Daffodils and Strawberry Muffins

Daffodils and Strawberry Muffins!!
I've been struggling with the blues lately. I am not the kind of person that generally allows that kind of thing so, I have been trying to figure out a way to snap out of it. Oh yeah, sure, I could do what I used to do, I could go to Michaels and buy lots of new crafting items, that always worked. Except for the fact that I have no money right now.
So, what's a girl to do?

Well, here's what I did...

I found these absolutely stunning flowers at the grocery store (of all places) 20 stems for $3.00!!!! Even I can afford an absolutely amazing bouquet of sunny yellow daffodils that lasts more than a week for just $3.00.

O.K, that covers the sense of sight, now for smell and taste....

Well, I found some lovely strawberries on sale (at the same store) for just $1.50 a basket!! So, I'm going to try making some Strawberry muffins. I meant to do it yesterday but got busy at my boys school. Boy was my family disappointed when they came home to NO muffins. I have a few recipes in mind. I know that I am going to make Strawberry butter to go along with the lovely muffins I plan on making. I'll take pictures and post whichever recipe I use if they turn out good.

Oh yeah, and I won a fabulous giveaway from SweetPeaInk!! Yeah me!! The giveaway was to spread a little joy. So, some of my swap partners might be getting little bits of my prize in our swaps. Check out her fabulous blog when you get a chance.

I think my mood is changing already. With all of this loveliness how could it not?!

Hope you all have a fabulous week.

Sorry to hear you've been down lately. I get that way sometimes too - but those daffodils are beautiful! Those would cheer me up right away! And I'd love to know what strawberry butter is! It sounds wonderful! I just saw a recipe for strawberry chocolate cupcakes and those sound divine! Haven't tried them yet!

I love these lovely yellow flowers and think that these are the gifts of nature and gifting someone nature's gift is a pleasant idea.
