OK, One More Trip to the Minneapolis Farmers Market

My solo breakfast. Everything homemade. Besides the banana, I don't know how to make bananas.

Maybe we can grow them when we make that big move to Central America.

"I don't need no stinken diapers."

Disposable that is. She's moved on.

We went to the farmers market for one last trip this year. 

This time of the year they don't need a freezer.

Some guy said to me, "You better pay me to take a photo of my grandson," as I took this shot.

I'll miss you local produce.

Meadow doesn't giggle very often and when she does I try to keep it going but it never works. 

Instead they both made very serious faces.


I hear these two.

On our way to the farmers market we noticed the car felt odd. Turned out it had a gouge in the sidewall. I ordered a new set from Costco since my tires were more or less shot anyways

This week we got cabbages, bell peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes, poblanos and lots of onions. All this for only 22 dollars. 

My dad makes looms for my sister's Etsy shop. On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby I saw a loom for making socks. I've never been successful at knitting socks so I thought this would be perfect for me. I sent my dad a photo of one. He never responded. The other day we got a package in the mail from my dad. In it was the sock loom done exactly right, he's so smart. 

We then ate leftover skillet carnitas.

Mr. Mike also sent us a DQ gift card. We bought buster bars with the money. I love buster bars.


This week is the last week the city will collect yard waste. We had some leaves that needed to be raked. 

Brooke decided to come out with Meadow in my jacket. I think she broke the zipper for good.

I had her in the Moby wrap and put on one of Scott's coats to make life easier. She was nice and warm in there. 

I had to make smoked sausage for dinner. I couldn't decide on one, but I finally settled for Polish.

The link was as tall as Meadow.

I had to pat it dry before smoking.

We borrowed a stovetop smoker from Brooke's gig at the Nordic Ware Factory Store.

While the smoker did it's thing, we hung out with little Meadow.

I put her in the Ergo so I could have free hands. She loves chewing on the straps lately. 

About two hours later I added the sauages to split pea, kale and chicken stock. Brooke later complained it was too thin. I thought it was pretty damn good.

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

Over the River & Through the Woods to Grandmothers House We Clean

My mom had wanted us to come down to my grandparents home to clean for months. Unfortunately a busy summer had kept us away. We finally made it a week after our honeymoon ended. We slept at my parents home in Cudahy before heading down to Racine. We got home from our trip on Tuesday and left for Milwaukee on Thursday. It was almost like an extended vacation. Before leaving the cities we stopped and had dinner at Foxy Falafel. It was pretty good and I like that she uses sprouted chickpeas.  I never knew my grandparents on Poppyseed Tuska's side so Grandma and Grandpa Wojcik were a special part of my life. They both passed away last year after living nearly 90 wonderful years.  Their home was always a wonderfully warm and inviting place. The perfect place to spend your Christmas Eve in front of a fire place. Since it's going to be sold, Brooke and I took on the massive task of organizing and cleaning the home. When Scott told me his mom wanted us to c

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.
