Alright, I’ve hit the part of winter where I’m losing motivation to go outside.  I don’t want to ski or build a snowman, I want to sit on the beach in the sunshine.  I want to go outside with one layer of clothes, rather than six.  We’re getting there, right? I’m not a naive Duluthian.  I’ve lived here all my life; I know we’ll probably get three more snow days before Spring comes at the end of May, but I can hope.  In the meantime, maybe I’ll invest in some more houseplants.  That always makes me feel cheerful.  Or I could visit the Sun Spot.  I’ve never tried Duluth’s mobile spot to combat winter blues but I think it might be just what I need.

These muffins are so delicious.  Everyone in my family loved them.  And I loved knowing the kids were eating them with all those good ingredients.  I will probably double the batch next time because this one did not last nearly long enough.
