“Thanksgiving? That hasn’t happened in America yet…”

Nope, it hasn’t. But we live in Canada!

Today is Thanksgiving! I am thankful for tasty noms in the clover patch on a sunny day. I am also thankful to have a good home and people who love me.

It’s Mom Monday! Today mom tells us about tweaking my home and that some people on the internet are jerks.http://wafflesmom.wordpress.com/2014/10/13/the-always-tweaking-home/

Hello waffles! You are such a cutie(so is mango!!) and I would love to have a giant turtle wandering around my room, but I am still only 15 and am worried it's too early to become responsible for a tort that may outlive me even though I'm still so young. Do you or your mom have any suggestions on good land turtles that are good beginner pets that don't grow huge or live really long? Thanks waffles! <3

Hello! Us torties can live a long time but so can turtle friends. Even if you want to get a box turtle (which lives on land), they can live to be 50-100 years old! If you’re worried about having a shelled friend that lives so long at this point in your life, maybe you should wait for a bit and see if you still want one a few years around the road. Besides, you will have to bring your friend with you move to college or find someone to take care of him while you are gone. Maybe there is a wildlife or reptile centre near you that you could volunteer at. Then you can get on the job training on how to take care of a turtle or tort for when the day comes that you can get your own!

Having a nice, warm bath this morning. It actually got down below zero outside last night. Brrrrr! Good thing I was cuddled up tight in Fort Tort.

Woo hoo! Junk food day!

What’s fall without colourful leaves? They’re so pretty I could almost eat them but I found them to be a much better accessory.

The pumpkin patch brought out my inner farmer. How wonderful would it be to dig holes all day and then eat all the tasty noms you made? Maybe mom will get me a farm one day.

During my visit to the pumpkin patch, I learned that there are more tasty noms than just the pumpkin itself. I sampled the leaves that were nice and crisp although a little bit scratchy. I also learned that baby pumpkins are flowers! Of course I had to eat a baby pumpkin! So tender.

Today we went to the pumpkin patch! There were so many of them it was like a maze to walk through. Some of them were as big as friend Frankie too! I’m pretty sure I could have stomped for days and never find my way out.
