Balcony pots

My balcony chairs and some of the flower pots came out of winter hiding in my garage.

Thanks, Nitti!

It snowed last week. The pandemic continues. Nitti still comes every week.

Gas down low!

The current price of $1.83 per gallon is surprisingly low! I'm not complaining....
What's the gas price by you?

We all need some exercise and fresh air these days as we "stay at home." These dog owners strolled by my kitchen window.

Frosty needs TP!

It snowed overnight but melted away quickly. These Eaganites worked quickly to add some humor to our global health situation!

Musical mid-week

My middle daughter and I played pieces from the Suzuki violin books. It was a special time at home to be together during this frightening, isolating time of corona virus. Let music lift you up with joy!

Caribou coffee and cheer

We can't go inside the Caribou Coffee shop now but their drive thru still welcomes coffee lovers. It was good to get out of the house for a quick java break!

Lonely on Lone Oak

This old house seems to be abandoned and the land next door has been cleared......

Metallic butterfly

This sculpture stands in front of the Eagan outlet mall parking garage. Lovely!

Confused by the signs

I thought right turns were east and left turns were west? ha ha ha

Morning commute

Tuesday was a sunny morning on my way to my office. Cliff Road seemed less busy than normal. 

Thursday, March 19, 2020


I spent just over $72 on groceries. Hyvee really had some bare shelves on Monday night as everyone seems to be stocking up for staying at home. Schools closed. Restaurants closing. Activities canceled. Corona virus has altered life right now...

Root canals on hold

This dental office is closed. What will patients do who need a "root canal?"

Happy St Patrick's Day!

I've never had a Shamrock plant before but why not for the Irish holiday?!

TP - it's no joke!

All the toilet paper was sold out last Friday at Target. People are stocking up for anticipated long stays at home due to the global corona virus outbreak. Let's hope and pray that it passes over sooner rather than later.

A light in the darkness

Eagan was waking up while Mount Calvary Lutheran Church illumined the darkness.

Weekday boarding

Cars were waiting behind this morning school bus...... its lights flashing

Make good choices

Bryan Frandrup works as senior vice president and a commercial loan officer at Choice Bank just off Pilot Knob Road. He also serves his community as an Eagan Rotarian.

Flower duet

These high school girls sang "sous le dome epais" in French at Monday evening's Eastview High School choir concert. They sang like opera singers with this song from the "Lakme" opera.

Lovely lit lobby

This entryway fireplace and lobby are brilliant at the newly renovated EMAGINE movie theater. Saturday night's showing of "The Invisible Man" was action packed and a bit disturbing.

99 bottles of booze on the wall

This "speakeasy" bar at 1278 Lone Oak Road is very cool. Fantastic drink selections and also an outdoor patio for this spring and summer at Volstead House. Cheers!

No fresh veggies now

This public garden at Mt Calvary Lutheran Church raises fresh fruits and vegetables for the "Open Door" foodshelf. However, they are still on "winter break".....

Bus at night

The Eagan Bus Garage holds and repairs a fleet of local buses. It was dark along Highway 13 when I took this photo.

no mas burritos

The "La Fonda" restaurant closed its doors several months ago. No more tequila drinks nor Mexican food can be found there anymore. What will be next....

small and sassy

This little SMART car was parked nearby. I just wanted to hug it....

Historic home

This 4 bedroom farmhouse was built in 1917. Now it's surrounded by a residential community of newer townhouses. Rumor has it that the original owner's two daughters still own this antiques loaded gem.

Super Tuesday

Minnesotans and voters in several other states came out to vote in the presidential primary on Tuesday.  I voted at my nearby church.  This photo was altered to protect my ballot privacy.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Vendella opened its doors as a new euro boutique and coffee haus. A cozy, cool place with a welcoming vibe - come for the company, coffee, lunch, gift shop and / or to rent a conference room. View their website, click here.

Speed trap

Eagan police officers really patrol our streets for speeders and texters! Drive safely!

Chapel Hill Church

It was a sunny afternoon and I enjoyed a walk in the nearby Jensen Lake Park.
