Is It Snowing In Space?

Today while I was sitting in my boring cost control class we find out there is a tornado warning. What do they have us do? Take all our things with us before leaving the room and have us sit in the stairway (my class is on the 4th floor). I should be lucky to be alive. The funny thing was watching everyone immediatly get on their cell phones to tell their friends that they were trapped in a stairway.

So this new job that I have been talking about, yea funny story. First of all they wanted me to wear khaki's haha, who wears khaki's anymore I mean seriously. The only ones I could find were at Kohl's that were super tight and flared out at the bottom. So I thought, why the heck am I even doing this, I know I'm going to hate the job and they are going to make me work crappy hours, oh yea they made me promise I'd work every Saturday evening in the summer ha. In my panic to find a new job fast I resorted to craigslist where I found several jobs and e-mailed all of them. I was lucky enough to get a response right away. After deciding when to set up an interview we told each other what we looked like and what we'd be wearing. Even the interveiw felt like a first date, we met at a bakery where we sipped coffee and talked about ourselves. By the end I had a new job. I am a maid for rich people. The great thing is the lady who hired me doesn't take taxes out of the paycheck. The clients actually leave you a check when you go to their house. The first house we went to was beautiful and time just flew by. On the other hand Dollar Thrifty wasn't too happy. Since they have this fear of calling people I got this e-mail.



Other than that we're getting 3 new roomates this fall. One including Scottie who comes home soon. I feel like a little kid counting down to Christmas, except this present will be better. Our house is posessed with ghosts, just ask Julia.



But our basement may be a new venue.



And I've picked up knitting again, it helps keep from doing homework. I'm back to Scott's sweater which I'll hopefully finish by this winter.

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.
