Lake Memories

My parents had a cabin at the lake where I spent many wonderful summers as a child.  One of the best memories was my mom making Huckleberry pancakes from the fresh berries we picked – like these that I recently made for my hubby:

My hubby and I still spend our summers at the same lake – Priest Lake, in Northern Idaho but in our little trailer by the lake.  The views are similar:

Our friends we’ve made – extraordinary! ❤

We love nature:

Happy Summer!

The Huckleberry Hound

I had a dog when I was growing up whose name was Mugsy.  Mugsy was a mutt…part German Shepherd, Terrier and who knows?

During the summer, my family and I would often pick wild huckleberries in the mountains.  Well, Mugsy would eat the huckleberries right off the bush!  So he was nicknamed, the Huckleberry Hound!

I don’t know why this memory is surfacing for me now…maybe because adding color to my doodle bowl from yesterday reminded me of it.  I added color with my water-soluble Faber-Castell color pencils:

Can you find the Huckleberries in my doodle?  I know Mugsy could!

Cheers!  🙂
