On Sunday, my dad made brisket. And, this is an all day event. But, well worth it when dinner rolls around!
I can't quite remember what I did this day. I know I took the dogs for a walk, but beyond that, I don't think I did too much. And I'm ok with that. I can veg like the best of them- and I don't feel guilty about it. Sometimes you just need to do absolutely nothing. I think it's good for the soul!
So my soul was well and good when I left, because Monday I did much the same! But, I had company in the way of a brother, dogs and a good book.

Tuesday my mom, dad and I went to Oak Park, to take the Frank Lloyd Wright walking tour, and tour of his studio and first house. It was totally fun, and the weather made for a great day.
We each got mp3 players, headsets and a map, and walked around a few blocks, stopping at his houses learning factoids. My mom had fun navigating the map, and my dad had fun taking pictures.
The houses were great- they are called "Prairie Style". If you are ever in Chicago, I highly recommend checking this out.
