South of the University of Illinois Arboretum I came upon this most excellent climbing tree. (A couple of those branches are dead, so be careful.) Sharing to remember it’s precise location.
In a shaker mix with ice:
4 parts cheap gin
1 part cheap triple sec
1 splash cranberry juice concentrate
Shake until cold, pour over ice, top with grapefruit juice.
Sharing my lawn chair with a handsome jumping spider.
You can’t see it, but a Green Heron just flew into that tallest tree across the pond.
My buff is at the ready, just in case I need to pull it up to serve as a faux mask for virtue-signaling purposes.
Also seen on today’s walk: Toad friend. Is he not a handsome fellow?
Seen on today’s walk so far: Green Heron, Common Yellowthroat, Goldfinch.
After days not running because of a sore foot and crappy weather, I got out today—and then back indoors just ahead of the rain. #PolarBeat
There was just a little bit of coffee left in the flask, so I got one of our really little cups to drink it out of. 📷 ☕️
Working on not missing so many sunrises. 📷
My sourdough bread is always delicious, but this loaf came out especially photogenic as well. 🍞
