I never thought that I would be accused of being a Sunday Driver. Of course that was in some younger years. Oh well. But hey! It’s great to saunter along in the car taking in all of the beauty that nature has to offer. Stop along the way and see the budding trees. The flowers emerging from the soil. The birds darting from here to there heralding the awakening with their songs of spring. There is so much to see and enjoy. And there are no deadlines today. I’m really can’t apologize for taking my time. This journey from Red Wing, MN to Nelson, WI along the Mississippi River via the Great River Road is worth taking one’s time.
I wonder. Why are there no cars ahead of me? Do those cars behind me think that I should be going faster? Pull over? Go home? Perhaps they do. But it’s not time to go home yet. But pull over? That is a good suggestion. Because there is a host of things to see at this wayside rest. Wonders to enjoy.
And lunch. We did prepare. Sandwiches on that great Sturdiwheat bread. A bit of fruit. Crisp carrots. A glass of wine. Of course the guests of honor are the ants. They are eager about spring too.
This warm spring sunshine shining on our faces as we enjoy the homemade Deli sandwich on Sturdiwheat Dark Caraway Ryebread helps make this day. Oh – – we made the bread. From those wonderful Sturdiwheat bread mixes. And the bonus of the aroma of fresh baking bread is well worth it. Can you do it? I surely think so. Just add water! That’s it! Well, you need to bake it too. www.sturdiwheat.com You will find it there!
Celebrate Spring! It is the season of new life. Smell the freshly baked bread. And enjoy a picnic along the way.
