Happy Glorious Friday! The very last day of winter, too! I hopped on the bike and went to the gym. I’ll be glad when the mornings are a little warmer for the ride there 😕

Biked home and set to making banana oat bran! My arms were feeling so weak after my workout that I could barely smash up the banana LOL. Good thing that feeling doesn’t last all day:
40 g oat bran, 1 medium banana, 2 egg whites, cinnamon, topped with jam and almonds. Perfecto!
Garden time today on my day off! Spent the morning getting rid of the old. I leave all this up for winter interest and for whatever snacks the birdies can find in it.
All cleaned up.
Lots more tulips nubbins coming up, too 🙂 I still need to prune 1 rose bush. Those are hard to me to hack away because I always worry I will take too much off (which is pretty hard).
Came in for some lunch. I wanted some color!
Baked sweet potato with laughing cow and sauteed broccoli. And strawberries.
If you think it looks good, you can be rest assured that it was.
Pixie shot of the day. John dubbed this “The last thing a mouse sees.”
I know a lot of people have gone to FitBloggin’ this weekend. I so wish I could have gone. If it was a month later, I would have been there. Make sure everyone sends updates! I’m jealous looking at all the people traveling in my google reader….
This latte might have included a shot of Kahlua…. just sayin’…. And there were a couple clementines on the side.
More garden clean up before dinner. It was 66 degrees and fabulous outside. Love it!
More colors for dinner:
Today was one of those days where all of my food tasted so good! Tonight is going out and meeting my folks for a beverage, so I’m hitting publish early and going to be social 😀 .
Stay tuned for a giveaway on my blog on Monday!
