Camels Hump from Charlotte, Vermont.
Camels Hump from Charlotte, Vermont.

I love the above view including the pond.  I can’t even imagine having a house with that view to wake up to and to see sun rises or sun sets.  I would say that might be facing east and would have beautiful mornings with the sun coming up over that mountain.  Growing up in Vermont, I can remember when relatives visited from up north, they would say “Well, we better be heading back over the mountain”.  I love it. 🙂 ❤

Last year I was going for a walk on the walking trail that goes along the river.  There was a little island in shallow water with grass growing on it.  All I could see was the light brown and white dot back curved up in the grass.  Then it moved and it was a little fawn.  So cute.

I was looking for Vermont Spring recipes and I saw the above recipe in Vermont Life magazine.  It was Spring greens with charred onions, seasoned ricotta and poached eggs.  Looks like a french recipe to me.  I pinned the recipe on my Pinterest salads board.  Looks like it has asparagus in it also.

Then I saw a neat recipe for Vegan Clementine Cupcakes that has no dairy and no eggs from King Arthur flour.  I pinned the recipe on my King Arthur Flour recipe board.

Dandelion greens are so wonderful in the Spring.  My mom used to simply cook them and serve them with butter, vinegar and salt and pepper.  But I saw a neat recipe for Simple Spring Pasta with dandelion greens.  The recipe calls for a little white wine and parmesan and they said that home made pasta enhances the recipe but they used dry pasta.

Lake Champlain Chocolates, near Burlington has awesome Spring Truffles.  There are 5 different flavors including 70% dark, French Roast, Hazelnut, White Raspberry and Vanilla malt.  Sounds so fancy and a nice treat.

One of my favorite fashion bloggers gave a lot of tips on Spring makeup and she featured the above make up brushes.  They look awesome to me and they are only $16.00 for the whole set at Walmart.

I just went on line and ordered them from the Walmart website.  We have a Super Walmart nearby, but they don’t carry this particular set.

Then that fashion blogger has favorite bloggers and one I really liked was called Rich Life on a Budget.  I liked the post she had where she visited Sonoma Valley Gloria Ferrer Winery for a Bubbles and Bloom event.

They had Champagne for one thing that sounded fun.

Then she bought the above plants.  As soon as Hemingways around here opens for the season, they have all those same plants.  Love the ideas on how to arrange them.

Looks like it was raining there.  I have an umbrella in that same color.  Love the plant arrangements and especially the wheel barrel.

I’m just making a simple salad for lunch with my own dressing that I make in a mason jar and shake it up.  I think I watch too many cook shows and surf the web a little much, but I have fun.

And that’s my thoughts for today……
