Pumpkin Muffins Low Carb

 Hi There..
 We are finally getting the rain here in NC that we needed so badly all summer.
 The grass is greener than its been in months and the 75 degree temps makes me smile.

 I'm so happy to have you visit me.  Wish we could sit out on the screened porch with some hot spiced tea and these muffins moist, delish Muffins.  They make the house smell like Fall and I know how Ya'll love anything Fall:)

  Even if weight loss and good health isn't important to you- you're gonna love these~!
 I mean seriously- a 5 minute cozy, comforting food on your plate with almost no mess to clean up..
 That's my kind of recipe..

 Lowering your daily carb count really is the secret of weight loss and feeling healthier and more energetic.  Carbs in foods slow us down mentally and physically and make our bodies have to work 5 times harder.. That's tough on the organs folks:) 

   I've lost 36 pounds since feb. 27th 2015 and never felt hungry or deprived. My glucose numbers are lower as are my cholesterol readings and blood pressure.
In general I feel better than I have in 20 years and all while enjoying yummy food.

 Sites, forums and groups all over the internet can give you all the information you'll need to change your life while enjoying a cyber community of helpful- informed- supportive folks.
  Does'nt get better than that ,right?

Fall of the Past

  I have a few things going on here at the ole homestead:)   so I thought I'd stroll down memory lane and invite ya'll to go with me.

  These photos are from 2012...its a bit sad to admit I don't know where most of the items I used disappeared to ..  That's what happens when you move and from a home you've been in 17 years, in a week~!     I hope someone else is enjoying the items in their fall home.  Every moment has a silver lining and to think its bringing someone else a smile is good enough for me.
I'm happy I have the photos though..

Thanks so much for taking time out of your busy day to visit me.. I always enjoy having you here..
