House for Sale?

My early bird helper helping me prepare breakfast.

These two make getting up early a OK.

Lately Meadow has been waking up around 8:00.

Brooke thought she burnt the food. It turned out delicious.

She must think she's at the cottage.

We may be moving this summer, which means we have to get our house ready to sell. Our to do list is a lot longer than we originally thought.

We picked up a bunch of things to get the basement in better shape. According to the lead safe practices class I took I needed some thick plastic sheeting.

We also got basement wall paint, rubber baseboard and a few other things.

We didn't have any leftovers for lunch and we were all starving at Menards. So frozen pizza it is. 

The cardboard that came with the pizza turned out to be a bad tray.

 Once Meadow was down for a nap Scott and I got to work on the basement. We decided to work on one room at a time.

The first step was removing the old baseboard and vacuuming up any debris.

Meanwhile I started sorting through all the stuff we want to get rid of. My sisters want to do a rummage sale in the spring so I worked on pricing things. 

After spending all afternoon in the basement we made some veggie sushi.

I made some dessert sushi to finish off dinner. It's just a banana spread with peanut butter and rolled in rice krispies.

Meadow finished hers up while...


Mom watched her favorite show.

I had no idea you were thinking of moving. Do you know what area? Have you found something?

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
