Muffin Mania #4 Everything Bagel Muffins

My brother thinks it’s weird I get excited over little things like I do. I think it’s weird he only gets excited about big things. After all little things happen far more often then big things. Here are a few little things I am excited about right now.

I have loved to read since I learned how. I blame it on my first grade teacher, Sister Mary Theresa. I loved her with all the love a 7 year old can muster. I would have done anything to make her happy. What seemed to make her happy was when you would read your chapter books to her so I was going to be the best darn reader she ever saw.

I still love to read. The first hour of my day is dedicated to a good book and a hot bath. It helps me get into a good mind set for the day.

Yeah, so this happened last week. My parakeet, Harper, laid an egg. I highly doubt it’s fertile and I am okay with that. I am way too young to be a grandma.

To give you a little perspective, the egg is about the size of a dime and takes about 1/3 of the belly of a 3 1/2 inch, from the top of her head to the start of her tail, bird. I don’t know how she did it.

I love this picture of me and Squeak. I took it just after I threatened to feed him to the gerbil if he didn’t quit plucking on the damn cage bars. As you can see he is quite terrified of my totally meaningless threat. Plucking the cage bars does drive me insane though.
