Since I don't ever have my act together to do "weekend review" type posts... I'll give you a mid-month, what we've been up to post instead! We've had some really fun late summer weekends, which I've been soaking up after a couple years of working almost every weekend. We've been mostly sticking around town, just enjoying the fun stuff our big city has to offer. Some recent highlights...
|I worked with one other girl to build this compost bin. We literally took |
apart a wooden pallet that Home Depot donated, and hammered it
back together to look like this! I was pretty proud!
|Joe did a TON of weed pulling, mulching, and cleaning up of the overgrown plants.|
|A slight contrast to community service, huh?|
Also, don't you like Joe's new hat?
|The Windy City Wine Festival wasn't the greatest thing I've ever been to |
(the lines were sooooo long!),
but the tickets were free for us!
It was a beautiful evening, and Grant Park is always a nice setting.
|No big surprise, the beer area was our favorite part!|
Soaking up the last of summer also includes:
Drinks at great beer bars
Running and dinner with some great ladies
Another 5k coming up in a few weeks
Dinner outside, best when cooked by friends
Walking to restaurants in our neighborhood
We're both ready for the cooler temperatures and the slower pace that comes with the beginning of fall, so I'm not too upset that summer is about over. It's been a good one, for sure! Anything else you're trying to squeeze out of the last days of warmer weather?
