Shopping and more food pictures!

I woke up this morning and did Pilates for the first time in month!  In two days we will have been here for our first full month.  And I think Ferguson has finally settled in.

Last Sunday we went to the dog beach.  Ferguson got to travel around in a pack, and make friends, and was much complimented by people!

This is a quiet, foggy morning on one of our daily walks.  This is not stolen from the movie “Big” this is really what my neighborhood looks like!

Sidney’s job is going really well!  He’s pretty much done with training, and is already starting to create a training program for the company since they don’t have one in place!  I switched my job over from a legal filing system to a letter-sized filing system this week!  It’s been quite the project, but I think it looks better and is a much better use of cabinet space.

Yesterday we went to Lakeview on a shopping extravaganza.  Lakeview is a lovely neighborhood, but a little commercial to live in, but a great place to spend a day or evening.

Lovely flower shop in Lakeview

We went to World Market, Trader Joe’s, Target, and Aldi’s!  We were like pack mules by the time we got back to the Garden!!  That is never going to happen again.  My shoulders have never been so sore!!

 

 

We went to a new restaurant, Lady Gregory’s on Friday.  We had the crab cakes, which were very crabby and served with a lovely citrus sauce.  I had the ultimate Grilled cheese with Roasted Tomato Soup (which was the best I ever had!).  Sidney had the Fish and Chips.

Mucho crab!!

Fish and Chips

Amazing tomato soup with an acidic, citrus aftertaste!

Cheesiest

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The natives of this temperate region tell me the trees shouldn’t be flowering and budding, and that we shouldn’t see the lovely daisies and daffodils until May, I assure them that this perfectly normal for March.

Tires in the puddles
Car breaks and bus hydraulics
Soft rumbles nearby

    I love reading about your adventures, Liz! It looks like we may well be in Chicago for Lollapalooza in August, and I would love to see you.
