of the city to meet my cousin, her 2 girls and her mom (my mom's sister) and go to the Minnesota Zoo. What an incredible day we had. We made it there just in time for the shark feeding which was fascinating. We then spent 3 hours walking all over the zoo. The highlights were the new Russian Coast exhibit and my favorite - the Minnesota Trail.
We live in the Halloween Capital of the World so needless to say we take the holiday just a little seriously. The house has been decorated and Halloween costumes have been in discussion for a couple months. We are already excited for the big day!

My mother-in-law and I have moved into our new endeavor today! We rented a booth at Weekend Cottage Antiques and are excited to see how it all goes. The shop is open Friday - Sunday and is located in Clear Lake, MN just off Cty. Rd 10 (not to far off of I94 from Clearwater). My in-laws have been antique dealers since they retired from teaching over 10 years ago. This is my first go (outside of a few things in my in-laws shops). I have included some of my homemades - I am calling that little side business "Remnants" being that I use remnants from the past in the form of antiques and antique sewing notions as well as remnants of yarn and fabric that I try to put to use in new ways.
