‘Off Season’ Muffins

Photo by Gale E

This is the season for super fitness


I’m participating in a corporate fitness challenge being hosted by a popular fitness and wellness center in Barbados. Not only am I participating, I was elected Team Captain … Lord have mercy!

Over the next six weeks, we are required to workout at the fitness center regularly (at least twice a day) to gain points; the team with the most points at the end of course wins the competition. No points however are awarded for our diet but it’s anticipated that to win well we will have to eat well.  All that being said, I’m merely asking for your support as these beautiful sprinkle-dusted muffins (which I make most weekends with the help of my dear friend Betty Crocker) are seriously ‘off season’ until the end of July. Pray for me …

The Beauty of Detail

 “This week, compose your subject off-center, obeying the Rule of Thirds.”

Definitely a challenge and as I didn’t have any photos of my own I successfully received the blessing of my son Nathan (if you are the parent of a teenager you will relate to the significance of this statement) to share three from his portfolio.

He’s really quite good at this photography thing but what do you think? Leave us a comment, as well as share the link to your photos so we can visit your blog.

Red flower, rule of thirds

 The blurred leaves and branches of the tree in the background of the photo below enhances the amazing detail of the flower petals in the foreground. I gave my son 100% for this one 🙂

Souls in beautiful blossom



“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.”

Gerard De Nerval

Love the colour yellow especially when it appears so beautifully on flowers all around us. My son knows this and so he captured this great creation for me one afternoon while walking in our neighbourhood (yes, even though he’s a teenager he has a thoughtful moment or two).
