It was a morning where I rushed out of the house, eating breakfast while driving & electing to not get the take-out cup of tea I really wanted so that I wouldn't miss my meeting.
I was tired and groggy (and, not insignificantly, tea-less) when I ventured solo into the forest. And I got wet to mid-calf from the slushy snow and the water dripping from the aspens, my poor boots soaked through...
But none of it mattered. It was the forest, which, again, I have been neglecting. And I found mushrooms, some half-covered with snow, some entirely exposed.
In a word: Huzzah!
