On The Road
Written March 29th:
We're on vacation! We left two days ago, and are currently sitting in Nebraska, watching a train go by, with the faint smell of cows wafting through the open doors. I love seeing the graffiti on trains: it truly is art. Sure, it's illegal, but that takes all sorts of skill to do, and I can definitely appreciate that.
It's hard, being away from my sewing machine! Especially when I'm sitting in the car for hours, with little to do (besides school). I brought a knitting project that I haven't started yet, but I'm afraid I don't have the most patience for knitting, and this is a very challenging project! Luckily, mom is here, and as I've mentioned before, she's crazy good at knitting.
Yesterday we were in South Dakota, so here's a photo from there--the Corn Palace. They've been covering the building with corn cobs since 1892, in these murals. It seemed...well, honestly, it seemed really silly to me, but that's coming from a teenage girl, so think what you like of it. :)
Here's a picture of me, last night, wearing a fantastic pink necklace I bought from a cute little antique shop.
