It's beginning....

..... to look a lot like Christmas. This beautiful Christmas tree caught my attention at my local Hyvee grocery store this week. Yes, it's only early November. Are they already decorating with Christmas trees by you?

All lined up

The Eastview high school girls stood ready to start their game on Friday night against Lakeville North high school. My daughter sang the American National Anthem before they dropped the first puck.

Grocery list

I went grocery shopping with a short list: granola, vitamin C, chicken tenders, pumpkin bread, Starbucks coffee, almond extract, Greek yogurt, granola bars, trail mix, broccoli, bananas and raspberries.
1. What's the name of your favorite, local grocery store?
2. How much would these groceries cost where you shop? (My bill was $54.24)

Burgers on wheels!

Parked at night but it probably served up many burgers during the summer!
Hyvee, my grocery store.

Glowing green...

The Eagan water tower was replaced a couple years back by a technology tower.
Kinda cool, isn't it?

"do you see what i feel?"

My artist friend, Annie Young, not only paints but also inspires others with her ability to create beautiful works of art with special techniques and great creativity. Her colorful canvases joined others created by former and current military personnel in a new military themed art exhibition which opened on Sunday evening at Artworks in Eagan. Visit her website here and see her magnificent, vast collection of paintings.

Memory Monday

Mt Calvary Lutheran Church remembered their 10 departed saints during Sunday's "All Saints Day" worship service by lighting 10 large candles, one for each one. Parishioners also lit small candles and placed them in the two long sand-filled boxes.

A traditional hymn for this day:
For all the saints who from their labors rest,
who thee by faith before the world confessed; 
Thy name, O Jesus, be forever blest.
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Does everything have to be red? Does everything have to match?
(Spotted at Kowalski's grocery store.)

Happy Halloween!

Lonely leftovers

Cub Foods grocery store still had pumpkins on sale for sale before Halloween.  I wonder if these poor guys found loving homes?
