The Beat Goes On

My dad loved music!  He really did - it's why my house is never void of it - it's how I grew up.

It's amazing the little things, all the little things, that are continuously popping up these days.  All the little things that remind me of him, make me think of him and all the things I will never forget about him.  It's still so unreal....

....but it sinks in, little by little.....

....mostly in the middle of the night.

I don't sleep much these days.  It's been just over a week since he passed and a few days since the funeral...but sleep, real restful sleep eludes me.  It's just the way it is, you cannot stop your mind in the middle of the night, you cannot control your dreams and restful sleep is over before it began.

It's okay though, in four more months I wouldn't have been sleeping much anyways! ;)

So the days, they continue.

I do the regular things, you know, like make muffins. :)

That's right, Super Fantastic Muffins - but now with wheat germ!

I was trying to make them more filling and it helps.  It's funny I didn't think of it until recently but it was my dad who first told me about wheat germ....funny.....hmm.  Anyways, they are tasty, these ones were made with frozen blueberries and cranberries...and chocolate chips, of course. ;)

Truth is....this is one of the only pictures I have taken in about a month......and I have a real issue about blogging without a picture.....so you get a little update on how I'm doing and a spiel about muffins, not bad for a Wednesday.

It is Wednesday...right?

I want to thank all of you lovely people for your kind - and oh so kind - words, prayers and cyber hugs!  I never knew or could have guessed how this world of blogging would have affected me when I started two years ago.  I'm real thankful I did.


So the beat goes on - some moments are good....others are not....sleep is an illusion and music a joy and a constant reminder.....but I am happy to remember...even when it hurts....

In other news, this little one inside of me is growing fast - only four more months and he is already quite active!  If I didn't know it was a boy for sure, I would be pretty certain just the same! ;)   People are still coming regularly to view our house and so I continue to keep it clean...and organized?!?!  The weather is insane, quite insane actually - in the span of 20 minutes today it went from sunny, cloudy, pouring rain, partly sunny, rain, hail and then clear?!?!  But I can almost taste Spring....almost!

I hope to get back on track in many things, my photography - obviously...because I don't know how many more muffin photos I can entice you all with.  My art, reading, getting out...oh and sleep!  Yes, that would be nice.

Again, thank you for all your prayers and love!  The Lord has blessed me with many wonderful people during this time and I am so very grateful!  He is good and I thank Him for each of you! :)

God bless!



  1. Still praying...love you and love your blogs. Save me a muffin. They look great. You will sleep well again, just give it time. And take time to pray in those wee hours when there is nothing else.

  2. I'm glad you are feeling love from the bloggers. I am praying and so is my bible study group. We hope you are comforted by the knowledge. God bless you.

  3. I have been thinking of you and praying all week. I feel so dreadfully sad for you. Praying for a peaceful day today.

  4. Showed my mom and dad the pictures you posted of your dad. He looked like a very sweet man. Continuing to lift you up girl. Oh and you should link up with feed my family Friday some week. I'd love to see some of your recipes.

  5. Duh...you DID link this week...Geesh;) I'm gonna try that cabbage!


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
