When will the ice be off Lake Minnetonka? Ice melting off a lake means spring and melts away spring fever.


Everyone is anxious for the ice to be off the lake. We live in an area where we get cabin fever at this time of the year and we just can’t wait for one of the first signs of spring; the ice totally melting off the lake. istock_000005379973small1istock_000001025366small

Many people try to predict the exact date, people have “Ice Off” parties, and the winter blaas just seem to melt away along with the ice!

It is tax time. Deductions, exclusions, rebates, expenses, can I just get an extension?

I'm over my head. It's tax time!
I’m over my head. It’s tax time!

So I’m starting my taxes and it’s a little overwhelming. When you have your own business, and when you are your own business, it seems to take a long time to go through all the paperwork to get your taxes to the accountant. I think I will just go take a nap!

Do you want to move off the lake…

If you want to move off the lake, it is easier to just move yourself, not your house too!If you are moving off the lake, just move yourself, not the house. It's too much work!

Strange House of the Day

This one somehow reminds me of the torch on the Statue of Liberty.

I also see a giant solar ice cream cone. Don’t eat it though. No one wants glass in their mouth.

I think I need more privacy than that. I would also like a bigger foundation. I can’t do laundry in that little tiny basement.

Skate shaped house

My daughters love to figure skate. I found this picture and I just asked one of them if she would like to live in this house. She said she would not. I said it looks like a figure skate. She said it looks like a shoe. My husband thinks it is a boot. I still say it is a skate. No matter what it is, it is an interesting house. I think it would be fun to stay there for a night or two.
