Surprisingly Good

By -

It always seems to be this way………..whenever the market day starts off totally boring and hum-drum is when I have a great day, and whenever things seem awesome and exciting (like early last week), the day sucks out loud.

So, as I was bitching this morning about how boring and dull things were, I left all my screens and went off to make my beloved family some banana nut muffins. I completely ignored the market, focusing instead of making sure the batter was well-aerated, since yesterday morning’s muffins were so dense they could have been used for personal defense.
