Yesterday was an absolutely beautiful day here in my neck of the woods. Isn't it funny how when Spring is just starting, you are so infatuated with the warm weather and the sunshine. It's like you've been deprived of it for too long and you are finally getting a taste! I am currently in that phase. I just can not get enough of it. I want to be outside every chance I get. I work in an office and don't see much sunshine during the day. I try to get out as much as I can now that I don't have to wear 27 coats and 6 pairs of socks. (I get cold easy) When I got home from work yesterday, I immediately grabbed the new issue of Southern Living and headed for the front porch swing.
Later on, we grilled some chicken on the back deck and I made some "homemade" coleslaw. Ya'll need to try this coleslaw I threw together! It was easy, delicious and healthy!! Just take a bag of shredded cabbage with carrots, add a jar of Marzetti's Reduced Fat Slaw Dressing and some chopped apples, mix it all up and let it sit in the fridge for a while. As my husband loves to say...it'll make you swaller your tongue! After dinner I looked up in the sky and noticed the stars. I know that doesn't seem like a huge deal...but you know, we get so busy and have so many things going on that we don't stop for just a minute to look around at the beauty God has created. I stared at those stars in the sky for a good while and I felt so peaceful. Take a minute today and look around!! You'll notice things you have passed a million times and never seen before!
