I managed to get outside today by myself (without the dogs) and hunt for more wild mushrooms. If you get a chance, go to Google images and search for chanterelle mushrooms. They are delicious and grow in woody places where it rains a bit. I understand in California they can be as big as two hand spans!! But the ones here are much smaller. I did find one today the size of my palm. Can't wait to sauté them up and make some mushroom soup! I will freeze most of them (I have two basketfuls now) after I cook them to stock up for the times they aren't growing (like the winter). I wish I could find some morel mushrooms. I could grow them from spores, but they wouldn't be fruitful until next spring (plus I don't want the trouble). I will just rely on God to show me where they are if he wants me to find them.
I love the rain. I remember years ago when we had such a bad drought they were asking us to only flush the toilet once a day (yeah that's right) and everything green except the trees died. I promised God then that I would never again complain about the rain and I never have since. I love to smell it coming, smell and hear it when it rains, love to hear the birds rejoicing after a rain. The only thing that I don't like is I have REALLY bad hair days with such high humidity, lol.
