drawing challenge / breakfast

 My daughter loves to hear this breakfast story.

Many moons ago when I was young, single, and poor, I would drive 30 minutes everyday to the flower shop where I worked.  I wasn't a morning person, rarely made myself breakfast at home, and was usually running late for work.  For about a year I had the daily routine of stopping by a quaint Korean owned donut shop just as I left the town I lived in (Ojai, California).  I would pop in, pour myself a cup of Kona coffee, and order a double chocolate donut with nuts, sometimes two.  Heaven, I tell you.  


These days I'm trying to set a better example.


With an array of veggies and frozen fruits, whey protein, a bit of yogurt thrown in our new super duper powerful blender...

Voila!

A delicious and nutritious breakfast.  

Patrice has set a beautiful table for breakfast.  A perfect hostess. 
We're all invited, see you there!

Dear Rachel,

Although I'm not a morning person, and before my two strong coffees in the morning, I'm not communicating very well...I will take this shake every morning...I also love the story...xx.
