A Taste of Autumn

The majority of the weekend has been cold and wet - downright dreary, you could say. At the moment we are staying at the Marquis residence in Minneapolis. We came to visit and to attend Dawn's wedding (photos will be posted after I get home.)

Even though the weather put a damper on some of the wedding plans, we were a bit excited at the idea of putting on a sweater and curling up on the couch to watch a movie and knit something wooly. We needed a break from the steamy heat we'd come to expect. Today, however, has gotten to be somewhat depressing. I want summer back! Just for a couple of weeks and then I'll be ready for the leaves to turn colors and the air to turn crisp.

Tomorrow we catch a bus back home to the Windy City, where all of my energy will be put toward the big move. I can't believe we are moving in 6 days!!!!! There is so much I have to take care of.

- packing
- changing our utilites
- forwarding mail
- getting parking permits

I hope I can accomplish everything, and the move will go smoothly and quickly.... We shall see.

Good luck on your move! Sorry we couldn't meet up this weekend. Did you get caught in any flash fludding? Can't wait to see your pics of your weekend and your new apt. Love you, Chrissy
