The Monday Menu: June 15, 2009

You know it’s your birthday when: A. A new immersion blender shows up at your house B. Your mom shows up with a sewing machine and a car full of FREE plants to plant all around your house and diagram plans from a landscaper as to where to place them C. A growler of beer […]

The Monday Menu: June 8, 2009

We went to the Walker Saturday for First Free Saturdays with Tiff (who happens to be married to a MN athlete of the month). Kola Nut and Kiwi made kites as part of the activities provided by the center for Up, Up and Away in combination with the Lighter than Air exhibit, and I haven’t […]

The Monday Menu: June 1, 2009

My irises continue to bloom. The garden continues to grow. It’s been a busy weekend.

It resulted in an impromptu trip to a restaurant where someone other than me did the dishes. That alone was worth it that day, and we made it through the […]

The Monday Menu: May 4, 2009

It’s May! Where did April go? I remember when I was planning for our snowboarding trip the first weekend of April, and now here we are in May, already preparing for summer. This has been a busy weekend full of gardening, baby births (welcome, Baby Wales!), bridal showers and benefit concerts. I have barely had […]
