A Better Day

I'm in a much better mood today than yesterday. LOL! I'm sure Richard is happy about that. Oh well, I guess everyone has days like that. I slept in this morning and it felt great but wasted alot of my day. There has not been any school at all this week so far and probably will not be.

Today I did manage sewing the center part of the blocks for Bonnie's Mystery quilt. I don't have all of the 600 half square triangles finished yet so I will have to work on those maybe tomorrow. I have loved how everyone elses mystery quilts are turning out so that makes me that much more excited to get mine finished.

Oh and this morning I did cut up all of those pieces of scraps that I sorted the other day. I cut them into usable sizes and put them away. But I do have more sorting to do so there will be a bunch more scraps.

This evening for supper I fixed a huge pan of baked spaghetti and garlic toast. We had plenty so I had Richard to take out some to Mom and Chantal so they would not have to cook this evening. Then after supper Hunter was asking for something sweet.....so I made a batch of these...

"No Bake Cookies" We all love them and I'm sure most everyone in blogland has ate them. I can remember that mom used to make them for us all of the time when we were growing up. They are my favorite too. They are almost gone already!

Oh....and I am punishing Richard for calling me "CRANKY" yesterday...he is watching "Gone With the Wind" with me right now!!! LOL! My favorite movie and he hates it!!! LOL! That will teach him to call me CRANKY!

I love the way your mystery quilt is coming along. Wish I could motavate myself to get something made half as often as you! I am one person who has never had a no bake cookie - maybe because I don't like chocalate? I hope your mother's therapy is going well. I remember going thru the same thing 4 yrs ago when I had my shoulder joint replaced. That first day I thought I was doomed!! Now, I don't have any problems. 4 years in a row I have had to have joint replaced due to arthritis - 2 knees, 1 elbow and 1 shoulder!! Knowing how things were going to be after I would do it all again, so hopefully your mom will feel that way too!! Let her know, it will get better!!!

Poor Richard!! Ask him what his favorite part of GWTW is!! Make him pick one!! He won't ever call you cranky again! lol
Your mystery quilt is seriously, so pretty!! Once you get all moved in to the house you should consider hosting a mystery or quilt along!! You do such pretty work!
