A Very Boring Sunday

Scott is out of town in his hometown of Cudahy, WI this week, so again it's just me and kitty.

I went out the night before to meet up with some old friends from back home. I stayed out pretty late and slept in pretty darn late. 

 A lot of the food we got last week was gluten-free. I was a little skeptical about these gf oats, but they tasted like regular oats and cooked quickly.

I did add raspberries to naturally sweeten it. 

I replanted new seeds to the squares that didn't survive the transplants. Hopefully the garden will be full by end of summer.

I was worried today was going to be pretty lame with me just tackling my to do list. I had started reorganizing my baking cabinet when I recieved two text mesages asking me to cross the river over to St. Paul.
I met up with same crowd from the night before at Burger Moe's for lunch. I totally wasn't thinking (must still not be quite awake yet) and didn't take any photos during lunch. I quickly asked Katie to take a picture of Ann and I as we were leaving. 

 After lunch I met up with Cevonne to go wedding dress shopping. I'm glad she's excited about it or I'd never get it done. We walked around her neighborhood checking out different vintage and used clothing shops. 


I really liked this dress. Unfortunately it was a size too small, I couldn't lift my hands above my shoulders. My grandma is letting me use her dress if I want so I feel like I'd be betraying her by getting one that is two years newer than hers.

Back at Cevonne's she had me try hers on. I was suprised it fit seeing as she is 6 inches shorter than me. It's pretty, but not the look I'm going for.

We spent the rest of the evening looking up dresses online. I gave up on that and headed home. 

Later I picked up Scott from the Greyhound station. It's good to have him home again.

Yup.

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…

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…

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.
