When I see this view, it means my work day is over and I can ride home:
When I took this, it was still fairly warm out, but there was a chill in the air and it wasn't long before storms came. I liked the patriotic colors in the sky--warm red where the setting sun hit the clouds, the white of clouds higher up, the deep blue of the clear sky--an auspicious beginning to Memorial Day weekend.

Yesterday Jesus and I went downtown(ish)--we walked around River North, a neighborhood just north of the river and The Loop. It's a beautiful area: skyscrapers, the Riverwalk, Michigan Ave, and I wish I could show you some of the fun sights we saw (Merchandise Mart, Tribune Tower, Marina City, Rock N Roll McDonald's) or the cool restaurant we ate at (Portillo's/Barnelli's), but I FORGOT MY CAMERA. The one thing I should always bring with me, at least for this month, I left at home. I apologize, dear readers and viewers of my pictures. Let me make it up to you with this:

If you know me, you know I love a good picture frame. I may not have a picture to frame, but someday I will. Or not...but I will re-purpose it somehow! This week I took two matching frames (a rare find at the thrift store, where about 97% of my many, many frames come from) and used some magazine cutouts to make personalized white boards.

You don't survive summer in the Naw without wind power and freeze pops. New this year: a window AC unit that effectively cools the area up to and no further than two feet away from itself.

Yes. I took pictures of food. I actually have a "food" setting on my new camera, so I tested it out. Food pics rival selfies in our world of cameras-on-everything, but if We Are What We Eat, then food pics are just another form of selfie, no? With that logic, I am cozy and fattening and welcome at all gatherings.
