We were away for the long weekend in NY to see my sister and help her move in to their new home. The ride was long, but we were glad to have been able to go. True to form, SG did not sleep a wink at any moment on either the ride up or back. Sylv caught quite a few zzzz's on the way back.Today we visited G's parents while the cousins were there. The girls enjoyed an hour wading ankle deep in the "branch" that etched out their part of the Hollow over the millennia. Of course, I didn't have a camera . . .
Later today between killings of stink bugs, we tried out the kites that the Easter Bunny brought us in the motel room in NY. Unfortunately, there was no wind. According to G, there is never wind enough here to fly kites. Again, I didn't have a camera.
Now is the time of year that we hunt mountain morel, a wonderful seasonal fungi that scares the bejesus out of my mother . . . G went out a bit earlier and only found a tiny one, which he didn't pick -- thus, I have no picture for you. His mom and aunt have been out a few times while we were gone, and they too only found small ones. We hope this just means a slow start and not a bad season. It was such a wet winter and now the weather is so very warm -- it should be perfect 'shroom conditions!
