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.

Not My Normal Thanksgiving

Due to work and school I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, but I survived because my sister"s" came up to be with me. We made chicken instead of turkey. I made pie but the dog ate it. Morgan was wonderful and made everything. We were able to eat for 3 days. We did a lot of other things and I still managed to budget my money. It really stinks to be completly broke, I've never been this poor in my entire life. All my money is going towards rent which leaves me with absolutly nothing. I dream of the day my loan check comes. My battery in my camera died so I missed a lot of great photo opportunities. I got a new job doing stock at American Eagle. Menards found out before I told them. I've never seen my manager so sad. I did a lot of knitting during my "Thanksgiving break". I made a scarf for a girl at work and a washcloth for Brittany. I decided I'd model the scarf. I'm still working hard on Scott's sweater. I'm probab

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.
