It was strange, because I felt like lately I have been blogging a bit about nothing, just life and little things. Today I went about the usual routine, laundry, grocery shopping, dance class for Em, etc. And everything was as per normal. Except for a few minutes ago when I sat down at this here computer to do today's blog post. Weirdly I had a huge number of hits on the blog. Maybe not huge for some people, but for me an inordinate amount.
I am not complaining mind. I just could not understand why. A quick look showed me that most of them came from Facebook. Further investigation turned up that those lovely people at Aurifil had picked up on my use of an empty Aurifil spool. Well, thank you very much. That put a smile on my face, not that I was grumpy before or anything.
And to expand on the use of that empty Aurifil spool, Quiltalicious sent me an email telling me she puts an old CD on the spool before winding on her binding to keep it slipping off the bottom. I knew I couldn't be the first person doing this spool thing and how fabulous that people have ideas to make it work even better. I am sure that those children's music CDs I had to listen to time and again in the car when the girls were tiny can finally have a purpose other than drive me to the brink of insanity!
Other reasons to smile today - I am trying out Vanessa's recipe that she posted the other day. Seriously, her photos will have you salivating immediately. Several of us neighbours in the middle of England are getting together for a BBQ tonight and this will be my dessert contribution. I halved the recipe and made 24 cookies. It is taking every ounce of my self-control to not eat one of them before we go next door later on.
Chicken wings are pre-cooked ready for the grill. A salad is made. The crisps (potato chips) are bought. Beer is chilling. I hope you all have a good night too.
