Dress of the week February 26th !

Good  morning  Ladies ! It is  another  cold  morning  here  1 degree  as I look  at  my  countertop   thermometer .  The  week  started  so  nice  with Sunday being in  the  mid  thirties,  It  felt really good  with the  sunshine!   After  that it  all about  wrapping up in  layers  as you  went outside. 

 

As I said last Sunday , we stayed at a hotel nearby as the kids were off on Monday for presidents day. We checked in at 3:30 pm and our rooms were poolside, meaning you just open a sliding door and and you can get right to the pool area in the middle of the hotel. The kids changed fast and were in the pool immediately ! There are kiddy splash pools , but we are now beyond that for our youngest now . He is in the big pool and loves the water like the rest of his siblings. There is a big slide that they went down and had fun with. I put on my suit as well and got wet too! I also spent a little time in the hot tub . At 6 we went to a nearby Perkins restaurant for dinner. They were so understaffed , The greeter Lady also had to clean tables to get people seated. I felt bad for her. But everyplace seems to be looking for staff in the catering business now. We had a nice meal when it did come out. We went back to the hotel and the kids got back in the pool, us adults just sat and watched them play this time.

On Monday morning  it was  an early   check out  as  our  son  had a   doctors  appointment . It  was a  fun little  getaway  though !   The  week  went  back to normal Tuesday  with    work and  school.   On Wednesday we  got a   few inches of snow , just to  compliment the rest of our  snow  built up  for the past  few  months !   Last  night our  son  had a little playdate with his  friend Amelia   and  she also brought  some  girl scout  cookies  that we  purchased   from  her. They are  very tasty and  for a  good  cause.   

 

We will be  doing  some  final  prep  for our trip to Las Vegas   this weekend !  We  leave on Friday night   and will  arrive  late  , but I hope to   be up early Saturday  to see  the place !  I  am  not  sure if I will get to  write a  post but  if not  next week I will the following  week.

Dress of the week February 20th !

  Good  morning Ladies  from a  sunny balmy Minnesota !!  You  heard   right ,  it is  42  f  right now  and  sunny and  it  feels  amazing !  Lots will think I am crazy   but  when your  body is  climatized  to  sub zero  temps  this  feels  so  good.   Now where  did i put  that  sun  lotion ?!! 

 

Last Sunday  we   had a   nice  relaxing  day   and  then in the  evening  we   tuned into the  superbowl.    I enjoyed  it  for the  most  part,  The  commercials  were ok ,  half  time  show  pretty good  ,  and  was an exciting  finish with  the  Rams  winning  by one score  to  win  the  trophy.   Monday  came  around   fast   and  it  was  back to the  grind!  It  was also Valentines day( or St. Valentines day  as I first  remember it  being called )   A nice little  picture  below ! 

 

 

Valentines 2022

We stayed  home  and  had a  nice  dinner  with the  whole  family.   Wednesday  was  church class  night  for the  kids .   There is always a  bit of  driving  that  night as   they go at  two different  times , but that is  ok.   On   Friday our  daughter  went to a  friends  for a  sleepover.  On Saturday   my in-laws  came  and  brought us  sauer kraut   and  dumplings  a  German    favorite, I have  gotten used to it  after  marrying into a part   German  family  !     My Father -in -law is  really good  at  making  them !   They  stayed  for a  few  hours  and  surprised the  kids with a  trip to Las Vegas  over  spring  break!  We  knew about it already,  but it  was   exciting  for  the  kids .  We  go on  March 4th  and  return March 10th !  It is a  more  family  friendly place  these  days  and I am interested to  see it  at  first  hand !   It will be  good to  experience  different  temperatures! 

 

We  are   still  working on our  basement  project ,  here are  a few  photos 

 

 

The  kids  are  off school  tomorrow   for  presidents day  and we  are staying in a  hotel for  tonight  with a  swimming park that has some nice  slides!     We  will be  checking in at  3:30 this afternoon.

