Snowshoes and Other Stuff

I forgot to feed kitty this morning. Oops. 

Last night we had a pizza party and gift exchange at Tyler and Emma's. They got us a new dish drying rack. It was meant to replace the small one we have now, but I kind of like using two at a time.

That's cause she's ghetto.

I finally put in the storms above the fireplace. We've got new homesteaders to the south of us. They've been fixing up in the inside since summer. Looking forward to them fixing up the exterior come spring.

Our new Sunday tradition. Mac and Cheese for lunch.

Sorry abou the slightly blurry picture.

I wanted to go to try our snow shoes out at our neighboring park, Theo Wirth. Most of the golf course and park is designated to cross country skiing. The snow shoeing is on the mountain bike trails. 


Without leaves and other foliage you could spot buildings you never knew were abutted to the park.


Snowshoeing Theodore Wirth couldn't live up to last week's highway hike in Duluth.

We did end up crossing boundaries over to the skiing side. I was getting a little jealous watching the skiers whiz by.

I didn't know that there was a large pond on the golf course side of the park. I guess it's part of Bassett's Creek.

When we got home we warmed up with hot cocoa and heated up chocolate for dipping our Oreo truffles. 

Last night we got a snowman ornament from Olive. I think it's so cute that this made her think of us

We worked on the truffles while Scott prepped the dinner. 

I took a bath while Scott cooked. Dinner was taking a long time to make. We both weren't feeling well. I had a bad headache so we ended the night really early and went to bed after dinner.

Yup.

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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

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.
