Keep Me Like A Key I'm The Only One


Mother came up for a few days. It was her last spring break and she wanted to go somewhere. I don't know why. She's been on spring break for 22 years. It was nice in a way, she brought me food and bought me things. She is the only person that doesn't make me miss the company of others. Our personalities are so different, we have some things in common, enough to find things to do anyway. I just don't understand sometimes how she can be my mother. We went to IKEA where we spent most of our time in the childrens department where she picked out things I should buy my kids. She kept trying to get me to buy things for them now. I think she wants to be a grandma.

The passport company of america isn't on my best list right now. They need to figure things out better. "Let's pass a law so that you can't go to Mexico or Canada without a passport right before spring break. Oh great now we're working overtime and so many people are mad at us, wow what a great idea." I guess I shouldn't complain I did get my passport finally after trying to call them for 2 days and being on hold for 45 minutes. I was supposed to pay an extra 50 dollars, but I never got charged. Now I'm just more excited to go even though I have no money and I'm going to come back more broke than ever.

Our last day of class we talked about ice cream and got to try many different samples. Why can't all classes be this fun?

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.
