|There is this green glob in my blender these days...|
|The main ingredients are 2 of these bananas...|
|2 cups of this stuff...|
|And a 1/2 cup of this yogurt.|
All mixed together, they make a pretty ok breakfast. The blender wakes everybody up, the looks of this in a cup drives people from the kitchen, and drinking it leaves me longing for toast and peanut butter, but those Christmas cookies are still hanging around and I want to get rid of them. No big steps, just some healthy changes. I did this last year too and it paid off. Plus I'm getting the old runners on in the early a.m. again too. I love walking out just before the sun comes up. Last year I watched spring arrive day by day and I will again this year. Not from the comfort of my couch with a cup of tea, but on the roads and pathways of our neighborhood. Lovely.

|Sun through the trees|
|At the beginning of our walk.|
|Patrick loves the sun but found the wind a little cool.|
|And this beauty. Lichen under a microscope.|
We went for a walk yesterday. It was too pretty to stay inside. The sun was out, although only in brief snatches of light here and there. I am tired of the gray. I want more sun, more blue sky, and some green, please! Everything to its own season, however.
In homeschool, we are charting the weather on a lovely new *bird* calendar we purchased. Everyday we write down the cloud formations, temperature, bird sightings, and any other trivia we can come up with. Great fun, and a reason to look outside every morning, first thing. We are thankful for each day God gives us.
