I'll forego to the bathroom details... for now. That was Sunday's activity and it's enough that I could flush by the end of the day... and no one was hurt. Hopefully, today's sink installation will go smoothly.
I had Friday off and headed south and a little bit west.
There was a stop at Pendarvis - A Wisconsin Historic Site in Mineral Point, WI, along the way. I've been there before -- for a weekend with all my sisters a few years ago to celebrate my 50th birthday -- but we did not tour the site (there were so many other things on our list!).
There was a quick and photo-less stop to stretch legs in the Galena Historic District. Naturally, while walking, I found a yarn store -- Fiber Wild -- and a fine yarn store it was! I would love to visit Galena again, and for longer.
There was a stop at the Home Ec Workshop in Iowa City, IA, where a definite color theme to the weekend emerged.
These items will combine to become a project bag using Kirsten Kapur's free pattern, Dante's Purse.
The drive was beautiful, both there and back. I saw parts of Wisconsin, Illinois, and Iowa that I've never seen before. I've been enchanted by Iowa since my first time driving through and that has not changed. My grandmother was born there (Mason City), and some great greats and great great greats buried there (Brooklyn and Belle Plaine). I'll be back there again, too.
