Given that Ernie’s treatments are on hold, our schedule kinda opened up. We were planning to stop to pick up something at the St. Louis Ikea next time we were at Barnes (supposed to have been tomorrow) so instead we lumbered on up to the Ikea in Bolingbrook. So simple. You park, text and they bring your order out to you and help you load it.
We took back roads most of the way up. I must take my beloved friend Mary to task, she had told me there was nothing of note in Herscher. Ha! First look at that lovely 19th century frame building up above and then at the beauties below.
I must admit we absolutely sped through Herscher because I had just realized that my laissez-faire attitude toward our route had put us dangerously behind schedule for our Ikea pickup. I don’t know what I thought they’d do–lock away our order that we had already paid for, but I am at heart, a good girl, so off we raced. We will do more wandering around there in the future.
I’m rather pleased that I was able to get some stains off this little candle stand. I googled a bit and found that Bob Vila said mayonnaise would work. And it did. I was tickled. It needs a bit more work but it made me happy.
