W is for Wabasha

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 12, 2015

My family went on a mini vacation this past weekend. We were invited to a wedding at the lovely Villa Bellezza in Pepin, Wisconsin so decided we’d stay overnight in nearby Lake City, Minnesota instead of driving home after the wedding. Saturday was also my daughter’s 16th Birthday so part of our decision to make a weekend of things…

V is for Vaya

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 11, 2015

Two summers ago, I purchased a Salsa Vaya so that I could expand my bicycling to include gravel riding and some touring. From what I understand, “Vaya” means “to go” in Spanish – so I decided to name my Vaya something that reflected the “to go” nature of the name. I couldn’t come up with…

U is for Uncoveries

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 9, 2015

Last year I had the fun of riding the Twin Cities Bike MS ride with some people from 30 Days of Biking. One of the people I had the privilege of riding with that day was a young woman named Amy. We talked much of the 25 mile route and she shared with me that she planned…

T is for Time

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 8, 2015

Time. I never seem to have enough of it and I tend to way underestimate how much time it will take for me to do tasks. Today, for instance, it took me about 40 minutes longer than I planned to fill out my form for my flight physical. I ended up rushing to get out…

S is for Summer

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 7, 2015

It’s hard to believe it’s already July and we’re already well into summer! I like summer because I enjoy having the kids home and having a more relaxed schedule. The weather this summer has been glorious and the mosquitos haven’t been bad. As a result, we’ve spend a lot more time out on our deck than normal…

R is for Riotgrrravel Reflections

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 4, 2015

Two weeks ago, on June 20th, I rode Riotgrrravel, a gravel race/ride for women and am happy to say that I completed the 30 mile ride. Riotgrrravel is very well organized ride meant to introduce women to gravel racing. The ride is organized and put on by an awesome woman named Ellie and her family. Ellie started the…

Q is for Quilting

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 3, 2015

I’ve been making quilts since about 1997 when I decided I needed to make something for a blank wall in my home. That first quilt was a small wallhanging made from a pattern I found in a magazine. I hand quilted the quilt but not having any concept of proper hand quilting technique, I “stab…

P is for Poznań, Poland

By Myrna CG Mibus / July 1, 2015

As I type this post, my older brother, Don, is on a plane headed for Poznań, Poland. I know about the country of Poland, of course, but hadn’t heard of Poznań before my brother told me he planned to spend a month near there. Have you heard of Poznań? Well, Poznań (according to Wikipedia) is the…

O is for Owatonna

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 30, 2015

Three years ago I had the fun of writing a story about Owatonna, a lovely town of about 25,000 located 35 miles south of my home. My story, Explore the Heart of Owatonna, was published in the Star Tribune’s travel section three years ago today – June 30, 2012. So, since today’s blogging challenge letter is…

N is for North

By Myrna CG Mibus / June 29, 2015

North is a direction on the compass, of course, but here in Minnesota it means something else, too. North means Up North, as in “we’re going up North this weekend.” Oftentimes “going up north” means the same thing as going to “the lake.” Funny thing is, “north” and “the lake” don’t mean any particular area, it…
