It’s way past spring break. And summer break is too far away. Thank goodness there’s Memorial Day weekend where I’ll go back to Kentucky. And then summer break in Portland, Maine (which will have a separate post soon to follow!)
I’m suffering from a continuous sinus headache probably due to all those manicured mini-flower gardens (hydrangeas, tulips, daisies) I walk by on State Street. Or my recent runs along the lake ending in me collapsing on the grassy lawn. Maybe the bugs that crawl into my sweaty pony tail have something to do with allergies. As much as I complain, I can’t complain that winter in Chicago has passed (for now.)
The heat lamps at the CTA platforms shut off March 31. At least three weeks went by in which the heat lamps would have been useful in my morning commutes. Oh well. The snow has turned to rain. A lot of rain. Thunderstorms and lightening. Nights when the window can stay open even though the undergrads throw loud roof parties immediately across the street from me. And whops. Being on the 10th floor, I seem to forget to draw the curtains while tip-toeing from the shower to my room. Uh oh. Free show?
