Hope you had a wonderful, but warm, weekend! Mine was good except for the frustration learning how to use my new Smartphone. Yes, I finally gave in to joining the Smartphone era. We moved our pre-paid account from my simple little phone that showed how many minutes and the date I needed to renew the service to this monster. That info is no longer on the screen. I had to download an APP to have it available to me. Now the screen shows how many minutes I have, the texting, and data usage. Say what? The other phone took off minutes when I talked and texted.

I don't want to become one of those folks who pay more attention to their phone than to their friends who are sitting at the table eating dinner with me.

I don't want to fall over a street curb because I was texting instead of looking where I was going.

I don't want to become so addicted I can't go without looking at the screen twenty or more times in a few minutes.

But then again, I don't want to lose out on the perks that people find so wonderful with a Smartphone. I know authors who write their blogs/books while sitting in traffic on their cell phone.  Crossing my fingers that I can find some advantages to having one.

Do you have a Smartphone? What do you like about it? Don't like about it? Please tell me in a comment below.

Blueberry Muffin Recipe

It's blueberry pickin' time in Michigan. Oh so good blueberries on bushes taller than Gardener Ted. No he doesn't grow them, but there are a LOT of blueberry fields near us. Picking blueberries is such a peaceful, pleasant venture. I'm afraid my DH and grandkids come home with just as many berries in their tummies as in the buckets!

My daughter called and wanted my friend Carol's recipe for Blueberry Muffins, so I thought you may be looking for one too. Carol's recipe is below. Enjoy!

Blueberry Muffins
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. blueberries
1 c. sour cream

Mix together. Put in baking cups.
Bale 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Please let me know if you try these and how you like them. I'm always looking for blueberry recipes. Do you have one?

I finally got one right before I published my debut. (I tend to resist new technology.) I didn't think I'd use it so much, but it's nice to be able to do some interacting when I'm not at my laptop.

My mom just got her first one a few weeks ago. At nearly 80, she's struggling a bit with the learning curve, but she's getting the hang of it. I'm cheering because I can text her now! :)

Hi Melissa! I'm still struggling too but we camped this weekend
with our kids and they showed me some things on the smartphone. Slow but sure, I'll get there. Glad you like yours. Gives me hope!
