Sadly, today is the last day of my vacation. To punctuate the coming of an end, it is raining and gloomy outside after a week of perfect weather. It was good while it lasted... I got to enjoy the sun, see friends and family, work on some projects, and wander around town.
The Hideout Block Party posters I mentioned in my last post led me to do a little online exploration, in which I ended up discovering the first Chicago International Poster Biennial was opening in Grant Park. I went on Friday morning to take a look. There are 127 posters up on display, representing artists from 22 different countries. If you live in Chicago, I recommend taking a look.
Saturday morning, I got up early while it was still misty and cool and took a walk to the farmers market. Since I got there early, there was still plenty of the freshly made donuts and coffee! Everything was so beautiful, I filled my bag to the top with vegetables and flowers. Probably, I was a little over zealous with my purchases... I have a lot of tomatoes to eat now.
So, what to do with these last few vacation hours? I'm thinking with all this rain, it's time to put in a movie and curl up on the couch... and eat some tomatoes.
