Our Clothes Are Too Old?

Breakfast was going to take longer than I had thought. I forgot to add in the time for roasting beets. Meadow gets super cranky/tantrum city if she doesn't eat right away so I tied her over with a banana.

Yesterday we spent the entire day running errands. Is this how normal people spend their Saturdays? The only time we have to go shopping is to get groceries, but yesterday we had to get a birthday gift, buy kitty food, go to the camera store, grocery shop and then we tried selling our clothes at three different stores. None of them would take our clothes because they were too "old" or "faded". Some of it was stuff I got before I was pregnant and no longer fit. I guess it will all have to be sold at the rummage sale.

When we started looking it them ourselves we thought the consignment shops were crazy. While some weren't too stylish many were quite cool still.


One of her favorite activities is turning the lights on and off and saying "on" "off".

I actually found a real recipe for Red Flannel Hash. I still want the Duluth Grill cookbook.

This is one of those dishes you know Meadow is going to pick through.

I liked the hash brown-style red flannel we had a few weeks back better, but this was quite good.

Meadow's naptime was a lazy one. We have pretty much given up on the idea on selling our house this year. When she woke up she caught me eating ice cream.

There isn't time before now and the time we'd have to put it in on the market. Maybe next year. Maybe never.

We introduced Meadow to Bernie Brewer. She thought he was really cool.


Instead of housework I have been focusing on getting rid of stuff. We had planned to do a lot of this for years. We had a few bags of items to donate so I suggested a trip to the thrift store.

There's a new Goodwill on University Avenue in St. Paul, so we went there.


After we got back from thrifting and grocery shopping Meadow did not want to go inside. She wanted to stay outside and play.

She's really trying to learn to jump.

It's more of a hop, but it's darn cute.

We got all this for only $6.00. I chose Goodwill on purpose because they give you a 25% coupon when you bring in a donation. It's funny how we don't really need anything anymore so thrifting has become mostly for Meadow. 

Meadow and I tried out the Hungry Hungry Hippos. I thought this would be an easy game for her to play, but she kept trying to steal all the balls by hand. 

I made a big batch of Thai-style coconut chicken soup.

It seemed weird and way too mushroom-y, but it wasn't too bad.

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.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

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.
