Things I’ve Been Learning Lately, vol. XVII


Hello!  Welcome to the weekend.  Welcome to Halloween!  Have you carved your pumpkin yet?  What are your plans?  Trick or treating?  Handing out candy?  Buying jumbo-sized bags of candy for yourself and eating them entirely too fast because it was a rough week?

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to stay in and watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and resist the urge to eat a bag of mini Reese’s cups that I’m saving for a cookie recipe.  And me resisting the urge to eat a bag of mini Reese’s cups is saying something, because dang, mini Reese’s cups are my favorite.

Pray for my will-power.

It’s been a week!  Here’s what it taught me.

  • Brussels sprouts are actually pretty good.
  • Scoutmob is one cool online shop. (I’ve known this for awhile but I think you should know, too.)
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail is just as hilarious if you haven’t seen it in awhile as it was the first time you ever saw it. If you haven’t seen it in a long time, go watch it and tell me I’m wrong.
  • Fall colors don’t last long once they’ve reached their peak. It makes me sad.
  • Adding goat cheese to anything is probably a good idea.

One thought on “Things I’ve Been Learning Lately, vol. XVII

  1. Happy Halloween & All Saints & All Souls weekend! I just love this saintly triduum of awesomeness 🙂 Girl, you must have crazy amazing willpower to set a goal to not eat those mini Reese’s cups! I would seriously scarf the whole thing down in an evening probably. I had never heard of scoutmob, but it looks really cool! I’ve got my eye on those cheese-making kits, and I’m totally in the mood for cheese now!

    I have not carved a pumpkin; for whatever reason, I never did that growing up, so it’s not something I ever think to plan on. A group of Catholic young adults in my area had a big ol’ carving party last night, but I’ve been pretty zonked out the whole week, so I didn’t go. As for Halloween…I’ll probably make “soul cakes” (but instead of using a legit soul cake recipe, I’ll probably make cinnamon rolls because I’m in the mood for those haha), watch a movie or show (the current options are Arsenic & Old Lace, Doctor Who, The Swan Princess, & a creepy cartoon show that unintentionally has great Catholic themes), and possibly join my husband in attending a gaming tournament! I think it’d also be cool to pray a St. Michael chaplet to celebrate, because that feels appropriate to me 🙂 All in all, whatever I wind up doing, it should be pretty fun and low-key relaxed! Your planned out evening sounds pretty grand as well!
