Kite Festivals and Late Night Chinese Takeout

Meadow sleeps in the strangest positions.


The two of them could really share a bed if they chose sides.

Baby breakfast.

Mama breakfast.

My ankle was finally feeling better after a wicked ankle twist back in December. Now I'm back on the Wii Fit train.

Then it was time to check out the Lake Harriet Winter Kite Festival.

I had a bad feeling as we got closer and I didn't see any kites in the air.

There were still a lot of folks out on the ice.

Theo was not impressed by the cold and lack of kites.

You could try out fat bikes thanks to the bike shop near our condo, Farmstead Bike Shop.

Theo was still not in the mood. Truth be told, the little guy and I were a bit under the weather.

We tried, but couldn't get the kites to stay up long.

We walked around and people watched instead.

Eventually there was enough wind for a little kite flying.

Check out that homemade kick sled.



Some kites were successful but none of the big guys were out.


Before we could leave Meadow had to leave her mark on the lake.


I had guacamole for lunch.

It was supposed to be a snack withe leftover soup, but Brooke basically ate it all.




Meadow and I ran to the library quick before it closed.


I love cuddling with these tiny tykes.

Since Scott and the kids were sick we were lazy the rest of the day.

Eventually we got hungry and ordered Chinese takeout at like 9:00.

It hit the spot.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.

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.

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 Su
