Just a Taste

This morning as I woke up to the sounds of my children playing laughing and crawling around, I heard a familiar laugh on my side of the bed. Pk-bo! Zae was trying her best to say peek a boo and laughing so hard at herself. It was great, the sun was bright and it was another morning wondering how to wake up peacefully. As I walked out the door with the little playful girl in my arms the familiar smell of strong coffee was in the air.
It took a long time for me to notice through the brightly lit windows that snow had fallen all the night before. I had cheerfully already left messages on a friends answering machine about a lunch potluck today, only to have her return the call to ask if i had looked out the window. Travelling on the roads was not a good idea. Another lunch date was made and we sought out plans to stay home and hibernate. As the months have gone on we have seen only peeks of sun and warm strolls during these days are enjoyed and longed for.
It did not take long to rest in the cabin fever as I tried to cheer up my anxious boys with some home baked bread. For a marvelous taste of Peanut Butter Banana Bread please try this recipe:

Its a great treat after a snowman is built and snow balls thrown ice is stomped on and cold children are looking for hot chocolate. And for their parents who are warmed through and through that today even though we were hibernating was a bright day!
