It was nice to come home to the smell of chicken stroganoff cooking in the crockpot ... so nice to have dinner ready within 15-20 minutes of when I got home. It's weather like this that makes the crockpot so handy. I need to go downstair, dig out my crockpot cookbooks, find some recipes and start using it more.
My first day back to work went well. Everyone welcomed me back with hugs ... and a cake. I was a little apprehensive because I'll be helping out with work I hadn't done in almost 5 years; I spent yesterday reviewing procedures and policies and feel confident that it will go well.
I don't imagine that I'll have any time this week to work on T#4's big girl quilt. I have the triangle pieces sewn together ... the next step will be sewing the star blocks together. Once I get back from my trip to the Gulf Coast and get settled into my new routine, I hope to be able to spend some time in the sewing room.
