Slice of Life: Day 41.

I can't help it, he's just so photogenic.

I think I lose a little bit of his love every time I take a picture, though.

Slice of Life: Day 40.

I made the lentils again on Sunday, because they were so delicious to eat all last week.  I get on food kicks, and eat the same thing for a few weeks until I get sick of it.  Right now, it's lentils.

This batch turned out way way way better.  I give most of the credit to this nifty broth I found.  I'm glad someone else did all the work for me to make it taste good.

Slice of Life: Day 39.

There is a kitty here!  Sadly not my kitty, but mine for awhile.

He is the most affectionate cat I have ever been around.  In this picture he just looks like "please get out of my face" though.

I would love to trade places with a cat for a day.

Slice of Life: Day 38.

There are Bobs.  They are Skechers' response to Toms.

I'm guessing it didn't go over so well considering I can't find these on their website, or any information about them at all really.

I just have two questions:

To the people at Toms: How you do feel about these, knowing that they're still giving another pair to a needy child?  Do you still dislike them for jumping on your bandwagon, even if they're helping more kids?

To the people at Skechers: Really?  Bobs?  Could you not be more obvious?

Slice of Life: Day 37.

What is this?  This is butterbeer.  Homemade, hot butterbeer.  Here is the recipe, we mostly followed it and it was delicious.  (We might have added some amaretto...)

Beware: super rich, and you're going to want to make it again.  And again.  So warm and cozy.

Slice of Life: Day 36.

Yes, I was actually required to check this out from the library.

I love the title and the flowy script.

It was published in 1995, so it's not that old, but I picture this in a science laboratory at an all girls college in the 1950's.

Slice of life: day 35.

I didn't make this cake, my neighbors did.

They are super super nice and made cake because they're nice.

I love having nice neighbors.

This totally made my day.

Slice of life: day 34.

I know the date says I took this picture today.  And I did.  But this picture is going to count for yesterday, I was just a slacker yesterday.

Yesterday I made Indian lentils!  They turned out quite delicious, and it was easy.  It was only painful because they took foreverrrr to cook and smelled delicious.  I might have taste-tested too many times before they were done, and maybe not cooked them quite long enough.

Here is the recipe!

Slice of life: day 33.

I went to the Chalk Festival with my parents on Halloween.  The things people can do with chalk amaze me.

This was not one of the most mind-blowing drawings, but it's a super cute way of combining Sarasota and Halloween.

Slice of life: day 32.

I'm not very good at sewing, and I'm not very creative.

I do love thrift stores and I can sew buttons though.

$16 and about 20 minutes of sewing later, and I have a cute new wool coat!

Slice of life: day 31.

Halloween costume!  It wasn't actually on Halloween, but that's okay.  "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!!!"

Slice of life: day 30.

I love Halloween.  It means fall is here and the weather is going to be not unbearably hot for a few months.

It also means PUMPKINS!

I love pumpkin everything.

I particularly love carving pumpkins.  Too bad I am not creative and artistically inclined.  This is the best I could do.
