A few weeks ago, Eric and I visited my mother and step-father on the Olympic Peninsula. They live in a small quiet town surrounded by salt water, fresh water and a nearby mountain. Their home is on 5 wooded acres, and during a break in the rain, we were able to take a hike through the property.
It was a cold foggy morning, and I spotted a mushroom colony in the yard.
And here are some things we spotted on our hike.
I've always had a thing for moss-covered trees...
A single huckleberry.
Some mushrooms growing from a tree stump.
It was a perfect, restful weekend, and I look forward to returning next week to celebrate Christmas.
This will prove to be a busy weekend full of my work holiday party, a birthday party and another holiday party. On top of that, our little startup is being featured on the Today show tomorrow, and we're expecting an extremely busy day that will begin at 4:00 am. It's going to be really exciting, but I think I'll probably end up collapsing by Sunday.
With that, I think I'm off to bed to prepare for the early morning. I hope you all have a wonderful, and most importantly, relaxing weekend.
