And in the morning, I'm making waffles!

It's always so nice to not be rushed on a Saturday morning. Since I didn't have to hustle everyone out the door for school I thought I'd make waffles for breakfast. Yummy, yummy. Hannah turned her nose up at them after finding out they weren't the Eggo's style of waffles but a whole wheat kind. I think they taste 10 times better and they are better for you until you pour syrup all over them. So while I enjoyed my yummy waffles and hot cup of coffee, Hannah had a cold bowl of Cheerios which she grumbled about. Not my problem. I made enough waffles for everyone.

I am hoping to make some progress on my fall wall hanging today. Here I am blogging while Seth naps instead. I did get the batting ready so now the backing needs to be pieced. I'll have to remind myself to add a sleeve to the back of this one since golly, it is a wall hanging after all. I used a new stitch on the machine to join the batting together. I know some people frown on that but if you do it right it isn't bulky or noticeable in the final product, or so I tell myself. Who wants to go all the way to the quilt store when you have scrap batting. It isn't like I was piecing 12 inch chunks of batting together either. Just one nice seam.

Well, Seth just woke up from the worlds shortest nap. Thank you Simon for being the loudest kid in the house at all times.... grrr. Maybe Seth will play nicely while I piece the back. I know it'd be to much to ask for him to let me baste it too.

Yeah, the relaxation is always short lived though. Something about kids and them having needs met.

"And in the morning, I'm making waffles!" is one of favorite movie quotes ever. Another one from that movie is:

You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious.

Oh, funny, I didn't get the Shrek reference until I read the other comments - I really should have though, that DVD has seen about a bazillion turns in this house.

I can identify with the waffle thing - my kids would much rather have frozen pancakes than my own. More for me, I say!

We went through a Shrek phase at our house too. I too have seen the movie a bazillion times!
