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!

I actually did feel a bit strange writing out the SOAP as well because my writing (actually, printing since my writing is awful and my printing flows together a little as it is!) tends to be just for to-do lists and short notes. I haven't been doing as many snail-mail letters this year, but I do have a great-aunt who got a letter a month from me last year. She's usually why I think of writing letters, 'cause she's in a home and doesn't use computers.

We had Chinese a couple weekends ago, yum yum! Last night we had stuffed peppers for supper, soooo good! Ben needed a little coaxing to try his portion, but once Hubby helped him cut it up and left the knife for him, the little guy was happy and ate it all up!

I'm hoping they'll start some sort of carnival or alternative to trick-or-treating in our area. I know there's something in the city, but in our village itself, they just give out hot chocolate at the fire hall. Walking door to door is still encouraged. While I like to pass down traditions, this is one I'd give up for safety! (Meanwhile, candy is already purchased for giving out at our house since Hubby likes to do that. I bought an extra box of fruit gummies to swap out the chocolate that Tim receives, so he doesn't ingest much lactose.)

Not sure what the plans are today with a forecast of rain and possibly snow! Maybe reading and writing for me, a puzzle done with the boys and a video game for Hubby! :)

Hi Becca,

You still write snail mail letters? WOW!!! When I am writing my SOAP our, I feel very strange actually writing with a pen! My penmenship is soooo messy now.

Sounds like you are having a nice evening.SIL brought home Chinese. It is so good, especially since I've been eating really healthy all week! I went to Zumba and then took the 2 younger kids to a Halloween carnival at my niece and nephew's school They have gone several years in a row, and love it. I even avoided the treats, amazing!!
