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.

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears . I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.
