The Heartland Cafe

If you are ever in Chicago, go to Rogers Park and try the Heartland Cafe.
It is a cultural icon in a very diverse neighborhood.
Takes you back in time a little bit, to the 70's, hippies, activists and all.
The food is great, too, lots of vegetarian choices.
Local politicians and even Barack Obama held rallies there.
A unique place to visit.

Have a great weekend and enjoy your summer!

Street Art in Rogers Park

That's why I love Chicago,
there is always something new to discover.
Rogers Park is a neighborhood on the north side of Chicago, 
on Lake Michigan.
Very hip and diverse.
Can't wait to go back.

Have a great Sunday!
And for us soccer fans, may your team win.

I love, love, love Chicago...

Saw these colorful trees around a playground by the lake shore in Chicago on our recent trip.
Sure brightens up the landscape, made me smile.
I do love Chicago!
This city has something for everyone.

Have a great week!
Enjoy summer!

Summer Time...

Just a little walk through my garden,
to show you what's blooming right now.
Had a great long weekend
and enjoyed all the beautiful weather.

We went to Chicago today,
pics to come on my next post.

Love Haagen Dazs Gelato

See you soon!

Taste of West Africa

We always like to explore new flavors, so we were pleasantly surprised when
 we discovered a wonderful restaurant in downtown Fayetteville, NC, on our recent trip.
The food is truly unique and delicious.
The ladies prepare everything fresh.
I had the spinach stew with waakye rice and fried sweet plantains.
This was the first time I tasted food from Ghana and I am very impressed.
Definintely a place to go back to.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Finally, it's here...

S  P  R  I  N  G

„Frühling lässt sein blaues Band
Wieder flattern durch die Lüfte;
Süße, wohlbekannte Düfte
Streifen ahnungsvoll das Land.
Veilchen träumen schon,
Wollen balde kommen.
Horch, von fern ein leiser Harfenton!
Frühling, ja Du bist 's!
Dich hab’ ich vernommen! “
von Eduard Mörike 1829
~ ~ ~
Spring lets her blue ribbon
Flutter in the breeze again;
Sweet, familiar scents
Drift with promise o'er the land.
Violets lie dreaming now,
Soon to be awakened.
—Listen, the sound of a harp,
    so faint from so far!
Spring, it is you!
I can hear you coming!

Kure Beach, North Carolina

Thought I would show you some pics from our trip to the beach in North Carolina.
I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
We had a fantastic time.
* * *
I discovered Fado and I love it, especially Ana Moura.
My kind of music.

Have a great week ahead!
