Checking out

It was very quiet at Hyvee grocery store at 7:15 am as I scanned my groceries and toilet paper.

1956 was a great year!

This classic beauty was parked safely within eyesight of its owner. Gorgeous

50 Shades of Green

The lush green view from my office balcony is particularly lovely after so much rain!

Some stores have started to re-open at the Eagan outlet mall. People mostly wear masks and sometimes wait in line to enter a store with a shopper limit.

On Memorial Day, we thank and remember past and present military personnel from all six branches of the United States military for their service.  God bless America

Balcony beauty

My spring planting has begun with this Hibiscus on my balcony. That's what we usually do during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Frat boys

These University of Minnesota fraternity friends social distanced in the parking lot of the Cherokee restaurant on Friday for their bag lunches together after a round of golf.

Fishing with her

They were fishing on the dock at Thomas Lake.... probably for small "panfish."

Old money

This vintage car pulled up next to me at the TCF Bank drive-thru. What model and year do you think it is? I didn't notice....

Curve right

A peaceful walk around Thomas Lake led us through the woods. Saturday morning's stroll.

Canadian invasion

These baby geese were crossing a busy street. Mom and Dad were the crossing guards

These Canadians are so beautiful. I don't think they know about "social distancing?"

Come and sit

This unique bench provides a place to rest along Cedar Grove Parkway, just steps from the Eagan outlet mall.

Quiet ..... and strange to have no shoppers strolling around the Eagan outlet mall. This too shall pass! But when will the stores reopen?

One last one

This retirement apartment building has young crab trees lining the sidewalk. Thoughts?

The Marriott Hotel is coming along but the front lobby isn't ready yet. No sofas, no carpet, no chairs.
After a quick peek, I noticed this warning sign outside....

Our Eagan Rotary Club meets weekly on Wednesdays at noon on ZOOM! I miss the days of our lunch meetings together...... my iPad didn't show all the participants on its screen.

Here's another crab tree. This white one caught my attention on an overcast Sunday walk.

Thank them!

Last week had teacher recognition day so I'm a little late with this photo.  But nonetheless, please thank a teacher or two for all that they do!

Tiptoe.... through the tulips!

I took a photo of these colorful tulips because I guess they will be fading in the very near future....

Pink eye candy

Now the lovely crab trees are blooming in white and pink. I love them!

Old farmhouse

This beautiful, old house was built in 1911 and stands next to Trinity Lone Oak Lutheran Church. With its 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms and a barn on 4.44 acres, it would be a dream!

Social distancing

I stopped by Aldi grocery store yesterday morning on my way to work. Shoppers waited patiently, politely and safely for the doors to open.

Lake view

The brown cattails lined the soggy edge of Jensen Lake. Geese and ducks were playing on an early weekend morning.

Buddha sits in a relatively quiet, peaceful spot; although, traffic on Yankee Doodle Road passes behind and below this space.

Sad state of affairs

The playground at Jensen Lake Park is sealed up from kids due to the current Covid-19. Sadness!

Spring has sprung

Daffodils greet visitors at the Thomas Lake Park. Ah, spring!
