A Dreary Sunday

We had planned to get up early and go to the farmer's market before Scott had to go to work. Of course that didn't happen. It was one of those cold rainy days where you just don't want to get out of bed.

I got up first and ate a bowl of puffed rice granola. I needed something in my stomach before my 11 to 7 shift at Geek Squad.

 I had my oatmeal and banana breakfast alone. Sigh.


I wouldn't of had time to go to the Minneapolis Farmers Market so I went to my neighborhood one on Broadway. As I was crossing the street an older gentlemen yelled to me to smile and said, "All you got to do is smile don't be so gloomy." Again I must look depressed if I'm not smiling. 

As you can see a lot of repairs haven't been done since the tornado.

I got all this for only $5 at the farmers market. Each group of vegetables was only a dollar each. I was hoping to get some apples today. Maybe next week.

Well my herb garden really took off. The basil mostly took over. There is some tarragon trying to grow underneath it. 

The squirrels have been stealing all our sunflower seeds for the winter. I have a feeling sunflowers are going to be growing all over our yard next year. 

I also noticed jalapenos starting to grow. Here's hoping I get at least one before winter. 

 For lunch I had stir fry. It may look like I only eat oatmeal and stir-fries, but that's not true. 

I ate the other leftovers: pesto with fettuccine and a small bowl of homegrown tomato soup. You can't really tell from the picture, but I watched a Rob Schneider movie during my lunch break. That TV never gets turned off; it just sits there waiting for an employee to take a break.


I then walked over to Tyler and Emma's house to do some exchanging. I needed to borrow some items for the wedding and she needed some items for cooking. 

Ms. Olive had just woken from her nap. She's so stinkin' cute. Curious about her necklace?

I'm pretty sure Emma's the only one I know that's had success with tomatoes this year. Most of it she has canned already and still has tons left. I'm a little jealous. I then headed back home to do some chores.

While on Facebook I noticed this ad. I really hope this kid doesn't need a cell phone. I was 18 when I got my first one and I turned out fine.

 I was about to do some cleaning when Emma called. She was making chili, but didn't have any chili powder. Lucky for her we had 5 bottles.

Then I tackled cleaning all our floor fans. I'm pretty confident we won't be using them anymore and they were getting kinda gross. 

Then I cleaned the rest of the house. With the summer being busy and too hot I may have skipped on cleaning a few times. I'm trying to stay on regular cleaning schedule, especially since lots of people will be coming to our house next month. 

Scott finally returned. Sundays are not fundays without him.

We ate more leftovers for dinner. What a dreary Sunday?

Then I set to work on pretty much the only wedding project I'm actually doing myself.

I cant say what it's for just yet. 

Good Night.

Thanks so much for the chili powder. :) There seems to be a reflection of us in our mixer bowl in the tomato photo. I always look at that house with the roof still missing and without a tarp on Penn. Hmm.

Neighbors Give Us Their Playground and We Eat Out Like COVID is Gone

  Meadow and Brooke have been making cookies every week from the book she got for Christmas.    This week we attempted to make French Macarons. Even though it was a total fail it's been something I've always wanted to try. I even bought a digital scale to make these. Now that I know the process I want to try again.     They were delicious. But what do I know. Our neighbors were giving us their playset as their kids outgrew it. We just had to figure out how to get over the fence. Original thought was wheeling it over on a dolly, but all of our gates were too narrow.   The kids were waiting oh so patiently.

Quick Let's Get Some More House Projects Done

  I was traveling abroad for work, so I tried getting some projects done before I'd be gone for a week. I focused on wet scraping and puttning down a coat of Peel Bond on the window sills. They weren't in great shape, but this would hold us over this year.   Our windows are full of peeling lead paint. Now that it's finally getting warm out I didn't want to open the windows until we knew they paint was encased.     Meadow was prepping for her birthday party. Still a month out, but she was ready.   She is really into the show Lion Guard. A spin off of Lion King. This is what she has decided her birthday theme will be.   Brooke worked on the linen closet/hallway ceiling.   I'm back to working in the office after 2 years of working from home. With Scott gone for the next week we asked my parents if they could watch the kids. I felt embarrassed that we hadn't painted the ceiling after my dad helped us install it last November.   

Gardening and Birthday Party at MOA

  A good chunk of our front yard was bare dirt. So, we tried our hand at growing grass from seed. It started out well.   First we put down just seed but the birds kept eating it.    Our house came with three raised garden beds. Me and and the kids each get our own. The kids were responsible for cleaning up and planing their own gardens. They got to pick what they wanted to grow too.
