At Home in March (And Ice Skating in Maple Grove)

 

The kids asked for crepes for breakfast. 

 I have to get my crepes between batches. 

Our main cast iron skillet has gotten to the point that we can actually use it for crepes!
 
We found tenants for our downstairs rental and after 6 months of working and house projects we were ready to take a break and just play. Our unit needs work but it can wait. 
 
I think we were playing hide and seek before Brooke and Meadow decided to go an adventure.
 
With ice skating still on our minds and only one rink still open we had to get one last skate in. 

Just Meadow and I went up to the ice skating loop in Maple Grove. Because of the late season and warm weather there was hardly anyone here. 

Always trying new tricks. I told her I would sign her up for classes.


When the zamboni came out we took a playground break. 

Only kid at the playground too.

Once the ice was ready she was back to doing her tricks
 
This kid always wants to do her tricks.
 

Theo and I built some epic Lincoln Log cabins while they ice skated.

Gotta say our Grand Hotel turned out pretty, pretty good.

 When they got back we were on to building block cities.

I love that Meadow is finally old enough to play more adult games with me. She loved Scrabble. 

The next morning we ate big pancakes. What a weekend of breakfasts!

Meadow got a sewing book at the library and wanted help making a pillow. 

It was finally warm out which means lots of melting snow. The kids put on their rain suits and had some fun.

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
