A Day In The Life

Scott had to work today so it was just Meadow and I for breakfast. We have been putting Meadow to bed later which makes us stay up later and then everybody sleeps in in the morning. We ate breakfast fast to make it to the farmers market.

I accidentally brought a camera without a memory card. Oops. After  Meadow and I biked to the farmers market we went up to North Mississippi Regional Park. I wanted to scope out the area for Meadow's birthday party coming up. I let Meadow play on the playground before we headed home.

It's nice to see more things available at the market. 

That whole work thing didn't work out. It was too dang cloudy for my blue sky loving client. 

I picked up a fishing pole to go with my Wisconsin fishing license. Maybe I'll catch a fish before the end of the summer.

While Meadow napped I got to working on her birthday invites. Scott thought I was making tombstones.

That would've been quite morbid. I think these are popsicles.

Then we fixed our lights over our backyard. This looks so much better than having them draped in the branches. 

It could use a few more strands of lights.

We have been getting a lot more strawberries this year.

They have gotten a bit tart as the seasons progressed.

She's always running away from us.

I caught up to her as she made it to the front stairs.

Since I was at home and not at my shoot I made ropa vieja (with venison) with black beans and plantains maduros.

We thought Meadow would have loved this meal, but she only ate the rice and a few beans.

Actually all of the beans. I think she gets disappointed when she finds out the plantains aren't bananas.

We ended the night playing some croquet with the neighbor kids. One of them was moving away so I caved in for a few rounds.

Namekagon River Camping

Scott has been wanting to go canoe camping on the St. Croix for a few weeks. 
More like a few years. Brooke decided on the windier Namekagon River branch of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.
We thought about going last weekend, but I was thinking it might be busy because of the 4th. 
We convinced Blake and Daniel to join us so we would have one car for drop off and one car for pickup. We met Blake at at the Riverside Landing, picked him up and met Daniel at our starting point at the County Road K Landing in Trego. 
Since we started in the evening we only went 5 miles before picking our campsite for the night. We chose campsite 29.7. Campsites are free and first come first served. 
It was a nicely wooded site but had lots of poison ivy.
We would find out that would always be the case. Basically don't venture into the woods.
We brought along Meadow's walkie talkie, which was perfect since we had two boats.
Theo's not used to being around other people quite yet. Also our camps…

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.

7 Days Down, 158 Days To Go

Umm, well I ended up having a longer Christmas break than I had originally thought. It went really well until the last few days.

I had dreaded this day since we met, I always knew it was going to come, but yet I ignored that it would ever happen. Saying goodbye to Scott was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I've had to do that so many times last year and I still have to do it. If I can get through January and February and I think I will be ok, or so I keep telling myself. I took out a second loan and it got denied, so I'm still as poor as ever until I can figure out what I'm going to do. I'm so glad school starts next week, being alone all day is very hard.



I left Scott Thursday night and headed back to Little Chute, which I was glad I did. We're having some family issues concerning my dad's business and the death of his friend. It tears me up to see him like this.

I wish I could've stayed home longer. I pretty much did, I left home early Sunday mo…
