I Like Thursday #377

Happy Thursday!  Hope you're having a good week!  Today should be a good day here because a little later this morning, I get to spring my mom from rehab and take her home to her apartment.  I think she's looking forward to that, and I really am!

I found a little hint of Spring in my garden the other day.  I love seeing the crocuses - they are so cheerful!

Another hint that Spring is on the way - baby chicks at Murdoch's.  They had all sizes, shapes, and varieties.  You could hear them cheeping from several aisles away!

I've been enjoying this book this week.  The "Thursday Murder Club" is a bunch of older folks who live in a retirement community in England, and they like to solve mysteries.  They worm their way in to the police investigation, and the detectives end up using the information that the seniors come up with.  It's a fun read!  Evidently it's the first in a series. 

It was a big thrill to read Cynthia's post last week at Quilting is More Fun than Housework and see my quilt in it!  I sent her the Split 9 Patch quilt that I finished in January for her Compassion Quilts charity.  

LeeAnna's question of the week is if we came home to a multi-course meal cooked by your husband, what would you like it to be?  And that made me laugh!  🤣  because it is never going to happen!!!  Mike told me when he retired that he would take over the after dinner dishes and clean up, but "please don't make me cook!"  How could I turn that offer down?  So, the best I can expect in terms of dinner from him is... takeout?!  

How about from the Asian restaurant nearby? 


Thanks for visiting on I Like Thursday hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color.

So happy to hear your mom is feeling better! She will be glad to be home.
We woke up to snow this morning…
I have read that book!
Have a great day!

What great news for your Mom! I think a little ice cream is in order - that's what Mom would have wanted. ;) I can't bear to walk into Tractor Supply during the spring, because it breaks my heart to see and hear those little chicks. Hubs assures me they are find, but I just want to gather them all up and take them home. That is so funny about Mike! Hey, takeout is fine, right? :D So nice to see that pretty quilt again.

that is a beautiful quilt that you gave to Cynthia's group. My Mike doesn't cook or clean up and never thinks about clean up

Yay for getting out of rehab! I love how loud baby chicks are. So cute! Thursday Murder Club is on my reading list! Love your 9patch quilt.

Happy homecoming for your mom! Yes, crocuses are a colorful spring welcome. Glad you're enjoying Thursday Murder Club. You'll enjoy the sequels, too.

Hi Diann! YES! Crocus time really means Spring. The Thursday Murcer Club looks like a good book. It seems like they based a TV series on that book - maybe I'm thinking of one that is pending. Your Split 9-Patch quilt looks so cheery - I know it will be well received. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

LOL, Hubster does a mighty nice steak grilling and brisket smoking, but inside I am the master of the kitchen. He is always willing to clean up, so it's a win-win for me.

The quilt turned out so pretty, sure to bring comfort.
