The Forsythia is in full bloom now. So pretty. It’s one of my favorite flower bush that comes out in April. Plus my favorite Plant stand called Hemingways is open for the season. I love that place.
The trees are starting to get buds on them for new leaves. Everything is so nice to see with the newness of Spring after a long winter.
I made a Spring vegetable soup for lunch yesterday. I had asparagus, peas, carrots, mushrooms, onions and celery in it. I put Cannellini beans and bone broth in it as well as thyme. It was just right for a chilly Spring day. A glass of wine was just the finishing touch.
A neat idea that I found is to prep veggies when you first buy them and put them all chopped up for soup in storage bags. It was an idea that I found on Pinterest where it showed the veggies prepped for you at a French Farmers market in Paris. I love stuff like that.
If little kids can find a puddle, they will walk through it whether they have boots on or not. They are somehow attracted to puddles on rainy days.
I love my Pioneer Woman mason jar container that has a butterfly on it and the flower cover. I made a smoothie yesterday for breakfast that had yogurt, banana, dark cocoa powder, pumpkin seeds, peanut butter, maple syrup and lots of ice cubes. It tasted like a thick chocolate shake and it’s one of my favorites to put in my Pioneer Woman mason jar.
Plus I started making a To Do list in my organizer and writing in my journal each day. I decided to read a chapter in the bible each morning. I say a special prayer each morning and each night for my family and loved ones.
And I do a 2 mile walk from a Leslie Sansone DVD and an age reversing workout called Classical Stretch with Miranda Esmonde-White DVD . It takes about an hour to do both. I have been faithfully doing the workouts since Monday.
So that’s my thoughts for today.
