Until I can get outside, I guess I'll pass the time doing some Spring cleaning amazes me how much clutter accumulates over the winter months!!!  To keep my energy up while I'm working so hard, I think I'll make batch of homemade's wonderful by itself, as a cereal with some skim milk or mix it into Greek vanilla yogurt and you've got a great breakfast or snack!!!  Hope you'll give it a try!!!
