late already.

well i was going to start this blog yesterday with the beginning of NoBloPoMo, November Blog Posting Month, but clearly I am a day behind. figures.
Today is Sam's birthday and we are having a feast in his honor. I made bread last night, from a mix that we got from Upton when we moved out. (i know i never officially lived there but a. i kind of did, and b. we all did.) Anyway I assume it was Sam's mix because who else cooked bread at Upton? I got dill from the farmer's market so I made it Dill Beer Bread. I also made a salad with veggies from the farmer's market and other stuff I had. Chris is making potatoes and salmon as we speak. Hopefully others have either made food or are bringing their party hats.
I, of course, had to put a damper on the salmon dish by bitching about peppers. I just hate them. But I guess I should hush up about it. It is going to be delish tho and I am excited.
Clementine is sleeping on my couch, which is how I like it. I've really missed her this semester. Obviously I miss Chris too (and more) but it's funny how a pet grows on you.
George has been an excellent companion, and I feel really honored that I can be his caretaker now that Sam is gone, and Mike is away. I think we are helping each other thru the hard times. OK, mostly he sleeps and attacks ankles, but he helps me thru the hard times.

I promise I will write every day for the rest of November, and on the first of December, to make up for yesterday.

You better post e'ryday or I'm going to beat you down. I'm glad to hear how well you and George are enjoying each other (attacking ankles is a sign of happiness). I can't wait to see him at the end of this month.
