Cornfields, Barns And Silos

I slept in until 7:30 this morning, trying to get as much rest as possible on my only day off with the hope of stopping this cold that has plagued me since Wednesday.

It didn't work.

Check-out wasn't until noon so I took my time, moving slowly, showering and then packing my bags and loading the car. I still managed to be checked out at 10:30am, so I headed to Perkins Restaurant for a late breakfast, then stopped by Walgreens to pick up more cold medicine.

By noon I was on I-35 heading north to take Highway 20 eastbound for a 2 hour drive that would bring me to Waterloo/Cedar Falls, Iowa and the scenery for my entire drive consisted of cornfields, barns and silos. Still, after the floods that wreaked so much damage in June, it was good to see some fields with corn that was five to six feet tall waving in the wind.

It will be a busy week ahead as I familiarize myself with the area in this branch, prepare for a class I'll be teaching next Saturday and even work on a webpage for our intranet. If I don't post much, you'll know why.

Add 2 glasses of cranberry juice to your diet the next few days. It'll help flush the cold out and is full of vitamin c and electrolytes.

Hope you feel better soon!
