Which Way Challenge


The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form.

This week I’m sharing a street in Illinois. What a cute, festive sidewalk.

You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, canals, railroad tracks, you name it.

See more Which Way photos by clicking here. You’ll be amazed at where people are going.

Reverse Parades


Here are some home decorations from the Northfield and Northbrook 4th of July Reverse Parades. Due to CCP Virus restrictions, rather than the usual 4th of July festivities, some towns hosted Reverse Parades. These neighboring communities had Reverse Parades where people decorate their homes and spectators can walk, ride or drive by to enjoy them.

Participants vie for gift card prizes from local businesses. In Northfield, winners are chosen by popular vote. You must live in Northfield to vote. Northbrook has a panel of judges consisting of the Police Chief, Fire Marshall, school principals, the Library Director, etc.

More from the home shown above. On the table they had hand sanitizer, and free flags or lollipops.


I like what they did with the stairs.
