Dress of the week July 2nd !

Good  morning  Ladies  and wishing you  a  happy July ! I  hope  you  are  enjoying  summertime.   The  sun is  coming up   this morning and it will  be a  lovely  day. It  has  been a  lovely week  with some overnight rain helping to keep the  grass  and  flowers  blooming. I am  up  early  as  we  are  leaving  this  morning  to  visit  my in-laws. We have a  long weekend  with the 4th of July on  Monday. 

 

4th of July 2022

Thanks  for  all the  compliments  on  my  photos of  our  basement  project.  Our  daughter  is  settling into her  new  space  and loving it.  She has  a  few  friends  staying over  as  we  speak , and  they  went swimming yesterday  evening .  Last  Saturday I put  a  second  coat on  her  closet  doors  ,  they are  looking  much better.  In the  afternoon  my in-laws came and  stayed overnight.  We  went to  Saturday afternoon church.  We  then  had a  nice   dinner and  nice  time together.  On Sunday  we  had a  special day out.  Our  niece was  playing along with  her  marching  band in a  town  south of  here , Lake city which is on Lake  Pepin , which also  is on the  Mississippi river.  It is  famous  as  it is  where  water  skiing was  invented! ( I did not do any skiing while i was  there!)  We  used  it  to  celebrate  our   summer  family  birthdays , having  a  nice  picnic   as  we  watched the  parade.   It was a  lovely  few  hours  together.   We  got to  see our  15 month old  nephew  who is  walking now ! He is  growing  so fast.

 Of  course  Monday  came  around  again  !   There  was  softball  and  Baseball  practices  and  all   some  midweek  games to play.   We  went over to our  friends  house , where  they  installed  the  same  pool  we  got installed  last August !  It looks  really well.   Our  daughter  had  a double  header  game on  Thursday  and  they won both games.  Last  night   was  a fun  night to  watch all the  kids in the  pool  enjoying  themselves . I did  not  go in  myself .  We sat  back  and  watched . 

Today as  I said  we  are  going to the in-laws camper  Saturday into Sunday.  They have a  long  term lease on a   spot to put it by  a lake  2 and  a half  hours  from  here.  I am  not  sure if we  will all  stay overnight ,  but their house is a  half hour away  so we  might go there  and  the  kids  stay with Grandma  and  Grandpa in the  the  camper!   We will come  back  around Midday  tomorrow . We are invited  to our  friends  Brandon and Josette  for an adults  evening  Sunday with a  bonfire and  games . I am not sure if we will make it, but hope to after  the  travelling.  We  might go  to a  local parade on  the  4th in the  morning , and  will watch  fireworks in the  evening/night.

Dress of the week June 25th !

Good morning Ladies ! June keeps flying by at a fast pace , we have officially started summer and passed the longest day of the year ! Where is the time going ? We are starting off this Saturday morning with some rain which is needed really. It is going to brighten up later though.

Last  week I left off   with us  after  coming  back  from our  daughters  softball  tournament in Wisconsin.   On Sunday morning  we  went to  church ,  afterwards  we  went  for coffee  and  donuts  to  celebrate  all the  Dads !    We  had a   relaxing   afternoon  and I was  able to follow  my  daughters  softball tournament on an app where one of the  parents  updates   play  by  play   and  score  by score, it is  really cool to have.  They  got to the  Championship  game  and   lost  by one  run  !!   They had  won the  2  previous  tournaments  so  it is  ok to  come  second  sometimes.    Myself  and  the  boys  had  a  nice  dinner .  

  On Monday  afternoon  we   travelled  2.5 hours   to  stay  at a  hotel  before our  sons trap team    event on Tuesday.   It  was a  small  room   but  it  was   cozy.    We  arrived  at  the   event  soon  after  8am .   We  had  to  wait a  few  hours  before  he  was   ready to    go.      they  did   50   then  stopped,  then a  few  hours  later  finished  their  last  50.   Overall he  shot  61 out of  100   which was  pretty good,  but  he  was  hard on  himself  for not  shooting  more !   He  did  great!  We  left  there at  about  5pm   and  stooped  for  dinner   about an hour  from  home.   On Thursday  evening we  had  softball  and  baseball games  to attend!  

