Blueberry muffins

This morning the sky was bright clear blue, the reflection of a glacial lake.

However, the ice on the grass brought me in looking for something warm.

Hot blueberry muffins did the job nicely.

Blueberry muffins

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs
zest of a lemon and tsp of juice
4 - 5 tbs of milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 and 3/4 cups flour
1 generous cup of blueberries

1. Beat butter, sugar and eggs.
2. Add finely grated lemon zest, juice, milk, vanilla.
3. Mix in all remaining ingredients, gently folding blueberries in last.
4. Bake at 350/ 180 for 15 minutes'ish.

We spent our day planting. Our potatoes, onions, strawberries, tomatoes, and lettuce are sown.

Somehow each day begins and finishes so incredibly quickly.

It is even more alarming when hatchling no1 says, 'Where did the day go Mama?' I don't know sweetie, it zoomed right past me too.

Now, the hatchlings are are nestled in their beds, and I had better make a start on the inside. WOW! Spend a day outside and house looks like a tornado came through. A two year old kind of tornado. Thank goodness he is so cute.
