the happy day project: days 1-3
There hasn't been much to blog about around here this week. And I don't even have any cute pictures to show you. Boo. I think I have been in a little bit of a funk this week and I need to snap out of it. Monday it rained all day...one of those dreary days. Tuesday was rainy again and then it even snowed a little last night. And today I woke up feeling yucky. All that to say, I haven't kept up with The Happy Day Project like I was planning on. But I'm not giving up! (Man that sounded like a lot of whining...really the week hasn't been that bad...let's talk about something a little more happy!)
The Happy Day Project: Day 1
I made my mom's pumpkin muffin recipe. So good...and so easy:
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups cooking oil
1 3/4 cups pumpkin
3 cups flour
1 T cinnamon
2 t baking powder
2 t baking soda
1 t salt
brown sugar and chopped walnuts for top
Blend eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin. Add rest of ingredients. Mix until smooth. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle with brown sugar and walnuts. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
What about Day 2 and Day 3? My cards for day two are all printed out and ready to write in. Levi and I are going to send some notes to his aunt and uncles who live far away. We will work on that today. I haven't bought my gift card for the homeless yet either. Hopefully that will happen tomorrow.
Although I am behind, I am loving this project. It has got me thinking about other ways that I can be a blessing to the people around me on a more continual basis. It has helped me realize that I need to be thinking outward more often. I needed that reminder.
How about you? Are you participating in The Happy Day Project?
