Saturday, August 7, 2021

We are having a much needed rainy Saturday morning. The air smells clean and fresh and the grass, plants, and trees are soaking it all in. It is lovely!

Now to reconstruct my week’s highlights. Norah and Camille had a sleepover on Tuesday night after being with Granny and Poppa for the previous two nights.  He dropped them off at my place and we walked to the school playground for a starter, giving them an opportunity to burn off some energy.  Of course, they were interested in makeup and here is the result of that afternoon activity.

Of course, sleeping together in my bed (I slept on the couch) they couldn’t keep their hands off each other, so the wrestling and giggling started. We read and I rubbed their back and that settled them in for the night.

Wednesday’s activity was a trip to the Richardson Nature Center where we had some lunch, hiked the trails, explored the nature center, and played.  I got them back home by about 5:00 and had a nice, quiet evening by myself after that.

Yesterday, I drove to Osseo, WI and met my cousins JoAnne and Jonnie for lunch. It was a 2-hour drive for each of us, coming from opposite directions and meeting in the middle.  We had lunch at the Norske Nook, known for their Norwegian foods, bakery, and pies.  Jo was the only one who ordered traditional and she had a lefsa wrap with Norwegian meatballs. I had fish fry and Jonnie had shrimp. I brought a piece of apple lingonberry pie home for dinner - it was yummy!

We went through photos that Jonnie brought, as they are still going through Fran’s boxes of pictures. It was a great visit - so nice to stay in touch!