Dress of the week February 13th !

Good morning Ladies ! You join me from another chilly Minnesota morning. it is -5f right now . Yesterday we woke up to rain and 36f. The rain is the worst this time of year , after its done it freezes and causes icy spots for driving in. It is better if it stays just under the freezing mark. We are promised a few days of cold weather going forward.

Happy Valentines day 2022

As  I  said  last  week  I  tested  positive  for  Covid  and   had to isolate  from  the  family.  It  was  tough  but  we  got  through . On  Monday I was  able to go  back to  work    and  was  advised to  wear a   mask for  the  week  as I  did .  Even  at home  I  stayed  away  for the  most  part  from   everyone   just  in   case,  I  did  not  want  to  get  anyone  sick. Wednesday  the  kids   were  back in  church  class . As  the  week   went on  I  was   getting  back to   normal.   I  was  just  happy I  didn’t   get    any  adverse  side  effects.   

 

On  Friday   night  our  daughter  had  a    bunch of  girlfriends over  for  a  sleepover.   I  made  them breakfast  on   Saturday morning  before  they  went their  separate  ways.  We   worked on the  basement    yesterday,  prepping the  walls  with  sheetrock  mud  . It is  a 3  part  process  so  maybe will be  ready in 2  weeks  for  paint!   Today  we  went to  church   and  later  will  watch the  superbowl(I think ! )  I will let you know  below  which team I want to win!

Dress of the week February 6th !!

Good   morning  Ladies !  I am  back  again  after  another  2  week break . On  Sunday January  23rd   we  went  to late  church . We  were  down one  car  as  one  was  in the  shop  for  repairs.   On Tuesday  the  25th  I took our  son  to     a  doctor  appointment  to  see how  he  was  progressing  with  his   boot  after  fracturing  his  shinbone  in  November.  He   got  good  news  and  was  told  he  does  not  need it  anymore  and  we  walked out of  the  hospital  with both  shoes on !!   As  a treat  we  went to one of  our  favorite  restaurants  Perkins on the  way home  for  lunch ! I spent the  rest of  the  day   doing  jobs  around  the  house. (  always  stuff  to do!) 

 

February 2022

The  rest of  the  week  went  by   quickly, it  was   nice  when Friday  came.   On  Saturday  we  worked on  our  basement  bedroom /   bathroom    project.   We  added   sound insulation   in the  floor   between the upper level,  and  were   ready to  start sheetrocking!    We  borrowed  a  sheetrock  lift  which  makes it  easy to  put it on the   ceiling.  You   put  the  sheet on the  platform  and  crank a  wheel,  magic !   On  Sunday   we  went to  normal  morning  church . It  was a  nice  afternoon  to  relax . We  did  watch some  football and  the Chargers and Cincinnati made it to the   superbowl.  

 

On  Monday  it  was  another   cold  day ,  I think I am  getting  used to them  now! It  was  back to  the  regular  week.  On  Tuesday  coming  home  from  work I  started  to    feel   a  little  weak   and  got  some  chills.  I  stopped  at  target to  pick up  food  for  dinner   and it  continued  .  I   came  home   and  decided  as a  precaution  to  do a   covid   test . We  have  some  in  home  testing  kits. I  went  through  all the   steps  and at  the  end   it came  back  POSITIVE !!    I  could  not  believe  it ,  but  accepted  the  results.   I  isolated  from  the   family  after that  and  took   the  Wednesday , Thursday  and  Friday off  work.   When  everyone  was  at  work  and  school  Wednesday I  did  some  small  chores  but  after  a   bit  I  was  starting to  feel  weak  again.   I listened to  my  body  and  took it  easy !   By Friday I was  starting to  come  around again  and  got  some  things  done.   This  weekend  I  have  been  hiding  away  with  everyone  at  home !   I  kind of  feel  guilty  but it  is  necessary.   This  is  the  last  day  of  isolation  but  I   will try and    be  careful  for the   next  few  as  well.
