wishing...

it's just me again.....
wishing.
dreaming.
possibly whining, too:)

this is Wednesday, isn't it?
so it must be "WHITE WEDNESDAY"
in blogland.
usually that means some pretty shots of
white, vintage, rustic, CHARMING decor.....or something like that.
but not today.

today, i am WISHING for snow.
you got it......
SNOW!

 after living in south florida for 16 years,
i've come to realize that september is the HOTTEST month....
even worse than july and august...
and let me tell you, those months BURN YOU UP!

maybe it's beause we are thinking of all things FALL too.....
but it still feels like summer and it seems it might just last forever!
(i did say a bit of whining might be going on here:)

i've been THINKING,
with the weather patterns changing the way they are, 
couldn't we be BLESSED with just one, old fashioned
SNOW STORM?
 just once?
(definitely snowed in!)

in the meantime,
i'll gaze at these pictures and dream on:)




i want to make one of THESE......
and drive one of THESE.......

 so what are YOU wishing for today?
besides wishing I would shut up and stop whining
about the blue skies, white sandy beach and glistening Gulf of Mexico
that i am forced to live with every day?
 (heeheehee)

maybe you're wishing for a YUMMY recipe....
one like SNICKERDOODLE MUFFINS.
 oh my goodness...
just think how good these would be on a SNOWY morning.
in front of a fireplace, with a steaming mug of cocoa.
 let me know if you make these.
and also what YOU are WISHING for these days.
 
well.....guess i'll go for a walk on the beach this morning
before i start digging out my pumpkins.
my WHITE pumpkins:)
getting ready for FALL...and wishing for a SNOW DAY:)
happy WHITE wednesday!
 
and just because i like you......
here's the recipe for: 
 
Snickerdoodle Muffins
2 sticks unsalted butter       1 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla       2 eggs
¾ tsp baking soda      ¾ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp cream of tarter       ¾ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 and ¼ cup sour cream             2 and ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar and 2 TBSP cinnamon mixed together for rolling
1.Cream the butter and sugar until soft about 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix until each is incorporated.
2.In a separate, mix together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder and cream of tarter.
3.Add the flour mixture and the sour cream alternately to the egg-butter mixture in the additions. Start with the flour and end with the flour. Scrape the bowl occasionally.
4. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out  muffin batter one at a time and drop into a shallow bowl filled with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll the muffin around in the mixture until it is covered completely in cinnamon sugar.. Place muffin into a greased muffin tin.. Depending on the size of your tins, you should get about 12 to 14 muffins. Bake them for approx. 20-22 minutes in a 350F oven or until they are golden brown.

XOXOXOXOXOXOX

  1. Love this post. I do not do heat well either. I live in Ohio so I will get some of that snow. Hopefully not like the one that had so much on the roof. Wonder if the roof caved. Last year I was posting how I wished for snow, in
    November, I think.
    What I am wishing for today is that my little Yorkie would get better. Her tummy is so bloated. She is on 6 meds.....and has had all kinds of tests and it isn't getting better. She is only 6.
    If your wish comes true you will probably make a history record.

  2. Sorry to hear it is so hot there. Here in Mi. it has cooled down to the 60's . We are wearing long pants and long sleeves once again.And a jacket or sweater now and then. But I am not wishing for snow yet! Once it comes, it stays way too long. Make yourself a snowcone and put your feet in a bucket of ice water to cool off. Ha!
    Blessings and hugs~

  3. Girl, I always wish for snow. ALWAYS! And every one I know that lives in a snowy place tells me when the first flake falls.
    LOVE THAT!
    We come close, in fact it falls to about 500 feet in the hills above us - but just doesn't seem to make it down this far...at least not in the 8 years that we've lived here.
    Sigh.
    now I am going to think of you whenever I am wishing for snow... :)
