Day #1 of 3:
Just a hop, skip and jump away this time with suitcase in tow to the Windy City!
(Actually, it was was quite windy this time...this time was THE most danger my suitcase has been in teetering on the edge of a condo roof to capture the Chicago skyline in the distance - thanks to Diann and Wes for their safety concerns!)
We painted and constructed furniture. Conversed. Commiserated. Consumed. And saw our adorable Grandkitty, Oliver - definitely the clown in the family! Oliver was trouble when it came to being around painting...he needed to be shut in the guest room and found a cozy place to rest in the big sombrero. Here he is just waking up after being curled up in the hat brim.
We then met up with Diann and Larry and will spend the weekend at their lovely condo in the city. Together we board the 'el' and head to Millennium Park for a fabulous concert featuring concert pianist Valentina Lisitsa peforming Grieg's Piano Concerto. To witness perfect day turning into spectacular night under the stars hearing this music is awe-inspiring.I could have gone home so happy after this point. It had been a great day being with Anne and Jed and Diann and Larry. Wes, too. But, no! There are more good times to follow with this latest installment of the Pink Suitcase Chronicles. Coming next: Rolling, Rolling, Rolling on the River...
