A Monday Well Spent: Day Tripping in Decorah

I think Monday is as good as any day to post an entry. After all, it is my favorite day of the week!

Don't worry. You read that right. I love Mondays! Why, you ask? Well, it's the day I usually make a trip to Decorah!

I meet up with a few old girlfriends at Burl's for breakfast and coffee. We talk and laugh over some of the best food in town. The seating is cozy, the staff is friendly and they have that all important never-ending cup of coffee. That last one is key for us old birds, after the plates have been cleared we usually still have something to chirp about! I think back on all the years we've known each other. It is good to know that these ladies are a part of my life, and I think heavens for them every day.

Before I head home for the afternoon I have to admit that I take careful time to indulge my sweet tooth. My children worry about my health but when it comes to sweets I just want to tell them to buzz off. I almost always stop at the Whippy Dip when it's open. This old lady will stand in line in today's gloomy weather or even if it's a stifling muggy hot-one. I don't mind, as long as I can enjoy my treats from the comfort of my car (where I control the temperature!).

Today isn't shaping up to be anything too productive outside, so I think I'll let my garden soak up the rain. I might just cozy up with a good mystery and a kitty and let my favorite day slip by. It's the perfect start to what I feel might be a great week. I hope you have a good week too!
