Valentiens = Hearts

Today started off on a bad note. I was caring Meadow downstairs to make breakfast when I slipped halfway down. I landed on Meadow and she started crying. I thought for sure I had broken her leg. She was fine, but when I stood up I couldn't walk on my left foot.

Brooke thought she may have broken it, but after a conversation with Momma Gail we thought we'd wait it out. It turns out it was better by the next morning. I'm just happy neither of my babes got seriously hurt.

This sweetheart is a tough little gal. Her canines are coming in, which means her nose has been running for a week.

Seeing as it's Valentines I made us some heart shaped eggs.

Along with chocolate rye pancakes that tasted like cake. 

Meadow couldn't argue with cake for breakfast.

Meadow colored in some hearts while Scott cleaned up. 

I finished crocheting my heart garland.

All I wanted for Valentine's Day was some ice cream. So Sebastian Joe's it was.

Salty caramel for me and the usual Oreo for Brooke while Meadow took about a third of each our cones.

Since it was only 5 degrees we got a 30% discount.

Back at home it was time for lunch. Of course we ate it in a heart shaped bowl.

We only have one.

I needed to rest my foot so Meadow and I watched Charlie Brown's Valentines episode.


I made a heart-shaped bundt cake while Brooke prepped dough for Valentine's pizza.

This pan makes the perfect servings.

Meadow figured out how to get into the nook. She was writing on everything but the chalkboard so I helped her up to the real thing.

Even when I took the chalk away she didn't want to leave the nook.

Or stop drawing on everything.

I asked Emma if they wanted to join us for dinner. To go along with today's theme we had heart shaped pizzas.

This was a damn good Hallmark card appreciation day. The Fiala's always make for a good time.

Meadow is suddenly into hugging. 

After I gave Tyler a bunch of my old clothing I read Olive a story since she asked me. Brooke tried to catch this moment but was too slow. Nice try killer bee!

It was hard to do with one working foot.

Happy Valentines!

First, your Valentine's Day sounded just lovely. So relaxing and peaceful. I loved that you had heart stuff for every single meal. Glad that you guys didn't get hurt!

Gardening Mama (or How to Hang Out with High School Friends)

Some of Scott's friends from high school that he hasn't seen in like 7 years were stopping by later to see our house. We quickly cleaned up the place, breaking one of our favorite mugs on the way.

A Day Berry Picking and Canoeing Around Grey Cloud Island

I've always made fun of Camelbak backpacks, but recently we got one for our hiking backpack and then one for Meadow's birthday present. At a garage sale I even picked up an old Camelbak.
Meadow got some birthday money from her Tuska grandparents. When I asked her what she wanted she picked a hiking backpack. We lucked out on finding one that holds a water resivor. I told her the bag was going to get heavier with water, but she still loved it. 

Even with it being the end of July already, we still had to get our annual berry picking in. Sadly our usual berry farm experienced hail damage in June and was closed for the summer.

We settled on going back to Sam Kedem Nursery Garden.
We hadn't been to Sam Kedem's for a few years and with our normal berry picking field out of service it just made sense.
The blueberries were inside of these nets and I kept getting stuck on the net. 
The berries were super tiny and not as plentiful as our usual place.
Meadow was loving her new back…

A Few Thoughts to Pass the Time

I'm sitting at the library, my new hang out besides random coffee shops. Class isn't for another 2 hours and I've finished all my homework. There's a guy running across holding his pants up and rush hour is just setting in.

I never realized how weird Minnesotians actually are until I saw American Idol last night. They were doing auditions in Minneapolis, which Randy liked to call Minnehopeless. I thought it was just the culinary students that we're weird at my school, but no it's the whole state. The majority of the people that I know here are not actually from Minnesota, only one that truely is seems ok to me. Maybe I'm just like them but I don't want to admit it.

School is alright. It keeps me busy. I like that some classes only have 10 students. Everyone in my Nutrition class eats healthy and reads the ingredient list but me. At least I get to take home everything I make in my baking class.



Summer seems so far away. I need to find a place to live bef…
