This n That on Thursday
Winter has returned here … the temperatures started to drop yesterday as the wind picked up. And we saw a very light dusting of snow when we got up this morning. And other than a bit of a respite tomorrow, it looks like winter’s going to be sticking around for a while.
At least we have some snow in the forecast, although it doesn’t look like it’ll amount to much.
With the temperatures dropping yesterday, I decided to make some White Chili. DH was out running errands, so I asked him to pick up a can of diced green chiles. As I was opening the can, I looked a little more closely at the label and noticed that he brought home a can of this instead of this
Ooops! I’d already opened the can and had started the chili, so I went with it (and skipped the cayenne pepper). It was spicy but good … DH has a pretty low tolerance for heat, so I worried whether he’d be able to tolerate it, but he had a second bowl …
I was able to get in some time with my needle and thread yesterday … I’m almost done quilting the 16th block of T#3’s quilt. I’ve got all the center blocks quilted … just the outer 2 blocks all the way around the quilt are left to be quilted. When I saw that big section of blocks quilted, I was sure that I was on the downhill slope of quilting … until I remembered that there are 63 blocks in this quilt … which means that I still have 48 blocks to quilt. Good thing I enjoy the hand quilting, eh?
After a few weeks of good, sound sleep, insomnia has reared its ugly head again. This time, instead of getting up at 2:30 in the morning, I’m now falling asleep at about that time … and while I’m technically sleeping in (6:30 instead of my usual 4:30), I don’t do too well with just 4-5 hours of sleep.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
