* A Long Weekend *


‘Twas a long weekend.  Drove over to Chicago Friday afternoon and did some shopping for a few specialty items that just aren’t available anywhere but “the city”.  Spent the evening at an outdoor concert at Grant Park.  The Chicago Symphony Orchestra was performing the “Rhenish Symphony”.  It was a soft “southern” night, mild, a bit humid but tolerable.  Saturday was lunch at Smoques, a little BBQ place that has the best bbq pork and brisket that I’ve ever had. That evening (the 4th) went to the fireworks in Evanston and they were great.  Had a wonderful time….


Sunday morning, after a very nice, tasty breakfast at O’Malley’s Pub ‘n’ Grille, I loaded the car and launched it back in the general direction of Indiana.  There is too much road construction going on and if you don’t know any of the alternative routes to take the trip can be a long one, especially on a holiday weekend.

Kind of a grueling day today.  Spent all morning and part of the afternoon cleaning carpets in the bedrooms and living room…, (and I hate moving furniture !!!!!!!).  With that finished, the lawn was looking overgrown with with all the rain we’ve had, so that was done and, well, that’s about how things have been around here for nearly a month now…., just one job after another !

Right now, tonight, I’m just too tired for any serious thoughts about writing, besides, the nib on the pen is broken and the ink bottle is empty.





There’s a little angel

Inside of my head

Who’s telling me sweetly

That I should just go to bed.

  1. Sounds like you had a lovely time! Sometimes, we do a lot more living in one weekend than we do in an entire week. It’s been a while since I last visited but I’m glad to see you are doing well!!

    Hoper you’re having a wonderful end of your week!

    1. Hi Mari, So great to hear from you. Been a busy week (and wet) here but a lot done. Will be going on a short trip this weekend to a nearby town and visiting a couple of museums and an auto show. How have you been? Hoping all is ok with you. … 🙂
