A Half Missing Sunday

Unfortunately the photos on Scott's camera were accidentally erased so were left with the few photos I took this day.

I take the blame for this half post. I handed Emma my memory card the day of our wedding, not thinking to tell her she shouldn't format the memory card. We've also been having computer issues/got married/been busy so we're behind...again. 

 Scott had to work at 7 am this morning and was long gone by the time I woke up. Peanut has his usual spots that he sleeps. Today I couldn't find him and thought maybe he had gotten outside when Scott left for work. Then I discovered him hanging out on the shelf. 

His favorite hobby in the winter is hanging out in the bathtub waiting for someone to turn the water on so he can lick it.

He has some kind of sixth sense that tells him we're going to be in the bathroom. Of course we do oblige him by turning the faucet on for him for a few seconds.

For breakfast I believe am pretty certain I had oatmeal. I then headed to the farmers market to pick up a few items. I got to take the new bike lanes on Emerson Avenue.

These bike lanes have been coming soon for at least the past year. The major north-south bike routes were the river/North 2nd St or Theodore Wirth/Victory Parkways, which are on the opposite sides of North Minneapolis.  It's a treat to have a centrally located north/south route and not feel like  you're going get knocked off the road.

I'm still in awe at how much produce you can still get this time of year. I ended up getting potatoes, garlic, onions, broccoli, and lettuce.

This is the last of our tomatoes this year. Next year I will try to start the seeds earlier so I end up with more throughout the summer and, hopefully, try at canning. 

Unusually warm weather has allowed my jalapenos to grow. 

Scott had taken down the little fence surrounding the garden and something or someone ate all our carrots.

Who knew that the fence actually kept animals out? Peanut always seems to traipse right in.

I don't remember what I had for lunch. Then I did some cleaning until Scott came home around 3. 

We stopped by CVS to pick up photos we wanted printed for the wedding. Apparently this is the only store that doesn't do photo printing.

Actually there machine is just down, but it was not convenient for us.

We then spent most of the afternoon preparing dinner. We had roasted butternut squash ravioli with a brown butter sauce. We also enjoyed a bottle of wine and long conversations.

That's what I call love.

Next post: Our Wedding!

Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader.  We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us. One of our favorite places and now even closer. We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection. While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school. I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead. It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table. Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good. Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge! We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it. A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less cr

We're Selling the Condo

We always knew our condo would be temporary. I could stay here forever but eventually Meadow and Theo will want their own space. Our next house will be a duplex with the other unit being rented out.  We had planned to keep the condo and rent it out too (and buy a duplex), but it wasn't quite working out with financing. Also realized we'd make a killing on selling the condo. Extra bonus: we'd get a nicer duplex with more cash down. We had been looking for places for the past 8 months, but houses are selling super fast in this market. If we actually want to make an offer we need to sell our place first. So today was spent getting the house ready. I've been working on the house every day since getting back from our week at the cottage. 12:00 Scott works in the kitchen I worked on deep cleaning the living room. So many toys hidden under the radiator.  Meadow ended up staying with my parents after we left the cottage. Theo was left on his own but I don't think he minded.

The Crews All Here: Labor Day 2021 at the Three Lakes Cottage

  We had a full house for Labor Day weekend this year. We started off said weekend with rummage sales and a trip to the new store in town, Little Dipper . We've been eyeing this place up all summer. They have classic Chicago Schwinn's for rent, seasonal flowers and an assortment of souvenirs and vintage items. It was pretty darling inside. The main reason we went was to get their Chain of Lakes puzzle. Blake had sent the historic map to the owner, so we had to get it.
