Dress of the week January 15th !

Good morning Ladies ! I am back after a two week break. I got so busy last weekend I did not get time to write to you ! On the 3rd the kids went back to school after the Christmas break. I think they were all ready for it ! It was a very cold week ! On Friday it reached minus 16 f or minus 27c !! That morning i video messaged my cousin in Perth Australia to chat and tell him about the weather extremes! It was 97f (36c ) with him !! Just 113f difference! Saturday was a day of work around the house . We did a project in our sons room which I will take photos of later for you to see. In the evening we had our friends Brandon , his Fiance Josette and his daughter Maddi over for dinner and games. We ordered pizza and it was very good! During the evening they announced a date for their wedding !!! They will become husband and wife on May 7th and we are looking forward to it now. She has her dress picked out and had a lovely day finding it with her mom and sister.

On Sunday  morning i woke  up  with  an upset  stomach.   I stayed  home  from Church as a   precaution  and   layed  low  for the  rest of the  day. It was a  good  decision  and I  kept  away from  everyone else.  I was   much  better  on  Monday morning  and  was able to go to  work.  on  Monday our oldest  son  had  a  choir  concert at  the  high school. They all did  really well  for  the  hour  we  were   there. 

Wednesday  evening  the  kids  had   church class . During  class  i stopped at  a  local store  and  bumped into  my old  neighbor  Patricia ! She  was  so excited to see  me  and  gave me a  big  hug  right away !   She really  misses  our  family next  door , The new  couple are  nice  but  are  busy with work  a lot of the time.   We  agreed  to  have  them over  to visit one these  upcoming  weekends.  I was  glad  when Friday came !   The  two older  kids  had sleepovers that night  at friends  houses.   We  completed  the  project  in our sons room  last night!   I was at the  thrift store  recently  and  had to take this  cup home with me !

Dress of the week Jan 1st !!

Good  morning  Ladies !  It  seems   really  strange  to  say   that it is  January  1st .  I  want to   wish you all a   very  happy   new  year    for  the    12  months  ahead .   The  last   12  were   pretty much   dealing with  and  getting  through a  pandemic,   As  someone  who is  an optimist ,  I  hope for  a   bright    and  happy  2022  for all of us.  

 

2022!

In my last  post   December  18th   we   just  had our  gas  stove  installed .   I have to  say it  was  a  great  decision  to  go ahead  with it!  we were   so used to  gas  , that we  felt it  was  the  right  choice to   go ahead with .   On  Sunday 19th it  was  the   4th Sunday of  Advent. We  had    nice  family  time after  church.   The  new  work  and  school  week   came  around  quick    but   started to  go by  fast .  The  kids  finished  school   on  Wednesday  for the Christmas  season.   On Thursday  I had  our  work  party    that  started  at  noon  until  2pm.  It was  a   fun time to mingle !  On the  way  home  I did  a   little  last  minute   shopping (  guilty!) In the  early  hours of  Christmas  eve  morning , santa  made an early  visit to our  home as is  tradition   in our  half  German  household  !   The  kids   stockings   were   filled  and  they also  got  some  other  wrapped   gifts   he dropped off!   There   was  excitement  for a while then we   had  a   nice   brunch.  At  about  3pm  after  packing up  we  made  the  2   hour  journey to the  in-laws ! 

 

After  a   few   stops  we  arrived  at  5.40 pm  in time  for   dinner. Unfortunately my one  Brother -in-law  and  his  wife  and  family had  flu   and  could  not make it .   A  few   family gifts  were   exchanged   that evening as  well !   Christmas  morning  came  and  santa   had  showed  up  at Grandma’s  house also !!  What  a  guy !   We  did  get to  see  my other  brother-in-law , his  wife  and  their adorable  8  month old  son  also . After  Christmas   morning  church  we  had  a  nice  lunch   and  chatted for a  few  hours. In  the  evening  we   made   the  journey  back  home.  We  did   bring  back more  than we  came with !    Sunday  was  a   nice  day  to relax.   On Tuesday  our    youngest  got  his  cast  off   after   his  shinbone  fracture   and  they  put  him in  a  boot    as  the  last  part of  his  rehabilitation .  He  can  now   walk with the   boot and take it off at   night   and  have a   proper  shower or  bath!  He is   doing  so well! Also  on Tuesday the older  kids  and  their friend Maddi  went to  see  Spiderman.  Yesterday    we   went out  for   brunch to one of our  favorite  restaurants   Perkins  for a   nice   brunch treat! Then we  made  a  nice   dinner  where  the  kids   contributed  to   make. We  made it  to  midnight by  watching  some old  tv   shows. I Am  growing  weary of  the    countdown  tv  specials  with bands  and  individuals performing  I do not  even know ! Is anyone else on the same  page  with me ? !

Dress of the week December 18th !

Good morning Ladies ! I got so busy last week that I did not get a chance to sit down and post, my apologies ! I can review it here. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas ! Just a week to go until Christmas day ! We have had some strange weather this past week alone. Last Friday we had a snowstorm that dropped 15 inches on us ! Saturday and Sunday were relatively mild in comparison . Early Wednesday it got close to 60 degrees F and snow melting . Then we had a windstorm , thunder and lightening . We were blessed though it did not do too much damage. I am counting my blessings after seeing the devastation and loss of life in Kentucky. God bless all of them affected.

On Thursday the 7th I took off and brought our son to the hospital for his latest appointment after fracturing his shinbone. He was in a full leg cast for a few weeks . When we got there they started to take it off. They use a small saw called an oscillator that cute the smallest amount into the cast. It was a little scary for my son but between myself and the technician we calmed him down ! It was good to have his leg free for a half hour or so. They did x-rays and the doctor was happy with how it is healing. They put a smaller cast on below the knee and said he could put more pressure on it walking. He is able to get around on it . He still uses a wheelchair for school. On Saturday we had friends , 3 couples and some of their kids over for lunch and to hang out for a few hours . It was a nice time ! Then in the afternoon we decorated !

On  Sunday  we  celebrated  the  3rd  week  of  Advent  or  Gaudete   where  the  rose colored  candle is  lit  and  the  priests  wear rose  color  vestments,  It means  rejoice , the   birth of  our Lord is  very near !   After   church it  was  a  pretty   relaxing  day .  Monday  started a  new  work  and  school  week .  On Wednesday  the   kids  Church  class   was  cancelled  due to   high   winds  and  possible  tornado  activity  but   Thank  God it did  not transpire.   On Thursday  evening our  Church  had  their  advent  reconciliation or  confession  night  with  6   visiting  priests and  our own  parish priest  hearing  the  sacrament.   On Friday I  was  off  as  we had  some workers  helping out with our  basement  bedroom/bathroom  project. One  guy  was  doing  the  electrical  rough in , running all the  wires . The other  was  adding heat  vents to  both rooms so it is   ready  before   sheetrock.    The  same  guy  also added a   new  gas  line  from our  mechanical room  to the new gas  stove  we  ordered! I am  so  excited to be using  a  gas  stove  again, I could  not  get  used to the  electric  one after  6 months  of living  here. This  was  the  time to do it  as  the  new  bedroom is  directly below  the  kitchen and  the  ceiling   would be inaccessible later.   Someone is  lined up to take our  electric stove. We  have  some  chores  today  before  Christmas !

Dress of the week December 4th !

Good  morning  Ladies !   It is  hard  to  believe  but it is   now  December , one of  my  most  favorite   months of the  year .  It is  the  month  we  welcome our lord  and  savior  Jesus Christ .  We  are  having   some  nice  weather  temperatures  here   for  Minnesota ,  We  dont  have  any  snow  on the   ground ,  but  we  are   promised  a  little   bit over   the  weekend . Thursday  was a  beautiful  day in the  low   50s  and   sunshine !  

Christmas bucket list

Last  Sunday  was    a   day of    quiet  family   time   after   the  busyness  of  thanksgiving.   The  kids   had  Monday off  school   to give  them    a   nice   long   late  November  mini  holiday.   Our  little  guy  who is in a  cast  due to   fracturing  his   shinbone    went  back to  school  Tuesday  after  being  off   for  over  a  week .  He is using his  wheelchair   and  had  lots of  attention  from the other  kindergartners  when he  returned! The  innocence of  little  kids !  Wednesday  the kids   also  returned  to  church class.    Thursday  was  a  pretty  normal  day of  work  and  home life .   On  Friday  I   went    food   shopping  , and  when there  I    seen Christmas  cards   and  realized  I  need to  get  them sent overseas quickly !  I will write  them  today .   Also today we  are  having   a  few   couples and  their  kids  over  for  lunch and  to   catch up. It  should  be   fun  !

Later we  might  go out  shopping for a   new  gas  stove .  We  have  electric  right  now    but  have  been  so used to gas over the  years   that  we   want to  see  what is  available.  Which do you like, gas or  electric?    I also hope  to  see  some hallmark   Christmas  movies, they are  a   guilty  pleasure of  mine !!

Dress of the week November 28th

Good afternoon Ladies ! I hope you are doing well on this Sunday . We are coming to the end of a 4 day weekend after celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday. I got a little time to sit down and write my post !

As  I left  you last  week  we  were   getting  ready to see   the orthopedic  doctor in  relation  to our  sons   fractured   leg  from the  previous  Tuesday.  We  both  went to the  appointment  on  Tuesday  morning  and  they took  a  look  at  the  leg.  They cut off the   splint  (soft cast)  and checked  things out.  Then  the  doctor  figured  he   needed  a    hard   cast  .  So  he  was  able  to  pick out  the  color  and  went  with  red.  It  was  interesting   watching the   technician  putting it on .  The  mesh  wraps  around  easily  and  then  it  hardens  pretty fast.  We  set up  a  new  appointment  for  December  7th.   we  were also able   to get  a  wheelchair   that day.   We use  it  when  needed around  the  house.  But it  is  so nice to have  when  we   leave!   He  is  getting    better  at  getting  around  himself ,  and  will go  back to  school Tuesday.

On Wednesday  evening   we  started  getting   things  ready  for  the  arrival of  our   guests  on Thursday.   We  got  the   extra  tables  and   chairs  set up  and  had  a  nice  evening  just  the  6  of us.   On  thanksgiving  morning  My  Mother and  father in law   arrived   first  with  their   side  dish , then a  little  later  my  brothers-in -law  and  their  families   showed  up .  In all  there  were   18  of us   and  we   had  a  lovely  family   day of  food   drink   and  laughter. We  had   5 people  stay over  in total( Mom  and  Dad -in- law  and  Brother in law   his  wife  and  baby son)     The  baby’s Mom unfortunately  woke  up  with earache  and  after   getting   checked   had  an internal  and   external   ear infection.   In the  afternoon we  made  a   bunch of  cookies ,  a  black Friday tradition! 

On  Saturday   we  had   breakfast  at  a  new   restaurant  in the  morning ,  and  did a    bunch of   work  around  the   house   and   got   some  inflatables  and   Christmas  lights  installed.

Dress of the week November 20th !

Good morning Ladies ! I started that first previous sentence on Saturday morning and that is as far as I got ! It is now Monday. last Saturday (13th) I had just watched the funeral online of my Uncle who passed to eternal life. I was able to compose myself and after that got busy with a bunch of chores and also we worked on the basement where we are building a new bedroom and bathroom for our daughter. it is at the framing stage and now needs plumbing electrical and heat /cool added . In the evening we had friends come over and had a nice evening with them. On Sunday after church there was a pancake breakfast and that is a popular event . In the afternoon I printed up a photo of my Uncle who passed , put it in a frame and put it on the remembrance table at our church as November is the month of the holy souls where we pray for those departed from this life and those in purgatory who need our prayers.

Monday  and   Tuesday  started off  normal   then  at  9.30 am I got a   call from  the   school  that   our  youngest  had  a  playground  accident  and  had   swelling  on his  leg. I left  work and    went to  pick him up ,  he  was in a  wheelchair in a  bit of  discomfort.  The   nurse  and  I  got  him loaded up  and  I  took him to  Childrens  hospital in St. Paul.  We  waited   a  while, He  was  feeling  ok after  a  while  with his  leg up in  a  chair.  We   then got   x rays   done  and  the  diagnosis  when  we  seen the   doctor  was  that it  was  a  shinbone   fracture. So they  commenced  to  putting a  splint in which is a  heavy  duty  bandage   put  together in  4  parts. We  wheeled  him to the  car  and  got  ready for  our new  life  experience!  He  did  really well. I had   enquired about  temporary  wheelchairs  for   our  son  but  they  did  not  know about any. 

 

We  got  him  home  and there was a  lot of  carrying   needed, he is  too young  for   crutches. He  had a  tough time  falling  asleep the  first   night  even  with the  medication  he  was  taking.   he  did  drop off  though. The  next  day I was   busy with him  , and  also calling  our primary  doctor, insurance  company and  anyone  else  we  could to  find a   chair  for  him. It was a   bit of a  runaround  and  we  eventually had to order a   chair online  , it  has  not  shipped  as  yet. He  has   spent  his  days sitting on our  new  couch with  footrest , and  generally  giving us orders!  He  needs  help to  use   the  bathroom,  but is  a trooper.  Saturday was  a  day of   keeping  busy, getting  ready for  thanksgiving and  minding our patient. He is  going to see the  specialist  tomorrow so we  will see  what  that entails going   forward.

Dress of the week November 13th .

