Good Monday morning, my friends! I woke up with the sun yesterday and was greeted with this beautiful sight. Note to self: Slow down and appreciate the beauty God shares with us.
My kids requested raspberry muffins for breakfast. I was happy to oblige. They are as good as they look! I'd share the recipe with you, but I don't have one. If you want to try them...go to the store and buy this!
Yep. These! Sprinkle some sugar on top, and enjoy!
The muffins were good, but our smoothies were better!
We ended the day with homemade pizza. Rhett made the fresh mozzarella and basil, and I worked on the three-cheese pizza. We made the homemade sauce too. So easy and fresh.
Today I am going to the hospital to be with a dear friend who is having surgery. She is a wonderful person, and I am thankful to be able to be with her, as she has been there for our family many times over the years. Tomorrow Kirby has a vet appointment, and I am hopeful he will get some relief for the spots that keep appearing. He is fourteen years old, and the bumps bother him. Wednesday, we are planning on having my mom out for dinner! She loves the Fourth of July, and since the fireworks are way too late for her, Madison suggested we celebrate with her earlier. We will enjoy hot dogs, patriotic music, and sparklers on Wednesday evening!
Later in the week, I will clean the bathrooms and put fresh sheets on the guest bed because we have some visitors coming in for the Fourth of July! Luckily, they are such good friends I don't feel like I need to clean the whole house. That is how you know you found a true friend, right?
Well, I better get going. I hope you all have a relaxing summer day, my friends. Thanks for visiting! Stay cool!
It sounds like a beautiful beginning to your week, Billie Jo. I hope your friend does well today. I'm sure she is comforted that you are accompanying her. And yes, I enjoy having friends over for whom I don't have to be overly concerned what my house is like. :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lovely weekend and the pizza's look delicious.ReplyDelete
That's so nice of you to go with your friend to the hospital. I'm sure she feels a little more at peace knowing you're there with her.
Have a wonderful Monday!!

Good of you to go with your friend. We are picking Hub's 94 year old mom up on the 1st to take her with us to spend the 4th with our daughter.ReplyDelete
That sunrise photo is breathtaking! What a glorious way to wake!ReplyDelete

Enjoy your 4th with your mom and friends. Those raspberry muffins look yum.ReplyDelete
The muffins look fantastic - I can't believe they are jiffy but I love the cornbread mix too! Just add extra corn!!! Have a fantastic visit with your company! HUGSReplyDelete
Hi Billie Jo - I love Jiffy baking mixes. I make their cornbread muffins a lot but will not how to try the raspberries. You have a fun and busy week planned with visits from family and friends. I hope that all goes well and that you have a lovely, memorable July 4th! See you again soon!ReplyDelete
Those raspberry muffins look Yummy. I'll have to get them at the store sometime. And the pizzas look delicious. There's something about mozzarella cheese, so gooey and good. That will be nice for your mom to have a Fourth of July get together with you. She will enjoy the sparklers! I hope your friend's surgery turns out well, and I do hope your dear dog feels better and gets some relief. That sunrise photo is so pretty, and it's just calming looking at it. I really like the patriotic design on your blog when I visited this morning.ReplyDelete
Have a good week, Billie Jo, and stay cool this Summer.
