Mindful Mornings

The boys have been sleeping in, so I have enjoyed my morning tea in quietness and solitude this week... cherishing the sunlight and the bird song.
The other day I made almond milk for the first time ever - pressing the almond milk from the pulp succeeded with the help of a colander and a cotton cloth.

The left over almond pulp tastes good with yogurt. I added some banana, cinnamon, Vanilla and s bit stevia, and baked almond cookies from the rest of the pulp - they were Delicious!
The mindful mornings have brightened up the week - even if I'm still working another two weeks before the summer holidays, the slow mornings gives me the holiday mood all ready!
Sunshine and mindful moments to your weekend,

  9. Hi Nina!! So excited that you wrote back :)

    I didn't get an email about Copenhagen from you...did you use the email box on my blog site? I do get emails from there. That's weird.

    My family and I will be in your city for one day. We are staying at a hotel close to the Tivoli, and have an afternoon to see some sights. My husband had noted that there were some museums close to the hotel, and of course, we HAVE to see the Mermaid. I know that would be a cab-ride. I am kind of interested in the canal rides...where would we do that?

    Thank you for being a tour guide! You can always make a 'comment' on my blog, and I won't publish it? That way I know I'll get the info.
