Minnesota Landscape Arboretum


I love to visit the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, Minnesota during every season. Right now summer is in full bloom! I feel so blessed to live in Minnesota where we have 4 distinct seasons and the arboretum is the perfect place to experience summer! The arboretum features more than 1,000 acres that can be explored by walking, biking or driving.

Part of their mission is to inspire and delight all visitors with quality plants in well-designed and maintained displays, collections, model landscapes, and conservation areas. They truly live their mission.

I love to go to the arboretum all alone and relish in the sights, sounds, and smells of Minnesota. I also love to go the arboretum when I have friends who come to visit me. There is always the opportunity to explore on your own to take part in Family Drop-In Activities.

I think it is wonderful that the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is open 363 days a year! If you are looking for a fun way to spend a summer day please take a quick trip to Chaska!

Doing Laundry


One of my favorite household tasks is doing laundry! I know, I know! How crazy is that?!? I love taking the laundry out of the washer and hanging the clothes on the clothes line! Once the laundry is dry it is so fun to fold it because it is so crisp and clean! The laundry smells delightful, fresh and invigorating! I always have such a feeling of accomplishment when I do household tasks! What is your favorite household task? I love doing laundry!

I'm going walking in the rain! We haven't received very much rain this spring. It sounds so good to hear the rain gently falling right now! I'm going to grab my umbrella and go walking in the rain!

The Smell Of Freshly Cut Grass


Tonight I sat outside for awhile and enjoyed the smell of freshly cut grass. It has rained the past couple of days so the grass is new, green and very fragrant. The grass was mowed earlier tonight after the afternoon sun dried off the rain drops. It was the perfect spring night to sit outside and enjoy the smell of freshly cut grass!

Getting Enough Rest


I have not been getting enough rest! I have been working on several large projects for work that are almost done and I'm so excited! I am not a night person. I am a morning person. However, the last couple of nights I have been up until 1:00 a.m. and up at 5:00 a.m. That is enough rest for me! I'm looking forward to next week when I will have everything completed and I will be getting enough rest!

Drink More Water - Follow Up


It has been 5 months since I wrote a blog post about drinking more water! I do feel better now that I drink less Coke. More and more frequently when I open up my refrigerator door I grab a pitcher of cold water! Today nothing tastes better to me than a glass of ice water!

Dapping Tools And Doming Punches

Dapping tools are punches with a ball shaped end that are used to shape softer metals. They are also known as doming punches because they are used to 'dome' metal discs. We carry two different sets of dapping tools in our shop.
