Can you feel it???
The sun is trying very hard to shine amongst the clouds and there is only a little cap of snow on Mt Wellington. This could all change tomorrow, but today, it feels like Winter is departing. We even had our first daffodil open up yesterday. Hooray!
After a three week love affair with Strepsils, passionfruit, warm water with honey and freshly squeezed lemon, Euky Bear Rub and codral cold and flu tablets, I’ve finally given in and started taking antibiotics and this chest infection is FINALLY clearing up.
We ate lunch outside today. It was pretty yummy, lots of fruit, home made blueberry yoghurt (Easiyo), some shredded wheat meal biscuits (with butter – yum!) and whole meal muffins with a baby spinach, zucchini, herbs and cheese and tomatoes on top after cooking (because they get too hot). I had avocado on mine too.
Eating outside led to the most outdoor play we’ve had in ages (this was my fault, I haven’t stepped foot outside much while I’ve been sick). The play equipment got righted again after strong winds, and the net went up on the trampoline. We bounced and rolled on the trampoline and looked at the clouds to see what shapes we could find (helicopters, fish, diggers and birds).
Master O sold me ‘ice-cream’ from the window of the plastic play equipment.
So I’m happy that today Spring briefly came to town. Unfortunately the ants have decided to come to my kitchen so I’m now heading back inside to work on that problem!
Is Winter leaving where you are? Are you getting outside more? And most importantly, have you joined in on Danni’s Spring Cleaning challenge yet??
