Sketching Memories of Our Staycation, 3 Industrial

Writing, writing, writing. . .  Make the book exciting, Raw-hide!
Mitchell likes to make up new words to old songs!

W15 10 MPR DKP STAYCATION 043Our quest to try new places took us to the Industrial Cafe for breakfast.
It was good, but not great.  A very normal diner in a great interior designed space.

It didn’t meet any of our criteria — and the thing is, when I asked if they had any organic items on the menu, she said, no, but they did do local.  Local is nice, for sure, and then she told me where they got their coffee, and how they might have organic.  I know this place, and when I had dropped in to see if they had organic coffee (I have long been allergic to the pesticides on coffee) they gave me a lecture on how organic was a made up thing.  (Crossed them off my list.)  I related that to her, and she agreed with them.

Crossed Industrial Cafe off my list.

But we had fun.  We sat at the counter because the place was busy.
All kinds of industrial stuff on the walls, cool rivets and turnings and I love all that!
I covet the flatware.  It didn’t say “USA” but “US” — nice!
We didn’t work on the book there because we would have shared it with too many around us.  Back to the studio to write and have Mitchell’s best coffee ever!

Platinum Carbon pen or Metropolitan pen and Super5 or De Artramentis Document inks;
Daniel Smith Watercolors with a few Holbein and QoR’s.

    I love Mitchell’s version of Rawhide. Of course, my mind is now stuck on stage with The Blues Brothers on stage behind the chicken wire, but I’ll get over that. Have a great day Kate!
