Time to make the muffins

***I do not know why this old post from August of 2010 is showing up today.  I tried fixing the date back to the original post, but it keeps showing up? Maybe I needed a reminder to make pumpkin muffins.**

Oh yeah it is that time again ya'll
Pumpkin Muffin Time
if you missed it last year I am posting the recipe once again just for you... 
Because ya'll are awesome like that and deserve it.


Pumpkin Muffins
(I got this recipe from Patrice, but I am not sure where it originated)
2 cups Sugar
2 cups SR Flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Ground Cloves
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1 Cup Vegetable Oil
4 eggs
1 15 oz can packed pumpkin (not the pie filling)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all dry ingredients first, then add oil, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin.  Mix until blended (it is a very soupy type consistency).  Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

In Other News

Well sometimes, Ginger gets a little irritated when Matilda sits in her food bowl to drink water.
And Matilda thinks being an indoor kitty rocks

And I am still obsessed with taking photos of the sun setting

Well that is enough of my rambling. 
Have a great day everyone Wave.

Weekly Happenings

Weekly News:

I think I may start doing this every Friday since it seems during the school year I have a hard time blogging everyday.  Maybe I will even turn it into a meme if enough bloggers want to join in Confused
This one is going to be a 2 week update since I was a total slacker last week.
First off Bub started School
Yep my favorite time of the year….NOT
I am not like most Mom’s who wish summer would end so their kids can go back to school. 
I like sleeping in and wearing my p.j.’s til noon so this kinda cramps my laziness.  Me and Ginger need our beauty rest or we get rather cranky.
and this also starts volunteering up at the school again
and PFA which means a lot of phone time
On the phone
My backyard is being taken over by these birds
and dragonflies (no pics of them they are quick little boogers).  I guess we have lots of tasty bugs in our yard.  Not sure if that is a good thing or not yet.
Matilda is now a indoor cat.
Had a neighbor who was not cat friendly and thought it best just to have her strictly indoors then to start WWIII.
She is loving it and since she was already litter trained it’s been pretty easy peasy.
Ginger on the other hand is wondering why she keeps stealing her toys
But for the most part they play very well together
She loves to watch TV

And she loves her new kitty crate
But she still wonders I think why she can’t go outside.
I am trying to talk hubby into building her a big cat playhouse so she can still venture out in our backyard.
How cool would this be
Well that is pretty much all the excitement from my week.  Unless you would like to hear about all the fun vacuuming and laundry.
And just for fun here is a pic from a day trip I took with a friend..This place was heaven.

Just Thought I Would Share


When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.
I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.'


When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her . '
