Some friends took us mushroom hunting the other evening. They taught us how to identify the chanterelles and where to find them. It was actually a lot of fun. We picked a bunch of them. It made me feel like we're really "living off the land". And just the other day we picked 2 buckets of wild blueberries and stored them in the freezer for those cold winter weekends. We've turned into real foragers!
I've also started sprouting on my windowsil. This is a very rewarding hobby. Just a tablespoon of alfalfa seeds and 5 days later you get a ton of sprouty goodness!
And Friday we left the north and started the 1450km trip back to Montreal. It's a long drive and requires a lot of coffee, but it certainly is beautiful.
We have two weeks off now, and we'll be spending the next five days in Portland, Oregon.
Busy, busy... but I guess that's the way we like it!
I wish you a fabulous weekend.
