Those spring showers are here, so my rain boots are out of closet and in use. I detest sounding like I am complaining about being busy all the time, because we are all busy these days. Even though life is as hectic as ever, especially these few weeks juggling my work schedule with my son Alex’s visit, but I know how important it is to take the time and really connect with those that I love. Though there is no chance that my schedule is going to slow down in the few months, it’s been wonderful to have a few days away in Blue Mountain to relax and unwind. Sadly for Alex the snowboarding and ski season has passed leaving only a smattering of snow on the slopes. Today is filled with food preparation for tomorrow’s birthday celebration, I am trying my hand a few new gluten free recipes, but of course there will be chocolate birthday cake.
