Thoughts and Quotes About Rainy Mornings, Oatmeal Muffins and Dads

It's another rainy morning. Actually, the rain began somewhere around four in the morning I think and it hasn't let up and it's nearly ten a.m. ! The rain is supposed to continue all day today and into tomorrow as well. I'm not sure how that makes me feel. Part of me thinks of rainy days as depressing, but then already I have accomplished so much. I have a muffin mix already to add the liquid ingredients and bake... and I also have a baking powder biscuit mix measured out. Yes, I do everything in two stages.

The longest part is the prep so I like to get that out of the way. On any given day I have at least four different muffin mixes dated and prepared and waiting in the baking cupboard to go whenever someone fancies muffins. With our schedule... we have to have them ready to go. Today it's oatmeal muffins and I might have to add an egg and a little milk. Gee, I hope that I have an egg. Must check so I can email G (dh) to tell him to bring me some home if need be.

Anyway, that's my ramblings for a rainy morning. Hope you have a good one. And in closing I will leave you a quote to enjoy ;)


"I like to fish this lake during sustained dry periods. When it gets rainy, the lake turns into chocolate. "
Jeff Rowland

I think that I like this one and every time it rains, I will think of all those lakes that turn into chocolate! Love it lol!! Now the fishing part... not much of a fisherman here, but I do remember collecting worms with my dad so that we could go fishing. When you are six, you don't realize that worms are disgusting lol... that came later. When you are six and you are doing things with your dad... it's just plain fun!
