Why yes, it IS April, but we aren't seeing any weather that feels warm! I wore gloves, without exception, every time I was out - most of our highest temperatures were just around 50 degrees Fahrenheit. While I love cold weather more than most people, I have to admit to being ready to move into something just a tad warmer...
My week was filled with preparations for moving (down the hall, but it involved two different landlords for each of the apartments, a renovation about to start in the new apartment, and plans for renovations the second we're out of our current digs), visits to my doctor, and accompanying a friend to her appointments too! If there's ever a market for guided tours of Northwestern Hospital in Chicago, I will be the first person to qualify as a guide.
AND!!! the most fun might have been going to Leslie Hindman Auction House, to preview the recent auction of Luxury Accessories and Vintage Fashion. (click here to see the results) When Slim and I arrived, there was nobody else visiting, so we got to rummage about uninhibitedly. She tried on quite a few beautiful things... Ah, the loveliness, and the dreams, and the curiosity about the lives these objects have touched...
