5 more sleeps til my beans come up for a WEEK! 💤💤💤💤💤 Everyone stay safe and have a good week! 😷 Love to all! ♥️

Got back from Hayward to find these beauties waiting for us! I never eat hot house tomatoes, but love, love them right off the vine, grown in fresh sunshine! 😋
Kasia this is for you! 😘
Found Andy’s Meats in the little town of Endeavor WI
More Joan “spread”

We took a drive in the deep farmland. So green and lush… It was beautiful! Farm houses on the horizon. I am so intrigued by the whole farming industry…
The county roads we were on were literally cut through acres of corn and soy (?) We drove for miles like this!!

A great day on Lake Namakagon with old friends Cindy and George ♥️

We had lunch outside at the Loon Saloon and yapped a little with a couple on the dock. On the way back, we found them in the middle of the lake attempting to row back to their cabin because their motor konked out. We towed them back. He had a Cubs hat on or we would have left them out there 😂😂

Ahhhhh the Northwoods – Hayward Wisconsin! The Wisconsin of my yoot and vacation spot up til we moved to Florida. Also the original planned retirement spot. It makes my heart smile to be back! 🥰

As kids, we knew when we made the turn onto A at Dow’s Corner we were almost to the cabin!
Dow’s is a bar now and owner Ken is an Elvis fanatic like Steve…. he gave us a preview of the song he’s doing at his upcoming “Elvis night”

Wow August! SoFlo heading into the big storm months and us in Wisconsin are ordered to wear a mask at all times when out! After a day of decompression from company last week, we got ready for a trip up north to Hayward and the UP. Stay safe! 😷 Love to all ♥️

The seaweed mower. Not sure what the actual name of the implement is 🤷‍♀️

The wildflowers are all over now
I have often wondered if the fields of sunflowers have some purpose other than just being beautiful
Raining on the cow parade
We buy farm fresh anything when we’re out exploring. And you rarely see people. Just drop your money in a coffee can….
If you ever see a farm stand selling “ground cherries” – buy them. Described as a little pearl in a paper lantern that tastes like a cherry tomato infused with mango and pineapple. Absolutely delicious! 😋
I’ve seen more wild turkeys wandering around in the last few months than I have seen in my entire life …
Eagle
Was trying to get this guy and he posed perfectly
A mom isn’t supposed to have favorites…..🥰
Went out for dinner before hitting the road and had crazy good craft old fashioneds

We love riding these back roads through farm country
A church and a cemetery. Score.
Nobody says you have to keep your woodpile neatly stacked behind the house
Or your garbage pile
There’s these two gravestones all by themselves on a corner in the middle of nowhere. Every time we pass it I think about stopping and checking them out. I am intrigued.
It’s a fake person! Creepy.
Stopped at the American Legion right as Jeanna opened so we could be socially distant.
I love a shorty with my bloody
If you never had Dot’s pretzels – definitely try them! Here they’re all over. We discovered them at the flea market in AZ – the only place out there that had them.
