Welcome Olivia!!

Since we lost, Noon, our gerbil, hubby felt sorry for Midnight being left all alone, so we went and got another one. And here is a picture of Olivia!!!

She is such a cutie, and her and Midnight are getting along very well. I didn't think I would like gerbils, but I couldn't see those little babies being given away to just anyone, that's why I took them. But I really love them, they are the cutest little critters!! And they are not expensive to keep, when I change their bedding, I just get rid of the old and just put toilet paper in for new bedding, and they shred it up. And they are great recyclers, when you are done with a roll of paper towels, and if you put the cardboard roll in their cage, it will be chewed up in minutes!! And they love it!!!

Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins Recipe

Ok, this is an awesome recipe for Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins, and I can tell you it has taken me 2 days to get a pic of the muffins!! The first day, Wednesday, I made 44 muffins, and I need to stress this FOURTY FOUR muffins, and by the next day, Thursday, I had only 10!! So I made these last night, and immediately took a pic, because I knew that they wouldn't last tooo long!!! ok, so here's the pic... Oh, and just to let you know...since I took this pic, which was about 9 last night, half of the muffins are gone!! The recipe is below the pic!!

And here is the recipe

1/4 c oil
1 medium egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/2 c of flour
1/2 c old fashioned oats (rolled oats)
3/4 c blueberries

Mix oil, egg,milk, and sugar together until well blended. Mix in flour and oats, until well blended. Fold in blueberries gently. Pour in muffin tins, and bake for about 20 minutes at 400*, but before you put them in the oven, sprinkle a bit of white sugar over the top of each muffin, it is awesome!!
And when they come out of the oven, I would recommend that you let them cool before you eat them, but in my home, that didn't happen!!

What a weekend!!

This was a weekend of ups and downs....

Saturday we went to the Red Lion Street Fair and we had a ball!! My husband was supposed to be working, but he surprised me and left work early and came to walk around the fair with me!! I was so happy he did that!! But I think it had something to do with me calling him and telling him that there was pit beef there...LOL Here's a pic of the Fair, and as you can tell, we had beautiful weather for the fair...

And Sunday, was a sad day for us. We had been given two gerbils about a week and a half ago, because the people who had them could no longer take care of them. So we took them and one of them looked really sick and I didn't think the she was going to make it, and she didn't. She died yesterday, and the boys were upset. Coty took it really bad, and Elijah volunteered to bury her. So each of them grieved in their own way. Here's a picture of the two gerbils that we got, the grey and white one is Noon, the one in front (and she is the one who died), and the dark one is Midnight. The boys picked out the names, and I thought they were cute!!

Well, that was our weekend!! How was yours?

We are stitch-free!!

We had a day of running today, and one of the errands was getting Coty's stitches out!! And I cannot tell you how happy I am that they are finally don't get me wrong, I didn't mind taking care of Coty's stitches, I was just sick with worry that something bad would happen and they would get infected...and OH, that made me sick!! I can say this now, because it is over with...hehe

But we had alot of errands to run today and one of them was picking up my camera my dear, and loving hubby got for me, and as soon as I get the idea on how to work it I am going to post some pics!! I had so much to do today, my running started about 8 this morning and ended about 4:30 this afternoon. I could swear my butt print is embedded in the front seat of my car!! And I tried to do too much today, and I realized it now. I went grocery shopping about 9 or so this morning, and I came home and started to put the groceries away but had to leave, and I didn't finish putting my groceries away until about 5 this afternoon...*sigh*

So I am going to get off her and relax!! And spend time with my dear hubby!!!

I'm Back!!

They (the powers that be at found that my blog was "a potential spam blog". Now, as you read this, look around and see what you see on my blog, I don't see it as a spam blog, but I guess their electronic spam detector thought so, and blocked my blog. I didn't know that they had released it until I just went on today, I would have thought an apology was due, but I guess I am wrong. Ok, I am done...I got that off my let's move on...

As for Coty's is looking really good. I spent a long time this weekend cleaning it out, and trying to get the dried blood and build up of antibiotic off of it, and it looked really good. He is walking on it, and he doesn't need the crutches anymore. He said it feels like a bee sting, but the swelling is gone. I am taking him to the doctor's Friday to take out the stitches!! I have a note on the frig that he is getting his stitches out on Friday and underneath it he wrote "YAY!!", so he is ready!!

Bub and Coty start football practice next week, so I pray that Coty's foot is healed enough by then. But I think that since he is getting his stitches out on Friday and he plans to do alot of walking around this weekend, I am praying that he will be fine for Monday!!

Ok, that's all for me, for today!! Hope everyone has a blessed day!!!
