School, Schooners & Shopping...

Howdy friends! Well, we all made it through our first "official" week of school, and I am happy to report that we're still in one piece. The 5:50am alarm clock/6:40 school bus is a killer, but we're managing.

I had to teach Saturday morning at our northern Traverse city campus and brought the family along for a quick overnight trip. We always look forward to our favorite brewery for its infamous Gorgonzola Ale Dip. Picture Italian bleu cheese blended with cream cheese, dried cherries, toasted pecans and beer. Yummy!

The Schooner Festival is currently going on and despite the chilly temperatures, the schooners were amazing to look at.

Of course no trip to Traverse city is ever complete without conducting a bit of shopping. I found this light fixture at an antique mall. It's going to end up in my craft room over my reading chair once Chris has time to rewire it.

Several Halloween owls also managed to come home with me.

Hope you're having a splendid weekend.
I just need mine to slow down a bit.

I am sorry that we missed the schooners today. We were so close but the football game was calling...
Glad you found so many wonderful things. You inspire me!
