Also a reminder that my site is sweetlyraw.com now - if you've linked to the ice cream challenge prior to a few days ago, they won't work anymore.
Yesterday morning I received a sweet package from bloggie friend, Nelly! I won a recent goodie giveaway of hers, and have been eagerly anticipating these scrummy delights. Thank you Nelly Bear!
Chocolate, Chocolate Covered Macaroons!
Raw Dessert Platter Extraordinaire - Coconut Macaroons, Choc Macs, Mint Chocolate Cookies, and a Choccie Moonie! (I tried a coconut mac and it was divine!)
Piece de Resistance - Mylk Chocolate Moonie Pie - from the contest! I shared this with my mom today and we loved it! I can't wait to try the other cookies.
I'm now back at home in Canada, and have been enjoying the beautiful, natural surroundings once again. Sunrise a few mornings ago...
On the way home, I passed this moosie, and 7 deer.
But the best thing yet has been a surprise visitor .... Mister Bear has been coming to play a lot lately! I got a video the other day which I'll get around to posting - it was absolutely hilarious. Isn't he adorable?
First, he ripped apart our huge wooden bird feeder, then he attached a ceramic feeder, which he was unable to bite into, but did manage to get some seeds out of. Poor guy, I guess there isn't enough food around this time of year. He's waiting for blueberries just like I am!
After a while we decided it was time for him to leave - but yelling at him, blowing a whistle, and even throwing some small rocks, didn't work (don't worry, not intended to hurt him, just to get him to go). In fact, those tactics forced him up a tree where he stayed for quite a while, and only came down after we stopped nagging him. My dad say's he's about 2 years old.
As I was doing yoga in the living room the next morning, I looked out the glass doors to see him peering in at me! Freaky! I got a pot and wooden spoon and banged so loud it echoed across the lake. Mister bear decided he'd had enough of my racket and took off :) He came and sat on the deck another day... just hanging out.
I hope you're having a great weekend. It's hot and sunny here, so I'll be enjoying yoga and reading on the dock! Results of the ice cream cake contest coming on Tuesday or Wednesday :)
