things I read and saw and did and ate on my vacation..
Did: drove up to a lake we used to take the boat out a lot when I was kid. Visited the Swiss Colony outlet store in Monroe WI, bought a huge brick of swiss and subpar, undecorated petit fours. Went to thrift stores, threw a bridal shower, had a camp fire, made smore's, watched a thunderstorm. Stayed up til dawn, took afternoon naps, ate potato salad, wrote three new poems.
Read: Sandra Beasley’s Theories of Falling (New Issues), Carol Guess’ Tinderbox Lawn (Rose Metal Press), latest issues of Fence and Denver Quarterly, In the Birds Breath, Marcia Roberts (Effing), a rather trashy Wicked Game,(found in the spare room at home under the bed, don't remember author.)Bride magazines.
Saw: cows lining up orderly to cross a bridge in a field, a miniature train attraction, lots of horses, Zak and Miri Make a Porno ,a ridiculous number of reality shows centered around cake making.
