Loooong fun day with my daughter - and a new sink!!

Yesterday, Miss B and I headed up to Minneapolis for the day, leaving at about 8:00 a.m. I dropped her at the Mall of America and ran across the street to IKEA, where I bought a beautiful apron-front kitchen sink, the Domsjo double-bowl sink. She met me as I was just about finished, we ate a couple of all-beef hot dogs at IKEA and then we loaded the sink into the Concorde and drove west to Crown College, between Waconia and St. Bonifacius, Minnesota, where we watched the first home football game of the season. Her friend N is a freshman and is on the team. He didn't get to play. Maybe they would have won had he been allowed to. We like to think so anyway. They got trounced by Augsburg.

After N got cleaned up, I took the three of us out to dinner in Waconia, at a nice little place called The Green Room. (I thought it was The Green Door, but when I tried to find a website to link for you, I found it is The Green Room.) Then we left him at his dorm and drove home with our sink.

We got home around 11:00-ish last night. It was a great day. I really enjoyed being with Miss B all day.

While we were gone, Barry put new windows in our bedroom! Hurray!

I really like the sink. Wish I could have shopped at Ikea with you; I love that place.
