Yesterday was Frozen Custard Day. The weather was magnificent, giving a holiday feel.
I meant to have a quick breakfast at Brothers K and then run errands but my across-the-hall neighbor spotted me and we ended up catching up for an hour after months of not seeing each other. ‘Cause good neighbors meet at the corner cafe every few months, right?
Then I walked around town to take care of a few things.
Andy’s had 55 cent cones, which of course I couldn’t resist.
Deliciousness. Tomorrow is National S’mores Day, so I need to find a camp fire!
It is construction season here too.
Best thing to do is to remain ‘zen’ about it.
Or ride a bike.
I relished the mid-70s temperature with a soft breeze and gorgeous sunshine.
Somehow that brightness makes me hyper-aware of nature and color, and I start noticing new things in the neighborhood I’ve walked for ten years.
Like this pensive statue.
Our Lakeshore Historic District had a few old timers.
Hummer for the Summer, anyone?
I’m super excited about Trader Joe’s becoming walking distance.
This bee posed for me for a bit. It’s good to see them around.
With roses shining brightly and the joyous sun I felt like I was in a fairy tale.
My neighborhood does have castles!
Admirals and painted ladies are still scarce in our neighborhood (compared to last year), but the cabbage whites and sulphurs are flitting about.
Lucky shot. 🙂
