My employment-free ride of the day was to the drug store to pick up a prescription and to the pet store to stock up on cat food. I know, I live such a glamorous life. But wait, it gets really exciting – I forgot my lock key in my garage. What a plot twist! So at the drug store I had to use the drive-through window and the pet store was nice enough to let me bring Oma inside. Whew, crisis averted! As you can see in the picture, I got a lot of cat food – both wet and dry. I am so rock ‘n roll with my bike and my cat food.
I have been volunteering a bit at the local bike advocacy group and at a pro bono legal clinic, and I simply wear light summer dresses and throw a cardigan on when I reach my destination to look professional. Much better than having to wear a full suit. As seen in my outfits from yesterday and today below, I realized that I have a lot of knee-length blue dresses – at least 6. I guess if I had to pick a cycling uniform, that would be it :) These are perfect for cycling because they’re very airy but long enough to stay put.
So here’s a very important question: If you were job-free and had all day to do whatever you wanted, what would you do (other than look for a new job, of course)? I’m trying to get out more and do the cool stuff that I always dreamed of doing when I was stuck at my desk. Keep in mind that it must be either free or very inexpensive. Tomorrow I plan on going to the Art Institute, Chicago’s major art museum. Ride my bike there, of course. Take pictures in Grant Park. Maybe get a gelato. Stuff like that. Any other ideas?
