I love Wisconsin! Our flight was
We have done very little in terms of sight-seeing, which I think is wonderful. We have been walking in town and down to the rain swollen creek, which is a short walk, since the water reaches the shed. We missed the parched summer and we missed the flooding rains, and we came in time for mosquitos. Too bad about mosquitos, but everything else is grand, like watching Maria and her cousin Jordan play restaurant together, and seeing another of Grandma Nancy's amazing Impressionist quilts in progress. Everyone is well and treating us to homecooked meals and family news, history too. Do you know what a hair wreath is? I am going to invite Phil or Carol to submit a guest post on Chickenblog about John Brown and the Secret 6!
A new storm is blowing in. The sky is dark and I hear thunder. I know everyone here has had their fill of rainstorms, but for us a storm would be a treat. Thunder and lightning are so rare where we come from... (except for our furry animals, I hardly remember Garage Mahal... we should just buy the house down the street and send for our stuff.)
How frazzled was I when we left? Well, I hope you haven't tried calling us, here or at home. I packed our house phone!! And I left my cell phone charger in California. Great, big, huge DUH. Vacation came just in time, but I am afraid it will end too soon. We hope we can picnic today, after the storm, and we want to go to Madison, maybe Mineral Point. We may see Sophie play in the band at Friday's high school football game.
ooooh... more thunder! closer! I love the way it makes me shudder.
Time to go out to the porch and watch the rain. Then we are off to the Piggly Wiggly, maybe to The Quilt Shop...
