Sleepy time

Idgie has found some weird locations to sleep. One of them now being the edge of a side table.

Let's All Go to the Movies

Back at the theater! The Music Box reopened and is showing several films including Inception for its 10 year anniversary. After, we had dinner and drinks at Carol's. Feels somewhat normal again.

I'm supposed to be logged on to my company network from 8:30-5 but sometimes I hate staying at home so I walked over to a nearby coffee shop so I could at least sit outside. Plus, another killer sunset from our patio.

I made these

I made sweet potato enchiladas! I should've used green sauce but otherwise, they turned out great!

Went back The Botanical Cafe for an iced latte and to admire all the beautiful plants :)

Found these awesome pothole covers by Jim Bachor! Love them so much. Check him out on instagram - @jimbachor. Also grabbed a drink at First Sip in Argyle and enjoyed a walk in my neighborhood.

Rode our bikes to Old Town to grab lunch at Small Cheval! Unfortunately, Au Cheval was closed for some reason. We went back over to Lincoln Park and sat outside with our cheeseburgers :)

Today my eye is purple and green, much like this picture I took of a side door of a nearby house.

Purple and green

Today my eye is a little green and purple! The purple actually brings out the green in my eyes so that helps. I also grabbed a coffee at Botanical Cafe on Lincoln which also has a ton of awesome plants, big and small. Definitely check it out!

Black eyes

Well, my injury is officially turning into a black eye! I also surveyed more damage around the neighborhood. The first one is the same spot as yesterday; this tree fell and bent this pole in half!

Broken heads and trees

Sooo yesterday I had a little accident in the kitchen. Well, not that little. I had the dishwasher door open and forgot about it. I grabbed a huge glass measuring container the size of my head, I turned to put it on the breakfront and tripped over the door, fell and slammed the glass container into my head! SO SO HARD. I immediately felt nauseous and really out of it the rest of the day and the next couple days too. I definitely had a concussion (you can probably tell with the picture below and my droopy eyelid and a little bit of purple around my eye). Now I'm scared to do the dishes! Anyways, I'll be fine. Just need to rest. I took a walk around the neighborhood to look at the damage and check out this downed tree! There's branches and tree trunks everywhere and some blocking off streets.

Storm's a brewin!!

A huge storm moved through Chicago tonight! It was insane to watch. Within 30 seconds or maybe a minute - the weather went from a standstill to 70mph winds. Trees down everywhere and power outages! I've never seen a worse storm before and it only lasted maybe a half hour. Check out this article with some footage of the storm. Insane!

The Weeknd

Had brunch at the new Pick Me Up Cafe! They moved to Andersonville and I do miss the old one but they did a great job with the new location. Still super colorful and the server noticed my Golden Girls mask and pointed me in the direction of the table with the Golden Girls cartoon on top! AJ made pasta for dinner with prosciutto, cheese and cherry tomatoes and then we lazily watched TV and went to bed early. Sundayyyyys!

The burbs

These beautiful flowers are out in front of our apt building. Lots of butterflies and bees visiting. I baked some cookies in the afternoon and then we took the Metra up to Winnetka for a work bbq with my co-workers! So nice to see them in person and get out of our neighborhood for a bit.

Took a walk and found some good liberal signage on our street. Started a new book - The Jungle by Upton Sinclair - I know it's dark but I've had it for years and I've heard it's amazing. Bought some more books today at Women and Children First bookstore. Also, my cousin's daughter was on the Today show! She's a super fan of Luke Bryan and got to meet him via Zoom on live TV!

I think it's safe to say that pictures of the moon look better from my Canon 77D than from my iPhone.
