Exploration

I focused on my projects, and cut and sewed and cut and sewed. I made mittens. EIGHTEEN PAIR! That's 34 mittens !!! All different. The pairs coordinate but do not match. Like these mittens, that I made back in February, the new ones are cut from recycled wool sweaters. Better to make something useful than to end up in the landfill.
Too lazy to arrange them for a photo, they are going to Loose Ends tomorrow in a laundry basket. For sale , $20 a pair.
Today is Monday, my afternoon with Emili. As a treat, we stopped at Widmers Cheese in Theresa. Check out the website,,,,,,, a nice site done by my landlord, Aaron from SunAnt Technologies.
Many of you knitters have asked me "Just what does that guy in the back offices do?" , this is what he does.

Here is Emmi at the cheese shop. Something about the smell at the shop reminds me of my childhood and the farm, it must be all that milk. We had a good time, and bought mild brick, brie and string cheese.

Emili has decided that we should "explore Theresa" on Monday afternooons after school. So far, she has been to the candy shop and the cheese place, I hope Theresa does not dissapoint. It is a mighty small town! There is always the library.

History of the Village
Theresa is located in the rolling hills of northeast Dodge County, The small community was founded by a French trader named Solomon Juneau. His original home now stands on a hill overlooking the village and the west fork of the Rock River. Solomon Juneau also founded the city of Milwaukee and was its first mayor and postmaster.
About 10 miles west of Theresa is the famous Horicon Marsh. East of Theresa is the smaller Theresa Marsh and a short drive farther takes you to the beautiful northern Kettle Moraine State Forest area.
