Sundays are the shortest days of the week, right? I’m pretty sure this has been proven somewhere. Monday through Friday are never short at all, and Saturday always feels like there is so much weekend left. Then Sunday rolls around and everything you procrastinated doing is all up in your face, but all your face wants to do is stay in bed and binge-watch House of Cards.
I did manage to get a few things done today, one of which was baking these muffins so that we have something to grab and go during the week.
I didn’t follow her recipe exactly, which can sometimes be a disaster for me, but it worked out well this time. I was out of brown sugar, so I had to use “regular” white sugar, but I lessened the amount a bit. Instead of flaxseed, I used chia seeds (cut the amount in half if you do this).
I added some raspberries, which made them all cute and colorful.
And instead of adding the crumb topping, I sprinkled a little bit of cinnamon sugar on the top of each muffin. Because I’m lazy. Basically, I made an almost entirely different muffin than the one in the recipe, but I’m pretty pleased with the result.
Eating one gave me just enough fuel to finish cleaning out my closet and putting together a bag of clothes to take to the consignment store. I’m pretty psyched because while “shopping” in my closet today, I found a dress that, with just a few minor alterations, can be worn to at least one of the four weddings we have this year. A second dress still had the tags on it and, miraculously, I had saved the receipt back in November when I bought it, so I will be returning that this week to get a little extra cash for some new spring things!
And just like that, Sunday was over. But at least I get to look forward to this little guy tomorrow morning.
