We finally had some sun this weekend, as well as a house guest! Ad’s dad drove all the way from PA to visit us, so we took him around Madison and did all the fun stuff that we never do because we live here. I don’t know why it is, but we never seem to do interesting things in the places we live until a guest from out of town comes. We went to a free art museum on campus, saw a free movie on campus (go see Argo if you haven’t), and had lots of yummy meals out (including food from Afghanistan).
We gave Ad’s dad a walking tour of the campus…
We also went to the Mustard Museum!
Mmmm vintage mustard.
For those of you who don’t know, I really hate mustard. Hate it. Can’t even stand the smell of it. I’m standing in front of a cabinet full of vintage mustard beauty supplies and medicines. One of the tins says “Mustard Bath” and clearly I was saddened by this.
Before Ad’s dad left today, we took a morning walk at Picnic Point, and stood on frozen Lake Mendota.
Picnic Point is a long thin strip of land that juts out into the lake. About midway across the point is a Native American burial mound. The spot is beautiful and you can see why it was chosen as a place for something so meaningful.
And here I am, looking vaguely normal and sporting my new sausage-esque coat. Clearly I chose warmth over style.
Hope your weekend was just as fun!
