So first...I was knitting on Anna's owl beret. Here was the progress:
Mead Public Library is gorgeous. We were happy to see Appleton isn't the only library with meters (Although, instead of the 20 minutes a quarter gets you in Appleton, in Sheboygan it gets you 50 minutes).
They have this awesome restored cigarette machine converted to dispense tiny works of art for $5. It's called the Art-O-Mat. How cool is that??
So I pulled a box from "One Word Wonders" and got some Joy.
There library there is beautiful--3 stories, lots of room for teens (2 dedicated rooms, actually), big Children's Dept on the 3rd floor, giant quiet room. Just an all around great library.
So, after our library tour, we went to the hotel. It really wasn't anything to write home about (We were the only people there...), but they did have a fireplace. And Brian did bring wine:
I started a tradition of my own--with green Midori Sours:
|How are birds supposed to eat with all this snow going on??|
And today...I finished Anna's hat. I don't think she likes it much, especially when she found out it's a slouchy beret. But I think it's cute.
