Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Hi everyone! Did you miss me?
September did not start out very well for me. I have been the sickest I've been with the flu in years. Almost two weeks of it and the weekend was especially bad! Also, our family had some heartache come our way which was unexpected. But I'm feeling better now and my beloved auntie called me who always manages to lift my spirits. There is always sunshine behind a cloudy day. And it's most important to have SONshine in your life. 

I saw my urologist this morning and I am only to drink decaffeinated beverages from now on. Tea will be harder to find because I am fussy about the tea I drink. Coffee will have to be decaf as well. Can you tea lovers suggest a good decaf or herbal tea? I'm going to have to make a trip into Davids Tea to see what they offer.

I clipped some of my pansies and petunias and brought them in for this simple bouquet.
My post is all about simple things; simple flowers, no fancy dessert; just a simple cup of tea.

Once I started to feel better, I was aware that Hubby had no sweets of any kind to nibble on so after he went to work, I decided to do some baking. I made his favourite treat again; cinnamon rolls or "snails" as our eldest son always called them.
Fresh Island blueberries are out now so I decided to bake some muffins too.

These muffins are really good because they're made with oatmeal and blueberries. 

I made two dozen blueberry muffins so half of the cinnamon rolls and muffins will be going into the freezer. Most of my recipes you can find on my sidebar when you print in search this blog.

I am using my Sadler teapot and Paragon teacup today. The teacup is a lovely shade of soft yellow with pretty pink posies adorning the inside of the cup. Something pretty to look at while sipping your tea.

This teapot is called Spring Crocus.

It's interesting that this teacup has a little leaf on the handle similar to Royal Albert's little leaf.

These muffins are very moist and delicious.

This week it's back to school for our children and grandchildren. All of our grandchildren will be hitting the books again and our youngest son starts teaching classes at the university. May the Good Lord watch over them all and guide their footsteps!

I hope your September is off to a grand start! Thank you for your visit and have a beautiful week!
