  • Saw a Mom, Dad & 2 baby Canadian Geese in the parking lot at work yesterday: walking calmly towards the lake there & blocking traffic. They were Soooo cute. The young ones were all yellow & fuzzy down - just adorable family.

  • Our carrots & sunflowers & nasturtiums have sprouted. Yay.

  • I was too busy working on best practices docs today & didn't let myself take lunch, so no workout, but I think I'll do a workout w/the kids after work instead. Maybe we'll go practice soccer in the backyard.

  • Sunday there is "Dandelion Days at the Ard Godfrey House" from noon-3pm, which includes making dandelion chains of various types, face painting & a book of dandelion recipes: sounds like fun for us (as Aurora & I adore Dandelions).

  • Saturday: Downtown Minneapolis is having a grand opening for their new fancy library this Saturday: that should be fun.
