I am learning about spices.
I am adding flavor to our winter food rather than fats.

I am making a commitment to eating more flowers this coming growing season.
I want to harvest flowers for my table

and perserve them for next winter.

We are eating fresh sprouts everyday.
I am looking forward to the kitchen garden this year.

I am out of the kitchen.
I am on the deck
in the snow
with the birds.
I am bundled up.
I have my tea.
I send prayers to those who are suffering.

I send blessings.

The wind is from the east.
I am learning about spice.

Freezing Fog

Morning freezing fog coated the feeding station.

I watched as the female Cardinal took bites of ice.

"Be careful, it is slippery."
A busy morning at the suet.
Watching the fog lift was beautiful.
I did not stay out too long in the cold.

I am reading a couple of cookbooks today.

I want to expand my skills.
I want to add some spice
to our suppers.
