It’s Spring!

Don’t let that fool you though…it was in the high 40’s with around 35mph winds! I was dying out there in so many layers I could barely move!  But, I got to see what I was looking for!  Sadly I can’t disclose anything other than that to you…I signed my life away to them.

I don’t know what the little yellow flowers are but the poppies are coming out!  I love the poppies!

Anyhow, that smoothie from breakfast was really early (cat woke me up just after 5am) so I had a nice snack of two handfuls of pistachios and an apple.  It wasn’t enough so I grabbed a muffin as I walked out the door to the field.

Crazy wind blown and happy, I headed home and ate my lunch: pb and banana sandwich. And a few slices of dried mango too. Man, I love those things.  I need to figure out how to make my own when mango season starts!!!  I’m going to gorge on them when I go to Kauai in May!  Yay!

I spent the rest of the afternoon baking up a storm…it’s too freak’n cold and gloomy outside not too.  That and I had two very very ripe bananas chill’n on the counter.  Guess that happens when you leave for three days huh? Oops.  It made something delicious though!

Anyway…I caught up on a few things and finally realized what time it was: Dinner! I had black beans leftover from last weeks enchiladas so I sautéed them in some spices with frozen onions and bell pepper on top of a salad with organic blue corn chips on the side.  Of course I smashed them up to add crunch to the salad.

And for dessert I had to try one of my baked goods!  Blackberry bread anyone!?

    Ohhh spring looks beautiful!! Those dough balls look amazing, too. I made a batch of the sugar cookie ones for Christmas and they were kinda flat, but they were the biggest hit of all the cookies at our party!

    Can you discuss "fear clothes" in one of your posts some time?

    I deal with fear clothes like tight jeans, tight shirts, or anything that isn't slimming. And I think a lot of people have fear clothes. I want to get past that. Have you? Do you have "fear clothes"?
