Jientje arrived Saturday morning, as planned. Right time. Right place.
We had breakfast at Egglectic Cafe in Rolling Meadows and then we drove downtown and took pictures along the lakefront. There is little that is prettier than the lakefront early on a sunny morning.
Afterwards, we parked near the Sheraton, where BlogHer was held, and we walked. And walked. And walked - all the while taking picture. Many, many pictures.
By the time I dropped her off at her hotel at 5:30 last evening, I was toast. TOAST I tell you. It's over 40 miles from downtown Chicago to my home, and it was tough staying awake on the drive home. Good news is, though, that by the time I got home, #3 Son's temp was down to under 100 - so maybe he's coming out the other side of his flu.
I WAS going to post pictures last night. (Actually, I had intended to post pictures during the day - but it didn't work out.) But I was really fried when I got home. I farmed a little (SOMEbody STOP ME!!!), wrote this post, and went to bed. In fact, I'm sleeping right now. Unless, of course, it's after 5am - in which case, I'm awake, I'm awake.
And I'm out taking pictures with Jientje.
