Word of the day....HOOCH!

This word is underused.  I think we should start a movement to revive it.  Who's with me?

Look Up

While shoppers go about their business, an artist is perched above the groceries painting whimsical scenes.  Art is EVERYWHERE you turn in this busy store.  Trader Joe's.  Randolph and Lexington.

The folks at The Yarnery are so nice!  They'll wind your yarn for you for free.  A HUGE help when there are 2 rambunctious cats at home who want to "help".  Grand Avenue

Another Full Moon

Amazing to see the moon so big and full, lighting up the night sky.


 I love a good independently owned and operated business.  I only wish Scott's was within walking distance of my house!

There's a New Kid in Town.

And I think I'm in love.

Freestyle Yogurt, Lexington and Randolph.

An entire wall of delicious flavors.

An entire room full of toppings.

And even MORE toppings, and fudge sauce!

And it's all SELF SERVE!

You pay by weight and even THAT is up to you. 
 Spin the wheel if you dare to gamble for a lower price per ounce.

Even the bathroom is a good time!

All with a fun surfer motif and surfboards for tables.

 So get your asses over there Saint Paul. 
Yes, even in the middle of winter.  It will warm you right up!