Last  night  we  went out on a  double  date with our  friends  Jordan  and  Angie. They  are a  fun  couple  and  it  had  been  about  2  months  since  we  got to  see  them.  We  had    a  lovely time  chatting   , and  catching up.  

 

The Basement  Project  completion !! 

As  promised  last  week I am including pics of our  project , the  bedroom/ bathroom  .  We  still have a  family  room to  complete  at  a  later  date  but  this  was  to give our  daughter  her own  space!  It  started  in the  depths of  winter  and  she  finally moved in  Last Sunday  night  after  getting  back from   softball. The  question was  asked  numerous  times  ” When will my  bedroom  be  finished ? ”    It is finished apart  from the  window  treatments , excuse the  green curtains in the  pics, original to the  house!  20220617_215707

This is the view looking from the family room . You can see the outside is not finished.

The  Bathroom    with  vanity  cabinet   sink  and  linen  cabinet.   We did an  accent  wallpaper  wall.   The  black  wall art  also  acts as a  robe hook   with little pivots to pull out when needed. 

20220617_215845This is the  view then for the  bathroom into the  bedroom. We  wanted to put a  door  joining the  two. 20220617_214246

The  view  from Family  room into the  bedroom, again excuse the  curtains !! 20220617_21425920220617_21431920220617_215615

That  is the  project with  the  closet also . We do have another coat to put on closet doors but that will be  easy   to finish.   I hope you enjoyed it !

When  I  left off  last  Saturday   We  were  going to be  busy  with  a  softball tournament in the  next  town over for our  daughter  .  That indeed  was  the  case They  started off on Saturday  morning  with a  loss  then won their  evening  game.    That set up  Sundays  play nicely .  They  started off with a  big  win  which  brought them to a  semi-final.   They  got a  big  win in that  game , the girls  were on  fire!  It set up a  final against the  team they  were  beaten by on Saturday.  Amazingly ,  having  been  beaten  by  5  runs the day before  the  girls  won the  tournament  with  another  big   win!!  Congratulation  to   them !  It  was  very exciting   for  them to   win it all !   

Ok  so  back to  Saturday ,    during the   games  we   got  to attend  the  graduation  party  for  our  next  door  neighbor  girl  as  she  completes   high  school  and   is off to  college in the  fall. They  had  finished  painting in their  garage  to  have it all  set  to  host  the  party,   It was  a nice  day    and  the  there  was  a  lot of  people  who turned up to honour  her. Well done  Reece !

from earlier this week …

 

Monday   morning  soon came  and  back to the  grind  !    Excitingly  we  passed our  electrical inspection on our  basement  project.   A  step closer  to  completion.  

Our   second  son  stared  an  elimination  diet this week as  he   has   food  allergies.   Certain  food  do not  agree  with him.  He  cannot  have  dairy or  wheat.    He will be on it  for  6  to  8  weeks .   Lets  hope  we   come to  a  solution  for  him  going  forward.   On Thursday  afternoon  we      got our  final  building  inspection  so   our  daughter  can  move  into  her  new   bedroom  as  soon as  we   clean  the  Bathroom  and   bedroom  ,  and  also just  a   bit of  paint  touch up.  Phew.. I am  glad  that project is  99%  done ! I will post  the  finished  pics  next  week !  Our  son  had   baseball  and  they  won  against another  town team  where he  had   schoolmates  and friends  playing against  him ! 

