October LTP Part 2

I miss LTP! Anyone else have time to chat while things are being fixed in our new iVillage digs? ;)

Hubby's gaming night was cancelled (one of the guys is sick) so we're doing the usual TV evening routine, with Grimm right now. It smells really nice in the house at the moment because I made bread this evening. :D (In the machine since the oven was busy when I noticed our lactose-free bread supply was low. One of these days I'm going to give it a try on my own!) And there's also fresh applesauce in the fridge because I made crockpot applesauce today, which also made the house smell great!

I'm about 2/3 of the way through Emily's Quest. So good and very inspiring (since Emily's a writer and I'm working on it). I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow and work on some plotting of a new story, plus I have a snail-mail letter to finish...

Happy weekend, everyone!

There's a store closing here sometime (apparently in March, though I didn't hear that from a store employee so I'm not entirely sure). There was a sale on winter coats and snowpants. Saved $22 on a Spider-Man set for Tim. (I wasn't looking specifically for something with a character, but preferred that one over plain black.)

Another busy day on the horizon here.....some schooling, more laundry, more organizing, some cleaning and dinner along with a meeting at church this evening.  I am throwing a chicken in the crockpot so that I can make a few dinners out of it. I have a small turkey as well that I might cook in the toaster oven this weekend.  Lots going on!  ;)

Wow, to seeing snow already. It was almost 80 here yesterday. Woohooo for winter boots. Hope you find a great deal on a warm coat for Tim.

Ben had his first official day of preschool (not registered in the spring, but he joined the classroom to play and have a little social time). He loved it! :D

The snow came this morning, but it isn't much and will soon be washed away by rain. The boys loved it, though, and had an excuse to try their winter boots. Now to find Tim a really warm coat for winter as Ben gets his old one...

Sorry the applesauce came out the wrong color, but woohoo that it is still yummy.  

Thanks for the reminder Becca.  I have been praying over the entire situation, and believe it is right.  JJ did a great job yesterday.  :)

Wow, snowfall expected here tonight! Usually it won't stick around long this at this point, but I wonder if we'll have a white landscape by the middle of November - it's gotten chilly quickly, it seems.
