Hubs was asleep. We just came back from an almost full day outing, from breakfast to visiting my parents to shopping - it is hot, and driving home seemed like a long, long journey.. Zzzz.. All I wanted to do when I reach home is to just fall onto my comfy bed and doze off... Until ten minutes later, I just could not sleep or rest. And so I woke up, tried to organise some of my clothes and then thought, my kitchen. Some clean up would be good for the kitchen..
Then I stared at those baking pans and ingredients that Ihave not touched in a few months - since I got pregnant. What a waste it would be to just leave them until they expire... I have not had any mood to cook, not even a plain simple fried rice in 3 months since I found out I am pregnant. Well, before that I was busy studying for an exam. My blog has been left abandoned - till I baked my chocolate chip muffins today.
Here they are. My muffins. All nice and yummy. I placed one just beside hubs in the bedroom, he was half awake, and I told him, "There is a little present for you beside the bed when you wake up.". 5..4..3..2..1.. I heard him yelling at me that I made muffins? He he he... It is so nice to surprise someone you love when they least expect it, no?
