Surprisingly good for a meatless dish.See this image largerEver had a recipe that took more than it gave? In the hour and a half that it took me to make these pumpkin muffins, I broke a glass bottle of cinnamon, sliced my forefinger cleaning up the glass, then cut the opposite thumb, got water in the pumpkin purée, and dropped the bag of flour in the the bowl full of wet ingredients. I'm cracking up over here. These pumpkin muffins better not be cursed! ;D On the bright side, I now have 20 cursed pumpkin muffins to last me through the next or two. :pSee this image largerFirst time planting carrots in the garden -- just harvested them and made pesto out of the carrot top greens.See this image largerPumpkin Watch 2017 continues!

I wrapped all twenty muffins up in foil after they had cooled and went to bed. I got up early this morning and half of them were gone. My husband apparently raided the stash on a late night snack binge while he played Xbox. He has NO idea how much fiber was in those. Lol!See this image largerI've been waiting since spring for these shasta daisies to bloom.

I'm sore and feeling accomplished. :D Now to put my feet up for a while..See this image largerGood morning, everyone. I got to watch the sun rise over the Dallas / Fort Worth area this morning. I'm here on a business trip. Got some running and weights in this morning, too. So glad I was able to get up early. As Rumi once said, "The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Do not go back to sleep."See this image largerTook my daughter to a Girl Scout event this past weekend at a local agricultural school to learn about pet care. Say hello to the painted turtle we saw. It's been years since I last volunteered. Turns out I love to be involved with scouting. I'm. It sure who has more fun -- my daughter or me.See this image largerSpent the morning at a marine animal rescue center with my Girl Scout and did some clean up along the Cape Cod Canal.See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerOur little tree has been decked out. I've increased my consistency in working out, despite a bad sinus infection. Did strength training at the Y on Monday night, yoga at home on Tuesday night, and Zumba tonight. Experiencing bouts of anger lately -- some of it over my job and some of it related to family (and their general lack of involvement). I need to do a better job of managing through this. Funnily enough, strength training has proven to be a good outlet when I'm feeling that way.See this image largerIt's 21 here in New England and actually feels like 7. I proactively put on my workout pants to take my daughter to kung fu. This way, I won't be able to talk myself out of going to Zumba later.See this image largerSee this image largerWalked nearly 60 miles these last seven days at Disney World. I absolutely love the Flower & Garden Festival at Epcot. 🌻🌷💐See this image largerWe went to to beach today up in Maine. This is our weekly tradition during the summer. The water is chilly (55F), but we still get in and splash around. I also steal away for about half an hour and take a brisk walk down the beach. Think I'll squeeze in some yoga before bed tonight, too, to round out the exercise. Have a good evening, everyone!See this image largerThe front garden is in bloom. The lilies I planted last fall are now massive. Love me some bulbs! Started out my morning with a 2-mile run at the local track, then took the family to the farmer's market. My latest obsession are garlic scapes. Has anyone else tried them? I LOVE to roast them up in the oven with some olive oil, salt and cracked black pepper. So tasty!See this image largerPosted a photo
