October doings

We've had no internets and a broken camera, and this makes Lu very upset.

But we've been doing all the fun things that you do in Fall. We picked apples. It was just Lu and me, because picking apples is "boring" and "lame."

But they're also delicious.

Since our neighbors have an apple orchard, we got to load up for free. See how greedy we were? I even filled the back pocket of that stroller.

We made a friend on the way home, some apple beggar.

We also had a grape harvest. These are Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

Here are Joey an Tania, driving the ATV. They pick up full buckets from the pickers, dump the buckets into half-ton bins, and return the empty buckets to the pickers. Driving the ATV is "cool" and "awesome."

I totally caught this gal slacking on the job.

We also have been harvesting our vegetables, but our dumb tomatoes took forever to ripen.

Then we had a harvest party in the barn. The world's cutest cats were there.

I'm supposed to be Rosie the Riveter, but I look a lot like Dr. Evil and Mini Me when they went to prison.

Some other costumes. That's my mom in the blue wig.

Joey is the girl on the right.

We had a hobo fire can.

And danced the Two-Step.

And danced to Thriller.

We went on a hay ride at the pumpkin patch.

And that's October, the best month of the year. We still have Halloween. It's not over yet. Sniffle.
