I had a miserable night last night. I started out with a little headache and I’d hoped that it would go away while I slept. Nope. It was one of those nights where the pain pooled in the crevices and hollows of my skull like liquid acid. Rolling from one side to the other only caused the pain to slosh across fresh, tender brain matter where the acid gnawed its way into the brain and bones on the other side. I got up sometime during the night and took some aspirin and got a warmie for my neck. I should have gotten something to eat while I was up… I know better…. When I have one of those headaches I usually have some kind of blood sugar issue going on. My Grandma used to call them ‘Sick Headaches’. Getting her food and/or sleep schedule thrown off would bring on a ‘Sick Headache’. I lucked out and didn’t have a major headache today too…. just a little off and on ache… hungry and then not hungry. I’ve had worse.
Brian, a fan of architecture, wanted to see some of the Frank Lloyd Wright houses today. I’m not a huge fan of FLW…. actually, I dislike FLW houses….. I think they’re uncomfortable, ugly and overly impressed with themselves… but Brian likes them. I knew that Boo wasn’t welcome on any of the FLW tours so Mom and I agreed that one of us would go with Brian and one would stay in the car with Boo. Since I was tired anyway, I said I’d be happy to stay in the car and Boo and I would read…. maybe take a walk around the grounds. At Wingspread there was supposed to be a walkway out to a lighthouse or something…. it was on their map in the parking lot. Yeah… no… no walking on the grounds. Gods forbid we walk around unchaperoned. Boo and I got sent back to the front parking lot. The lady, very politely, told us if we wanted to walk we could walk back up the driveway. Oooookkaay. Boo and I sat in the car and waited for Mom and Brian to return. Boo and I remain unimpressed with Frank Lloyd Wright and his leaky houses.
After the FLW tour we headed to the historic town of Cedarburg, WI. We’ll be going back again this weekend for their Fall Festival, but I figured that the town would be crowed this weekend and if we wanted to see the shops, we should go during the week. It’s a pretty little town. Lots of old building and interesting shops, but living in the RV has really dampened my shopping abilities for the moment. I don’t have anywhere to store anything that I buy and since the new house isn’t even built, I don’t know where anything would go anyway. I did want to check out Amy’s Candy Kitchen though. I’d read drool worthy reviews of the gourmet candy apples and just had to sample them for myself.
We finished off our tour of Cedarburg with a visit to the last remaining covered bridge in Wisconsin. I’ve got a thing for covered bridges.
We snapped a bunch of photos and then headed back to town for dinner.
After dinner Mom and I ran into Piggly Wiggly for some groceries. It was surprisingly civilized for a place called ‘Piggly Wiggly.’

I love the picture of the stream and the bridge. It may become a painting one day.
Yay! That would be great. I love your paintings.
