Slow Saturdays

Slow Saturdays are the best kind of days. With no plans this past weekend, life was full of sleeping in, light reading, and impromptu road-trips.

Platen Press Operation

I took some time to dig in to a new press book, Platen Press Operation. So far I’ve really enjoyed it and am hoping to include more reading in my days, even if I’m “too busy.”

With the open weekend, John and I also took a spontaneous roadtrip to Elkader, Iowa to try out 2 Mit Burgers. They are steamed burgers, topped with grilled onions and cheese, with a bakery bun, made just down the street at Pedretti’s Bakery. 2 Mit Burgers are made in a small little building, just open during the summer months. We spotted a little bench near the river in the main street district and enjoyed a impromptu little picnic. (There isn’t much online about 2 Mit Burgers, but there are a few other reviews here and here.) 

Oil Can

I also happened to find the cutest oil can at an antique store in town. I think he’ll make good friends with the presses. Here’s to a great weekend and a refreshed perspective for the week ahead!
