Got the winter blues???

January is safely behind us here in the Northland. But that doesn't mean winter is over, not by a long shot! We still have a few more months of snowy, cold weather ahead of us. On the positive side, we're gaining more daylight every day. But it's still dark when we get up and dark when we get home. Some of us escape to warm climates and sunny beaches for a week or two, but not all of us are that lucky. I came across a great little video on youtube that might put you in a warm weather frame of mind. Kick back, plug in your light box, grab a pina colada and give this a listen. I can almost hear the waves gently lapping on that sandy beach right now ...
P.S. - Be sure to click on youtube!
- 1 1/2 oz light rum
- 4 oz pineapple juice
- 2 oz coconut cream
- 1 cup crushed ice
Cherry and pineapple chunk
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with fruits. Enjoy!


  1. Those Muppets sure cover a lot of songs! What talent!

  2. Gotta love Kermie! :)

    Funny you mention this, we just picked up limes for Barbados style rum punch in honor of all the snow. :)
