Karl's cabin on Diamond Lake in Cable, Wisconsin / Friday, October 3, 2014
"Back home last night from my trip to Minneapolis, MN and Cable, Wisconsin. The Mall of America is not my "cup of tea" but the whole day on Friday is now one of my very most treasured memories to last forever.
It was on Friday that I drove almost four hours from Minneapolis to Hayward and Cable, Wisconsin. Thirty years have gone by since Karl and I were there and I really didn't know the way. Thanks to the new Cadillac Budget rental car with GPS and the good people at the grocery store in Cable, I found the cabin about 4:30 in the afternoon.
As I drove into the lane and up to the cabin, I suddenly realized that I was in the middle of a beautiful, misty wonderland, just like in a fairytale. It had begun to snow very hard but not sticking on the ground yet. The temperature was 36 degrees and fog was hanging heavy over the lake. In all of this splendor, there was even more . . . . this Fall's beautiful, foliage colors were still peeping out from everywhere, creating and beckoning me into what seemed like a glorious, live painting. My treasures greatly increased that day and I am Blessed beyond measure."
