Sunday February 20, 2011



They've been saying for days we were going to have snowstorm today. I wake up to this. Cloudy but no snow yet.



As usual I get up before Scott.



Sunday's are Pick-On-Peanut days.



I start making breakfast.



While it bakes in the oven I get dressed.



It has started snowing so I figure its a sweater kind of day.



Mmm pannekoeken or BIG PANCAKE.



This is Scott's "why do you always have to take pictures of me face"



Because I say, I'm the only one taking pictures"



We have things to do snow or no snow. We stop at Theodore Wirth to look at a possible wedding venue.




We like what we see.





Then we go to our favorite antique store Hunt and Gather. Everything is 20% off this weekend. We find a few things to spruce up our house.




Since we were close by we go grocery shopping at the new Linden Hills Coop. Not to sound snobbish but we were disappointed with the stores lack of local items. The bulk section didn't have any noodles either. We probably won't be shopping here again.



I get the job of clearing snow off the car.



We bought a new chair for our living room at Hunt and Gather.



We have a late lunch. Leftovers from Crescent Moon, goat cheese on an epi baguette and a mandarin.



We decide to do more wedding planning. We looked up prices and caterers.



Scott then braves the blowing snow to go to CVS down the block.



He comes back and says "I hate those shades you can't see outside." And walks over and takes them down.



I work on the centerpieces.



while Scott does lazy man dishes.



Then we both watch TV. Me on my computer and him on the TV.



Then I receive a very exciting text message!



Scott prepares dinner: Spinach Cannelloni.



Lots of spinach in our dinner again.



We have dinner late. Because we're cheap and like to save on electricity we eat our dinners in candlelight.

Good Night.

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

Pizza Farm, Another Waterfall and Two Wild and Crazy Guys Come to Minneapolis

 I've been wanting to check out this pizza farm in Northfield for a few years now. They are only open on Wednesday's and every 3rd Sunday. It just never worked with our schedules to go. When deciding what to do for dinner I remembered they had just opened for the season again.  Got a phone update and didn't want to make dinner. So, Red Barn Farm seemed like a good choice. Finally Brooke checked this off her list.    They have tables but you are free to sit anywhere you want on the lawn too.   It was the perfect day to enjoy the lawn.   They supply the pizza and you have to bring everything else, including dinnerware. They do have a small shop with a couple sodas for sale, otherwise its BYOB. The pizza is the wood fired variety that's oh-so-popular these day. Not complaining, it's good. Scott thought the pizza was average but it was delicious.  No, I didn't think it was average. It's just run-of-the-mill these days. Would go back. The kids were excited

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo
