A Thursday in and Around Bemidji  
Today was a good day. I slept in and then had a malt waffle with skyr and pomegranate-cranberry juice before heading out on my adventures. I went to the Bemidji Woolen Mills to pet the sheepy goodness. However, I was very, very strong and did not buy anything, remembering that I still have not touched the roving from the last time I was in Bemidji. I poked my nose into a few other stores but soon hit the road. I drove about 45 minutes from Bemidji to Itasca Lake to see the Mississippi Headwaters. It was overcast, but not as cold as it has been. (Oh dear lord has this been a cold trip - even my trusty red lumberjack waffle pjs have not saved me.) The Headwaters were relatively deserted when I got there, but after about an hour, I was cold and the park was invaded by a swarm of elderly folk so I headed back,

On the way back, I stopped at another fiber shop (where my restraint failed), a roadside crap store (where I got a lot of weird jams, like Juneberry), and a bead/stained glass shop (where I acquired some silver spacer beads). Lunch was at the Wild Hare, which had an amazing chicken salad sandwich. I'm good for the local economy. :P I went back to the hotel for a nap, then worked on prepping my class for Saturday and read a book. Dinner was at Brigid's Cross - the Shepherd's Pie was tasty, but a little odd (tomatoes? really?). Now there has been more reading and further attempts at getting caught up on email... someday I'll get to the bottom of the inbox!
