Go away snow! Summer where are you?

I hope it warms up soon, my winter coat is getting harder to button.

While Brooke's getting bigger, peanut is stil a creeper.

It was too cold by the window so I had to move my seedlings back into the greenhouse.

Worst Spring ever.

The snow was actually very pretty. We talked about going snowshoeing until it turned to cold rain. And yes that is our Christmas tree. We have plans to cut it up to use as kindling.

For breakfast Scott suggested big pancakes. We hadn't had that for awhile so I was excited. Although we had to substitute buttermilk for milk and spelt flour for all-purpose flour.

Back during our honeymoon I thought it would be fun to jump in the sand dunes. I forgot my camera was in my back pocket and eventually sand got in the lens so it stopped working. Scott finally got around to fixing it.

I took it apart a week ago to see If I could get the sand out of the lens.

That didn't work. So, I ordered a new lens off of eBay and arrived on Saturday. I think it's the first time I used the site. 

The pancakes didn't turn out at all. I hate when you're excited about something and it doesn't turn out the way you expect.

Oh you should've been here. She was so grumpy. I did my best.

I could only eat the middle and even that was hard.

But look! You got a hat out of it.

The last time I went to the library I got excited and checked out a bunch of books. I'm actually reading them all at once. Today seemed like a good day to do some reading.

Yay my camera works again.

I may not change my own oil (though I could), but I can fix a tiny camera and not lose any screws.

Scott was bored and wanted to get out of the house. He suggested we get some rug grips and I needed to get some soil, so we headed to Menards.

Even going from the car to the store was not nice. It was windy, wet and cold.

They didn't have any organic seed starter soil (neither did Home Depot) but they did have Easter candy on sale.

I guess that's something. We also passed on getting more new handles for our kitchen cabinets. The budget is tight for May, so we're not spending more than we have to. Anybody need portraits, getting married or own a business

When we got home I started my favorite meal, Singapore Noodles.

I met up with Scott and some old friends after work yesterday, so I didn't have time to get this weeks bread started. This week we are making Sourdough Rye. It called for coarse rye flour. Luckily Scott got me this grain mill for Christmas.

It was actually my first time using it and I was pleased with the results.

Too bad the bread didn't turn out the next day. Not sure why, but it was extremely dense.

After dinner we bummed around until time for bed.

As Olive says "Go away snow! Summer where are you?"

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.

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.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days. I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard. I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this. I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Su
