Sundays Aren't As Fun As They Used To Be


Slowly but surely I am growing.

I sure hope we can name it Forrest. Such a good name. 

 I was checking to see how different I looked from when we first starting taking photos at 5 weeks.

Oh, I got a new computer with the insurance money from the break in. I hope that jerk enjoys a seven-year-old iBook. I'm going to be selling the one on the left to Mr. Mike.

 Pretty much all my plants except for the peppers have sprouted.

I think this is going to be a great year gardening.

Waffles for breakfast. Now, that's worthy of breakfast in bed.

 While Scott was busy making breakfast I was busy contacting everyone I knew to get their phone number.

This past week the touchscreen on my old phone decided to quit on me making the phone pretty useless. Last night I bought a new one.

Since I couldn't get to my contacts I had to do it the old fashioned way. Thank goodness for Facebook. 


After last weeks discussion, we decided to start cataloging our neighborhoods housing stock by scoring and photographing each building. I met with Ed and Joel and we qucikly got down to work after a quick discussion on preservation versus demolition.

Joel and I are squarely in the preservation camp. Ed up above on the left wanted this house taken down. Though this home wasn't in good shape, it could've been salvaged and brought back to its modest grandeur. 

I was told this home was knocked down a few days after this photo was taken. That's $15,000 to $20,000 that city could've spent to rehab the exterior at least. Hopefully our work will change the city's stance and our ability to maintain the character of our housing stock.

I'll admit this house was in bad shape, but the vast majority of our homes are not. They may need a helping hand, say $15,000, if you catch my drift.

 Scott took both cameras with him. Although I mostly did things around the house that weren't worth documenting anyway. When he returned I was just finishing up vacuuming. I don't understand how our floors get so dirty, so quickly. Peanut doesn't shed that much and we always take off our shoes when we enter the house. Well, some of us are better at it then others.

I'm better than most.

 We had a bunch of leftovers in the fridge so we skipped cooking dinner. 

 This week I made Pugliese. This bread also had potatoes in it. I think the starch in the potatoes helps keep the bread soft. 


My little bread baker.

There were a million steps to this bread, so it literally took me all day to make. I guess we forgot to take a photo of the finished product. This one was as good as last weeks. Super soft inside with a crunchy crust. 

Then we ended our night with Season 2 of Game of Thrones.

If you like Lord of the Rings, you'll definitely dig this show. Plus the Dragon girl is really pretty. 

We also caught the end of the Oscars.

That was a graceful fall.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part I

Theo and I go for a walks or wagon rides while Meadow finishes up her school work. This is also the last photo we have of "baby," his blue teddy bear. Missing you "baby" aka Blue Boo.
Baby went missing and we can't figure out where he is. 
Meadow has been on a sewing streak again. This time she made a skirt with some leftover fabric from a dress I made her.
She wanted to add the zig zag design to it too.

Another one of those papa and Theo walks around the block. He's not fast, but he loves his balance bike.
Theo has suddenly wanted to join in our wiffle ball games. 
Meadow and her outfits.

I'm more confused by the two weirdos playing horsey down our long driveway.
Our local liquor store does curb side pickup and puts your order in your trunk for you. Or in our case our bike trailer.

Of course I wear mask when I'm picking the beer up.


This about it this week. Kind of uneventful.

May Didn't Quite Get Canceled: Part II

Mother's day means handmade cards from Meadow.
Also breakfast made by Meadow.
Then Meadow made another breakfast banana split for her and Theo.

Sand Dunes State Forest

Out of the blue we decided we needed to go camping.Being only a few days after the fourth we decided to head to a state forest. Most state parks are booked this time of year, so the forests are good alternative.
On the way I got really hungry. We found a Culver's and ordered a small feast. Of course I got a blueberry malt and a bacon butterburger. The best of all malt flavors. Brooke and I shared cheese curds since she already ate leftovers.
