Tonight we are in 76 degree weather, flat, green, watery and leafy Minnesota. We had dinner in a small town diner - no music, no lighting, no college students. It seems that everyone here has worked hard for about 65 - 75 years. The waitress was a high school girl running around doing everything and smiling the whole time. Everything was heavy and greasy and yummy. I would not want to eat like that more than once a year.
Tomorrow morning we drive 45 minutes to pick up our 2 daughters who have been away at camp for 2 weeks. We have had a nice break. It was a good experience for all of us, and I am really looking forward to seeing them and hearing all about it!
