Project 21: Day #21

It’s October 21, but once in a while the weather cooperates so I can drive around with the top down. One of my favorite things!

Project 21: Day #20

We went here for lunch today. It’s in Lake Zurich, and it’s another place that we’ve been waiting for it to open. I wasn’t terribly impressed. The menu was very small which wasn’t the problem. Their choices in toppings for hot dogs is minimal. The only things you can get on hot dogs here are the ingredients are what you can get on the original Chicago hot dog: Mustard, Onions, Relish, and Peppers. For most people from the Chicago area, that would be fine. But give me my tomato and pickle!!!

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant. It’s in McHenry, IL, and has been around for roughly 35 years. The best Chinese food ever!

The photo of the day is a beer that my friend Chris gave me. It’s a Chocolate Lager from Miller Brewing Co. So far, it’s very tasty. Thanks, Chris!

Project 21: Day #11, round 2

Project 21: Day #11

It has been two months since I got my new tattoos. This one is my aunt’s initials. I wanted to get it as a memorial to her. The other one is a book, which I got to commemorate my Master’s Degree.

Project 21: day #6

The photo for Day #6 is a picture of my scrapbook closet. It is a complete disaster, and unfortunately, usually looks like this. Hopefully I will be able to reorganize it today, and clean it up so I can actually use it. We’ll see how that goes. When it’s clean and reorganized, I’ll post a photo of it so I can compare the two.

Project 21: Day #5

I am taking a Big Picture Scrapbooking class, taught by Ali Edwards, called Yesterday & Today. The photo from day 5 is a screenshot of the video presentation for Week one of the class.

Project 21: Day # 2

Something exciting is happening today at my library. Workmen are installing a ramp in the garage! After it’s finished, we won’t have to wheel the carts outside the building to the garage. This will help us in the winter months since we will no longer have to take the materials into the elements.

Project 21: Day #1

Today begins my photo project from the 52 Projects book. Each day for one month, I will take a photo and post it on the blog. Here’s the photo for Day #1.
What’s with the 3 Musketeers bar? My grandfather passed away 7 years ago today. His favorite candy was 3 Musketeers. Every year on Oct. 1 and his birthday (Oct. 28), I have a 3 Musketeers bar in his honor.
