Lost Kitten

As we were driving around tonight looking for a parking spot, Liz put her hand on my shoulder and said “What is that?”. There was a small shape in the road ahead, and at first I thought it might be a rat. But we both quickly realized it was a really small kitten.


Halloween in Hyde Park, 2022: Plinko Board

We had a blast, watching kids step up and try to “win” their candy. I think the most memorable moments for us were when the kids tried to unsuccessfully play the game (we had several kids just throw the pucks at the board, head-on).


Signs of Halloween

Went outside today, and was delighted to see this fun bit of Halloween decoration up already. We’ve got some new neighbors in the building next door, and I’m fairly certain this was by them.


Staycation in Hyde Park

We opted to take some days off this week, with the express purpose of… well, of not doing anything at all. No housework, no errands, just anything that gave us a bit of calm and relaxation. Because for both of us, we’ve felt a little stretched.

Today, we just ambled around the neighborhood. And that kind of pace was just right for us.


A Slow Day

Much later in the evening, Liz described today as “a slow day.” And I think that’s pretty spot on. We didn’t rush anywhere, we didn’t need to worry about work. We just casually went about things at our own place.


A Momentary Danger

Each time that shuttle bus would come by, it would likely hit this dangling branch… increasing the chance that it’d come down (either on the shuttle, or on some of the parked cars nearby).


The Helicopter Hallucination

Now, I’m no veteran. I’ve had zero military experience. But I understand enough about helicopters to know that they’re loud. That even far away, far up in the sky… helicopters are loud.

This thing… was not.


Broken Meter

On our way, we spotted this broken parking meter – splayed out on the sidewalk. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but something serious and big must have caused that bend, at its base.


Smelling the Roses

After work today, Liz and I went for a short walk. There had been rain, we had a little time to kill before needing to make dinner for the bunnies… and we’re altogether way too sedentary. So walk it was.
