Happy Hallowe'en!

Pk says thanks for the positive comments.  He enjoyed writing the guest post.  I enjoyed sharing his thoughts.  It's funny to go to a yarn store with him and have him say, "that yarn will make a good pair of socks for me".  I keep my eye out for manly colors and patterns for him since he isn't a fan of brightly colored socks.

We have no big plans for today.  I'll do the laundry and cook a large pot of chili.  My brother called and asked if we wanted to come for dinner like we always do.  Since my girls were little, we've gotten together and had trick or treating and a "candy swap" and something hot and delicious for dinner.  My kids have all outgrown trick or treating and have their own plans but my brother's kids are young and the holiday is still fun for them.  So, I put on my jack o'lantern shirt and I'll make some chili and Pk and I will go and swap some of the candy we don't particularly like for some things they don't like.  I'm going to try the Boston Brown Bread recipe now that I've saved up enough cans to bake it in.  If it works, I'll share it next week.  I remember it as being really delicious.

Other than that, I'm having a peaceful weekend.  Tomorrow we'll have cake for my birthday (it's really Wednesday) and maybe Em will come (there are a lot of things going on this weekend and traffic will be horrendous).  Kate will be at the Renaissance Faire but will maybe be home for dinner.  Pk will cook and I'll sit around and let him take care of me.  Not a bad way to spend a day.

  It's the end of DST here and we gain an hour tonight.  It's also the end of Blogtoberfest.  I'll admit, I'm glad.  It was harder this year to post every day.  I admire and am in awe of those people who find things to fill a post every day all year long.  I don't know how they do it. 

Whatever your plans are, I hope the weekend's a good one.

Looking forward to seeing the bread sounds interesting!

As for blogtoberfest, I am with you! I've enjoyed it but my word the pressure!!!

Can't say that I'm a fan of brown bread even though it is a staple around here and something I was fed on a regular basis in my youth. But it is fun to make! Who doesn't love baking things in cans?

Enjoy Halloween and thanks for the DST reminder. I'd have forgotten all about it!

I've enjoyed your Blogtoberfest and thank you for making the effort. I have trouble posting more than once a week!

Have a great weekend.

I have enjoyed your daily posts (even though I haven't managed to read them on a daily basis all the time), and enjoy your halloween!

I somehow made breakfast plans for 8 am tomorrow morning. Me, the night owl who struggled to get up at 8:30 am today (Saturday) to get to work by 10. Even with the "fall back," I may be in big trouble. Congrats on making it through Blogtober!

It was hard! But I made it and so did you. :)

Congratulations for making it through! I'm with you though, I really don't think I could do it for a whole year! There'd be a lot of filler posts I think!

Your Halloween plans sound good - I'm intrigued by this bread recipe, so hope it works out so we can see pics of it next week.

Sounds like a very nice Halloween - hope you had a fun time!

Yeah can you imagine 365ish posts? YIkes! Maybe if I was getting paid. But then it wouldn't be fun would it? Ha ha!

Way to go hitting all the days!
