Today I finished building an owl box and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I followed instructions from Four Oaks Crafts and they were pretty good. I’m not the most skilled when it comes to building things, so I’m excited it turned out. Why did I create an owl box? Well, I hear […]
Land of 10,000 lakes and where I call home.
With a gap in the blizzard I tried to dig out the driveway. I did it but it’s not the best job. More snow is on the way too!
Lily and I went outside to enjoy the blizzard today. Lots of snow and lots of wind. It was fun for a little while but that wind & snow eventually hurts your face. Don’t let this picture trick you though, it’s much worse out there than it looks like.
All this snow makes it easy to find Easter eggs. White ones would be so much more fun!
I went with my daughter’s 3rd-grade class to the Mill City Museum today and it was great. This was my first time visiting and I was amazed at how much there was to do and how much there was to learn. I know it was a field trip for the kids, but I enjoyed it very […]
Lily’s second grade class, and myself as a chaperone, went to visit the City of Watertown today and learned all about how things work around here. They got to sit in the back of a police car, learn about how emergency responders work and their tools, learn about the water/sewer system, and more. I learned […]
The recent heavy rains in the area has forced the South Fork Crow river in and around Watertown, MN to spill out of its banks. It’s only minor flooding at this time and shouldn’t get too much worse. The good news is that so far, all areas under water aren’t that important. The city has […]
For the first time in years we went to Valleyfair. I’m a thrill ride fan so I was hoping to hit up all the coasters, but it was also Lily’s first visit so there were plenty of new kid rides that I knew I’d be trying out. We picked a great day as it wasn’t […]
Hula Berries look like strawberries and taste like pineapple. Really?! We saw them at Home Depot and I really wanted to buy some, but didn’t. I wonder if they really taste like pineapple. Hopefully we can find some at the store to try first.
I drive by Paisley Park twice a day and the memorial outside continues to grow. There’s more balloons, more flowers, more gifts, more purple. There’s so much to see when you visit. There are so many trinkets, so many messages, so much love everywhere you look. It’s amazing how Prince’s music has affected so many […]
