My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean

Today is the first day of spring, well it is only 30 degrees but for the first time in months I don't need to wear 8 layers of clothing to go outside.



Cevonne graced me with her beautiful presense for a few quick days. I realized I miss having a companion around. Someone I can spend all my time with. I'm ok with doing things alone, but I would rather have someone with me to share the experience. She came along with me to do the things I'd been putting off for some time. She knows what I'm talking about.

We took a romantic walk at Minnehaha falls. The frozen waterfall was so beautiful, I was in awe the whole time.



It felt like by the time she got here she had to leave. I wish all my friends could come here whenever they wanted. I get a little homesick thinking about it.

My baking teacher was angry at my class because we never listen when he talks. He made me stand in front of the class and tell a story while he sat in my spot. Well, I can't handle it when all attention is on me and my mind goes blank. I stood there and he says, tell us what you did last night. Normally I don't go out on Friday nights because I have class so early on Saturday mornings, but some girls that I worked with at the mall asked me to come out with them for happy hour. So I told the class I went out for a few drinks and got home late. I finished and everyone stared at me. My teacher asked how I felt, I said akward, so he let me sit down. Now my class thinks I'm like this bar hopping party girl. Ah well.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part III

Sunday called for downpours all day long. I got the kids in their rainsuits and we headed to the Rose Garden.
 It was nice with no one here.



Theo wanted to bring his ducky along on a walk but we couldn't find the doll carrier. His overalls would have to do.
Meadow had to get outside for distance learning, so we went to the bird sanctuary next to Lake Harriet.
Meadow had to tell her teachers what she heard, felt and saw. And she sent a picture and audio recording of the frogs in the marshy forest.

Of course she needed to. 

 Scott had to work outside the home for the day while I worked from home. Once in awhile I'd come out to check on the kids. One time I caught Meadow making her own mug cake. I asked her what she put in it and she said, "I don't know, a little of this a little of that". It was actually not bad.
 She even cleaned up after herself.
 We have been working with the neighbors in our building to put in a patio in the back. I made a wall with our random p…

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.
