dazed and confused

This cow looks a bit dazed and confused and that is kind of the way I feel after returning from a visit to see my son who lives in Chicago.  I returned yesterday and today I think I finally feel rested enough to get back to work.  I did not waste a minute while I was there.  sold

Clint and his mama.
Below is the view from his bedroom window. I know because he gave up his bed to Dan and me.

A view of the city from the Lincoln Park zoo. 

I walked ALL over the city including along Lake Michigan.  It was a beautiful day and the water was a gorgeous turquoise.

The amphitheater at Millennium 

I visited the Art Institute of Chicago and discovered a new artist that I was not familiar with.  One of my favorite paintings in the museum.  The "shoe shop" by Elizabeth Sparhawk-Jones.  I just ordered a book about her.  "Elizabeth Sparhawk-Jones, the artist who lived twice"

Another favorite by John Singer Sargent.  Amazingly beautiful.  

A view of the city from inside the museum.  


  1. Bonjour ma chère amie,

    Je suis heureuse que tu aies passé de belles heures près de votre fils... Ce sont des moment précieux lorsque les enfants ne sont plus à la maison.
    Merci de partager avec nous ces magnifiques photos. Je suis certaine que tu as beaucoup apprécié la visite au musée. Il est très enrichissant de pouvoir admirer de belles oeuvres.

    ☼ Gros bisous ☼

  2. I always love your cows, Carol! Also love seeing the photos of our downtown. Since I do not work down there, I don't see it as much as I used to. Gorgeous!!
