While in Chicago recently, I had long slow periods of doing very little,
which can be a good thing. Simple pleasures included:
gorgeous peonies in bloom
the new Modern Wing of the Art Institute
rain on Lake Michigan...
...adding sweetness to the heavy foliage of June.
the University of Chicago at night
driving on Lake Shore Drive all the way to Evanston
discovering the store Brimfield (in Andersonville) with S.
spending time with nieces and nephews who are nearly all grown up
reading The Book Thief and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
custard filled cupcakes made by my niece