Good   morning  Ladies, I  come  to  you this   morning  with a  hole in  my   heart .  On Tuesday of  this  week   I got  a  call  from   my  sister  that   my dear  uncle  Peter   had   passed  away into  eternal life. He   was  diagnosed   with  dementia  earlier  in the  year   and  then  from  July   started  going  downhill  quickly . He  was  staying at  home  until  6  weeks  ago  and  then  had to   go into a   nursing  home.  It  was   tough  on the   family, his   wife  and   3   kids , as  towards   the  end  he  did  not  know  them.  At  the  weekend they gave  him Morphine  and   he  was  administered the  last  rites  as  is   custom in  our   Church to   prepare  us  for  the  afterlife  with God.  He  was  a  man of  deep  faith, an  inspiration to all who  knew   him .  He   would   do  anything   for  you  if  you were in  need . He  was  a  great handyman  and   could  do  anything in the  home   from  plumbing  to  electrical  carpentry. He  also loved   working on cars.  May he   rest in peace , in the  presence of God.

last  Sunday  was  a   relaxing   day .  After  working  pretty  hard on  Saturday  we  all took it  easy. Our   son had a  friend  stay over  after   celebrating  his   birthday  the  night  before  by  going   bowling.  They  were awake  late   but its ok once in  a  while !   We  watched some   football  also.   Monday  was  back to  routine .  Tuesday  towards the  end of the  work day I got the  sad   news of my Uncle passing.  I  had to   go to  a  dental  appointment   at  6pm  that evening  still. My  dental  hygenist  Claudia  was   very  compassionate  on  hearing  my sad  news.  We  had  a  good   chat  as   she  did  her   work(  well you can  guess she  did most of the  talking  and  it  was  lovely hearing  her  stories  about  loved ones  she lost)    On  Wednesday our   youngest  got  new  glasses  as   his  prescription  changed , for the  better   I am  happy to say.   He  has  cool   blue  and  yellow  frames!   The  kids  also had  church class  that  night. 

Thursday night I was able to relax and reflect on things. Sometimes the tears would flow out of nowhere when I would think about my Uncle. I am an emotional person at the best of times, shedding tears at a sad movie so you can imagine me when a loved one passes! Friday morning we got our first snow ! It started to form on the grass and roofs but as the day went on it dissappeared. Last night we went out to eat at a local restaurant. This morning I was able to watch the funeral on live stream as I was not able to attend. It was a beautiful Mass of sending to eternal life.

Dress of the Week November 6th !

Good  morning  Ladies  and  happy  November to you ! The  year  is   going  by so  fast   and  now  that   halloween has  passed   the   next   big one  for  me  is  Christmas !  But  I am looking  forward  to Thanksgiving  coming as  we  are  hosting it this  year in our  new   home.  The  weather  has  been  beautiful  for   early  November   in Minnesota .  The  more   fall i  can  get   the   better ! 

November 1

  Last  Saturday  we  went to an  Orchard to  meet  extended   family (18 0f us !)   for  annual photos.  Ever  since  they were  young,  my Mother-in-law  has   been  getting  pictures of  all the   Grandkids on this one   bench in the   orchard.  This  year   we  arrived  and  the   bench  is  gone  !!    They  did  some   rearranging  there  but   we   found  another   pretty  spot  to  take   the   pics  and  it  all  went  well.  The  apple  picking  was  finished for the   season but  you could  go  into their  shop  for  some  and  other   treats.  It  was  not  a  cold  day  but  as  soon as  I  got into the  shop  I  knew i needed a   hot  apple   cider !  It did  not   dissapoint  and   was   so  good.   After   the  orchard  we    went  to  a   kid   friendly   winery  about    10   minutes  away.   It  had  outdoor   seating  and  the  day  was  nice  to sit  out in.  They also  had a   mobile  brick oven Pizza    truck  on site  to tide us over   before  dinner.   The  kids   were   able to play  board  games  or   run in the    big  field   attached   and  we  were  able to keep an eye on them. There  were  soft   drinks  for the  kids ,  and  most  adults  sampled  their   wines   which  were   good  to sit  and   chat   with.   We   went  to a   nice   new   restaurant  a  few   miles  away  for   dinner   . They  had   pull  tabs   there  where u  need  to  match  3   symbols. My   Sister-in -law won $100 !  We  discussed     Thanksgiving  plans  and  then  parted to go our  seperate ways  after a  nice   day.

