I had to work late tonight and then do the Speed Racer mad dash to Fed Ex and the post office with only about two minutes to spare. Seriously, I handed my packages off to the postman outside the post office as he was emptying out the mailbox for the last time this evening. After all that, I'm feeling terminally unmotivated to quilt or blog this evening, so I thought I'd just show you what I've been working on lately. I have one small applique piece to add and then I can pin this top and start quilting. Do you think I can muster up the enthusiasm and energy to do that tonight? NO! Apparently not! Do I know that Easter's going to be here in just a few days? Yes, as a matter of fact I do. Maybe the quilting fairies will come tonight while I slumber and take care of it for me. One can only hope!
If the stars align and magic occurs, this quilt will grace my Easter table. Somewhat ironically, it's doubtful any FOOD will actually grace my Easter table this year, because neither of our kids will be home and we'll be going over to my in-laws for an Easter lunch. My husband talked to his mom, and they agreed we'd bring dessert. My husband's talking about making cupcakes; I'm thinking Marie Callender's is right on the way and they make an awesome Kahlua Cream Pie. What's Easter, after all, without some grown-up chocolate? The Double Cream Lemon Meringue Pie doesn't sound too bad either.
Now that I think about it, I have a feeling that if I could just bury my face in a Kahlua Cream Pie right NOW, I might feel a little more enthusiastic this evening. But no, I'll wait until Sunday. Tonight I have two cats to battle for rights to the bathroom--a nice hot bath sounds awfully good!
