2 ingredient muffin

I found this recipe on a delpi forum board the other day and it did not have a name on it so I cannot give credit where it is due. But someone did say it was a Weight Watcher recipe. So maybe you have already tried it. If not you might want to!

I made them the other night and they are delish!! The  only thing you use is a box of spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. Thats it. No egg, No water, No nothing!!! Just the cake mix and the pumpkin. I used the small can of pumpkin that is the size of a can of veggies.  Not the big one like a can of peaches.

Now as you can see I added some oatmeal and brown sugar with a little butter for a topping but you could leave this off. You could also add nuts or raisins or dried cranberries to the mix.

I just thought I would share this recipe. It is one of those that is so easy you could make it anytime you wanted to have something sweet around.

FleaMarket Finds!!!

  It was cool and brisk this morning. The perfect time to make a trip to the fleamarket. As I arrived I saw some of the usual vendors and a few new faces. I knew from experience to start off with the new folks first.

This gentleman pulled in with a 14 foot flatbed trailer in tow behind his pickup truck. All the contents of the trailer were covered well with a huge tarp. As he and his wife were removing the tarp I was standing back watching, with a few other folks that had gathered around. As the tarp came off he looked up at us all and said, "1-2-3 GO!!! And that was all it took. You might say we were off to the races. Hehehe!!!

I thought I might share what I found today. Some of it I will keep and some will go to an antique booth I have. I hope you enjoy!!

This is an over view of the whole days gatherings!!

Now here is a closer shot of some of the items.

You can see starting on the left a minnow bucket with a veggie slicer on top of it. A rubber mallet, a box of 4 casters for a bed frame and 2 pulley wheels are in front of the wash tub.

 I have another photo from a different view!!

Here you see an old framed print of the "old mill" and a bait box sitting in front of an old metal kitchen stool

One more pic and that will be the whole bunch.

This shows the top part of the stool, a pack of plain white envelopes a tin travel soap box and a measuring cup for the hubby to use in the garage.

Now I had a great time today and found some neat stuff. But the bad part is that one of the regular vendors came over as I was leaving and told me he was going this evening to buy out an estate and would have it all there in the morning at 7am.  So you know where I will be. If I can go get some sleep. There may be more pics tomorrow!!!

I am in Treasury!!

Just a quick little post here to let you know I am in a treasury. I sell on ETSY and a couple of my items made a treasury today so I thought you might like to take a peek. Lots of talent there besides me as well.

Autumn Weather is coming...

Waking up the past few morings with a nip in the air reminds me that autumn is coming. We have had such a hot and humid summer that being able to use words like warm, cool or breezy is a wonderful feeling.

Fall makes me think of pumpkins and leaves changing colors and then falling to the ground. I am blessed to live in a beautiful state that allows me to see all the changing of the colors for fall. I thought I would share a few of the photos that I had found from fall of last year.

                                                                                                This is a pic of a beautiful place at Blackwater Falls Stae Park at Davis WV.
The leaves are just starting to change in this photo and it lifts my spirit to think of all the different color changes the trees will go through before the fall.

 Fishing in this stream was a wonderful and relaxing afternoon.

The colors of the leaves, the smell of fall, the sights that we see. These all bring a warm feeling to my heart after a long and hot summer. How about you?

Woke up a year older!!

Thats right today is my birthday. And you know what, I may be getting older but I would not go back for the world. I mean maybe if I could take the knowledge with me, but not just go back to be younger.

I enjoy all that life has to give and when I was younger and my children were small I was so busy raising a family and keeping a home intact that I missed so many of the simple things in life. And in doing that probably missed giving my children some memories along the way.

So if you are a (youngin') and reading this, stop and enjoy those simple little things that life has to offer and share them with your family as well. Life can get so busy sometimes and that is when we miss out on the "best stuff".

Starting out each day....

I try and start out each day with a few minutes of quiet time. Time for just me and Lord to be quiet and listen to each other. I know he always listens to me but I have to admit that sometimes I have to remind myself to listen to him.

Spending time reading and letting him reveal things to me is the best way for me to get my day off to a good start. Some mornings I have more time than others. But I always have some time and I give it to him.

How do you start your day? What gives you that little boost in the mornings? You know that (act) that sets the pace for the rest of the day?
