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!

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
