Stampin' Up!

Made some cards at a friend's house . . . have you ever tried this? It is big around the Chicago suburbs.

Neighborhood sign

This is a neighborhood very close to mine, right on the Fox River. Everyone calls it Burton's Bridge. Wonder if the sign is right, or the general population.

Healthy Eating!

There is no butter or oil on this dish -- very simple, steamed, just salt and pepper. And delicious.

Signed, sealed, delivered . . .

If you are in the U.S., you need to fill out both your census forms and your tax returns. And mail them! OK, you can file your taxes online, but you have to mail your census form!

Making R's out of P's

I'm not a big fan of this place although lots of people love it. I don't really like their hamburgers, which is their big item. But I confess I like the frozen custard -- raspberry sundae is the best! I liked the way they tried to make R's out of P's on this sign.

A little bit bigger . . .

I wonder how many of the last post could fit inside this one? How much does anyone really need? These 2 houses are only a few blocks away from each other, in the same town.
