Saturday Nite Cravings and Bear Fur

Is anyone else in menopause having cravings?
This has been going on with me for several months. Poor sweetie, after working 12 hours he's stopping off at the store for fried chicken, baked beans and cole slaw. I just couldn't help it. We've both eaten supper,

but we're eating again. And we wonder why we're overweight (no we don't).
The boys and I have had a quiet, lazy day. There's something in the air, it's supposed to snow again. Yesterday was just a dusting, 2 inches. It made everything pretty again after the semi-meltdown.
I've been piecing patterns over cloth all day. Trying to decide which color I'm going to use for Priscilla's dress. Priscilla is the 16" bear that Mom is getting for her birthday tomorrow. Yes, you read that correctly. Her birthday is tomorrow and Priscilla and her wardrobe are still on the table. It's not all my fault. Yes, I ordered everything with enough time to spare. But the storm (first one) delayed the deliveries. When the fur got here, guess what? The piece wasn't big enough. I don't know how I blundered but I did. Now, the second order won't be here until the 19th. Last night on the phone, I had to break the news (she's actually getting used to me breaking news since she moved South) and she said, 'Oh, sweetheart, that's o.k. I'm not a child, I'll live'. Well, I'm hoping I really am off the hook and she means it. Sis and Dan are taking her out to dinner tomorrow. Dan's birthday is actually right after Mom's so they're doing a 2-fer.
Mr. Glen Oaks will be home soon, I hope, before the snow starts again. I need to finish up here so that I can greet him at the door. 
I hope you all have a peaceful, happy weekend.

Good morning Susan...
There is a layer of freshly fallen snow here this day...quiet and lovely really...although Springtime must be around the corner surely.
I shall look forward to meeting Miss Priscilla...I feel certain that she shall be splendid indeed!
Wishing you a cozy, bear-filled day!
Warm hugs,

I don't remember having any food cravings but since your hormones are changing it makes sense. Cole slaw sounds really good to me right now and I haven't even had breakfast.
Happy Sunday, hope you get that snow.

Sounds like a cozy afternoon! I liked to eat before menopause and after! We have had really odd weather this winter in Vt. Unusually warm and the bitter cold and windy and back again! Ventured out to a book altering class yesterday. Today we hibernated!

Hi Susan,
glad you are working on projects again. Cravings? Hah, have them all the time, thought I was past menopause, lol!
I have my bunny out now that Valentine's is over.

Yep, cravings here too. With me it's usually cold cereal around midnight for some reason and I usually hate cold cereals! Ahhh, ain't being a woman grand?! I am sure that Priscilla will be well worth the wait and your Mom will understand, Moms ALWAYS understand! Happy sewing and Happy Birthday to your Mom and Dan!

Oh, the cravings!!!! I don't have any now, but when I was pregnant I couldn't get enough salty foods. I eat cold cereal every night before bed. I hate being hungry before bed:) I hope you show some pictures of the sweet birthday bear. -Steph-

I Look Forward To Your Comments
