Recent pics of our tarantula babies, plus a cockroach that had beautiful color.
First, we have Fluffernutter, a.k.a Fluffy (B.albopilosum)
This is Chocolate Chip, getting ready to pounce on their dinner. (G.pulchripes)
This is one of the roaches in our Dubia roach colony (Blaptica Dubia) We were just really digging the gorgeous colors on this lady.
So, for those of you who may be curious, here is my writing "process" for NaNoWriMo
STEP ONE: Procrastinate and put off writing for at least three hours. Possibly more. Sometimes this time is filled with something else that is creative and/or productive, and sometimes it is most definitely NOT
STEP TWO: Decide that it's really REALLY time to write, give myself some sort of problem to solve, by pulling up a random writing /plot twist/character generator at the Seventh Sanctum site, or pulling something out of one of the writing prompt bags that is attached to our local mascot, Ploticus Octavious.
STEP THREE: Hop over to twitter to follow along with the NaNoWriMo "word sprints"
STEP FOUR: Proceed to bang out 1654 words in 30 minutes.
STEP FIVE: Wonder why you keep doing that whole procrastination thing instead of just getting your word count in for the day as soon as you have a little spare time to write.
Here, have an absolutely 100% accurate and totally true to life selfie of what it looks like when I am writing. <.< >.>
...okay, it honestly usually looks more like this:
I was directing and performing in a Halloween show this year, (and Glenn built set/designed lights/ran the show/did a bunch o stuff to make us look good, so we didn't do much as a family this year, but have a spooky pic. :)
Elder Child made an awesome mask they wore to volunteer at Zoo Boo
and the youngun threw together a last minute costume with a Pringles can as the starting point
