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!

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days. I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard. I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this. I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Su

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in. I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it. School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class. Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to l
