Fall is Here Friday

38 degrees on my way to the office this morning.  Fall is definitely here now.  Considering we had 76 degrees over the weekend and a tornado watch on Monday — in November! — good grief.

I have a couple of pics of the fashionista’s pug.  One in her Halloween costume.

The pig costume was rather appropriate for the pug.  She has grown on me over the past few months.  I put the fashionista and the piglet in obedience classes, and that has helped.  We were told that she was 2, but I am thinking not.  Close, but not 2.  They also told us she was housebroken — close, but not.  Crating her during the day has helped with potty training, but she still has her moments.

Another Halloween costume to share — my Little Buddy with long flowing brown locks —

Aaaargh!

Today is office staff lunch — the first Friday of the month we go out to a local restaurant at the firm’s expense.  The person in charge has chosen Granite City — not one of my favorites.  But I am thinking I may try their blackened chicken linguine today and see if I like that.  It is between that and the peppercorn blue cheese burger.

I have got to get out this weekend and winterize my yard.  I have been putting it off and I absolutely must get that accomplished this weekend.  And I am thinking of making a batch of pumpkin bread and some sort of chicken and pasta casserole.  Just sounds appealing to me today.

I discovered a new (to me) band through the fashionista and her boyfriend that I have been listening to a lot.  An Icelandic group called Sigur Ros.  Good stuff.  Give them a listen.
