One of my favorite things about Spring is the sound of birds chirping in the morning.
We have these trees in our yard that the birds (and bats!) love. The sound of them chirping away, having conversations with each other that I don’t understand, makes me happy.
They’re awake before I am, ready to face the day.
Excited about the warmth of the morning and the sun rising just a bit earlier.
Their joyful cooing always raises my spirits.
And the roosters across the street don’t hurt either ;) All these sounds around us remind me that there are bigger things happening than whatever is going on in our little house! The changing of the seasons doesn’t just affect me – things are blooming and changing all around me.
This morning, Nick and I woke up with the birds and I got started on the Ultimate Banana Split.
The only thing I’m missing today is ice cream, but I thought I’d save that for a special Friday-kick-off-the-weekend meal ;)
Besides the whipped cream, I had all the necessary toppings!
- 1 small banana, split
- 1/3 cup oatbran, cooked with 1 cup water, pinch salt, cinnamon
- Dark chocolate dreams pb
This pineapple is so good! I don’t think it will last much longer…
I may be the last person to join Twitter, but I did it – thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! I think I’m already addicted…
