lovely day

I am very excited and grateful for the beautiful, sunny weather. 58 degrees today. This week the lovely weather is suppose to continue – as each day the temps rise just a bit – bringing us to 72 degrees on Friday.  Beautiful Beautiful.
Love being outside.
This week I will clean up the yard/garden, get all of the pots ready for planting. It may be a silly notion – I am going to attempt growing many flowers for the wedding. Must get the seeds planted – and keep pots in a protected space … this week may be warm, though winter is far from over.

Today’s simple recipe – the best lunch … and still have more for later

Cleaned out the fridg this morning …a job I so do not like doing … love it when something happens to inspire me.

Found lots of veggies from the past few days.
Decided to make something up to use them and hopefully create a new fun thing to eat.

Oil and garlic sautéed in a large pot
Threw carrots, lima beans, corn, cauliflower and broccoli
Stir Рsaut̩ for a bit
Then add [any] package of Knorr Sides [rice isle in grocery store] – this time I had Knorr fried rice – other times I have used other packaged Knorr [rice] sides.
Add 2 cups of water – bring to boil [stirring] –
Might want to add a touch more of salt, pepper and a touch of turmeric 
Then simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes –
Yum and so so easy …

We watched an amazing documentary this afternoon – Coral Reef Adventure.
I so love it when we walk away from a documentary experience with so much more than we originally thought. Worth the watch.

At the end of the piece, were the words below:

What we must do is encourage
A sea change in attitude
One that acknowledges
We are a part of the living world
Not apart from it
                Dr Sylvia Earle

I have been teaching much through the watching of documentaries during the past couple of months. It has been a wonderful experience – so much learning happening here. I love it.
