Today I had a very fun day with my friend Carla. We headed down to a few quaint little towns along the river for lunch and shopping. It was a misty sort of a day, but not cold or windy, so it was quite pleasant.
We had a very tasty lunch at this cute place, and discovered they had Bridgeman's ice cream. Peppermint bon bon no less!!
Then we went shopping in this beautiful town. They were having a diversity fair. The Germans had a booth, as well as the Sons of Norway, we were told. Now that's diversity for ya! We didn't partake.
It was a visit back to my Scandihuvian (the Scandinavian word for Scandinavian) roots (rhymes with "foots") fer sure. They had a sweatshirt that I nearly had to buy. It said, "What part of uffda do you not understand?" HA! It seriously made me want to come home and make some lefse. One of these days I will, and I'll show you this scrumptious stuff. Do not mistake it for anything made out of fish. That would be lutefisk, and there is absolutely no connection between the two. Trust me, I would not be making that stuff. Uffda.
I couldn't resist taking a bunch of pictures of the town. There were huge baskets and containers of petunias everywhere, and I loved the way the rain made the colors even more vivid.
