I’ve been back on my low-carb eating plan (I refuse to utter the “D-word”) for three days now, and I’m a severely crabby little camper. How long will it take to regain my unusually sunny disposition? Any bets?

The Women’s Adventure Club (WAC) had an outing in late July. I always have fun with the WAC. No crabbiness allowed.

In July we went and toured The Landing. It’s a living-history museum near Shakopee, Minnesota. A 19th century store, church, livery, and government buildings were moved to the site, along with houses and farm buildings.

Costumed townspeople narrate their daily lives, giving you a glimpse of what Minnesota was like 150 years ago.

We toured both a fine home that had been built by a lumber baron, and a more modest home that would have housed a working-class family.

The more modest home photos didn’t turn out, because there wasn’t enough light. Apparently, those of modest means couldn’t afford sunlight?

Stay tuned…
