Made an especially nice looking pan of enchiladas tonight. Also new oven covers to be seen to the left.

On the subject of food, we celebrated Dad's birthday a week ago with a chocolate cake. I went up to the store that morning, they had one chocolate cake in the case. I was quite impressed with the roses:

Nine days of Nano so far. Word count: 13,667.

This year I'm taking a turn at Steampunk style adventure. With some ecology thrown in. And magic.

This is my sixth year of participating in Nano. Reached 50k in 30 days in the first, second, and third years, participated but washed out in the fourth and fifth. This year I'm determined.  I want that badge.

If you're on the Nano bandwagon, too, good luck with your novel!

So much leftover Halloween candy here, we've been eating it for two days! It was a fun holiday, even though we didn't get our papier mache project finished; we were well-stocked with chocolate and I guess that and a working porch light are all you really need!

Made some banana bread in my green Pyrex loaf pan:

Kazoo the betta is doing fine. He's one of those fish who gets really tame, every morning he comes to the side of the bowl and flares his fins, and when I feed him he waits for me to blow the food across the top of the water so he can chase it. Either he enjoys chasing it, or he's just nearsighted, ha.

The TV station stopped airing The Doodlebops here and Saturday mornings are just not the same! I was so hoping they'd air Season 1 this time around - but at least we've still got DVDs.

It's Nov 2nd - and we wish Lisa J. Lennox (Dee Dee Doodle!) a Happy Birthday!
