As I pulled into my garage I thought, “This really IS feeling like home!”
In NJ we’d had almost 10 years in our home, raised 2 kids from babies (one was born while we lived there) and we had a LOT of history in the house.
This is still new. But it feels good.
I’m home, I had a LOVELY time, Ruth of Knitters Treat (Knitters Treat, PO Box 544, Monticello, WI 53570-0544) is a lovely hostess and if you live near Monticello, Madison, or any Wisconsin town near there you should get in touch with her and get on her email list for future teachers.
Aside from the gracious hostessing, the FOOD is absolutely AMAZING! I had two of the best lunches I’ve ever had in the past 2 days – just enough food, not a killer load, and so well balanced for texture and taste. Lovely! And a lesser soul than I might just possibly do real damage for a piece of that amazing chocolate raspberry cake. Fudge. Yum.
I drove home – Wisconsin is really quite beautiful! It makes me think of a slightly wilder Ohio (perhaps even a mix of Ohio and WV but with less folks) and stopped at TJ Maxx on the way home to pick up some clothing basics.
A few nice white shirts, a nice, black knit tank top, and a pair of heels that are loafer styled and actually COMFORTABLE! I usually hate heels, I never buy them, but I want to have a pair for the audition next week (!) and these felt SO good – and looked good, too. I love Aerosoles.
So now I’m off to bed – tomorrow is errand running and preparing for Cleveland. Thurs/Fri/Sat & Sun are Cleveland, then home on Sunday night.
Monday a day of driving to Chicago, then PRW audition on Tues, and home on Wed.
And then I’m home for a sustained period… Yahoo!
