Chillin’ and Mille Laxin’

I’ve been enjoying an week with Mom, so it’s been a bit slow around here. She drove up from Carbondale, Illinois and has been staying with me and the Hubby in Minneapolis. During the day while I’m at work she hangs out at the house and works on her computer or runs around the neighborhood. As soon as I get home we go out on the town. So far we’ve been pretty laid-back. It’s been all:

Lookin’ at flowers and chasing bees.

Look – y0u can see Mom’s face in the glass stem below the cherry!

Tonight we’re planning on going star-gazing at  Dodge Nature Center in St. Paul. The Weather Channel currently has this evening looking clear (no clouds), so it should be a good night for it. This weekend we’re going to drive up to Mille Lacs, although we don’t have much in the way of plans for that. We’re going to drive up and around the lake, chat, take photos, eat food at a local Mom-and-Pop restaurant, maybe try to rent a boat for a half day, and pretty much do whatever comes our way. 

I’ll be getting back to being all social justicey and atheisty and snarky and growly next week. Right now I’m in the grips of a lovely, lazy Minnesota summer.
