I think it’s time to come up with an official name for this weird time between winter and the start of spring.
In our house, it’s mostly known as the-weather-is-nice-but-I’m-stuck-inside-with-my-second-head-cold-in-two-weeks.
But this time of year is tricky for me when it comes to breakfast and snacks.
The sun is shining, the weather is nicer than it was in early January, but it’s still not exactly warm.
I wake up so excited to see the sun shining before 7 am or feel the sunrays coming in the windows in the middle of the afternoon, and all I can think of is a huge smoothie.
And then I make it and remember just how chilly it still is outside. And how most of our windows have tiny cracks in them since this house is old and no matter what our heat is set on in the house, I will always always always be freezing after the first sip of a smoothie.
I made my first smoothie of the year last week and loved every sip – even if I had to put on my sweatshirt and slippers to enjoy it.
At least I have one new smoothie to make again when spring officially hits.
