Recognize this skyline? I’ll give you a minute to look at it closely…
Off to the left is the Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). You might recognize a few other building profiles. In the front is Lake Michigan. Got it yet?
Here’s another clue…
A city trapped in the reflection of the Cloud Gate, aka The Bean in Millenium Park. Now do you know it?
Yeah, we just got back from a couple of weeks away from home in Chicago and various parts of Wisconsin. Chicago was a side trip, a short family vacation with just the three of us before we headed to Wisconsin for family visits and reunions. A time for taking a stroll down memory lane while making some new memories. Explaining to my son who everyone was and how they were related to us… over and over and over again. His head is swimming with first cousins once-removed, second cousins, great aunts and uncles. (To be honest, my head is swimming a bit too.)
So here I am this morning, back at home and trying to figure out where to start. Where and how I want to dive back to real life. We’ve got the dog to pick up from the kennel and library books to return. Shopping to do and mail to sort through. Oh yeah, and work, I have to be there today too.
I decided to start with laundry, and downloading my photos. You can’t go wrong with either of those. And saying hi here… I’m back! I missed you all! I’ll share more with you soon.
