It is now officially FREEZING in Iowa. We’re getting a nice winter mix outside with not much accumulating except for ice. Our front porch is slicker then snot. Cooper spent the morning with his Dad while I went down to the Amish furniture store looking for a bed. I am oddly intrigued by the Amish people. There are several Amish communities around Ottumwa. When you drive in to town it’s like going back in time. There are horses and buggies driving down the road and hitched all over town. There are little kids playing outside in bonnets and long black coats (even today when it was 16*). It’s really a totally different world just a few miles from the one I live in. I was thinking today I really need to take my camera out there. The furniture in their store is unbelievable. Everything is perfect… like from the highest end furniture store you’ve ever been in. There are very plain pieces, and some of the most intricate beautiful pieces you’ve ever seen. Of course…. nothing matched the furniture I was trying to match… but it was a good trip anyway.
I know I haven’t posted pictures all week (sorry Grandmas). I’ve been working on some pics that I’m behind on. I’ll hopefully shoot some of Cooper tomorrow to post.
