I like Thankful Thursday

A few things I like!

Last week was our wedding anniversary. We went to the cinema to see Incredibles 2. I think there were about 10 people altogether watching it!

We enjoy kids films as much as anything.

The week before was my birthday as well. I have a clever phone now, so I have been busy trying to learn that. 📱

I haven't done anything too ambitious yet. But I did get the app for my favourite radio station.

As it is Thursday, I am currently at the Festival of Quilts. (I set this to post while I am there) I will find out today who the winner was in the Fine Arts Quilts Masters. (Nervous!)
 But I am very happy just to be shortlisted.
I love coming to the Festival of Quilts (Birmingham, UK) I catch up with a lot of friends I have made over the years.

I made up a pumpkin pie in my head in the early part of the week. Maple flavour!
I have been making some dietary changes in hopes they will help me not to continue to spiral down in my health. So, I made this with some of the 'good for me' ingredients the Thoughtful Man has brought home for me.

I already had the pie crust frozen, so I wanted to use that up. But I will just eat the pumpkiny bit, not the crust. I have written down what I did to make this so I can make it again! If I do, I will probably use a glass dish and bake it in a bain marie. Or something.

I'm curious what the ingredients were in that pie. How lucky you are to go to that quilt festival.

We went to see the incredibles 2 recently and I really enjoyed it. IT was a super fun romp!

Suzanne said...

We like the kid-family friendly movies too. Enjoy the Festival.

for some reason I never want to eat pumpkin pie crust. Maple in any form is so delish! I hope you have a huge ribbon by now! Congrats on being nominated, it's a big thing!!!

No ribbons. It is a prestigious thing to actually be chosen for this category. Juried in - 23 chosen from over 100 entries. Not no quilt police!