I might  be  sounding like a   broken  record  but  on  Friday  our  daughter   started another  weekend  tournament , this  time in  Menomonie Wisconsin.   It  is  a  1hr  20min  drive. She is spending   the  weekend  at   the  hotel,   while I  am the  parent that  drew  the  boys  to be  with!   Myself and the  boys  went  yesterday to  see  their evening  game .  They also got to  swim  at  an  outdoor  waterpark in  between  games.  We  arrived  back   at 9pm  last night. The  boys  were  ready for  bed  soon  after !

Dress of the week June 11th!

Good morning to you Ladies ! How are you doing today ? It is starting off cloudy here and there will be rain showers on and off throughout the day, I am hoping they are mostly off ! Our next door neighbors eldest daughter graduated high school this year and they are having their grad party today. A lot of it will take place in their garage, which her Parents spent a lot of hours finishing the walls and painting to get ready for the party. But it will be nice for them to have outdoor time too. We are storing some of their garage equipment in ours to give then extra room ! We had mostly sunny days here though this week.

I left off  last  week   with  the  big   event  being our  daughters  softball tournament in the   the  ball  fields  close to our  house.   There  were  teams  from  all over  the   metro  area  at  it and  beyond.    They won  2  out of  3  on the  Friday night.   Then on Saturday  they    went  on a   winning  run  and  got to  the  championship  game !!   They faced  a  strong  Mankato team  who are always  good.   The  game  was  pretty  tense  with  our  team in the  lead  and  then  theirs.   We   needed to get  a  run in the  bottom of the  fifth to  tie the  game.   We  got  that!  In the  6th  we  held   them scoreless  when they  were  batting.  Then our  girls  went on  a  scoring  spree  with 5  runs!  to take the lead!  Mankato  got  one  run  back in the  7th   but  were unable to  catch us   and  the  girls  won the  tournament  to  great excitement!  It  finished  at 10:30 pm  Saturday  night !   Well done  Girls. 

 

Sunday  we  went to  church for the   feast of  Pentecost  ,  commemorating  when the Holy Spirit  descended on the  the  apostles of  Jesus  giving  them  the    courage to  go out and  convert the  people to Christianity.  We did  put down a  green  carpeting  under our  deck in the  afternoon  to  finish off  the  area,  the  grass  does  not  grow  well  there!   On  Monday it  was  back to the  grind  for  me ,  The  kids  were in their   first  full  week of  summer  vacation ! On Monday  night  we  went to  a  local  waterpark as  an early  surprise   for  the Shoutout  below !  We  are  still  chipping  away at  our basement   bedroom/ bathroom  project,  it is  nearly ready for  electrical inspection on Monday ! we  still have  doors to rehang  and  the door  knobs,  also a  few  more  little   items to complete. 

On Thursday  both our  daughter  and second  son   had  ball  games !   Our  daughter  had a  double  header  against a  local team tat  they  won,   and  our  son had  a  single  game  at his  age  level.   They  won the  game,  a  big surprise  was  when  the coach put our  son in to be  the pitcher !   He   tried  very hard  ,  has  a strong  throw,  but  could  be  good  at it with  practice.  It  was  fun to watch him !  

 

Hello Weekend illustration

 

We  have  another  softball tournament  today  and  tomorrow ,  also our  son  on the  trap team  has  practice  for the  state  tournament  in  10  days  time.   We  also  will  try to get to the  party  next  door  !

Dress of the week June 4th !

Good morning ladies and I cannot believe I am saying it but welcome to June on my blog!!!! May went in so fast and spring finally arrived in May for us ! We have had really beautiful weather for the most part.

June 2022 H. S.

