12 Months of Photos - October - Better Late Than Never

Ok, so it took me forever to post October's pictures.  Part of this is because school has been HECTIC.  We have trimester exams on Monday and by Thursday, I'll have new students.  Also, I had a stomach bug for about a week.  My diet was saltine crackers.

Anyways, here are my photos.  I added some bonus ones to make up for my tardiness.

1. Pumpkins at Night 

2. Leaves

3. Bare Tree Branches

4. Apples

5. A Street Scene (the bumper sticker says "I Piss Excellence")

6. Orange 
(Right after this picture was taken, there was a lobster fight...no joke.)

7. Black

8a. Halloween
(Bret was a "pot head" and I was "static cling")

8b. Fall

9. Dressed-Up

10. Hot Beverage (Where's Waldo style...can you find it?)

Bonus Photos:

Our Apt. = Temporary Rainforest

So, it got cold the other night, so we brought the ferns inside...

 ...however, they took over the living room...
(Yes, Bret bought me flowers recently.)

A few minutes later, we decided to trim the ferns and found a
GIANT BEE chilling out in one of the ferns...you can
only imagine what happened next...

thawing/heating in the microwave.

8. Back to School - my classroom :)

9. Music - our friends play in a band called
Watson Street Loft

10. Favorite Shot - perfect representation of the 21st century...

Call Me Old-Fashioned...

Some photos of cool stuff taken for granted:

These 2 pictures are of the cash register at Schmuckers...
They said they will be replacing it with a new one soon, so I'm 
glad I took pictures...

This is a fountain at Franklin Park Mall...
oh, EXCUSE ME, Westfield...
whatever, I'm never calling it that...

Boxen - Packing

I know that some people who look at this blog might be saddened by these pictures...I just wanted to document the spacial reasoning of our packing...which saved us time and money on our move to Toledo:

 This is before it got "out of control"...I mainly took this picture
of the colors coming in from the sunset.

Kitchen boxen

When I moved everything into the living room, including
the kitchen table so I could mop the kitchen.
