Walking on a summer evening

Margene’s having a contest – guess how many yards are in her skein of handspun and the person who’s closest without going over will win a prize. Leave your guess by July 6.

My goodness – remember the Yarnapalooza contest at Romancing the Yarn that I mentioned yesterday? The one with daily prizes in July?! I won the first prize! *bounce bounce bounce*

Have a great name idea for the fifteenth Stephanie Plum book? Submit it by August 31 and if your name is picked, you’ll receive a mention in book 15 plus an autographed copy!

Yesterday after work, I met some coworkers for drinks and dinner at Chiang Mai Thai. As I was walking home afterwards, I took a few pictures… I’m sure that was completely independent of my thinking, “Oh, crap, I have nothing to blog about on Wednesday!” 😉

Looks pretty festive up on top of Stella’s Fish Cafe, doesn’t it?

Can’t get much more honest than the name of this bar (lower right).

A row of colorful shops along Hennepin Avenue:

I love the whimsical bike racks in Uptown.

Guess who I was thinking of when I took this picture, Lorraine?!

  1. LOL-nice the see they’re doing their part to keep the cat hair manageable..

    C’mon Chaos give’er the ol’Whack-A-Cat and then jump’er.

  2. Finished 14 in near record time and am tossing my brain for a good 15 title that hasn’t been submitted already.

    Have a special Plum post planned for Saturday 🙂

  3. Thanks for the contest mention. You won’t be winner it. 😉
    Your pictures of the area are always fun to see and I’d love to be eating in that cafe!
    May, stay safe!

  4. Well now, prize-winning, that will cheer you right up!

    So much of Uptown is whimsical, I do miss it.

  5. Summer evening walks are so nice. I need to move farther west (so I’m just on the western edge of a time zone).

  6. Congratulations!

    I don’t know who Chaos is talking to. Clearly Mahyhem is either not there or completely invisible.

    I love the primary colored shops.

  7. Nice pics! Stella’s Fish Cafe looks like it’s hopping. Cool looking bike racks too.

    Chaos, you mean you’re going wait until she comes out?
