I know what you must be thinking…baking in July, really? With expect highs in the 90s this week, I probably won’t be turning the oven on either. But head on over to ‘The Creative Mama’ anyway, and I’ll tell you a little more about our favorite zucchini muffins and why taking a few easy steps now, can mean enjoying summer zucchini (and these muffins) in the fall and winter months.
Yesterday marked the end of another school year. I can hardly believe how fast it all went, seems like we were just buying school supplies, and now here we are making our summer bucket lists. It’s all good though. We are ready. Ready for a slower pace in the mornings, summer adventures and time at the pool.
While I look forward to warm summer days, and time together at home, there’s usually a bit of trepidation too. It’s only a matter of time before the bickering sets in along with, ‘Mom, what are we gonna do today?’ followed closely by the ever popular, ‘Mom, I’m hungry!’
It finally started to feel a little like spring around here this week. And by finally, I mean that there was no snow in the forecast (yes, we had SNOW in MAY) and the temperature reached a balmy 72 degrees with sunshine.
Our whole neighborhood seemed to emerge in celebration of the sun. The rumble of lawnmowers and children’s laughter filled the air. My boys have started asking when we can fire up pizza on the grill and eat outside. My answer? Not soon enough!
Welcome to March! Can I just say, that although I know this month can still bring some snow, the fact that it is March 1st means that April is only one month away. And that means SPRING! This week more than any I’ve heard more people say that they are tired of winter. ‘Tis the season I think. Stores are full of spring colors and clothes. There is talk of Easter and gardens. And in 9 short weeks, I’ll be running my favorite spring half marathon. Each week I cross off the training calendar brings sunshine and warmth just a little closer.
