Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Hess Gas Station in Bloomingdale Shaw LeDroit Park

View of Hess gas station from bus stop on RI Ave NW
I really don't know why I like the Hess gas station so much that is at the intersection of Rhode Island Avenue and New Jersey Avenue (and near Florida Avenue) in NW as much as I do. Maybe it's because of the great location, maybe it's because gas is always less per gallon than the other nearby gas stations, maybe because it's easy to drive into and usually there's an available pump, maybe because there's a Dunkin Donuts "alliance" store there and they have great coffee, or maybe because they have car vacuum cleaners and an air pump that works. I asked a friend whether he liked it and said no, he didn't and the reason was that he always had to wait to pay for gas as the cashier was taken up with people buying just one soda or a pack of cigarettes or lottery tickets.  He just wants to get gas, pay for it, and go. I think I'll start a poll on this one and see what comes up. How do you like your neighborhood gas station?
