February 4: a stranger (actually taken on 2/5)
“The Bean.” In the three times I’ve been to Chicago, I’ve never been to see The Bean. There were lots of strangers there!
February 5: 10am
Adam and I could not wear our Giants gear during the actual game (superstitious? us?), so I wore my t-shirt out to brunch (and then on the flight home the next day after the win… hurrah!).
February 6: dinner
We got back home Monday afternoon, then needed to head out to meet with our mortgage broker (yup), then went to the grocery store, so by the time we got home at almost 8 we had no desire to make real dinner, so microwavable mac n cheese it was. (This was probably the lamest night ever for this prompt – we actually eat some pretty interesting and healthy dinners around here!)
February 7: button
I ordered this custom notebook clutch from Etsy to hold three LobotoME notepads (Feed Me, Fit Me, Save Me). It’s sort of our go-to household planner.
** I skipped February 3 (hands – just never got around to it), 8 (sun – it never came out!) and 9 (front door – our plain brown apartment door is completely uninteresting).
Today’s prompt: words.
This is the mug I keep at work. I purchased it at the American Art Museum after seeing Mike Wilkins’s Preamble on display. A pretty perfect mug for a lawyer, I think.
I’m headed out of the town for the weekend to our annual college reunion Super Bowl weekend party in Chicago. (Although I’ve missed the last two years to snow and work, respectively.) We booked the tickets back when Adam was convinced the Giants weren’t even going to be in the playoffs, otherwise we’d most likely be watching Sunday’s game on our couch, away from distractions. It’s going to be nerve-wracking to have to watch the game with a few dozen other people… including several Pats fans.
I’m going to try to keep up with the photo-a-day on Twitter, but I’ll post them here sometime after I get back.
A lot of people I follow online (huh, ten years ago that would have sounded really creepy) participated in the January photo-a-day challenge. I was excited to hear that there was going to be a February photo-a-day challenge so I could jump right on that bandwagon and play along.
Today’s prompt: your view today.
This is what I see when I look out my bedroom window — Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, the Capitol. I love this city.
