Sunday, Snowy Sunday

I didn't know these were going on the blog but okay. I think my posture has gotten worse yikes.

I'm not sure you know, but Brooke's pregnant. She's showing a little bit. 

We got up late and I was too hungry to wait for breakfast so we opted for cereal.

I actually have been craving cereal for a while, so this was a nice change.

I told my best friend for life Olger that we were expecting. He was very excited and didn't reprimand me. I was expecting a harsh reaction from my brother and Olger, but they were actually pretty cool abou it. They usually say we're too young for any big announcement.

There had been talks the last few days of a blizzard coming. When we woke up it was just freezing rain then it turned to white fluffy snow.

I don't really think it rained that much.

I thought today would be a good day to start my seeds for the garden this year. I asked Scott to get the greenhouse and some pots from the garage. His task was interuppted for 2 hours when his dad called. Then the snow stopped so he had to shovel. 

Exaggeration of the century. I only talked to him for 45 minutes and I have the phone record to back that up.

Well it felt like 2 hours. 

I wanted to get out ahead of my neighbor who plows the driveways and sidewalks. He's always so on top of plowing that I don't get his walkway done.

We decided to set up our growing station in the sun room. I have a grow light that we will probably have to use until the days get longer.

We've always been late to this, so it made sense to start this early in larger containers  Then we can just plant them at a slightly more mature age.

I planted all the seeds that either haven't been successful in growing or didn't have enough time to grow to produce anything. I will start out with the seed warming pad and then move them to a light while starting another batch of seeds to sprout. 

We couldn't figure out what to eat after something we were going to make took way longer than expected. I made chicken mole, refried beans and some farro dish that didn't quite go with the rest of the meal. The first two were great and the farro side used up the spinach, so that's a plus.

Then we decided to spend the evening watching the Grammys. I hadn't watched it in years but it was pretty entertaining. Especially Taylor Swift who got excited and danced to every performance. 

It was her best performance...well...ever.

Marina's Twin Cities Birthday Weekend

Our niece Marina was turing 11 and had one request: a weekend in Minneapolis with her favorite cousin, Meadow. Marina made these masks for them. You know this cat lover was excited.  We walked over to Kiniko Kids and they had a Ghibli cookbook.  Meadow wanted this mushroom hat.  Since ice skating season ended early we still wanted to get one last skate in.  Theo tried out his new skates, which needed some adjustments.

Brittany's Babyshower

We traveled to Wisconsin again, this time for my sisters baby shower. Luckily I have Friday afternoons off so we could leave by noon. We also picked up Brittany along the way. My mom made us dinner when we arrived and during dinner I discovered a Christmas present that wasn't given to me. Super cute cloth napkins.  Mama Gail made what Brooke and her siblings dubbed "craperole." It was some kind of pasta bake. I actually liked it. Brittany and I had gotten our pajamas on not realizing we picked out the same outfit. I can't wait until my belly is as big as hers. My parents are giving Brittany their old changing table. Jaspurr thought it was his bed. I thought it was a new TV stand. My dad thought he needed a diaper change. Now he's all clean. The next morning my dad made sausage and eggs for breakfast. Us girls had packed up and left for the shower before Scott woke up. I had to run off to Mr. Mike's shop to photograp

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
