Another Cloudy Sunrise

Found this in my drafts. It's from June. Forgot to post it. Oops.

Whenever my old friend RAD is in town for some family business (or monkey business),
he'll call and see if I want to get up before the crack of dawn and go take pictures of the sunrise.
10 years ago, I would have told him to take a hike, but as I become older and more decrepit,
it's getting easier to get up early. Huh?

We've done this before when it was cloudy and not particularly colorful,
although there's nothing like a deserted beach all to yourself.
And son of a gun, we had an encore of cloudy. The pictures were completely uninteresting.
Even the sea oats were bare and dead looking. I think this is the best of the bunch.

Anyway, he made some whiny noises about broken promises of muffins
the last time he was here, so I dragged out the bowls & muffin tins & my finest groceries.
Had to shut him up about it (just kidding RAD).
No, really, it was my pleasure.

First were some peanut butter, banana & chocolate chip muffins.
I had some nice bananas,

some nice whole wheat flour,

and chocolate chips.

They turned out very well, considering. At least he said they were good.

I also decided to make some cheesecake muffins . . .

. . . with a dollop of strawberry jam in the center.

I think I liked those the best.

The muffins were better than the sunrise that day, for sure. When the clouds are flying like that, we need a new location - something with more interest in the foreground. Your post reminds me that I need to get down there again. The lotus pond is probably full by now. Your new camera needs to be constantly exercised.

The ingredients for the cheesecake muffins look amazing.

Rosie - yummmm. Those pictures were for RAD's benefit, to show him nothing was too good. I think he ignored them. Not so easy to find good mold in Google.

I smiled at the nastiness, but I know you would never put those ingredients in your muffins. Besides, by not responding, I got to tweak you back! ;-)
AND we do need to go see the lotus pond again.

Ahh, Rosie - I agree about those ingredients! But...on the bright side, with those ingredients, think of all the immunities you would have built up by eating those muffins!!!
