Oh, Yummy! Fresh Eggs!

I was out running errands this morning without stopping to eat anything first.  Not a great idea, but I did it anyway.  When I got back I made some omelets for Miss Ru and me.  I picked up some organic baby spinach and fresh mushrooms while I was out and about, so of course those had to go in, along with some shredded cheddar.


I had mine on a couple of corn tortillas.  Perfection!  I feel life coming back into me.


This was one of my errands this morning.  On Saturday, Mr. Muddling and I were out taking care of some errands, or at least that was our plan.  After this we decided most of them could wait.  I was driving and the man in the pickup truck in front of us took a turn to the right.  Then, he abruptly decided he wanted to go back the way he had come, so he u-turned into our van.  Fortunately no one was hurt and he accepted complete responsibility, so now I've done all the fun things you have to do when there's an accident and I just have to take it back to the body shop to get it repaired.


On a brighter note, the coleus from last year have survived quite nicely.  This pot is happily brightening up the area by the front door.


I'm really not sure of the name of this plant.  We always called it snow on the mountain, but the pictures that I can find on the internet are not this plant.   It came from my grandmother's house many years ago.  I love it for that reason, but it's also a pretty neat plant.  The leaves are variegated green and white, but the white turns pink when it's put out in the sunshine.  It will also look pretty for a long time (and usually root, as well) if you cut stems and put them in water. I keep it as a houseplant, but it can grow out in the garden, too, as long as it doesn't freeze.  I lost all of mine one year with a freeze, but thankfully I had given cuttings to my neighbor earlier and she replenished my supply.  Being generous pays off sometimes, doesn't it?

I hope your day is full of only good and happy things!

Hugs and kisses,

  1. So glad no one was injured in the accident. And your omelet looks yummy...love spinach. Was the snow-on-the-mountain a groundcover when you looked it up? I had it growing in my first home, very evasive. I don't know what the plant you have is but I like the pink leaves.

  6. Yum, that looks delicious! What a shame that he dented your car. Glad to hear he accepted full responsibility.
