at the end of last year, i noticed these weird looking things growing in the soil just outside my back door.
i'd never seen anything like them before and they looked totally alien to me but i knew they had to be some type of fungi. so, after some research on Google, i found out that they are called 'morel mushrooms' and this particular type is called 'morchella esculenta'. apparently, these mushrooms are highly prized in the culinary world....who knew?? i'm not sure i would ever eat them as they look freaky to me, however, some people actually go out hunting for them.
i did a quick pencil free sketch in my pocket moleskine watercolour notebook
using black pigment ink pen and watercolour
and look who is 3½ months old now...
it was my birthday on wednesday and i got to spend most of the day with Michelle and Mikayla as it was our regular shopping day. Michelle treated me to a delicious Subway lunch and i also received a free muffin from Muffin Break and a free Boost juice on my frequent customer cards. YAY!
it's hard to describe just how much love i feel for this little munchkin....but it's definitely GIANORMOUS!!!
my heart just swells with love when she's around
