Nothing Exciting Really...

January 15, 2013

I picked a small town on the map that I thought I'd be able to drive to, and make it back in time to pick up the kid from school. I was just curious to see what lies in that direction. I planned on shooting some feature that defined the town. As I approached I noted the tall steeple. So, while it's not an amazing shot, it'll do for today. Now I know what Highland, WI looks like.

Today I didn't do a lot of shooting. I did drive around the town a bit. There are still a lot of roads I've not gone down. Just south of town I found an interesting little cemetery. I'm not sure the significance of the little bell-house.

We had a quiet day at home. Not a lot to tell, other than it's always nice to just relax, and not do a whole lot. I even got to take a nap! We'll be back to our normal "work on the house" schedule soon. As you can see in the background, there is still a lot to do.

Our "big event" for today was going out for a little coffee and pie. When we first moved to Wisconsin we tried a coffee shop in a nearby town. At that time, we found it charming. It turns out we may have romanticized our experience a bit. This time, though the kid had a great time, we found it cramped, dirty and the service to be very poor. Live and learn.

Freja sure loves pie!
