Shades of Autumn: red

Thanks to everyone who has been praying for me today - it was so much better than yesterday. I actually got a few minutes of peace and quiet today. I let Katie-Abigail paint, one of her most therapeutic activities, and she was overall more calm. The swelling and redness in her face has diminished significantly as well, however she is still extremely itchy, even with all of the medicine she is taking.

I made some muffins (pictured above) and muffin bread from a recipe that my friend texted me. Yes, it is that easy. 
Here's the recipe:
1 15oz can pumpkin 
1 spice cake mix
1/3 cup water
They are very moist so don't over-bake them. I think I baked the muffins at 350(f) for about 15-20 minutes and the muffin bread was closer to 30 minutes. Yum! Couldn't be easier!

The color challenge today is red - my favorite mug is red and I've been drinking tons of coffee lately (four cups today!) I have to really work at not over-doing it in the caffeine department when the weather turns. I love coffee and tea. Also apples are red and autumnal. So there you go. At least today's post has a photo! Hopefully I'l get a chance to photograph some of the pretty leaves around here tomorrow!

Oh that recipe sounds like something the boys would just love to make with me. Thanks for sharing!

Adore your red cup. I like rich colored coffee cups especially in the fall/winter. It makes me feel just that much warmer.
