I never liked mushrooms or eating them. When I was little, I was scared to even touch them. It wasn't till last summer I really looked at them and found them to be actually very intricate. A beauty to them. I love the taste of them in food, but can't eat a whole raw or cooked mushroom, I think it's the texture I don't like. And what an assortment of colors and sizes they come in. My mind also went to a post I did last week about two guys living off the grid. While that may have been extreme... the homes here are more what I'm talking about kids. That second one down is what I'd call home dearies...but I'd gladly live in any of them. Ahhhh..... a boy can dream, can't he?

This was one of those weekends where I remember why I like them so much. After a very nice lie in, I enjoyed my morning coffee and full-on breakfast right by my windows. I get asked if while I'm gone do all my bird stay around? Well, as soon as I return home whether a week or two weeks, within an hour or so of seed going on the sill and in the feeder, it's a full-on feeding frenzy. But this weekend was a gleeful moment as I, after all these years finally got Bluebirds! And they even landed on the sill. They generally tend to saty up by the lake, so I was overjoyed to see them. I counted six at one point.

About a year ago I became infatuated with watching a You Tube show, Tyler and Todd and have yet missed an episode, which they generally do every Sunday. Tyler and Todd Gibbon-Thorne met online at the ripe young age in 12th grade online, and have been together ever since, through college and beyond. They were the young married couple, had great jobs, and lived in a four-bedroom house in Alberta Canada, where they were accepted and supported by their friends and family. Come 2019 they ditched it all to hit the road in a 1996 recreational vehicle that they bought for $7,000. And lived they have since. Their initial show surrounded their travels in the vehicle and their camping exploits with their two dogs Charlie and Eddie...and then when COVID hit, their current project -building a home on ten acres in the wildness of Nova Scotia came about as they decided to live completely off the grid. I was so jealous. The series is beyond fascinating, as we see the candid ups and downs and definitely huge learning challenges they can go through and meet head on with in a weeks' time.
