Farewell, Summer

September 21, 2011

Summer has come to a close. Fall is here. Winter is not far behind, and I hibernate during winter. So I thought it would be good to recount some of the things I’ve done this summer.

Attended Maifest in Lincoln Square

Visited The Art Institute

Looked out over the city from the Hancock building

Attended Blues Fest

Listened to Music in the Park at Millennium Park

Worked out with the rest of Chicago at Millennium Park

Took pictures of the bean

Watched the face water features at Millennium Park

Enjoyed amazing food at Taste of Chicago

Purchased fresh produce at the Park Ridge Farmer’s Market

Visited Buckingham Fountain

Took in the scenery downtown during lunch time runs

Cooked out with friends

Vacationed in Lake Geneva, WI, and Orange Beach, AL

Joined a book club

Enjoyed a couple of picnics

Spent a couple of evenings on the porch swing with the hubs

Knowing my memory, I’m sure I have forgotten something, but it’s been a busy summer! And I have at least 2 more events on the agenda: a nighttime airplane tour of Chicago and a visit to the Skokie driving range. Then, the hibernation begins! Farewell, Summer!

What fun things did you do this summer?
