I played hooky from school yesterday. 🙂
My husband surprised me on Thursday night with the news that he had to take off for the eastern part of the state in the morning to pick up some parts for work.
And he asked me to go along.
I think I actually squealed! An entire day with my husband! Whee!
Even the 6:00 AM departure didn’t lessen my excitement – it just meant sharing an amazing sunrise with him as we traveled east.
I didn’t even mind the almost 2 hour wait while Jan had the parts cut and loaded. I got to sit in the quiet van and read. What a treat!
While our kids were home eating left-overs for lunch – we were sitting on a park bench by the river shared a sub sandwich and soaking up the sunshine.
Things just got better and better!
Our first stop of the afternoon was at the famous Dutchman’s Store in Cantril. Think an Amish Wal-Mart. It takes almost an entire city-block and sells everything from food to quilting supplies. It’s like our little Amish store on steroids.
My favorite purchase was the carton of fresh chocolate/peanut butter. We ate it by the spoonful all afternoon!
Our next stop was the Milton Dairy where we had to sample every variety before finally choosing a package of tomato/garlic cheese curds.
We stopped at several thrift stores before heading back west as the sun was setting.
The weather was perfect.
The autumn landscape beautiful.
The company ideal.
Jan said it was the best day of work he’s had all week.
Yeah, me too! 🙂
