Well, we made it through the storm. It was a big one and everyone in the Midwest has a tale to tell about the "Dome Crusher Blizzard 2010". Thanks to my fabulous neighbors who used gas power to help dig out. Peter came home without a snow clearing task and he liked that.
We picked out our tree at the local A-Tree Service lot - within walking distance. It is up, decorated and the daily focus for Cedar. We are looking forward to seeing friends and family over the next couple of weeks. Stay Warm!
Peter Returns tonight - late. I miss him lots. It has been tough without him but we will make it through. He is a wonderful husband and father and a dedicated artist. I love him so much.
I hope today is not the last of this amazing weather. It has been just lovely although I adore the moody overcast fall days- perfect for journal writing and dreaming about a pair of boots that I can not afford.
Cedar has been to his new "school" (aka- a home day care in the neighborhood). It is going well for him and I think he is a different child when he is there. She actually gets him to nap! Wow. He wears his Lightning McQueen back pack over there - it is within walking distance (nice huh?). Today (Saturday) Cedar went for his first canoe ride in one of Phil's handmade canoes. Rob, Rebeca and Evan joined us in another canoe and we looked at the fall colors from the water. beautiful!
Last weekend we went to Franconia Sculpture Garden near Taylors Falls. The blue sky was amazing. The next day we visited the sweetest little park in Clear Water WI. This is the best time of year to be out. Also- Peter got his cast off today! He is off to a gig (of course) but feeling much better!
We are ending the summer with wonderful memories of the hot 2010 season. Peter has a cast on his left arm, Cedar is so very big, Bella just turned 10 (see candle in hot dog) and I am hanging in there. I will try to post more often. Sorry for the lapse. Cheers to the last drops of warm sunshine!
We had a fun & busy weekend at Ethel's wedding. Congrads to the Greiners!
Peter played at the reception, Cedar and I posed in front of a corn field, my brother Ryan was the DJ, my nieces were flower girls, Dawn did the flowers, decorations and coordination(fabulous!) and the other siblings threw in their wisdom and sweat. Here are a few photos. I'll try to post more soon.
