Art Fair at Dawes Park in Evanston on the lake

The Art Fairs are so small now.  They used to be so fabulous and huge but times have changed and so have they.  It was 91 degrees but there was a strong wind, so it was okay…still HOT though.  I love Lake Michigan with a passion.  She’s MY lake and I just let everyone else use Her 🙂  LOL  Hey, I mean it.

Restaurant in Evanston

We were happy to eat here today because last time we were here everything was delicious.  The changed the menu.  We won’t be eating here again.

Evanston was yarn bombed…

Th tree behind this tree has been bombed as well.There was a yarn bombing in Evanston (a suburb of Chicago).  Parking meters were wrapped, things hanging in trees.  Looks great:)  Love this kind of spontaneous art.

Betty

This is Betty the Tortoise.  She lives at the pet store in Evanston.  She’s 14 years old and has a nice warm bed.  She’s very strong and FAST.  I took a lot of pictures and these were the best of the lot because she’s so quick she’s just a blur and and she NEVER stops moving.

Beautiful rust

Beautiful rustI think this looks beautiful.  It’s lived and it shows it.  There’s something wonderful about these strong steel columns turing colors with age, that I find beautiful.  Aging gracefully, oxidizing as they should.  It will be their death, eventually…weakened and rusted through but right now…they are still strong and lovely.
