Meadow goes back to school Brooke's Always Productive Vol. 978

Meadow had her first day of school on Wednesday. Of course it also happens to be below zero.


 

Along with Meadow going back to school and needing masks, I also made her some headbands and attached buttons to hold the straps. 

Perfect so her little ears don't get hurt.

The kids requested Chocolate Rye Pancakes for this Valentine's breakfast.

So sweet. In two ways.

I guess Brooke got Meadow a Valentine's shirt.

Nope, I got her the fleece lined leggings with hearts on the knees. She already had the shirt.

Mmmm...the kids' favorite.

You know it's cold outside when you can't see out the window. 

Meadow was up to her crafty self and made Theo a batman mask. She made a wrong cut and patched it up otherwise it looks awesome.

I made Brooke some peanut butter-peanut butter cup-chocolate ice cream for Valentine's day.

It was delicious.

When you live in a small place your bedroom becomes your sewing room. I also prefer sewing standing up. 

I'm not sure if she's complaining, but I love our small footprint condo lifestyle. Do not miss our big old house.

Not complaining. I also love our tiny place, but having a permanent space for projects would be nice. 

With extra fabric from making Blake's camp pillow I made myself one. Theo needs a pillow now and I was going to make him one, but decided he could have my tiny one and I'll make myself a bigger one. 

We had a late launch and thought we'd skip dinner. I guess we got hungry So everyone (except me) had boxed mac and cheese for dinner.

Another Marine on St. Crox-Stillwater Adventure

It's our favorite time of year: berry picking season. I think that's more of Brooke and Meadow thing, but I'll go along with it. Meadow has been asking to go for weeks. I'm not sure how she knew about it since she hasn't gone since she was a wee little one.  I made a giant breakfast before our adventure, plaintain and avocado toast, hash, eggs, cherries and strawberries. Lots and lots of blueberries as far as the eye can see. We went back to our go to berry picking farm, The Berry Patch. "Look a tiny one for me!" Meadow did an awesome job picking. She helped the whole time when she wasn't eating any. I complained and ate the whole time. We quit when the bucket was this high. Apparently we forgot that you pay by the bucket and not pint. We could have easily gotten another pint in there. As I was taking Meadow to the bathroom I noticed the raspberries looked really good. We decided at $5 a pint we would onl

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
