The view on Scenic Highway 61

*Hello, long time no see.

It’s nice to have friends who live along the North Shore on Scenic Highway 61, also known as Congdon Blvd. If you’d like to read the history of the Road made famous by Minnesota son, Bob Dylan see this link.  To hear Bob Dylan’s rendition of Highway 62 listen here. Also I was unaware that Johnny Cash wrote a song about Highway 61 Hear it at this link: Highway 61 Revisited/When the Man Comes Around Johnny Cash 

This is the view my husband and I shared from the second floor studio of some friends of ours who attend our church. It was warm in town and at Miller Hill near the mall, but at this location it was very chilly. The lake has the effect. Children played outside while a bonfire burned.

* Sorry I haven’t been keeping up with my posts. I’ve started a new part time job and have been exhausted the past couple of weeks. I took the part time job because in the past having a paid job forced me to organize my time. I’m hoping that will be true again and you will be seeing posts from me. ~~~~ Naomi A.K.A. Sun_Dog.



Ice-covered rocks near lighthouse

A friend and I watched a movie at the cinema on Harbor Drive. After the movie we walked by the Lakewalk near the hotels and the canal. When she first invited me to for walking along the Lakewalk, I didn’t want to because of the sub-zero temperature. But the more I thought about the more I would like to say I braved the cold. We both worse several layers of clothing. I put some toe warmers in my boots, while still in the cinema lobby. The toe warmers contain iron powder,water, salt, activated charcoal and vermiculite. (Someday I will have to research them to see if they are environmentally-friendly.) The toe warmers stay warm for 6 hours. So I now have them in my slippers as I post this.  I’m not sure what the tempature was down at Canal Park, but it was very cold, my friend wanted to turn back for warm to Amazing Grace Bakery and Coffeeshop before I did. I credit the toe warmers for keeping me warm.
