rainy day

Today was quite interesting! Our whole neighborhood (well, at least a few blocks of it) woke up to discover that we had no water and were in a midst of a nasty thunderstorm. Catherine and I are working from home, so we had to run off to grab breakfast and use a washroom. My plan was to work from home and keep running off every time we needed a bathroom, but there were too many creepy, winking out of work men hanging around. We came back home soaking wet, from our water logged shoes up to our hips, and decided to make the best of it. We ended up going downtown to Macy's for lunch while we watched the Joffery Ballet practicing across the street. (I also ate tofu for the first time. It was weird.) Then we went to The Art Institute of Chicago where we looked at art and hung out in the members lounge sitting on a plush couch, sipping free coffee, drawing, and listening to a room full of "rich" women discussing everything from world traveling to what they expect out of Heaven. (I love listening in on these private discussions. It's quite entertaining.) A friend met up with us and we saw an exhibit, Kings, Queens, and Courtiers: Art in Early Renaissance France. The highlight of this bad day turned good was standing in front of a Leonardo da Vinci painting soaking it all in. Then when we got home this evening we had water! What a great day!
