Muffin Tin Monday and Little J.P.

Today is Muffin Tin Monday.  Themes have stopped for the summer, so muffin tins are whatever you make of them for a while.  I did a brunch tin for Pierce.  Blueberry muffin, mandarin oranges, sunflower shaped toast with marmalade, and some sausage.  It was a big hit.

Muffin Tin Monday at Her Cup Overfloweth

For those of you who read about the little Boston Terrier I found, her name was Gracie Lou and she was reunited with her family on Saturday night!  We were thrilled to find them.  Gracie Lou had been missing for 2 weeks and had travelled 15 miles.  That's really something for such a little dog.  She must've encountered others on her journey, and I wonder why she picked us as her 'home away from home'?  Did she somehow know we'd make every effort to try to reunite her with her family?  Poor Pierce, he was kind of sad to see her go.

And now, we have named another chicken.  My neighbor, J.P., doesn't like this chicken one bit.  When she took care of the chickens while we were camping, this chicken never wanted to be caught.  J.P. chased this chicken all over the place while my horses apparently stood by the fence and laughed at her.  And so, we've named the chicken Little J.P., seeing as they have such a connection now and all.  Incidentally, Horace should be the first to lay, and she should start in the next 2 weeks!  The others should be laying by July.  I'm so excited to start gathering our own eggs.

I am glad the dog made its way back home. The tin looks yummy! It is fun to make our own themes.

I love your bear cups for your tin. Very cute. And I have to say, I love reading about your chickens when I come to visit your blog. :)

This is Big JP...and I laughed so hard when I read about that dumb chicken getting it's name! Let alone that my FAVORITE neighbors had to tell everyone what a tough time I had trying to capture it while the horses stood by & laughed. Is that why Harriet's belly was bouncing around so much??? If you haven't tried Lisa's Granola Bars, you must do so...they are scrumptous!

Looks like a good lunch. I love the bear cups. I'm so happy to hear the dog was reunited. I'm sure the owners were more than happy!
