Rectangle Designs

Check out this website.  I met Sarah in the sauna at the YWCA along with a Somali woman, Naleye, dressed in a full hijab.  She had been in the whirlpool and was now in the sauna trying to dry her hijab.  The three of us had a lovely chat and…

Random week of photos

We had a busy week.  First, fun with iphone photo apps. Fatboy Oldboy Carlyle's owie from falling down the stairs.  Put a dent in his income too because he can't donate blood until the owie turns yellow. An amazing dinner made by Little.   It was the best porkchops I've ever…

Endless entertainment

I finally got my bird feeders cleaned and filled and I put them up right in front of my desk in the front porch.  I also bought a new platform feeder and put it in the windowbox.  Today the chickadees discovered the food bonanza.  And the cats discovered the birds.  …

Yesterday was Kevin's 55th birthday.  I reminded him that now he qualifies for the senior discount at Denny's restaurant.  He was not amused. We decided to go to two state parks and do five miles of hiking to earn our 75-mile patch. We started at Great River Bluff State Park. …

Drama on the corner

It started out as a run-of-the-mill 911 call.  A not-so-subtle drug dealer was out on the corner on a bike.  A Blazer pulled up and the guy dropped the bike and got into the car and went around the corner, right in front of my house.  I've got my trusty…

Tornado Alley?

I was checking weather.com to see how hot it was supposed to get today (93).  Suspecting it was going to be hot I went for a walk early in the Greenway this morning.  I wore my flip flops instead of walking shoes.  The dew was heavy on the grass  and…

Delicious Sushi

Last night was too hot for cooking so we went to Lunds and bought sushi.   We've beeen buying sushi from Lunds for years.  They have decent sushi.  But this plate of sushi was so delicious -- it was the best ever.  I'm already thinking about having sushi again tonight.  The…