Last weekend  was a  long  one in the  U.S.   It was  even longer  for  me  as our  youngest  was  feeling  unwell on the  Thursday  night  and  we  decided to  keep   him  home  from  school  as  a precaution On Friday .   Also on Friday  the  carpet  was  installed  in the    basement  bedroom project  for our  daughter. we also had  the  temporary  bedroom  she is  using , an office on the  ground  level carpeted.  Thanks to our  installer  Oleg , a lovely young man !  On Saturday  morning  I  went  for  a  walk in the  woods  with our  eldest  son. It was a  lovely  nature  walk but it  started  to  rain   during it. so we  cut it  short  . My    phone took in  some  moisture  and I had to go to the  phone store with it.   They were  not able to fix it  and I  had  to  have  a  new one  sent to  me,  it is  why I  have insurance!   In the  afternoon    our   middle  boy had  friends  come over to play.   They    went  swimming in our  still cold to  me   pool!!  They did not  have  any issues.  

Sunday  was   a relaxing   day   with  nothing  pressing on the  agenda.  On the  holiday Monday  we  went  to   watch our  local town  baseball  team in action. They would  be  considered  minor  league  but the standard  was  really good.   It  was a  fun  day out     for  family   and    and  good  food  as  well!

Tuesday  was  back to  reality  ,  but  for our  youngest  2  it  was  the  day they  got  their  summer   vacation.  They  had to  go in  for a  few  hours   and  then were  done !! I  remember  those  carefree   days !   On  Thursday our older  2   finished  for the  year .    There  was  softball and  baseball  games  for our  2  players on Thursday  night . Our  daughter  had  a  game  across the  state  border in Wisconsin,   and our  son  had to  travel a   half hour to his  game. We  had  to  divide  and  conquer  as   parents .  Our  daughters,  team  won  but our  son’s   came up  against a  stronger  team.    Last  night our  daughters  team  played  the  first  3  games in  the local tournament   They won  2  and  lost 1 .  I will update you on the  rest of the  tournament  next  week.

Dress of the week May 21st !

Good  morning  Ladies !   Can you believe   we  are   2/3 of  the  way  through  May already ?   It  seems  to  be  going  by  so  fast .  Today is  starting off  nice  and  sunny   but  the  weekend  is  going to  be  changeable  with  cloudy weather and  maybe  some  rain  also.   We  also  had   rough  weather  during the  week  with hailstones   also !    Our   daughter and son’s  ball games  were  cancelled   on Thursday.   The upside is  that  everything  is  starting to  blossom!

Last  week  I  said   I  was   painting  some  wood  trim . I  indeed did  paint it   .  We   brought it outside into the  sun  and  it  was  able to  dry   nicely.    We   also set up doors  in the  basement  for  painting , they are not  done  yet .  The  carpet in the  basement  bedroom  is  ordered  and we  are waiting on a  date  for  the  installers to   come.  Once the  wood  trim is installed it will  just  be  electrical  to finish and the   bedroom/bathroom will be  done! then the  fun  finishing touches of shower  curtain ,   and  accessories.    

In the  afternoon  I had to  check people in for our  eldest son’s  trap team. it  was  my week to volunteer.  We  were  there  for  about  3  hours  and it went  pretty smooth!   On Saturday  evening  the  kids  had  their  friend  Maddi come over and  they went  swimming.  All I can say right now is  Brrr!!  They   so  enjoyed it  though.   On Sunday  I went to early Church,  then  we  drove to help  my  aunt-in-law  with a  few  things  after  she  had  moved  to a  new  apartment   the  previous  day.  I usually like to  take it  easy on Sunday  but  this  was   an  exception.   We  got  home  at  about  6pm. 

 

Monday came fast as usual , we met with an insurance adjuster in the afternoon as we possibly have hail damage on our roof. We are waiting to hear back from him. Tuesday evening we did grass cutting . It was the first time since we moved home last June, as there had been a lawn service paid for until October 2021! We will handle it from now on. Wednesday and Thursday went by quickly . Last night there was a food in the park event in our neighborhood. There were a few different vendors and it was a chance to chat with people. Today there will be numerous chores to tackle…. I just have to get motivated ! The kids are going to an early morning Minnesota twins camp for 2 hours, so that should be fun !

Dress of  the  week  May 14th !

