Jam Muffins

I was going to teach myself how to make pies this weekend, but these Jam Muffins from Back in the Day Bakery: Made With Love happened instead.  No regrets.

Here are five things on my mind this Sunday:

  1. We are still three weeks from the first day of summer and Nick and I talked about how excited we are for fall this morning.  All I can think about are apple orchards and cans of pumpkin.
  2. I've had the same pair of socks on my knitting needles since the end of January, and I'm focused on getting them done and off before I go to Tampa Tuesday so I can start something full of stockinette or garter.  Lord help me, a business trip and a flight (eep).
  3. Why is it that, no matter how many times I clean, I never get all the crumbs?  It's like they hide until I throw away the paper towel and then all hell breaks loose.
  4. At some point over the last year I became a serious, mega coffee drinker.  Today I've had three cups; yesterday I had coffee after lunch, like a totally normal person.  I went from never touching the stuff to buying a subscription to Counter Culture.  Adulthood.
  5. My living room needs to be furnished ASAP.  Everyday I see it and realize just how bad it is, and everyday I ignore it.  I'm making it a goal to at least buy furniture this summer.  That's not too hard, right?

In other news, I finished my Heather Ross Modern Building Blocks quilt around midnight last Saturday.  I thought about taking pictures but I think I'd rather wait until it's 100% done--bound and all--to reveal it.  I'm so excited to have it quilted.  I ordered fabric Friday night and will probably drop it off next weekend.  Hang tight!
