Fall Walks and Farmers Markets


The time change was great. I had breakfast before the others woke up. I got up at 8 and Meadow slept until 9. I actually got up early for once and before Meadow. 

For 6 weeks I pumped everyday to stock up on milk for when I go back to work. When I went back it turns out Meadow gets enough from the supply I pump the morning of. I figure at least this way if anything happens to me or I can't breastfeed for some reason at least she can still get breastmilk.

Well that's kind of depressing. I hope nothing happens to anyone and we just have way too much breast milk in the freezer.

As the last days of the Farmers Markets are dwindling down we decided to head out to pick up the last of the local veggies. 


I think there will be a few weeks of the market left. There was a cornucopia of produce available.

Meadow enjoyed looking at all the produce. 

I'm pretty sure she just likes looking at colors of any sort.

We got collards, chard, dino kale, parsnips, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, red onions, carrtos, baby bok choy, garlic green bell peppers and potatoes.

If I remember correctly this all cost only $26. Until next year farmers market deals.

I made chili from the night before and then headed down to Excelsior for a gig I needed to get done.

I had leftover Ma-po Tofu.

I'm shooting lifestyle photos and shoots of neighborhoods for a local startup called  Community Expert. This one didn't quite fit the vibe. Excelsior was definitely my favorite shoot to date.

While Scott was out we did some play time and then she started getting grumpy.

It is probably the last nice day for a while so we went for a walk. 

We walked along the Theo Wirth Parkway. I saw a dad flying a kite with his kids. 

Why don't more people use this park? It's not like it's in a dangerous neighborhood. Is it because it's adjacent to North Minneapolis?

I more or less walked around Excelsior. This streetcar suburb isn't sprawling like most of my shoots for this company. Brooke and Meadow should've come along.

We always bike the parkway, it was interesting to see it from a walking perspective. The walking path brings you down to the creek. 

I want to take more walks with her.

They'll have to be with snowshoes very, very soon.

I made it back home in time for dinner.

Meadow watched us in her chair while we cooked.

We went back and forth on cooking duty.

I made dinner again. Chicken and mango quesadillas. 

I've been getting sick of this flickering light above the sink.

I tried fixing it, but it turns out that the wires were shot. Put up a work light temporarily. Brooke called it ghetto.

We both hung out with Meadow until she fell asleep.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the

Sushi Sunday Returns

Today I woke up before Scott and surprised him by making big pancakes. I was so excited, but I had to take a quick shower first. He didn't know I was making breakfast and woke up too late. He had to scarf it down before heading to work. I'm not going to complain that Scott had to work on a Sunday again. Yea it sucks, but I need to be more thankful that he has a job. It may not be the best he's had or the worst and the pay isn't phenomenal, but life isn't always fair. Instead of dwelling on the things I don't like I need to be more happy about the things in life that are great.  After he left I spent time on-and-off working on this puzzle. It's a lot easier to see the many colors when the suns out. I think I found about 3 more pieces.  Then I ordered more seeds online . Last year we figured we had enough, but then we realized we really want to grow kale and chard and popcorn. I know it's a little early to be getting excited abo

Mexico 2020 - Guanajuato

While planning our Mexico trip Scott discovered a city "nearby" that he said looked cool. He originally told me it was like an hour away.  I think I said a few hours away, but maybe. Except when we got our bus tickets it was actually 6 hours.  Sometimes you need to take a journey for a good adventure. Or something. We picked up this model bus for Theo at the bus station. Also he's claimed the Frida backpack.
