Hot Apple Muffins

My hair tends to be greasy on top and dry at the ends. I wash it everyday and condition the ends very well. I know there are some lucky ladies which can skip a day or two but unfortunately I can't. Well, I was following my normal routine and my hair was looking bad. It was hard to comb and greasy on top.  I was even washing it longer than normal to make it look half way decent but it still looked awful. Recently, I had started using a new type of shampoo and conditioner but it had looked good for the first couple of days before this crazy look began. After several days of this happening, I figured I better take a look at the shampoo. When I looked at the shampoo bottle, I noticed the label had been placed onto the bottle a little strange. Then I realized what had happen. When my son took his shower, he must have been a little bored and took off the labels. Then he put then back onto the wrong bottles. He has done this several times in the past but the bottles are normally a different color. The new shampoo and conditioner bottles were the same color with a similar consistency of thickness in the liquid. So, I was conditioning the top of my head and really cleaning the ends of my hair. Since I was placing extra conditioner on top with little on my ends, I was achieving the look I was striding to avoid. The best part of my new look was my husband didn't say anything but he would tell me that he always thinks I look good. However, I've changed shampoos. Now, the bottle is a different color than the shampoo.

Well, I made these wonderful apple muffins. They have a great flavor and taste. My daughter ate three of them. She normally eats one muffin and calls it good. She ate three. What more can I say about these muffins besides make them today or maybe tomorrow or maybe today and tomorrow.
