Today is the mid-point of my sabbatical.
Did a food rescue from Bruegger's Bagel Bakery. They were great; they had someone help carry the donations to my car. This was especially good because Bruegger's has no parking lot and my car was 2 blocks away.
Then I hopped on the el and went to Lincoln Park Zoo. I hadn't been there in 20 years (I think?) and this place is wonderful! For one thing, it's free. In addition to animals, it has a conservatory, gardens, and a nature trail. I got very close to a tiger and a gorilla. I also saw seals, zebras, giraffes. What a place! One interesting thing was that I didn't get tired like I did yesterday at the museum. Was it because I was solo and able to just determine what I did when? Was it because the zoo was mostly outdoors? Hmmm.
Another day of gorgeous weather too. Sunny (not all the day, but for much of it) and cool in the 60's. Heaven for me.
Tomorrow evening I have tickets to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. Not sure yet what I'll do during the day - maybe something low-key since I'll have a late night. Oh, and the local LGBTQ group has a potluck on Friday, I gotta figure out what I'm bringing.
