Waiting for Spring!

I think it's here. Well, at least it's trying. We woke this morning to a loud call outside. Nick thought at first it was a flicker but when I looked there it was larger than life: a pileated woodpecker. We saw one around here last spring and I am thrilled to see it return. Not sure he stays around here. Long enough to put huge holes in the trees on the front lawn Not sure it's a male either since I haven't done the research to see what the difference is between them.

Did I have my camera ready or nearby? Not likely. Perhaps next time.

This picture was taken yesterday afternoon. That's ice in the pool and hopefully in another month it will all be gone. Can't push the season too fast that's for sure.

On the green journey: full jug of green smoothie today. Recipe:

3 bananas, 5 strawberries, 4 handfuls of baby spinach and 1 stalk of celery. This was brunch as I generally don't eat anything Sunday morning.

For Monday: another smoothie,
great big, huge salad
nice long walk

Going to enjoy the weather as it's shaping up to be a wonderful week!

Til again,
