Rainy Day

It started out as a rainy day today, but it has now turned to snow! Has winter finally arrived?

There aren't many Jewish deli's in St. Paul. In fact, Cecil's is the only one I know of. It's no Chompies (the Jewish deli I LOVED when I lived in Phoenix) but it's not bad.

Finally opened and just down the block from my house. How could you ask for more?

After Christmas Glow

All over St. Paul, families are basking in the after Christmas glow. And all over St. Paul garbage bins are overflowing in the after Christmas excess.

A Day In The Life of Lucas!

The sun rises over the city.

Nearly one hundred Christmas cards get mailed to family and friends.

A hard day of work was had.

Beautiful neighborhood lights were enjoyed.

A cocktail called The Paris Hilton (with a side of bling)was discovered.

Interesting sights were seen on display.

Beauty was found in the ordinary.

A few more pics of La Cucharacha. I once had some kind pulled pork tacos or something there. They were so good I almost fell out of my chair. But I'm willing to branch out and try new places. Thanks to Kate for the suggestion of El Bravo. We will for sure give it a try.

La Cucaracha

This festive truck was parked outside my favorite local Mexican restaurant, La Cucaracha on Dale & Grand.

In trying to be sneaky, I shot without a flash but that makes for slightly blurry pics. My apologies.

And now, a trip through 7 Corners Hardware

Since the dawn of time, 7 Corners Hardware has been providing St. Paul with its building needs. No triple wide aisles or teenaged workers here. The aisles are narrow, the shelves crowded and the workers experienced. Rather than looking for the needed item yourself, it's always better to ask since most likely, it's on a shelf 10 feet high behind 3 other boxes of things you don't need. But they have it all folks! There is a sign that says "No photos" that I really wanted a photo of but it's right near the register so I didn't dare. So the in the days to come, I'll post what I was able to shoot from under my coat. Enjoy and stop by next time you have some building or repair needs.
