spring & community
Last week I was in Ghana and it was really hot there. :-) So then yesterday when I returned to Chicago, the cool spring temperatures were a welcome change. So I took a walk with my new neighbors from my housing co-op (2 of us had moved in before I left for Africa and 4 more moved in while I was gone) to visit a neighbor a few blocks away and pick up some bulbs. We shared tea and cookies and walked back to plant our bulbs. Inside is still a disaster of boxes but we dug in the ground for the first time and visited our neighbors for the first time and it's cool and spring. Life is good. And I managed to stay up until 9pm so slept until after 6 so maybe jetlag won't be that bad either!
