Don't you just love an unexpected gift? Yes, I know, four bananas isn't much, but hey, it's something. You see, there's this new convenience store in the neighborhood and it's not just your average convenience store, it's a drive through grocery store and like other markets they carry produce that when it's not sold eventually starts to over ripen!
Yesterday morning I was heading out to run my errands when I stopped by Seasons drive through market for a diet Coke. The gal that came out to take my order asked if I could use some over ripened bananas. Instantly a picture of banana muffins popped into my head and next thing I knew I had a free bag of bananas.
It must have been a lucky day for our family. When I talked to DH in the middle of the day and told him about my good fortune, he told me that when he had stopped to buy gas and get a soda that the guy gave him his drink for free!
My children were delighted to come home from school to the smell of freshly baked muffins. Of course, since I don't ususally make muffins they started to wonder what was up with mom. Sheesh...can't a mom make muffins just because she wants to? lol!
Last night we went to watch a baseball game. Our friend, Austin, has been playing baseball since he was old enough to stand up to the plate. His hard work and dedication landed him a scholarship to our local university. This is his freshman year, but he's already making quite a name for himself! What a beautiful spring evening we had. Oh, and watching that full moon come up over the mountains was something else! As was the hot dog I had as a late night snack! YUM!
The next few days I'll be heavily involved in a Women's Conference at BYU, so hopefully after that I'll be able to get back to my sewing machine. I have a little kit that I want to get stitched up and need to get going on my class sample for Jo's Little Women's Club. I can't wait to get back to quilting!
