Random Mountain Musings
You would think I could make more blog posts with all the little unusual happenings in my mountain existence. I have been so busy, yet find time to be very lazy also. I’m reading two books. Manor of Death, a fun book about a ghost, a murder and interior decorating! By Leslie Caine, see here. She has lots of books that are light reading and fun. I am also reading, French Women Don’t Get Facelifts: The Secret of Aging With Style by Mireille Guiliano, see here. It is a very fun read.
I know you should never mess with the wild but we went to a barbecue last weekend and our friends have a fox that visits them on their back deck every time they have a barbecue and I am guessing anytime they eat outside. It is a very cute little female and it was so hard to resist when I was asked if I wanted to let her take an egg off my lap.
Last Saturday we decided to smoke ribs, make spicy coleslaw and our favorite chocolate cake. It always turns out a little ugly but my sweet husband eats the caved in part first to make it look so much better. He takes a hit for the team!
Today I spent two hours finding these! It is early yet and morels are small. But over the next week or so I should hit the pot of gold. I put on my old clothes and head out to where tried and true each year we find them. Toss them in a little flour and fry in a little olive oil and you have a taste that is rare and should never be passed up.
These tops are by Gretty Zueger see here. I have bought a few in different colors over time from the cutest shop called Mountain Monkey Business, website here. It is a small boutique full to bursting with unique fashion and jewelry and more. If I had a shop I would want it to be just like this one. It has been in McCall for many years and I am sure is a favorite of locals and vacationers alike.
Lastly, meet Tory! I love this bag so much that I named her after her designer. The color makes me smile and think of my hometown fair in September. Its called New Carnival.
Thanks for stopping by!
