Last the windchill a minus twenty.
I had to drive around the block to get in a safe location to take this picture.
The sign that was dangling from the crane was not separated as it was when I first saw it. You have to be safe.

Zeke’s Coffee- I just wish you could smell the aroma of these freshly roasted beans.
Yep, it’s coffee!
#1 on the recognizable scent list!
What a lovely hostess gift😀
Thursday, I was going to meet a new baby and wanted to take a gift.
Called around and found wooden milestone blocks/cubes and in the colors of the nursery!
A helpful man answered the phone and said there was one set at their store- Contemporary Concepts.
When I got there I took a look around. Found a couple of Christmas gifts to purchase, too. A very eclectic mix of gifts from elegant tableware to crazy socks .
The colorfully printed Pittsburgh dish towels caught my eye for those who have moved away. Lots of interesting toys and potential baby shower gifts, too. They feature cool Pittsburgh neighborhood t-shirts Neighbor Teaze designed by Julia DiNardo- an elementary school classmate of my son Matthew.
(I won’t go into how the store moved 6 months ago to the Trader Joe’s building, pretty close to my house-that’s another story. Of course, I drove to the old location in Squirrel Hill first. The new location has free parking)
But I finally arrived and was thrilled to find the right present waiting. And in the colors of his nursery, too. Yes, I said it twice cause it was a Serendipitous find!
“Would you like it gift wrapped? “
Now the thought of complimentary gift wrap evokes nostalgia for customer service of yesteryear- and what a lovely touch.
Meet Abby. She did the beautiful gift wrapping.
I asked her if she’d mind being included in my People at Work series And she agreed.
Jen H at WordPress has created the weekly Photo Challenge: Local.
What feels familiar, home. The places you know by heart. Local diner, local playground, local neighborhood, local church,local streets-I live in the city by a park.
I notice I shoot a lot of local coffee, too.
Here’s my iPhone local gallery. Pittsburgh.
Unexpected find outside Zeke’s Coffee, Friday morning.
Steve waits as I capture myself in this golden orb. The weekly photo challenge – harmony
I felt happy the leftover ornament was waiting there with snow on top as we exited Zeke’s.
Definitely through my eyes-struck a chord within me, made me laugh.
“Of course, harmony also has a meaning outside of the world of music: “the quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.” I look forward to seeing Harmony — a photo that is, or makes you feel harmonious — through your eyes.” Michelle W. of WordPress
