Enough of that. I ate some gift chocolate today--the absurdly delicious candy bar I referenced in my pre-weekend post. It had bits of almonds and just a hint of cinnamon. It was like an instant shot of bliss. Where was I going with this? Oh, I honestly have no idea. The chocolate was good--that's my point.
|Mom baked these cookies for Valentine's Day. Hearts and planes?|
|We tromped around the pasture for a bit, while the horses |
looked at us like, What the F are you doing?
|Lots of ferns growing on trees.|
|Lots of sweet little fungi.|
|Lots of Pileated Woodpeckers hard at work.|
|Lots of tiny cones.|
|Lots of semi-mangy mushrooms. Mom found these hiding under a fallen tree (those woodpeckers again).|
|One baby black bear cub in a box.|
|One Second Christmas succulent terrarium coming home with me.|
|And bunches and bunches of wind turbines on the drive home. I know the complaints: that wind turbines kill birds, obstruct scenic vistas, and make a weird noise that people hate, but I still think they're kind of beautiful.|
