Hi guys and gals,
probably should have put it:
Hi gals and guys, more gals than guys, LOL


Same Showers Different Day, LOL
and you thougt I would be saying the OTHER meaning!

I was excited to go for a walk this morning but that has been temporarily postponed,
due to lack of interest,
due to MORE RAIN

I think I'm gonna give up walking and get out my swim fins and take up swimming instead, LOL

CARTOONB was nice enough to give me a SP goodie, a SWIM TUBE, and I think it will help me swim my laps instead of walking my laps.

I over did it yesterday, did way too many steps. I was working in our basement and making room to move our office down there from a bedroom upstairs. The office space will increase greatly, and much needed I might add.
Anyway, between the stairs, up and down so many times and the other heavy stuff that I did, without any help, I'm suffering today. Maybe the weather has something to do with it too, but, YOWSA, my pain is flaring for sure!!!

I' ll probably have what I call as an "aspirin omelet" for breakfast. That's when I take a handfull of aspirin and call it an omelet, LOL

Actually, I'm trying a new recipe from sparksrecipe.com
it's Applesauce Oatmeal Muffins, and the recipe is from, well it did not print of the recipe, who da thought it?

I think they will be out of the oven in about 2 minutes, so I'll let them cool and try them.

The only thing about these muffins that almost threw me off, was the time it takes to prepare them. I almost missed that you have to soak the oats in milk for an HOUR.
Opps, I hear the timer going off, next will be the smoke detector. LOL
OK, I'm back, I wish I had smellivision
or smelli'puter so you could smell these muffins

I put some craisens, orange flavored, into the batter
between the cinnamon and the orange

If you are interested in finding the recipe,
the recipe is located at this address:
I love to try new recipes, especially at SP

Ya'll have a grrrrreat day now!
I'll try to make my best blubbering sound,
from me swimmin' in the rain,

    I love the rain, but it does put a damper on your plans (corny, I know, lol). I'm feeling similar pain today - I added land cardio to my gym routine yesterday instead of purely swimming and I can feel it, uggh. I'm only supposed to do water, but I felt very energetic at the gym. Boy I hate that delayed reaction.

    I hope that it clears up there soon. At least you have some yummy muffins to snack on!

    Ouch! Hope you recover quickly from your over-exertions.

    Those muffins sound far too good - I reckon you should pass them over to me so you don't eat too many! emoticon

    Could you possibly email some of those muffins? They sound great.

    Sorry you are in pain. I hope it gets better soon.

    Sorry to hear of your pain - been there, done that too. Thankfully it usually doesn't last too long if it is overextending on your muscles.

    We finally had some much needed rain but you really can get too much!

    Yummy muffins! Enjoy!!

    Hi Tony, glad to hear you are doing well. Sorry about all the rain. We are getting some up here in NW Illinois, but I hear that you folks down south are really getting hit hard! I hope you enjoy your muffins. Have a great weekend! (sending your some virtual sunshine)
