Chicago, Here I Come!

Monday, December 19th, 2005

cairo Christian chapelI’m going to Chicago on Monday, just for the day. It’s about a 4 hour drive one way. I am going to see my friend, Iris C., who I used to see all the time but I haven’t seen her in over a year. We will find good meals in the windy city. And talk until I have to go home for the night.

I love driving, I love Iris, I love Chicago. I’m getting an adrenalin rush just typing all this.

Today I realized that I’ll be in the city during holiday season. I’m not big on Christmas, but I’m very very big on cities. Especially Chicago! I love driving home down Michigan Avenue during the holidays, and seeing all the windows decked out. This time of year, you’ll drive by after the stores are closed, and people are lined up to look into each window and get a peek.

I probably will not be checking email for a day. Orders for patterns and/or yarn will be handled promptly on Tuesday morning. I hope this is not an inconvenience to anyone out there.

I’ll catch you Tuesday.

Photo: (Unrelated subject, other than time of year…) I took this photo on December 26, 2004, at a Christian chapel in Cairo, Egypt. The inscription is in Greek. I was offered a candle to light and ask G-d for anything I wanted. I bought a candle (it supports maintenance of the building) and just gave thanks for being in Cairo, how could I ask for anything else?
