Busy Bee

Scott decided to sleep in today so I made my own breakfast and left him to making his own. 

He eats quickly before heading off to work for the day. 

While he was at work I decided to do a million things. I'm not one to sit still. Even when I'm "relaxing" I'm still doing something else like knitting. I could never have an office job or something that had me stay in the same place.

So today I made granola, anadama bread, cleaned out the fridge, made gaucamole, took a break for lunch, washed all our light fixtures, cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed and washed the floors and made butter.

Oh and I made dinner. Chicken tikka masala. I did however forget to make naan. 

  The first thing Scott says when he comes home is, "Holy dishes Batman!"

 
Then Scott is left to all the dishes while I get to relax knit. 

We end the night early with reading in bed.

So tell me again how you make your oatmeal. I bought some old fashioned oats at the store and now what? 

What are you reading?

P.S. I have to say, it's so fun commenting now that I know where everything is!!! :)

Amanda--Just follow the directions on your oatmeal container. I do 1 3/4 cup water to 1 cup oats.

At the time of this post I was reading, What Einstein Told His Cook 2. It's about the science behind food.

The North Minneapolis Tornado of 2011

Brooke and the cat woke up only to look out the window, searching for the alley cat. An afternoon shift at the Best Buy. A normal morning. It started so peaceful. I'm not even supposed to work on Sundays. Something was off, Brooke was making good oatmeal. She had to take the car out to Long Lake. It wasn't going to be a normal day.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Labor Day is Oh So Great at the Cottage. Even This Year.

We planned on skipping the cottage for Labor Day thinking a lot of people would be up. Turns out that wasn't the case. We decided to spend our first day going on a bike ride.

We each towed a kiddo behind us. 
Pulling a bike trailer on a single speed gets to you after a while. Scott wanted to keep going down Sheltered Valley Road. We joked we should add Theo's trailer to Meadow's tag-along.
It actually worked and wasn't half bad.
