Yesterday Was A Cranberry Morning

Made cranberry cream cheese muffins - early  morning, using Nan's recipe.   Have used many of her cookie recipes and always so good.   So good but I did use a glaze of fresh orange juice and a little confectionery sugar since cranberries are tart, pleased I did.  Posted on Saturday, September 5, 2015.
Soon breakfast of waffle with more cranberries sliced banana and green tea.
several hours after breakfast ate 2 of the muffins with a glass of milk
so good....

Did some research as I had forgotten how good cranberries are for you and this one needs all
the good food she can consume...

In the burning pile I saw this
interesting an image on the a piece of wood from a small tree that was cut down
I place it on a section of the big tree removed, told the tree cutter to roll it over by
some chairs to use for a small table.
A neighbor stopped by and counted the rings on my tree and said it was 55 years old.
So sorry it had to be cut down but will surely feel safer during storms.

Enough shared
end of my day
very weary
and just wish I did not have the pain that is continual and balance issue.
Cannot tolerate any pain medication and just trying to be ever careful with this balance issue.

Sunday morning and 45 degrees in the country,
a beautiful sunny and warmer week expected...

I truly congratulate you on how active and busy you are while dealing with the health issue. Let us hope some research or weather change or something brings just the healing you need. Cranberries are such a bright addition to food!!

Hope you are feeling better. Your breakfast and (Nan's) muffins sound delicious! Love the image in the segment of wood. Looks like a blossom to me. What do you see in it?

Tabor, thank you - try to not get discouraged and just keep moving. So weary
of blood work and told all is fine just arthur. So guess if this all it is
that is good. Does slow me down :)

The image in your piece of wood looks like a turkey to me. Take care.

This time of year puts me in mind of cranberries, too. There is tart I want to make for dessert soon. We have had to cut down trees for the same reason, and while we are sorry to see them go it's better to be safe.

I always look forward to a feast of your posts which I had today, though unhappy that you had to drive yourself to the hospital but oh I can relate, my independence scares me sometimes, I hate not being in charge of my life.

I could relate also to my friend who died as she was built like you and me and all she wanted was to see her home one more time and it never happened. My dad was the same and it never happened.

I felt bad for the tree but understand, low risk now we can't take chances.

And stay where your hands are. I try to.

Love you.

WWW, I think we are twins even though thousands of miles apart :)

I wonder what would I do without the special comments..

So sorry about your continued pain. I feel so blessed to not have health issues, only nervousness that comes with every little event. The side table is perfect for your "neck" of the woods, and I saw a blossom also. Take care...

I like the idea of the glaze!! I love cranberries. I'm sorry you hurt. Are you not able to take even tylenol? You might look into a company called Boiron. They make homepathic medicines for a myriad of conditions. There is a pain one called arnica montana. More here:
