Caterpillar Crawl: November 2017

I got home so tired this (Wednesday) evening that I almost forgot Thursday is the last day of the month–which means Caterpillar Crawl day!

The only photo I have that wouldn’t be reusing something that’s been on the blog recently is this snapshot of my parents’ cat expressing some concern about my sister-in-law’s birthday present when I was home over Thanksgiving.

Maggie’s pretty old–the cat, not the sister-in-law–and starting to have some significant health problems, so it was nice to get to spend a little time with her last week. We’ve had her since I was in elementary school!

On a lighter note…I do have a new recipe coming to you soon. And I think you’re gonna like it. πŸ™‚

In the meantime, enjoy these yummy recipes and reads! Happy last day of November!

    Yes, Maggie does seem concerned about that gift. She’s so beautiful and sweet. It was good to see you. Have a good rest of the semester and I’ll see you at Christmas.

    To echo the others, that is one good looking cat. Perfect for CATerpillar Crawl. πŸ˜‰

    Loved Blissful Lyss’ post too!! I can get so caught up in judging my feelings then judging the judging and so forth. There’s a fine line between judging and observing. Definitely want to incorporate more of the latter in my life.
