She also got to enjoy a steady stream of turkey juice, unbeknownst to everyone, which was slowly leaking out of the aluminum roasting pan. When we discovered it, her entire head was covered with it and she was happily lapping it up when it hit the floor. Score!

We use melmac dishes every day, so we swapped out some of our dishes for some of these beauties. Most of the rest are destined for my Etsy shop, so if you're into plastica, stay tuned!

We have a hard time with breakfast...boring, not all that great for you, etc., etc., so I was nosing around the interwebs and found this. It's filling, eaten with some fruit...until it's not: about 3 hours after eating it, you are all of a sudden HUNGRY. Variety, spice, life.

My third (and final, for now) caterpillar has gone through metamorphosis and is now a lovely monarch butterfly flying free.
Look how fat it was! (And look how fat my finger looks!)
Here it has gone into the "J" shape before it begins to go into the chrysalis...
Although this is blurry, you can see the skin splitting open (then it falls off, ewww!).
And despite my getting up very early this morning in hopes of seeing it emerge, I woke up to find this:
my other two were both male).
No more butterfly-sitting for me for a while. I've put the milkweed plant outside now...I hope some female--maybe the beauty above?--will come by and lay some more eggs. But not for a while...I'm exhausted! And very very happy that three of the four caterpillars survived and flew away.

Is he in for stealing "hunny"?
(I made that collage in order to list him on Etsy--we're limited to 5 photos so I often make collages in order to show as much detail as possible.)
