I usually eat eggs for breakfast (either hard boiled or scrambled) but I am egged out today so chose oatmeal instead. Normally I cook my oatmeal with pumpkin pie spice and add a dollop of agave nectar, but this morning I decided to flavor it with a bit of instant coffee and a splash of chocolate extract, with the usual dollop of agave nectar. It was delish!See this image largerThis would be perfect for an April Fool's Day party!!!See this image largerBeing healthy isn't just about eating right and exercising.

These photos were taken about 8-10 miles upwind of where I live. My allergy meds just can't keep up with it. My poor air purifier is working it's little heart out today. (I left a window open, not realizing how bad it was going to get before I got home.)See this image largerI've lost 5 lbs in 11 days. Not bad at all.

I know I'm blowing the feed up with flower photos, but Spring last such a short time here and this year has been such a beautiful one due to the winter rains we had, so I'm really enjoying it while I can.
