today was a good day. i am happy when i get to the end of a day, and feel we got something accomplished. there used to be many a day where i'd wonder what did we do today? but today was not one of those days. today, we enjoyed the comforts of our home, made a mess in the kitchen and took a walk with maximus. michael and i also enjoyed some adult time at a bowling event later in the afternoon sponsored by his work, while harper got some qt with my second cousin and one of our regular sitters, sarah.
my friend, kellie, posted a link on her blog about how to make the best muffins ever. so i thought we'd give it a shot and see if the claim was true. harper helped me whip up 2 batches- apple & raisin and blueberry & white chocolate chip. harper enjoyed sampling the ingredients and taste testing, in addition to pouring and stirring. and when all was said and done, we sat on the kitchen floor and savored the warm gooey muffins straight out of the oven. and the verdict by the family was that they were absolutely delightful and will definitely be made again.
in the craziness of our typical days, it feels good to slow down and enjoy the beautiful little moments of our weekends.
