Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

Pink & Yellow

Each week Cee challenges us to share photos based on an inspiring prompt. This week we’re challenged to share photos with orange and/or green in them, hence the photos above that I took last weekend at a laundromat in Chicago.

Which Way Challenge

St Paul’s Catholic Church, Pilsen, Chicago

The Which Way Challenge, that Cee began, has been picked up by the Alive and Trekking blogger.  The beauty of it is that it’s free form.

You can include images of doors, gates, roads, streets, exits, signs, paths, waterways, canals, railroad tracks, you name it.

Weekend Coffee Share

wordswag_15073188796611453091488Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

If I were having coffee with you this weekend, I’d tell you I took a former student from China to Pilsen so she could see the vibrant murals and have some Latin food.

Pilsen

This year I’ve been to Pilsen three times. Prior to 2019, I’d never been there. We saw lots of murals, some I’d never seen.

There are easily hundreds. We went to 5 Rabinitos, which was packed.

St. Paul’s

Then we headed to St. Paul’s Catholic Church, but it was locked up. Too bad. We wanted to go to the National Museum of Mexican Art but the line was way down the block and probably would take over an hour to get through. Their Dia de los Muertos exhibit goes till January so I’ll return.

On Monday I attended the Library Board Meeting. At times it was uplifting such as when people spoke up about how much they cared about the library or libraries in general. I agree with the man at the end of the video above that we have lost a lot of cultural institutions. Some change is needed, but how much and what kind?

The board voted to spend $15,000 on a heated sidewalk, which didn’t sit well with many in attendance, who’re more concerned with the fact that 22 out of 43 people have left this year. In November all but one Youth Librarian will remain.

I saw Remorquers, a French film with Jean Gabin, which was decent, but not one I’d insist you see.
