A January Friendsgiving

Scott had been working nights all week while I picked up extra hours/days. Today he finally got a chance to sleep in.

I had to shoot five gyms in the immediate area plus two further afield at 10 pm every night this week. Some nights I wasn't home until four or five in the morning. I was pooped.

Meadow and I had poached eggs on avocado toast for breakfast.

While Scott still slept I finished up the guest room repaint.

Thanks, bear. I had painted it during the week. I got the two coats done while Brooke touched up my work.

So long Blueberry Popover walls.

Meadow then needed a bang trim.

We were going to have a January Friendsgiving, but first Meadow wanted to make a tent behind one our chairs. I guess we didn't need to build a tent after all.

The Tandoori Turkey (we skipped the turkey bag and covered it with Silpats for the last two hours) had already been cooking for hours when we started all the sides. Curried-cumin potatoes.

With curried cauliflower. You get the idea.

With all the kids coming we designated the breakfast nook the "kids table."

Whoops. Even though I doubled the naan recipe I came up two short.


The kids got served first.

Too cute.

Meadow was raring to go.

Aaron wasn't too sure about this "kids table" idea.

We also need to finish the ceiling in this room.

Another great Friendsgiving feast.

Sorry. This is the best picture of the whole gang that I got, Anna.

Soon Tyler and Emma will be putting their house on the market. They plan on living on the road for  a while. All I have to say is that they better be back for Freaster or Friendsgiving.

Anna and Aaron were the first to go. Olive and June just wanted to keep on playing and playing. Maybe they know they won't see us much in the not too distant future.

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.

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

Broken Bones and Labor Day

As you can see I am wearing a sling. Why you ask? Well it all started Thursday morning when I being the nice person that I am decided to help out Scottie and his roomates move into their new house. Everyone had gone back to their old house to get more stuff and I stayed behind to finish unpacking things out of my car. I was walking back to my car and thought it would be faster if I went in between a trailer and a van. Being the clumsy person that I am I somehow tripped in the process, ripping my jeans as well. Not thinking I had broken my arm I continued to carry things into to the house. My arm did hurt a little, but I thought it was no big deal. I had to leave for work. When I got home I noticed a huge bump on my elbow, I became worried at this point and called my mom. She said it was probably just bruised. I put ice on it as I was driving, when I got to the mall I saw the bump had gotten bigger. I was really concerned now so I thought I would go to first aid and see if someone the
