Notes From Liz

She’s left notes for me in the past (see below), but usually she’s around when that happens. We still talk each night on the phone, but it definitely feels weird to be apart for so long.

Tending to the Front Yard

The front yard really is a lovely thing to see. I’d argue it’s the nicest looking plot of lawn on the block, but then… I’m a little biased in this regard. I am still awed when I think about how this all used to look, before Liz and Julie tackled it.

Backyard Sunday

A lovely photo of Liz, with our house in the background. Bit by bit, we’re making things better. I cannot wait until this backyard area is all cleaned up. I’m truly looking forward to inviting folks over to come and hang out. Can’t wait.

At Woodlawn Tap on the Weekend

A lot of the tables were taken up (blame it on a nice Saturday evening), so Bob and I grabbed some stools at the bar. It’s always neat coming here with Bob, as this was a bar he frequented many years ago, when he was working on the South Side.

Backyard Plans

The good news: we’re getting some landscapers to come in, and do all the work for us. We priced out a few options, and the one we’re going with is having an outside company come in, clear the yard, and level it for us. After they’re done, we’re going to get a delivery of sod and lay that down ourselves.

I like this photo because it captures a lot of what we do, when we arrive home. Which is namely: pausing at the sidewalk, and looking at all the flowers that have started to bloom.

Liz, Working on the Front Yard

Liz had a day off on Friday, and I arrived home to find her working in the yard. On Julie’s advice, the yard was left untouched (to provide cover/warmth until the cold finally passed). Now that it’s warmer out, Liz wanted to give the front yard a little more attention.

Easter in Frankfort

On arriving in Frankfort on Easter Sunday, we found (to Liz’s great delight) that there was an egg hunt set up for us, in the backyard. In fact, the area spanned all three sides of the house (minus the front yard).

Dim Sum at Ming Hin (Chinatown, Chicago)

One interesting thing about this place is the ordering process. Instead of roving carts that you’d call over to the table, there were mostly roving waitstaff. Your table gets a large menu with images of all the items, along with blank box in the corner of each. Fill out the quantities you want, and someone takes your order.
