I have been wanting some muffins for breakfast but can't really afford good bakery ones. So, I had picked up a box of Jiffy blueberry muffins on my last grocery trip. I made them Sunday morning. I think it took longer to get the oven heated than it did to bake them!

When they cooled a bit, I got them out. I ate three of them, cut in half and buttered. Not perfect, but not bad.

I washed the bedding and did the other Sunday morning chores.

I put some pants on over my shorts and went down to the Dairy Whip to take those pictures.

My Japanese maple looks stressed. I'm guessing it's lack of water. So, I put the hose end next to the tree trunk and turned the water on low. Those other flowers (I can never remember their name) are in bloom. When I went to take their picture, I found a tree growing next to them!

I need to start using more herbs! Both the sage and the basil are out of control!!!

I had a sandwich for lunch. I have a lot of hard salami and Italian bread to use up!

I cleaned out my linen closet and threw away a whole bunch of stuff I never had used.

I took the trash from the linen closet and the kitchen trash out to the container. Just as I got back inside, my daughter Melissa called. We talked for a while. Well, mostly she talked, giving me her helpful health tips, lol!

I went outside and trimmed the front Forsythia. It should look great next spring when it flowers.

I got out the line trimmer. I finished the south side of the driveway and got half of the north side done before my back gave out.

As I was finishing up, I heard thunder. I looked up and the sky to the north was almost black. So, I hurried to water the porch plants and then buttoned everything up. But I was disappointed again as it just sprinkled here.

I laid on the bed, hoping to take a nap. Unfortunately, I left the TV on and got involved in watching several shows.

I had a real Sunday supper planned. But, it was getting late and I wasn't all that hungry. So, I made a bowl of popcorn instead.

I watched TV until bedtime.


  1. So Sunday dinner consisted of muffins and popcorn....hmmm Those are Phlox aren't they?

  2. Yes, phlox! That's the name I couldn't remember. Thanks!!!
