Tacos and Hayden on Easter Sunday

Baby Bo-Dot has been moving like crazy and lets us feel its head and feet.

This is getting real folks.

While Scott was still in bed I made breakfast for myself. Since I assumed he wouldn't have time to eat and he doesn't like oatmeal, I didn't share.

Thanks honey. You're so considerate.

I starting prepping the bread before we headed to church. Scott almost didn't go because he was "too tired" to make it to the 11am service.

I didn't sleep well, lady.

As soon as we got back I shaped the bread.

We were having fried chicken sandwiches in a few days, so half of the dough was made into rolls.

Then Scott got to look for his Easter basket. This year is his last one since from now on it will just be for the kid(s).

I'll miss being a kid.

In the process of looking he takes down our Christmas wreath.

I was making sure the Easter basket wasn't hidden in the fake foliage.

He looked everywhere. 

I guess the pictures weren't good enough of him finding it, but he got a new kitchen timer and some candy.

Shaky over here must've had to much imaginary coffee.

Two of my pepper plants never sprouted. Even with the help of the seed warmer and greenhouse. I replanted them in hopes that they will sprout soon or we will have to buy pepper plants. 

My little seedlings are getting so big. I'm so glad I started them early.

Too bad we're having the longest winter ever. So much for getting ready early.

Then I finished prepping and baking the bread while we had leftovers for lunch.

This weeks bread was New York Deli Style Rye. Another sourdough as will all of the upcoming breads. I made a few rolls for our meal tomorrow night.

I had a headache and didn't want it to ruin my night later so I took a nap. Scott joined me since he had to "get up early" today.

I took naps in college all the time. With my self-employment perhaps I'm getting back in that habit.


Then Scott started prepping our Easter dinner.

Fish Tacos. Why not?

I was pretty proud of my multitasking, which included prepping salted cabbage, mashing guac and frying up the tortilla chips and batter cod.

Best Easter dinner if I do say so. Although, it was sad we didn't get to do Freaster this year.

Emma and Tyler were away. We're not sure if we will have a Freaster again. We'll see...

I was still full after dinner, but not Scott he had some of our homemade banana and chocolate cake ice cream.

I didn't want to get hungry when we went out. Plus, I really like ice cream.

For my birthday Scott had gotten me tickets to my favorite artist, Hayden. He only comes around once every 4 years, if that, so I was happy to get to see him again.

It was  a great show. Not a huge crowd with it being Easter, but he was great as always. It was perfect besides a few coked-out weirdos.

The Women Take the Kids Camping to William O'Brien State Park

Scott had to work this weekend, which kept us home for once. Seeing as this is my first summer in 8 years that I don't have to work weekends I couldn't just stay home. She just can't. Sorry Minneapolis friends.

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.

Duluth For The Day

 After work I decided to drive up to Duluth to visit my little brother Blake. Scott would have come with me if he didn't have to work. Like most streets in Duluth he lives on a steep hill. I couldn't remember how to park on a hill so I copied the car in front of me.   He gave me a tour of his house and when we were in his backyard I heard rushing water. There was a trail and some woods that we followed down a hill to Chester Creek. I had no idea he lived so close to a park.   Or a waterfall.     We walked a ways to find an old ski jump. Blake said he climbed it when he first moved here and a month later the city took the stairs down.   The ski lift is still in use for sledding.  Walking back to his house we passed another ski jump. Back when this was first built it was the tallest in the world. During World War II 50 feet was taken off the top to give to the war effort.  The reason I came to visit Blake was mainly
