Tim came home for a quick visit this past weekend and we grilled Friday night. I love this photo I captured of father and son on the patio. They look deep in conversation, though quite relaxed.
After dinner, we played Rummy. Clementine loves to get up on the table in the middle of the action when we're playing games (yes, I disinfect my table a lot!) but I think our game was a little boring to her.
Back on the patio Saturday morning for coffee (me) and tea (Brian), until...
Brian said, "Let's get the heck out of here" ~ and we went up to Milwaukee and Cedarburg, Wisconsin. It was cool and rainy, but sometimes the road just calls.
We didn't have a lot of time to explore many stores since this wasn't a planned trip and we left a little late, but we did get to eat a late lunch at one of our favorite mexican restaurants in Milwaukee. We walked around the famous Glorioso's Deli, but didn't buy anything. You know you're in Wisconsin when you see bags of cheese curds!
Stopped in an independent coffee shop for a cuppa tea to warm up...love places like this with so much character and charm.
Local artwork is always hanging on the walls. These paintings were incredible.
We then headed another 20 minutes north to the small, delightful town of Cedarburg. We basically walked up and down the streets just to get some exercise and fresh air; only stopped in a couple of shops to look around.
I suppose it's no surprise that I stopped to take photos of all the beautiful flowers. Overflowing planters are in front of just about every store.
This peony really caught my eye because of the delicate hot pink edging in the middle of the flower. So random, yet so perfect.
How simple and clever is this idea for extra seating on a patio? It's just stacked pallets with cushions on top.
All too soon, it was time to head back home, but yet I was ready.
