On Saturday morning, Brian and I drove through the storms and parked on Shelbyville’s Public Square, which sorry, but it’s actually more of a circle.
We first browsed through Three Sisters Books & Gifts - primarily to see if Brian could access free WiFi on his iPad…he couldn’t. Then we strolled through Shelbyville’s very own art gallery, led by two women from the Shelby Art Guild Association who were both named Rhonda.
Our final destination (before making our usual weekend trip to Home Depot in nearby Greenfield) was the Grover Museum, which was good clean fun for a Rural-Girl Saturday morning adventure. Though we missed it by a week, the Grover has several scheduled Saturdays during which its staff serves patrons FREE rootbeer floats! Talk about Hoosier Hospitality. :)

I caught part of Oprah yesterday. Reporter Lisa Ling took viewers on a tour of a slaughterhouse and meat-packing plant. It was really amazing to my increasingly Rural-Girl self to see/understand how a grazing cow winds up on my plate.

Relatedly, for the past 6 months or so, Brian and I have been following the Weight Watchers program in an effort to become more mindful about our eating habits and lose weight. Consequently, our consumption of fruits and vegetables has skyrocketed. To help buy local and perhaps keep costs down too, I plan to further investigate this delivery service that serves our area: http://www.greenbeandelivery.com/indianapolis/
