Blake's Back and Meadow's a Girl Scout Daisy

Blake's like a union leader or something. It takes him to Minneapolis from time to time.

He flew back from Dallas and decided to stay for the weekend before heading back to Duluth.

We decided to go to the Midtown Global Market in hopes of getting beer and food. The brewery was packed for a Twins game, so we just got food.


Blake dined at Meadow's restaurant and I overheard him saying this was the worst service ever and that he was going to give his review on Yelp.

 All we had in our house for breakfast was oatmeal. I suggested we try Mystic Lake Casino for their champagne brunch. 

 I remembered it being as good as Black Bear, but the last time I was here was when Theo was 3 weeks old.

That was not true. No place compares to Black Bear's breakfast buffet.

 While Theo napped Blake, Meadow and I went to the Baaken Museum. Any time there's crafts, Meadow will be there.

 Meadow and Blake had fun hooking up the electricity for old Minneapolis.



We played around in the garden before heading home. 

Back at home we did some Cosmic Kids with Meadow.


Brooke went out with friends and the rest of us watched the boob tube. Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse now that I remember. It was so good.

Meadow read that if you cut an apple in half you have a star.

A few days later we had a Girl Scout get together at the Peace Garden.

Mr. Theo has to walk and read as usual.



We had gotten word that there was a girl scout ceremony at the park like the day before.

We knew there was a ceremony for the 2nd graders, but Meadow accidentally got involved with it.


Theo was excited for the ceremony.

It was supposed to be a bridging ceremony for the Daisy's to become Brownies. Meadow is still a Daisy this year.

After the ceremony there was a potluck and pizza.

And cake.


Meadow sat with her friends. 

Sadly we left these cookies behind.

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
