It's muffin time

pumpkin-cranberry muffin and a cup o' tea

Today was just one of those days. So I made some muffins-- Pumpkin-Cranberry Muffins. And then I made some tea. Mmmm. The muffins are really moist, tasty (pumpkin = good), and not too sweet. A little baking can go a long way in helping to relieve a grumpy spirit.

The boy has been having some sleep issues lately. Last night he didn't go to sleep until after midnight. Then he woke up at 5. Ugh. Sufficit to say, I'm rather tired today (much more so than usual). Fortunately, the boy went right to sleep at bedtime tonight (for once!), and Keith put together dinner. This gave me some time to relax with a little bit of stitching on block 1 of the Autumn House BOM:

Autumn House block 1 in progress
The house, chimneys, and roof were actually completed last night. Today I did the door and its little roof. As it is one of those days, I actually did the little roof twice. But the second time worked out alright. I took that as a sign that maybe sewing is not the best plan for this tired mama. The new plan: lay down, read a little, and fall asleep.


  1. Yummy! I have some pumpkin in the cupboard. May have to make these.

  2. It's hard trying to fit in time for yourself with tired/fussy kids. And usually that's when we need a little "me" time the most. Love the block though! :)

  3. Tea and muffins, would make a great breakfast. How nice of your hubby to make dinner. Your block is looking nice, now go get some sleep so you don't make any more mistakes.

  4. /cheer for wonderful husbands.
