Another Lazy Sunday With Cevonne and Jose

Since I have to rotate my seedlings everyday Scott said I should just move the greenhouse so the bottom shelf gets sun. Now its not in direct sunlight so we will see how this works.

I thought the whole shelf would get more light this way, but we will see.

Meadow and I like hanging out in bed. I sit there while she tires herself out.

I had to put the little one down for a nap. It's kind of my thing.

It's nice that he can start helping out now. She's had enough times being nursed to sleep.

The other day Scott made my belated birthday cake. This year I asked for a cookie cake.

I found one on Pinterest that was a peanut butter chocolate chip cooke cake with chocolate frosting, chopped peanut butter cups and drizzled chocolate fudge. Yea it tastes as good as it sounds.

I skipped breakfast and went straight for Hungarian-style stuffed cabbage. I might be biased towards the sauerkraut-less Polish version.

Meadow likes helping me with laundry and when I say help I mean she throws everything around.

She always seem to be on an adventure.

We mostly lounged around in her room all day trying to think of something to do.

 I feel like every year around this time I get cabin fever. The snow is melting so no more snowshoeing and it's too cold to do anything else. There's always shopping, but then we end up spending too much.

Cevonne texted us saying they were having a lazy day in their pajamas and asked if we wanted to join. 

We were keen on that idea.

First we had to finish lunch.

Menard's was having their 11% off everything sale and we needed new ceiling fans.

We're getting close to having everything in the house perfect apart from the floors, bathroom and kitchen.

When we arrived they were more interested in Meadow than us haha.

Madeline was super excited.

We all gathered around the coffee table and snacked on homemade dips.

Madeline likes to join Duncan in the dog kennel.

Then we watched Despicable Me before sending Madeline off to bed.

Then it was bedtime for us.

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
