Summer envy

We have all grown tired of the snowy winter in Eagan and long for summer. Oliver seems to be rushing it at Schultz Lake Beach in Lebanon Hills Park.

Snow mountain

Over our long winter, the snow really piled up at the Cub Foods grocery store off Cliff Road. Any guesses when it will all be melted away?

Red and white

This beautiful, old barn stands next door to Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran Church. They have probably been good neighbors for a long time!  See other Barn Charm meme participants here.

Champion heart

Paige Martin, a local 5th grader, raises money annually to support the mission of the "Miracles of Mitch" foundation with pledges for her triathlon participation. Her run, swim, bike efforts amassed $2,050 in 2011 and last year she collected $2,800. In this summer's 2 races, she and her sister plan to skyrocket to $10,000 to help children fighting cancer! Find more info at her website here. (Hint: she loves charitable pledges....)

Sacred Sunday spire

Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran Church stands tall near Lone Oak Road in northeast Eagan. In my opinion, it's the closed thing we have to a "cathedral" in our city!

Pottery relieving poverty

Hundreds of people gathered Thursday for the annual Eagan Resource Center foodshelf "Empty bowls" fundraiser at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church. For $20, one could select a handmade bowl and enjoy soup served in it.

Kowalskis run

About $133 worth of groceries! How much would they cost in your grocery store

Happy place....

After yesterday's snow blizzard, I had to post a photo that brings me to a "happy place." Orchids grow in Singapore and other warm, tropical places.... and in my HFN office in snowy Eagan!

Good-bye gloomy winter. We want spring

It's snowing outside - a blizzard! Ugh!!

When the boss is away...

Ron cuts my hair monthly and always does a great job at a reasonable price! I photographed them in between customers. Cedar Grove Barbers are located at 1977 Silver Bell Road.

Corned beef and cabbage...

If you want Irish food on St. Patrick's Day, then try a swing over to the "Valley Lounge" on Highway 13 and Yankee Doodle Road.

Mable, Mable if you're able...

.... keep your feet off the table! Thai stood on the picnic table at Holland Lake in Lebanon Hills Park. Is spring coming soon?

A holy site

This hole in the frozen ground along Cliff Road engulfs a new walkout basement. Check back in early summer for a new house progress report!

Which 'wich?

This new chain sandwich shop opened in the new building facing Cliff Road on Rahn Road.  This eighth opening in the Twin Cities brings a fun, different approach to hot and cold build-your-own 'wich with 50 options! Their website here.

And an orange hat

Kinda cute with an orange hat, saggy nose and red scarf! Have you made a snowman this year?!

A side view

It's been a snowy week! I glanced at Johnny Cake Ridge Road in my mirror.....

Really red ribbon...

Some of her Dakota County Chamber of Commerce pals joined her recently for a ribbon cutting at her new store. If you need a personalized gift, then visit Mary at 1095 Diffley Road, Suite E!

Snowman X 2

Spouse snowmen? Sibling snowmen? Similar snowmen?

Sunday, March 3, 2013

Yep, really BIG!

Almost 6 feet tall. But no nose, eyes, arms or buttons.

Hippy snowman

I'm sorry about the angle of my photo. It makes the snowman's butt look big....

Look back, look forward

I looked back in my photo archive and found this August 2011 photo.  This "Pardon My French" cafe' scene will probably not happen in 2013 since they closed in late 2012.

Friday is the City Daily Photo blog community's theme day: "Cafe' chairs." See other participants here
