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.

Money DOES Buy Happiness

I got a wake up call when I realized all the loans I took out for school actually went for school. I'm only working part-time at Menards now which is just enough to pay the rent and bills. My phase of being poor wasn't really a phase, but actually permanent. I took out another loan so I would have extra cash to feed me (being poor is the best diet). I won't see that money for another month which means no time off for a Christmas break. I have to wait a few more days to find out if I even get Christmas Eve off. This is by far the sadest Christmas ever for me. It doesn't even feel like Christmas. Only one house on my street put lights up, I'm used to everyone in my whole town putting up lights. Plus we don't have a tree or any decorations and we haven't had any snow yet. I did get a Christmas present from Menards, 55 dollars in Menards money and this. In two weeks someone I love and care about very deeply will be in London for 5 months and I only get to s

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

Honeymoon: Did Someone Say Fudge? How to Avoid the 57 Fudge Shops on Mackinac Island

We had to wait an hour but we made it onto the next ferry. I couldn't keep my eyes off the Mackinac Bridge. One of the Star Line Ferries actually passes under it. Next time we go to Mackinac, probably with kids, we'll have to drive over it.
