Introduction to Door County

What a great weekend! We went to door county w/ our very good friends, the Augusts. Despite the rain, we have a really good time! From wandering the small towns, to watching the water, to dining, to festivals. A fun introduction to the peninsula…




A great time… From beginning to end… Good friends. Adventures. Fun. What more could you want….? Seriously…..?!

January Adventure

Started off with getting to work this morning @ 5am, cst. Too early for most normal people to be up and ‘at ’em’, but, that way I’m home to still have the whole day yet. Getting ready to torture ourselves @ the gym. Haven’t been there in a week. The weather and work get in the way, sometimes.Then, this afternoon, we are headed off to Madison Wi with my sister for dinner, @ Bluephies, , our favorie Madison restaurant.In the evening, Maggie and Jeannine are going to the Overture Center to see psychic Lisa Williams. I’m going to be across the street @ a coffee shop w/ my macbook, downing excellent latte’s.  Should be an interesting evening. One must liven up January…

Yeah, another great weekend

well, here it is, past time for some of us to be in bed. After all, it’s a school night.  We had a great weekend. We went to a party @ our friends Rise’ & Pierce’s house.  Rise’s son Jordan, and his wife Peggy, mainly, Peggy, had a baby girl a couple weeks ago. The party was so we could meet Allie Rose, and share in Rise’s happiness.   Cute little girl, and nice party.
Saturday morning, bright and early, we picked up our friends, Mollie & Bill, and off we went to the farmers market in Madison. One of the best in the country. Yes, you’ve read about it here before.  Can’t beat it.  Fruits, veggies, cheese, baked goods, and every one, a photo op before becoming a gastronomic adventure. Finished that, and off to the Wollersheim winery, about half an hour from Madison.  Never liked wine that much ’til we went there a couple years ago.  Good stuff. Back to Madison, after buying a case of wine, and sharing a bottle on the balcony.  Oh, for a hammock and an nap then.
  We had lunch @ Bluphies, our favorite restaurant in Madison.  Rockford needs a restaurant of that caliber & under stated atmosphere.  Good food, well prepared, with an ever changing menu. They always are on their toes, as far as the food.  A quick Starbucks, so we wouldn’t fall asleep on the way home, and back to Rockford, with a quiet night ahead.
First thing on Sunday, yardwork.  Pullin’ weeds, waterin’, clippin’, oh boy.  Off for errands, a bit ‘o breakfast, and then back home to work on our set list for our 15 minutes of fame next weekend @ the Willow folk fest.  That’ll be another big adventure.  If you want to see it, you can also go to & search for magtimmag.  Good stuff.
Now, on to bed, and start the week all over.  Still hard to believe that a couple weeks ago, we were wandering around Ireland.  Sigh. . . .
