There's three more weeks of classes! I actually have a few spare moments this weekend (or at least I'm taking some whether I have them or not).
Today I met a friend downtown for coffee. Even though we live 20-25 minutes away from each other, we hadn't seen each other in three months. We both agreed to be better friends once the semester ends.
Joe's been working hard too--driving to St. Cloud four days a week and applying for all the teaching jobs in world. He also shaved his beard. It's shocking every time he does. But eventually he looks like himself again.
We haven't had much time or energy for cooking, but every once in a while we stop working long enough to eat. Here's a coffee cake I made one morning.
We also made corned beef brisket one night. The next night we used the leftovers, and a homemade pizza dough to make Rueben pizza. We agreed it was good but needed more of everything on it.
A chickadee finally moved in to my birdhouse, but now a robin has been terrorizing the balcony, so I think it moved out.
It's been snowing. I know, shocking.
But there were a couple days (including today) that allowed for bike rides.
A doughnut shop opened up down the road from us. Good thing the line wraps all the way around the place, otherwise we would be there way too often.
