Good morning everyone. Since I made the mistake of scheduling my TTT post for Monday this week I decided to write my Monday Morning Check-In post on Tuesday. It has nothing to do with the fact that I was busy yesterday morning. Nope. Not at all.
Anyway… Not a lot of reading going on at the moment. We are leaving in next week for a vacation to Chicago and I have been busy getting the yard, animals, and house ready for our absence. I did manage to start The Devil in the White City audiobook which is about a mass murderer in Chicago around the same time as the World’s Fair of 1893. I was a little leery about this book as I’m not a huge fan of historical reads or non-fiction but I have to confess I’m hooked! Not a fan of the sections about the serial killer but the sections about the world fair are fascinating. Husband and I plan on visiting Jackson and Hyde Park while in Chicago next week and I can’t wait to explore the grounds that once held the fair. I also want to go to Navy Pier, a place I usually steer clear of now, to ride the Ferris Wheel. It will mean so much more now that I know how the first one was for the 1893 Fair. Should be fun.
Next Monday I won’t have a check-in post or a Wednesday post as we are going to be gone. If you want to see pictures of our trip follow my personal Instagram account: amyjoiowa.
Have a great week!
