Just add sun...

So there has been this very strange yellow thing in the skies of W. Washington. Legend has it, it is called "the sun". It is very rare in these parts so when it shows its face, Washingtonians go crazy. How crazy?? Long walks, 10 mile bike rides, yard work... stuff like that. So to the 5 of you who read my blog, that is were I have been. Trying to soak up enough vitamin D to last me through the next stretch of gray and wet (which is just always around the corner)

In other non sunshine news... I have discovered a really great recipe for fresh berry pie. Through my adventures on Facebook, I have reconnected with a guy who I went to high school with. Now we knew each other and had a lot of mutual friends, but we never hung out or really talked for that much. He was quite the "horticultural entrepreneur" so our paths never really crossed. Well, these days it seems he has become quite the "foodie" and we enjoy emailing about different recipes. He sent a link for Fresh Blackberry Pie. I usually stay away from fruit pies, because they don't plate due to the fact the filling is runny (a BIG pet peeve of mine) Anyway, I gave it a try and it was a big hit. I sent the pie off to DND for official taste testing and the guys liked it. Best part, it plates. I'm a happy camper. I can't wait for local berries to come into season. I will post the recipe tomorrow.

Well, it supposed to hit 70 today. I've got Lily and we are off to run around town and hopefully get some time to play in the yard. My sweet peas are still unplanted, ugh.

Wishing everyone a sunny Monday.

It must be wonderful to see the sun when living in such a wet place.
I just love it when it actually rains!
