My yummy freshly baked blueberry muffin....eat your hearts out! LOL

I had extended my stay in Torrance for a couple days to help take care of my Mom after she was released from the hospital and Alice asked if I had time to meet for coffee before I left which I was very excited about!  I had pretty much spent a whole week at the hospital round the clock and except for dinner two nights, I had not left my parents side in over a week.  It was hard to say goodbye and I was kinda dreading the 7 hour drive back so meeting Alice for a caffeine jolt was a great idea! 

For those who don't know Alice (Alicegourmet) she has to be one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people you will ever cross paths with!  She has offered to help check on my Mom if need be and she always makes sure us TB's are well nourished and taken care of! LOL.

  She is an amazing baker (hopefully I get to try her cooking next time I am down!!) but I can attest her desserts are to die for!  And if you are lucky enough, you might get to try her TB cookies!  

We met at Peet's coffee in Torrance and she told me she was bringing goodies!!! Ooooooooo....she baked fresh blueberry muffins.  OMG, soooooo yummy! I ate one and thought I'd save the other for road trip snack on the drive back! :-)  I really enjoyed sitting and catching up with Alice but like I figured, I ended up staying for a couple hours and I still had to go back and pack and say my goodbyes to my parents!! Eeeek.  We left Peet's at almost 7pm and I ran home to get packed so I wouldn't be getting home at 3am. 

When I got in the house, Mom was actually out of bed and she was finally getting her appetite back.  She saw my little goodie bag and being a good daughter, I offered her my other blueberry muffin. It was one of the first things she's actually eaten in over a week! I ran and got packed and finally got on the road.....at 8:30pm! LOL. 

After some issues with road construction and freeway closures...I was finally home at 2:45am! Of course, with the caffeine I couldn't sleep and logged on TB to work on my blog! :D
