My husband's odd work schedule completely screws up my perception of what day it is. He just had two days off, so I woke up today quite confident that I was going to have a great Monday morning, full of patience for my children and getting all kinds of stuff checked off my to-do list. In fact, I was so enthusiastic about it that I actually got up around 5:00 when Rog was getting ready for work and started some hand quilting on a pillow...
While I was stitching away, enjoying the quiet that only comes when kids are sleeping, I started reading a few blogs and after about the third WIP Wednesday post did it sink in that today was in fact not Monday. I'm not going to lie, my enthusiasm waned just a little. If it was already Wednesday I really didn't need to start my week off with a bang. And yes, that is a Sparkle Punch pillow you see. I decided to scale back my efforts a bit in light of the rapidly approaching birth of child #4...and a lack of enthusiasm for making this into a full-blown quilt.
I did spend some time in the kitchen getting a few things made to stock the freezer.
Carson has been requesting pumpkin muffins lately, so I made a double batch of those. Actually, they are more like half pumpkin and half butternut squash, but he didn't care. As long as he gets to stir and sample the goods he's happy.
Then I decided that since the oven was already hot I might as well go ahead and make some bread, so I tried a new recipe for English Muffin Bread and may have underestimated how warm it was in my kitchen. That dough got crazy, y'all!
I don't think I left it to rise for much more than 30 minutes, while the kids and I folded and put away laundry, but I got quite the little surprise when I returned! Nevertheless, I have 3 loaves for the freezer and one for us to eat today.
And have you noticed the Instagram photos? I joined the high-tech age a few days ago and am trying to figure out the whole Instagram game. I don't really get it yet, but my plans for the afternoon involve a couch, a glass of something cold to drink, and some QT with my new phone.
How many of you are on Instagram? I need to start finding my friends so I can get into it a little more. I'm hoosiertoni on there, so look me up!
