NaNoPoblano Introduction (day before it begins…)
The other day I was thinking of NaNoWriMo, and suddenly remembered NaNoPoblano from last November. Took me a few minutes, but I found it! Team Cheerpeppers for National Blog Posting Month at https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/
Now, I already blog every day, but I am looking at this challenge for three things. First, to introduce some new photo-related weekly posts. Second, to start a new series, which shall continue beyond November, called “Welcome to James Bay!”. And third, to introduce a bit more writing into my posts. Oh, and in addition, I will also be attempting to participate in the 30 Days of Thankfulness (https://mcclendonvilla.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/30-days-of-thankfulness/). Why? Why not?? Basically I have a “plan” to see what happens this month as long as I post every day and try some new things!
So, a range of new things to try for November. Hopefully some of you will try the NaNoPoblano/National Blog Posting Month challenge too!!
Now, back to watching Hallowe’en!
52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 13
A challenge from That Girl that Dreams Awake (https://thegirlthatdreamsawake.wordpress.com/) – a 52-week challenge, and this week’s topic is Face (https://thegirlthatdreamsawake.wordpress.com/2016/10/31/52-weeks-photo-challenge-week-12-face/)
Now, what else would I show you for “Face”??

Yes, Hallowe’en at last! I can’t believe it, although now I can play Christmas music without feeling too much judgement. Which mean, yes, of course I have already been playing Christmas music!
Last evening mom and dad made dinner for my birthday – yes, another birthday feast! And a yummy one it was.
Nothing like a birthday Prime Rib roast with mashed potatoes and veggies!
And of course, gluten-free carrot cake with white chocolate frosting. Yeah – sounds better when you just leave it with “gluten-free carrot cake”!
Thanks mom and dad! Elliot wished he could be there too…
A Birthday dinner…

Last night, Kevin took me out for dinner for my birthday. No, yesterday was not my birthday – that is yet to come.
We went to our favourite restaurant, Olo and indulged in:
We walked to dinner, and on the way home, saw this – earlier we had seen this strange vehicle full of people drinking, pedaling madly and singing pirate songs. Sorry – no picture of that, only of the pirate-less version…
Elliot wanted me to make sure I posted at least one kitty picture today…
A few scenes from Friday

Well, technically from Friday after work.
Stopped by Niagara Grocery to get my veg box and a laugh!
This is NOT what it looks like. If we lived in Saskatchewan, it WOULD be what it looks like. Here, not so much.
Ah, kitties hanging…
And sleeping. Looks good to me!

It’s Friday, and I am working frantically to re-setup my laptop, having finally brought it home from the laptop doctor yesterday after work. So, while it’s furiously working away (and I am furiously working away at trying to remember everything that was on it before it got blown away and had Windows 10 completely reinstalled from scratch), here is a completely random picture for your enjoyment.

Yes. Here we are. Kitten Thursday. The last one of October. It’s been a bit of a rough month, but I think things are back on track and I am about ready to get back to regular life, get back on the running road to Marathon 2017, back to my kickboxing class, and back to my regular blogging activity.
In the meantime, enjoy Kitten Thursday!
Introducing Man’s Inhumanity to Man

I promised you a look at my first (and probably only) piece of thrown pottery. So, here again is the final, pre-glazed version
The printed version of the photo on my work wall
And now, the glazed 3D version
And here it is at work with my teeny tiny Buddha in it
And next to my other important piece at work, my More Cowbell cowbell (don’t ask)
Thanks for indulging me!