  Sunday  was  a  nice   quiet  day . We  did   not  do  anything  too  strenuous!   Then it  was   back to  work  and   school  for  us  all   for  another  week.   On Friday   our  oldest son  turned 12!!   I still cannot  believe it !  We  went out to  a     new   restaurant  for  dinner.     On  Saturday  morning (Yesterday)we  took  delivery  of  a   new   couch !  We  splurged  a  bit .   Then   we  went  and  got  some  lumber  for our  basement  project !  We   are  making  a   bedroom  and  bathroom   down there  to ad d  more  space and  give our  daughter  her  bedroom.   We also  did  yardwork  cleaning  up leaves.   Then in the  evening       there  was    bowling  for our son  along  with friends  to  celebrate  his   birthday.   Quite  a  day !!

Dress of the week October 30th !

Good  morning  Ladies !   We  are  winding   down  towards the  end  of  October  and  it  has   gone by  so  fast  !  It is  one my  favorite   months  of the   year   with  the   weather   cooling   and  the   leaves  changing   color.  It  is  also  that   nice   period   between  summer   and winter .   The  weather   is   kind  of  where  it    should  be  for  Minnesota at  this  time  of  year    with  temps  in  the   mid  30s   at  night  and    warming  to the   50s   during  the   day. 

Minnesota dirt road…..

As  I  said  last   week we made  the  one  hour   drive   from  our  house  to   Pinehaven  farm  for  a  lovely  morning out . We  left   home    soon  after   8am  and  were  there   close   soon  after   the  opening  time. We  got  to  see  the    farm  animals   and it  was   nice  that  the   kids   got to  feed  the  goats   and   baby  calves. They  had  a     few  different   breeds  of  cows  and   sheep you  would  not  normally  see.   I  grew  up  helping out on  my  grandparents  farm  so had an  interest in all the   animals along  with the  kids!    The   kids   then   went   to   the   inflatable   bouncy   patch   and  had   fun there.    Then  it   was  on  to the  giant  slide   . Our   youngest   was  a  little   scared  at   first  but  soon  was   enjoying it!  There  was  also  a  zip line   and    also a   corn pit  to  play  in.   Our  oldest   son  seen paintball  and  had  to have a   go at  it!    Then  we  got on the  trolley   and  went out to  the  pumpkin  field   for the  kids  to  pick  theirs  out .  Our  14  year old  daughter did  not  want to  get one, is it a  sign she is  not our little  kid  anymore?  We were  then  ready to  leave   after  an   enjoyable   few  hours.  We  stopped  at a   nearby  restaurant  before   driving  back   home. 

We   had   time  to  relax  after     getting  home   for a  few   hours .  Then   as it  was   our  anniversary the   2  of  us   went  out  on a  little   date  to a  new   restaurant   about   10  miles  from  home. It  was a  lovely  time   and  a  great  end  to the  day!  On  Sunday  there  was  Church  in the  morning ,  the   afternoon   and   evening  was  relaxing . The   kids  were  back in  school   Monday  after  their mid  term  break . Church  class  resumed  on  Wednesday   after  a  break. 

Today  we  are  going  to an  apple  orchard  to  meet  the   extended  family,   The  great  Grandpa will join us  also  which is  so  nice  to  see  him  getting out  and  about.

Dress of the week October 23rd !

Good  morning  Ladies !  I  hope  you  are   doing  well  today, You join  me  on  a   special  day  as it is  our   17th  wedding  anniversary !  The  time  has   gone  by  so   fast    and  4   kids  later there  has   been  a  lot of   change ,  not  least   our   4   kids! We  have  also  moved  state, we   were  living on Long  Island  NY  after   getting   married   then  18 months  later  moved  to my Beau’s  home  state Minnesota . It was another   new   experience for me  to move to  midwest   but  I  was  received  with open arms  by  the locals. The  wedding  day  started  off  raining {  a familiar  sight  for  all  my Irish Family and  friends  attending !)  Then in the   evening the   sun   came  out   beautifully   as    we   were  at  the  reception. We  are   blessed  !

Last  week  I    let  you  know  that  we   had   covid in the   house . By  Saturday   she  was  not  contagious anymore  so we   were getting  back to  normal.  Then our oldest  son  started   showing  symptoms and   went in  Saturday to  get  tested.  Sure  enough on Monday he  came  back  positive !!   So  we  got  on with it ,  he  isolated  from  us  as  much a s  an 11yr  old  can  and  stayed off  school all  week. He   was  able to  keep up  online.  Last Saturday  we were   busy at  home    keeping  up  with all  the  usual   chores . We also  started shutting  down our  swimming  pool  for  the   winter.  Se  you in the  summer!  Sunday  after   church we  went  for  coffee  and  donuts. It  was a   relaxing  rest of the  day as  Sunday  is a  day of  rest  for us.
