Weekly Ephemera #38

  • On Tuesday I took Mom out for lunch and errands while the Wife cleaned her house.  I kept the Wife's "I haven't cleaned a toilet" streak going by cleaning Mom's bathroom when we got back.
  • Frank Lloyd Wright statue in the park.

    On Thursday, after my dental checkup (all good) the Wife and I drove to Mason City, Iowa where we met the MoH and BM.  We spent the evening and most of the next morning talking about our respective trips (they went to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Germany), the Wife's family chatter, and generally catching up with the news.

    The next morning we woke up to four inches (ten centimeters) of snow.  This was the first real snow I've experienced this winter so far and it was beautiful.  I had my phone and camera and didn't manage to take pictures.  Fortunately the Wife did.

    In Mason City we stayed at the craftsman style Historic Park Inn, the last standing hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.  It was a beautifully built and furnished hotel.
  • I walked twice this week for a total of 16 miles (25.8 km).  I was planning to walk longer but just couldn't do it.  Not sure if the issue is in my body (and age) or my mind.  I suspect it is more a mental issue.
