While I was taking out the trash last night, I happened to see a small outline on one of the chairs on our front porch. After letting my eyes adjust a bit, I looked closer and saw one of the neighborhood cats just… lounging about, without a care in the world.
I’m a big fan of TextExpander, and it’s something I use daily. I’m not quite at a superuser level, but the bits of time it saves me has been well worth the price of the software.
After work today, Liz and I spent some time outside sitting on the back porch. It was a good idea, but the light dropped faster than we anticipated, and we were barely out there for 30 minutes before packing up and heading in.
Confused why there would be any noises from upstairs, Liz and I looked at one another. And then realized: the bunnies have gotten past the gate!
The event is always chock full of incredibly interesting and creative Chicago folks. I’m always so delighted to be included alongside all these super cool people.
Ben ended up arriving about 5 minutes after me, and luckily for us… we had no problems at all with registration. Aside from our name tags being missing. All that rushing made for a really stressful start to the day.
As I was working, I couldn’t help but notice our neighbor’s tree once again. Where it had just started to change just a few days ago… the shift from green to red now seems to have taken over half the tree.
I’m heading out to the suburbs to attend Pinball Expo 2016. The reason for the ridiculously early wakeup is for me to shower and hit the road by 6AM, so that I can attend the Expobrawl tournament (which starts at 7:30 AM).
He seemed really amused at my request, and was laughing the whole time. I really do have an interest in other people’s jobs, particularly when they are markedly different than my own. If I see someone in the act of doing their job, I almost always have a list of questions that pop into my head.
Most of these photos are from a prior visit, but they still don’t quite do the whole place justice. It’s a campus to be sure, and it’s just a sprawling series of buildings. I’ve only been up here a handful of times, and I get lost every time I go in.
A few nights ago, I woke up and found the TV was off. When I reached for my phone to check Facebook, I saw a new photo appear that I didn’t recognize.
On Saturday, Liz and I walked outside to find that someone had taken one of our rabbit lawn ornaments… and placed it inside the fountain, in our front yard.
Over the weekend, Liz and I were marveling at the tree in our neighbor’s yard. The day was crisp, the sun was bright, and the leaves in the tree seemed to almost ripple as they slowly turned from green to red.
After talking between ourselves, and in conference with Bob, we’re refocusing on the second floor as our next area to address. But before that can happen, we need to finish up the basement first so we have a place to move all the stuff that’s currently on the second floor.
Spotted this while walking home from work. Tons of tables, each table holding tons of boxes, each box holding tons of books.
