It is perfect. There is that breeze with the mixed up smells of spring, car exhaust, and humidity. The back door is propped open and we’ve put the deck furniture back out (what little we have!). It took me 10 minutes to plant some flowers and basil in starter pots, so we will hopefully have growing things soon.
We don’t have the heat on anymore, and windows are open throughout the house. Bikes were brought up from the basement and snow shovels are taking their place. I live in flip-flops in the summer, and have begun to wear them every day now.
My last final exam is on May 4th. Summer will then begin, and I can’t WAIT. Conferences, weddings, family and friends visits, beach volleyball, biking, rollerblading…and work, of course. 🙂 Our home will be full of the sounds of laughter and music, with back porch and kitchen philosophy dominating in the evenings.
I love Chicago. I love life, and its accompanying trials and joys. I love warm weather, and friends, and family. I love serving the Faith, and seeing the amazing change that is happening in the Chicago community.
i decided to check out some of the links on andrews blog to other blogs of people that i dont know to hopefully learn about what is going on in chicago through the eyes of others. i dont think i have met you before but i may have when i was in chicago last november, because i met many many youth, but i hope we become friends when i move there at the end of the month. i just wanted to say that i really enjoy your poetic depection of “every little thing” and it makes me mucho excited about moving.
Hi Aaron! I hear that you’ll be moving in with Chad. I may have met you, but in any case I’m sure we’ll get to hang out once you move to Chicago. I’m sure you’ll love it here.
aaron’s cool, showlei, and by cool, i mean totally sweet.
Well, a recommendation by Dan is good as gold (maybe better). 🙂
Aaron is sweet like a buttercup. In fact, you should call him buttercup. he would like it if you did. At least, I think he would.
Oh, and YAY! for propped open back doors, kitchen philosophy (very nice), and for MASSIVE GROWTH in Chi-town!!
