Don't we all say "that was the best cake" or "steak" or whatever and it is just a figure of speech?  Well I have actually made the Best Ever Blueberry Muffins.  I've tried making Blueberry Muffins several times with fresh blueberries, but I was always disappointed.  This time I have done it.  They are light, not too sweet, and lots of fresh sweet blueberries in every bite.  I can't decide whether to hoard the recipe or SELL it.  Unfortunately I could only sell it if I gave away samples and I don't know about giving away even bites of these muffins.  If I ever make them for you, you can feel truly loved.

It also feels good to have accomplished something when it is too hot to even fix a cold drink!!

Heat, Heat, Whine, Whine

I really dislike whiners but the heat this summer is turning me into one.  It seems to be the ruling force in my life these days.  Can I get by without running that errand, going to the grocery store?  Can I put off the haircut a few more days?  Will it EVER rain?  If it does I may dance in the rain!

I did have a moment of almost giggling this morning.  I had a message from a dear friend who said his life was amazing this year.  What a delightful thing to hear.  I think this calls for a visit to hear all the details.  How long has it been since you heard someone say "My life is awesome"?  Don't you wish we would all say that more often.  I think I may try it even if it only regards today and I have to stretch a little bit.  It would be worth it if it made someone else smile and consider the possibilities for their own life.  Let's all try it once and see how it makes you feel.  Maybe it will become a habit and spread smiles everywhere.  Just imagine!
