January typically signals trying new things, but in the depths of winter, finding motivation can be tough.  Here at Sweetcicle's, we get inspiration with a change of seasons, and in the spring, when the world awakens, it seems ample time to try something new, or dust off and pick up an old hobby.  As the days grow longer and the world sprouts to life, it feels like a great time to refocus energies.  We are working on some new and exciting flavors for summer, so stay tuned.  There are a few other things our staff sets their free time pursuits on:

*Cultivating home improvement projects (well, more accurately watching This Old House and dreaming about how to improve a fictional victorian home).

*Pruning the spring reading list to the essentials, whatever they may be.

*Learning about plants (like the amazing Scottish Blue Thistle, one thistle is capable of producing 120K seeds).

Tending to friendships (our Chief Morale Officer is kind of obsessed).

*Growing a love of something that originally felt painful, like jogging, (it helps to run on a scenic route and also power up with Soft Chews).

Even misty spring days along the Hudson River are beautiful.
