Is it spring yet?

I maybe didn't need to plant everything so soon. This carving pumpkin seedling is going to take over the greenhouse.

This little seedling is gonna take over the house. She's so mobile.

This is how mornings usually go these days. I go in and feed her in the morning, she gets up to play and I lounge on her bed.

I always wonder where Brooke is when I turn over.

We tried on her lamb coat. It's so close to fitting her. Hopefully she will get to use it before its too warm.

Maybe she'll sprout before it's too warm or stay tiny into next year.

We had cereal for breakfast.

She is obsessed with pulling herself up. Except that she needs to work on her balance because she's always falling over and bumping her head.

She's started to like being in here for more than 5 minutes again.

This is some of the best news in a while.

Lunch time. Meadow has peas.

I made the last of the chowder with cream that I've been putting in everything this week. I bought a half-gallon of organic cream from Costco. That is a major mistake if you're trying to eat "healthy."

Scott doesn't like that I give her a glass to drink her water out of. I didn't think she would know how to use a straw, but I guess she does.

During her second nap I worked on finishing up a knitted cat for a baby shower were going to next week.

Little Baby Rogers is going to love this.

I really need to work on my embroidery skills. It kind of looks like its left eye was punched.

Scott made an awesome dinner.

I'm sure I complained about it before, during and after. It turned out great. The main attraction was Swedish Meatballs with cream sauce with mashed potatoes (with cream of course) open faced sandwiches. The only thing without cream was a medley of roasted brussels sprouts, asparagus and pecans. 


The season finale of Downton Abbey was on during dinner.

I've missed half the season doing dishes. That's pretty good for me.

Meadow continued chewing on her spoon while I watched.

We've all got to have a pastime.

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.

Pizza Farm, Another Waterfall and Two Wild and Crazy Guys Come to Minneapolis

 I've been wanting to check out this pizza farm in Northfield for a few years now. They are only open on Wednesday's and every 3rd Sunday. It just never worked with our schedules to go. When deciding what to do for dinner I remembered they had just opened for the season again.  Got a phone update and didn't want to make dinner. So, Red Barn Farm seemed like a good choice. Finally Brooke checked this off her list.    They have tables but you are free to sit anywhere you want on the lawn too.   It was the perfect day to enjoy the lawn.   They supply the pizza and you have to bring everything else, including dinnerware. They do have a small shop with a couple sodas for sale, otherwise its BYOB. The pizza is the wood fired variety that's oh-so-popular these day. Not complaining, it's good. Scott thought the pizza was average but it was delicious.  No, I didn't think it was average. It's just run-of-the-mill these days. Would go back. The kids were excited

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
