Yesterday was a beautiful day! Sunny and warm with little wind. I decided to go birdwatching and brought the camera along. :) I saw robins, chickadees, rock doves/pigeons and northern flickers! I am trying to learn how to identify birds by sound...the best way is to listen for a sound and look for the bird that is making it! I spent about a half an hour trying to find a woodpecker just by it's woodpecking...finally found it! It was a male northern flicker looking for lunch. :) I also got some good pictures of some Rock Doves...Doves are one of my favorite birds! There are 2 pairs that nest in our hay barn that always fly away whenever people come near...I climbed on top of they bales and waiting for them to come back, which they did, but they flew back out before I got a picture of them and didn't come back. I am going to try again sometime soon.

 My favorite picture...

 Hello kitty. :)

Happy Easter!

Luke 24:1-7 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed dow...n with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’” Then they remembered his words.

He is risen!

Chocolate Muffin in a Mug

This is one of my favorite breakfasts EVER!

1 Egg
3 Tbls Flour
1 Tbls Cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbls water
1 Tbls oil (I use coconut oil.)
Sugar or sweetener of your choice. I use 1 Tbls.

Mix 1 egg in a coffee mug. Measure rest of ingredients into mug and combine SUPER WELL! Microwave for 1 minute - 1 minute 20 seconds. I prefer mine more well done. My sister likes it more wet and gooey on the outside. Top with redi whip and enjoy. :) I  like to have a couple pieces of turkey bacon for some extra protein. Speaking of protien - I sometimes substitute 2 Tbls of the flour for whey protein powder for an extra boost.
