We live just southeast of the large town (by Kansas standards) of Topeka. Just west of Topeka is the little town of Alma. The sketch has a chart showing populations. You'll see how small it is. Alma is the largest town in Wabaunsee County, as Topeka is the largest town in Shawnee County. We're sisters in a way. The small size equates to a very small retail sale district, so we haven't had a reason to 'stop by'. I decided it was time. They've always had the cheese factory but I wanted to see other things, too.
The weather was a winter cold, at least too cold and windy to just sit and sketch in any resemblance of comfort. Therefore I used the capture-it-on-the-cellphone-sketch-later approach. Less than ideal but better than no sketch. Alma does have some nice churches and a large government building for their county seat. We stuck to downtown, all three blocks of it. The cheese factory is close to it, down by the tracks.
This is the final sketch of my current sketchbook. My next batch isn't bound yet, but it's close. I have another sketchbook started that I abandoned because I don't like the landscape orientation. I can use it to hold me over but I really want to finish my bookbinding. If the next post is wider than tall, you'll know I didn't make it.
