This is, I believe, primer. Fun fact: she’s using spray paint, but had to trek out to the suburbs to get it (spray paint isn’t sold within Chicago proper). Go figure.
While Liz and I have had a lot of experience bonding bunnies over the years, we were nervous about tonight. With Daisy’s failing eyesight, we weren’t sure how she would respond to a new environment (and the introduction of a new bunny).
What I remembered of the packaging: it had a white rabbit for a design/logo. And it tasted really good. But there was outer, paper-y wax-y kind of coating that you had to suffer through, before you got to the good stuff.
“No space between these sorted sardines
Crammed in a stitched up kangaroo
Let’s buckle down on a wedding gown
A little straightjacket made for two
Made for crooks like me and you”
Over the weekend, Liz and I had an appointment scheduled at Red Door to visit with their bunnies. It’s a shelter we’ve been to oftentimes in the past (where we found both Quincy [originally Marciano] and Phineas [originally Cowboy]).
With the apple trees growing a bit more, Liz decided she wanted to add more wires to the espalier posts.
Had a small midday treat today, as Liz grabbed a ripe melon from the garden box. I have to confess – I had no idea she was growing these, so this was a total surprise.
What is it about porta potties that make a silly name almost a requirement? I guess it’s something you can’t take too seriously, so a bit of humor helps. I don’t see a name like “Private Palace” being all that convincing.
“I see my grandmother’s hand,
doing just this, dropping peas
into gray gumbo that clings like clay.”
I was standing in the storage area under our deck, and happened to catch a bit of sunlight against our arbor.
As we were sitting, she grabbed my arm suddenly. And whispered for me to look over.
Continuing our tradition of having lazy mornings and going out for brunch, we stopped in at 3rd Coast Cafe.
One of the things Liz and I were wanting to do this week was to visit a museum. We’d talked a bit about the Field Museum (I learned that Liz once worked there while in college). We also considered revisiting Shedd Aquarium.
