My October in Photos – iPod Edition.

*Tuesday was busier than I expected and I didn’t get to post, so that post has been moved to next Tuesday. (Because it is the start of a series for Tuesday.) However, here is the one scheduled for Wednesday!

Surprise #1 for this post, my uncle gave me an iPod for my birthday! Here are the photos I took with it during October – and a few from November because I can and it relates to surprise #2. ๐Ÿคฃ And I’m sure you will be flooded with more of surprise #2 in November in photos so I think it’s okay to share some of them now. Because I can’t really contain my excitement…

Cucumbers! They are now pickled.

Autumn leaf!

The same wildflower as Monday’s post – I wanted to see the comparison in how well the iPod captured the flower in comparison to my camera. This thing doesn’t do too bad with macros…

Really freaky looking cucumber.

Mushrooms!

…okay, I can’t take it any longer. The next surprise… I HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS SURPRISE OR I WILL BURST.

Meet Thaddeus “Jumping Jack” Braveheart – he is surprise #2! ๐Ÿ˜ A feral cat showed up under my dad’s shop porch and the kittens were so hungry. I felt bad and tried to feed them, but they were too scared. Except for this one.

The next day, the mother had moved them, and I haven’t seen the mother or the other kittens since. But this little fellow was hiding in some leftover drainage pipe that we’re storing at our storage barn. Abandoned! I thought about leaving him to see if the mom would come back, but I heard the coyotes and I was afraid the neighbor’s dogs might get out again…

Plus, he did this when outside. He wrapped around my leg, not wanting me to leave him. And he followed me everywhere. My heart melted…

The plan was to get him weaned and litter box trained so we could give him away, but…

I think I can speak for all everyone when I say that we fell in love with him. Besides being cute (LOOK AT THAT BLACK MUSTACHE ON HIS NOSE AAAHHHH), he is a handful, curious, gets into everything, and is very entertaining with his playful antics.

Unfortunately, he thinks that my hands and feet are also toys to be played with. We’re breaking him of this habit. We hope. ๐Ÿ˜…

He discovered chairs last week. This is him in the chair.

He is so lovely. Most of the time. ๐Ÿ˜† Sometimes he has more energy than he knows what to do with. I’ve seen him try to climb the walls. And try to eat his own tail.

Here he is in my sandals. ๐Ÿ˜

Sorry for the blur, but he was very active. ๐Ÿคฃ He has my turtle, Speedy. And my iPod cord…

A quick break from the kitten because I’m trying to post these in chronological order. ๐Ÿ˜‚ My mom and I grabbed a burger at McDonald’s, and she spotted this. The sign says, “DO NOT BLOCK FIRE EXIT.” Someone decided not to heed that warning, it seems… O_o

Praying girl on Sunbeam bread! I heard from a friend that this was a thing this time of year. Never noticed it before. But there she is – praying. It also had the caption, “Not by bread alone” I love Sunbeam even more now… ๐Ÿ’œ

Now, returning to Jack…

Jack trying to eat my stuffed dog. It’s a cat-eat-dog world out there, folks… ๐Ÿ˜‚

I don’t usually post photos of me, but here we are. We’re on my bed. I was playing with the filters and Jack came along and fell asleep there beside me. ๐Ÿคฃ

Jack trying to attack the people in the TV screen. ๐Ÿคฃ

In my lap again. Refreshing Spirit called him, “An early birthday present from Jesus.” Refreshing Spirit and T. R. helped name him. Thaddeus came from Refreshing Spirit and Braveheart came from T. R. ๐Ÿ™‚ His nickname is Jumping Jack because he has this weird thing where he jumps out of stuff like a Jack in the Box. And he jumps in general. It’s very amusing. ๐Ÿ˜†

Sprawled out on my electric throw. He really likes my throw. And my mom’s electric throw. And my dad’s electric throw…

HE IS SO CUTE. He almost blends in on my zebra print though.

And here is why I am 4K words behind in writing my NaNoWriMo novel… ๐Ÿคฃ

My October in Photos will be concluded next Tuesday! See you guys later! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  1. Thaddeus “Jumping Jack” Braveheart may well be the cutest kitten ever! I didn’t even notice the arachnid because I was so taken with Jack! I trust you’ll post pics of him often so we can watch him grow up. I can almost hear his little kitten purrs.

    • ๐Ÿ˜ป He is and Iโ€™m so happy to have him!

      Wow, Jack is powerful to make you not see an arachnid.

      Oh yes! TR has already suggested having โ€œCaturdayโ€. ๐Ÿ˜ธ That might become a thing starting next Saturday…

      He purrs rarely so when he does itโ€™s s treat! His personality is very strong already. Heโ€™s a very โ€œno touchโ€ type of cat which makes me sad. He likes laps and playing but heโ€™s very particular about when and how and where he is petted. ๐Ÿคช
