides to do.

One definition for "quirky" found on the web is "strikingly unconventional." I'll take that as a compliment. :)