Good  morning  Ladies  from a  sunny   Minnesota  morning ! We  got  thunderstorms  and  tornado  warnings  Wednesday  night,  we  had  to  go  to the  basement   as  suggested  by the  weather authorities !  The  kids   had  lots of  of  questions, the  younger ones  especially.  We  got  a  little  bit of  hailstones  also.   Since  then it  has  been  sunny  skies !

So  Last  Saturday  I  left   you all  quick  to  get  ready for  the  wedding of our  friend  Brandon  and  Josette.  We  drove    the  50mins to the  hotel on the  north  side of  the  twin  cities   where    everything   was  at the  same  venue .   They  had the  Pastor come in  and  perform the   ceremony .  The  main  reading  was  1 Corinthians 13 ,    a  popular  wedding   passage of the  Bible.  Even though there  will be  tough times, love  remains  a  constant .  They  soon  became  husband  and  wife !!  it  was  lovely.   Soon  after   there  was  the  cocktail  hour  with  everyone   unwinding  with  a  few   drinks!    Then  the  dinner  came  soon  after   and  was  very good.  We  were  seated   with  2  other  couples  we  had  not  met  before  so it  was  nice  getting  to  chat  with   and  have a    fun time  with. One  couple  lives  close  to us .    The  DJ   started   right after  the    cake  was  served ,  then after  the  first  dance  people got out on the  dance  floor  too!    Most of the  music  was  from the  90’s   and  the  dj  also  took  requests for  those  wanting to  branch into the  80’s !!   We  left  before  it  was  all over ,  it  was  a  lovely  day to  remember.

  On  Sunday it  was  up  early  for   Church .  Then  in  the  afternoon our  youngest had  his  last   Swimming  lesson of  the  season( surprising it was on Mothers  day!)     We  had  a  quiet  Mothers  day  afternoon  together   with just our own  immediate  family.  We   went out  to  a local  restaurant    for  dinner  to  complete  a  nice  day. 

Mothers day

Monday   was   a  nice  day to  start the  week .  It  was  pretty standard.  On Tuesday our  9 yr old  had his  first  baseball game of the  season!   It was   fun to  get out  and  see  him  play and the  weather  was lovely. They won their  first  game   and  they  were  really happy  afterwards.   Then on  Thursday they  had  another  game   and  got  their   second  win.   I  felt  bad  for the other  team’s  pitcher.  he  was  really  struggling to get  the  ball to the  plate  and  it took a  long  time  for  his  coach to  relieve him.   

 We opened  our  pool  last  night!!  Our    fearless  kids  had  to go in for the first  swim !!!  I will wait   until it  warms up a  little.  Once in they  got used to the  temps  and  had  fun.  As  they  were  swimming  we  had  a  backyard  bonfire  , also our  first   of  the  year.

Todays   post  will  be   pretty  short,  we  are  going  to the  wedding of our  friends  Brandon  and  Josette  later  at 4:30 . It is   going to  be  a  beautiful occasion.    Brandon and  Josette   were neighbors of ours, our  old  house  was on a square  block  with a  big field in the  middle  for  playing/ relaxing .   Brandon and  Josette  met in the  field !   The  rest  as  they  say is  history. We  were honored to be  with both of  them  on a  night out  when  he  proposed to her !  We   were in on the  secret  , and it was a  beautiful occasion to be  part of. Now  they are  going to be  joined in marriage. I am a  hopeless romantic  and  am looking  forward to later !

Dress of the week April 30th !

