So instead, you will get a bunch of random thoughts that aren't big enough for a post all their own.
I made cupcakes this weekend -- Streusel Topped French Toast Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream. They are diviiiine! Yes, I ate one. In fact I've been doing very poorly with my no gluten no sugar diet these past few weeks. Hence the scale is not going down, but is in fact going up again. Must remedy that now! Therefore no cupcake with this coffee. Anyways, if you're at all interested in the cupcakes I made, the recipe can be found at Bakingdom. Let me just say though that I personally found her way of writing the ingredients and then the directions hard to follow. Maybe I'm just a bit of a dunce like that though,
The kids have been in school five days and I have hardly even made a dent in all the things I need to do before I can do the things I want to do. I do have a clean mud room again, and (almost) all the beach towels are put away (I'm wondering if there are a few stashed in some kid or two's room yet, or if we lost a few again this summer), but those are the only two complete projects. *Sigh* I'm pretty sure I won't ever get caught up again, let alone get ahead.
I joined Pinterest. A long time ago already, in fact. I have made the time to make and do some fun things from my pins on there. In fact, that's where the cupcakes recipe came from that I tried. I also joined Goodreads. I have a bit of a word obsession and love to collect quotes and keep track of the books I read. One reason to like both those sites!
I'll leave you with a beautiful butterfly I captured on the camera this afternoon.

Well, that's it for now. Didn't I say I'm having a bit of writer's block :o)?
