Snow Goose Produce

I try to make my morning post, in general, something inspirational. I like to share something that will get your day off to the right start. Although I'm taking a break from the norm this week, I will say that I find today's post inspirational. It's not  quite the same kind of inspiration as I get from gazing into the Hoh Rainforest or reading my Bible, but it's good stuff. Let me introduce Snow Goose Produce.

If you love road side stands, farmers markets, and ice cream cones the size of your head (well, almost), you've just found a reason to head north of Seattle and into the farmland of rural Washington!
Wow! 1,000 feet above sea level! This is really only funny to those of us who live a mile high. 
I LOVE IT!


A true claim to fame: "immodest ice cream cones!" We saw several groups of precious old ladies come through the line. When you know you're getting on in years, why wouldn't you indulge in a 2,000 calorie treat?
I love when things are old because they are actually old, not just because it's cool to look old. Case in point, the hanging scale above.







It's not surprising that this little stand has their own brand of jams and jellies. Just take a look at the farmland pictured below...right across the street.

















You are not going home empty handed when you see victuals like these sitting in arms reach! Morels, freshly baked breads, organic herbs... it was a little closer to heaven here, I'm telling you!













And the piece de resistance: Dungeness crab, right out of the bay (remember Sequim and the Dungeness Bay from earlier this week?).
See? They're waving to you saying, "Take me home and eat me!"

Oh wait! You're not actually there. Oops... Sorry. But that's why you have to go! You can get one already cooked like these little fellas or...











pick out your favorites from the tank. That's what we did. So come back later for "how to kill a crab" (it's not gonna stick the knife in itself gals) and a true Pacific Northwest recipe for how to eat your buttery and delicious crustacean.

Give Thanks: Part 4

KEEP READING FOR A GREAT SCENTSY GIVEAWAY! There is so much to be thankful for, it really is hard to decide what will make these next few posts... but today is an ode to my husband. If there is one thing he loves, it's great smells. Although great smells come from great cooking, they also come from great candles. Now with kids around candles can feel a little risky, but then came Scentsy . This is a "flameless" candle which is actually kind of a throw back to the scented wax warmers that used a candle. No candles here, just plug in the warmer and the small light bulb does all the work. I'm a fan of the nightlight sized warmers, but the larger Scentsy warmers are quite lovely. Browse the entire Holiday Collection to find the one perfect for your home or start thinking about gift giving - the combinations are endless! And look at this festive warmer of the month (10% off): But now we need to talk about fragrance! Silver Bells is the fragrance of the month (als

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic. "Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration." Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you. 16  Preserve me, O God, for in you I  take refuge. 2  I say to the  Lord , “You are my Lord;      I have no good apart from you.” 3  As for  the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,      in whom is all my delight. 4  The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;      their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out      or  take their names on my lips. 5  The  Lord  is  my chosen portion and my  cup;      you hold my  lot. 6  The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;      indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7  I bless the  Lord  who  gives me counsel;      in  the night also my  heart instructs me. 8  I have  set the  Lord  always before me;      because he is at my  right hand, I shall not be  shaken. 9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my  whole being rejoices;      my
