Glorious weather today. I swear I could smell Pilot Mountain on the breeze.
It was a day for long bike rides and rock hunting, two of my children's favorite things to do. And now when I stand at the sink washing dishes, I have Mica winking from the windowsill in front of me.
(Mica is common here, but today's finds were the best ones to date in our household. )

Little known fact: Formica was originally created as a substitute for Mica.
