Weekend Update

My first Sunday in Chicago included:

  • Posting an ad for free moving boxes & getting rid of them all to grateful Chicagoans ("Sharing is caring!" one said.)
  • Finding places for all the kitchen platters, bakeware, etc that has been sitting on the counters and/or floor since Friday
  • Buying a used bike with a cushy seat (including sheepskin seat cover!) from a nice lady that smelled like canned corn, who'd posted on Craigslist
  • A little grocery shopping (Can't do more than I can carry for several blocks.)
  • Searching Craigslist for an old-lady shopping cart
  • A neighborhood walk out in the beautiful, breezy Sunday afternoon
  • Ignoring the book boxes left unpacked
  • Sitting in my comfy chair, looking out my bay windows and enjoying the beautiful, breezy Sunday afternoon

I actually live here. So strange!

You've done so much already! I'd love to see a picture of the bike. It will come in so handy! Your apt. is adorable and can't wait to see it again once everything is in place. xoxo
