I just had to take a detour - for one blog (from the 'renovation review').
Cabin fever got the best of me & I had to get some fresh air at lunch today!! It was going to be over 50 degrees, and in the Chicago-area - this time of year, THAT is a big deal! You could actually be 'coat-less', for the hardy. I detoured to the park with a 'grab n go' lunch.
What a treat in the middle of an insane day! The biggest unexpected surprise was seeing the migration of flocks of Sandhill Cranes, heading northwest. Listening to them calling to each other - almost like a dove's coo - was hypnotic. Between that and the 55 degree temps, it was near to impossible to go back to work!
But now I have renewed hope, that Spring is on it's way. And even though Punxsutawney Phil may have seen his shadow (what IS it with me and small furry animals?), he can't stop Spring from coming ...... (hope springs eternal!)
