|I am spending the day in Cedar Rapids with my young friend Anne...|
I call Anne "my young friend Anne"...and, obviously, she will always be that.
|Anne humors my penchant for thrift store shopping...|
|This is a t-shirt treasure I found during one of our last adventures...|
|I'm pretty sure she passed on these pants, tho|
Our plan is to spend the day touring Grant Wood's old stomping grounds...and I COULD NOT BE MORE DELIGHTED...
|This painting is one of many at the Grant Wood Studio in Cedar Rapids. It is called "Woman with Plants". I can't wait to see it up close and personal....Doesn't that look like a Mary Mulari apron??|
Because it's a long ride to Cedar Rapids -- I invited my friend Sue to join me. Although, she doesn't know where we're going or what we're doing...
SUE NEEDS AN ADVENTURE....
|Sue is not "spontaneous". I called her well in advance so she could clear the day on her calendar. (I was competing with things like window washing, and starching of dresser scarves)...|
It is shaping up to be a beautiful FALL here in the Midwest. I love the changing of the seasons -- and Fall has always been my favorite...the color of the trees, the brisk air. yep. PERFECT TIME FOR A ROAD TRIP...!!!
