Karl and I went to town today, and we bought groceries and a plant at Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly. We saw a few people we know. We had many years of travel and family care. Grateful to be here, with loving memories.

We were at Menards in Sheboygan. We bought a lily that is just beginning to bloom. Now it lives by a window, and I gave it some water. The Christmas poinsettia from Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly is still lovely, and seems to be growing. We will take pictures for the blog on a sunny day, as the lily blooms. Good to bring it home in good shape. All the lilies and other plants looked nice. Some hardy Spring perennials were outside.
This is another photo by Karl from Mauthe Lake in Fond du Lac County yesterday. Still wearing my winter coat and walked outside there a short time! We see a few people on our walks outside. Yesterday, we also saw some people at the park and ash trees that needed to be cut down. Lots of work in progress. New road work too, just beginning.
Early March, and it seems normal that it is very cold today, though warming later this week (we’ll see). Wisconsin winters. Karl and I went to the Oostburg Public Library, and then to Mentink’s Piggly Wiggly. Another year, I bought a winter coat for ten dollars at Bethesda Thrift Store in Sheboygan. The coat is too big, and perfect to wear with winter clothes.

Last winter, Karl and I went to thrift stores in our area. I am happy to see used books for sale in many places. So I have a nice collection and am ready for fall and winter! We have also donated books.
