I've been thinking and reading about riding bikes with my kids again. Though not to rationalize, starting in February might be tough with an out-of-shape mom and two less-than-enthusiastic kiddos. Maybe March?

May have found a perfect breakfast nibble. 

Also, we did love this hummus with the extra added step of emulsifying the tahini with the juice and bean cooking liquid added for good measure- it sure was smooth hummus!

Is it too early to be looking for signs of spring? I say no, despite Laura's photos to the contrary. My hens have started laying again. 

And post-molting they look so fresh and fine.
