Morning Meanderings from the North Shore
Good morning. I am meandering this morning in Finland Minnesota. Elmo, my trusty sidekick and loyal shih-tzu and I traveled to the cabin yesterday. Between the traffic and the road work, the usual 3 hour trip took close to over 4 hours. There was a time in Two Harbors where we just sat in single lane traffic in park for about 25 minutes.
Have I mentioned lately how much I appreciate audio?
The cabin area itself is still internet free. This morning I decided I would prep the meandering from the cabin and then drive into town and find a nice little coffee shop where I will complete this post as well as my afternoon post – my review of The Color Purple by Alice Walker. Up to this reading, I have never read or seen the movie The Color Purple – now I can see if I can find the movie.
My goal for my short stint to the cabin was to get some cleaning done and some reading. Last night I completes washing the sheets and towels, and cleaning the two guest rooms. I also completed two books and I am thrilled that I have made such progress.
Today I will clean out the cupboards, wash all the dishes (don’t panic – there is not that many!), dust, wipe down counters, sweep, mop, and vac. I should have drought my cd player so I could listen to audio while I did most of this but that will be a note to do this in the future.
I am heading back home early afternoon to have dinner with my hubby, maybe a movie, and then tomorrow we move my son to Mankato in prep for college. Life…. is never dull.