Good  morning  Ladies !!   You  join  me  this  morning  from a   wet and  rainy Minnesota .  We   had a  few  sunny  days  during the  week   but  the  temperatures are  staying on the  cooler  side  for  April.     So I look  forward  to  tomorrow and  the  first of  May  and   warmer days  ahead!

be good to yourself

 

I  started  last  weeks  post  on Saturday  but it  did  not  publish until the  middle of the  week when I finally finished it !    I  finished the  post  telling  you about our daughter spraining  her   foot. It  was  scary at  the time to find out  she  hurt her    foot  at  a  friends house  after   missing  a  step. It  came close on the  heels of our  son  fracturing his  shinbone in November so you can imagine what I  was  thinking “Here  we  go again!”  We  picked  her up     and  got  her to   the  emergency room.  It  turns out it  was  a  sprain only and  nothing  broken !    She  was  sent home  with  crutches   and  had  to use  them  for  the  first few  days. Then  she  was  able  to  walk on  her  foot  and  is making  great progress. She  will be able to  get  back to  playing  softball in a  few  weeks. 

 

On  Sunday  morning  we  went  to  Church  and  also   to  the  coffee and  donuts  provided afterwards. We  had a  nice  chat with another family from the  parish.   Our  youngest  had  swim lessons in the  afternoon   and  we  had a  relaxing   day thereafter. We were  back to the  weekly  grind  on  Monday .  Our   9yr old  had his  first  baseball  training  session of the  season,  he  has a  few  friends on the  team  so is  happy about  that , but it is  good  to  meet  other  kids  that he does not  know yet.   He  also has  training on  Thursdays .  Two of our  3  doors  were  installed  during the  week on the  basement  project  and  we also have  carpet picked out for the  new  bedroom  and our  main floor office! The   carpet  company   owner is coming on  Friday May 6th to measure   the areas we are installing.  You will have to wish me luck today ! I am  undertaking  to  grout  the  tile  floor in our  new  bathroom  today !!    I will  look at  some  online  videos for the  correct  technique ! Hopefully  I will have  good  results  next  week !  

if you need some time take it

Dress of the week April 23rd !

Good morning Ladies from a sunny Minnesota ! I am glad it is going to be a nice day after a lot of rain yesterday . I said rain not snow so you can tell the temps are rising ! There is a silver lining!

At the  end of Last weeks  post   I said   we  were  working in the  basement  painting .   We  did  get  two  coats on the  bedroom . In the  bathroom  we  made a last  minute  decision to put  wallpaper on the  sink  wall.  We  have it ordered   now.  We  also  have the  doors  ordered  , and  will pick  carpet  soon. 

On  Sunday morning we  woke up early  and  when it  got  light we  noticed  the  Easter  bunny had visited our  house  with   eggs in the  front  and  back yard !  We  went  to the early 8am  mass  at  church.  It was a lovely mass  to  celebrate the  risen savior ! After  Mass  we  came home  and  the  kids  went on the Easter  egg hunt.   After  a  few  minutes  they had  full   buckets !  

 

Soon   after  we  got packed up  and  made the  90 minute  drive to my Brother-in-law and  his  family’s  house to  celebrate  Easter  with all the  family.   It was a  lovely afternoon  together , the  Easter  bunny  had  also   stopped  by their house so there  was  another egg  hunt  for the  kids .   It  was a   as  we  had  snow a  little  later !

 We  spent  a  few  hours  and  then it  was  time to make the  trip home   to get  ready for  another  week!  It   went   pretty  standard   as  it  does  during the  school year. We  did  treat ourselves  by going out to eat  on Wednesday  evening.    After work on Friday   was  different!  We  went to  look at  carpet  samples in the  showroom   part of the company i work for! It  was  nice  being  there after  hours  and  getting a   chance to look at  ease. We are  still  deciding on  a  carpet for the  basement. Decisions !!   On Saturday we worked on the  basement  bathroom  by installing  a  tile  floor! We  rented  a  tile  cutting saw  and it  went  smooth!  here is the  result  below !

On  Saturday  evening  our  daughter  went to  a  friends  house  and  after  an hour  we  got a  call  that  she had  hurt  her  foot coming off a   step  awkwardly.  So   we  brought  her to the  ER  and it  turns out it  was a  sprain, I am glad  there  was  nothing  broken !
