Melrose, Iowa

I spent this past weekend with my dad in  Iowa.  We visited my grandparents at their new retirement village, stopped by a little diner in Des Moines, and spent a morning gossiping with my grandma and aunt over hot apple cider. We also puttered around in the woods in Melrose near my folks’ farm.  I saw this ladybug there when she landed on my leg.

God willing, that’s the only picture of my thigh that will ever appear on the internet.

Back to the kitchen tomorrow.  Tonight is devoted to unpacking and restoring order to my laundry basket.

  1. I love this picture– I never knew ladybugs could be that color.
    Glad you got some time to see your family!
