Sunday afternoon...

Sunday afternoons are lovely if you can sneak away and do absolutely nothing planned for hours ... like lunch after church with friends. I took the long way home through the west side of downtown Minneapolis. Past "Block E" with its peep shows around every corner, across First Ave...a nod to Prince (the artist formerly known)....a right at the Basilica and down Hennepin to Uptown.

I spent the previous afternoon making my own moisturizer and deodorant, just as an experiment - its going well, and I wanted to peak into Tao Natural Foods, a neighborhood cafe and corner store. The store was lacking in foods but full of medicines - an apothecary of sorts. I stopped for some herbal anxiety stuff, maybe it'll work, but my olfactories were soon infatuated with a bottle of cedar essential oils. Northwoods, you have my heart, but I think I need some lemon...
