Sorry to be a no show yesterday. The day just kind of got away from me. There is still so much to do before this weekend. I need to do a better job of keeping on top of things. I still have 2 batches of peanut butter fudge to make. I also have lots of candles and room sprays to do. I am slowly getting things in some kind of order in the dungeon, although you wouldn't know it to look down there.

I worked on my Thimbleberries quilt again. I finished the February set of blocks. I am not quite as pleased with my 12 inch block. It was more challenging with points etc and bulky intersections. I ended up taking it apart and re-sewing it, but it is still a bit off of its measurement. I have so much to learn.

I developed a new fudge flavor - maple cream and maple walnut (only difference is the walnuts). The girls have never raved about my fudge before, but Anna asked me to please keep this one away from her. I can't believe that I like the maple better than the chocolate.

Word of the day:
Monday of the Second Week of Easter
Jn 3:1-8

There was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
He came to Jesus at night and said to him,
"Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God,
for no one can do these signs that you are doing
unless God is with him."
Jesus answered and said to him,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless one is born from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God."
Nicodemus said to him,
"How can a man once grown old be born again?
Surely he cannot reenter his mother's womb and be born again, can he?"
Jesus answered,
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless one is born of water and Spirit
he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.
What is born of flesh is flesh
and what is born of spirit is spirit.
Do not be amazed that I told you,
'You must be born from above.'
The wind blows where it wills,
and you can hear the sound it makes,
but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes;
so it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit."
