Well, here we are already with the first week of April coming to a close. Easter is drawing near, the sun is shining, things are looking greener and warmer weather is inching ever closer.
I’m enjoying the beauty of the season and see signs of spring all around me..in the grassy plumes of the daylilies, the joyful sing-song calling of the birds and the fresh little leaves on the trees. I can hardly wait for everything to burst out in its full splendor.
I’ve been feeling impatient for my flowers to start blooming so I picked up a few violas the other day to capture a little more of that springtime feel. My daughter was so excited to get her fingers in the dirt and start planting. Over and over, she said, “Please Mommy, is it time to start making our garden?” She got out her little shovel and watering can and was all set.
Once she had her fill of playing in the dirt, she noticed these blueberries that I had purchased the same day and wanted to get right into those too!
These big, blue, tasty berries were a key ingredient in some tarts I was making. And the left over berries? Well, she ate those faster than a wink!
Our treat turned out quite delicious…and rather fattening too, since it had a cream cheese filling and an almond shortbread crust. Although sweets like that are a very occasional occurrence at our house, I’ve been thinking that I need to eliminate even more sugar from our diets.
Food-focused articles or documentaries are something that always capture my attention. Have you been hearing all the discussion lately about sugar? I worried about it before, but even more so now.
So, goodbye tarts…I bid you adieu. Blueberries, you can stay…and the flowers too. Oh look, that rhymed 🙂
I’m determined to be an even healthier eater…just enjoying all the delicious fruits and veggies that will soon be found springing up fresh from gardens all around town. I can’t wait!
Well, I guess that’s all for now, sweet people. I hope you have a wonderful and joyous weekend. Happy Easter to you ♥
