Day 218

I fried up my polenta log this morning.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but I love that stuff!  


I've been preoccupied with thoughts of my new job and family visiting.  I have completely forgotten to take a single picture lately!  This one doesn't really count since I took it a couple of months ago, but it is a funny one of my niece.  She would be horrified to see that this picture showing her wearing socks with those shoes is on the internet, so don't tell her.  :)

Day 217

Volunteer Park Observatory

Day 216

We had the first outdoor movie night of the summer at Dean and Marie's, and it was SO great!  What a great way for me to celebrate my job offer yesterday!  I GOT A NEW JOB!!  It's 9 miles from home and it's better pay, better hours, better schedule, better everything!

Day 214

I'm practicing interview answers with McGuirk.  He doesn't give me a whole lot of feedback other than cracking open an eye now and then.  I'm interviewing for a job today at 2 PM!  If I get it, my commute will go from 43 miles one way down to a measly 9 miles.  I hope I get it!

Days 211 and 212

A little reading before work.  Inspired by my cousin Lois to read the Count of Monte Cristo.   
Has it really been a year already since this bloomed?  Or does it bloom more than once a year?

Day 210

Happy 7/11!  Did you go get a free Slurpee today?  I didn't.  I did go hiking with my dad, brother and sister.  It was amazing.  We saw some goats!  I'll post some pictures on Crown Hill eventually.

Day 201

Did I go for a hike today?  No, I went to REI downtown.  Got some hiking boots to prepare myself for some actual hiking.
