    Canine Commitment #4/52 

    Okay, so this adventure wasn’t on the partial list that I made public in my first post, but it’s something I’d been thinking about for quite a while.  The time was right, opportunity presented itself, and…yes, I adopted a puppy from the SPCA!

    Our nine-week-old addition is slowly but surely becoming acclimated, and I’m becoming used to having a “baby” in the house again – although I could do without these midnight trips to the backyard :-\  Lots of plans for my future hiking/camping buddy!

      SO cute! Good luck with your new adventure buddy!

      What an adventure! He is adorable! Thank you for going to the SPCA, too!

      Puppies are fun and the waking up doesn’t last forever. I’ve been fostering two puppies for a local shelter the last three weeks and I don’t know if I’ll be able to give them up. The reason I took them is after finding this website and realized that life is too short. Sometimes you have to be spontaneous and just do it. And it doesn’t matter what that is. I think we all really do regret the things we haven’t done.

      Update on my “little girl”: she’s an early waker (sigh) but she keeps her crate dry. A very sweet girl, and she went for her first swim yesterday – jumped in the lake and loved it! That’s my little retriever : )

    Hi, adventurers! 

    Forgive me, I’m still figuring out how to use WordPress. 

    I’m excited about my newest idea for an adventure, so even though we’re supposed to post AFTER the fact, I’m sharing it first– I’m going to try and go to every Farmer’s Market in the Chicago area next week!  The list of daily markets was featured in the Red Eye recently, and I was trying to figure out which ones would be easiest for me to get to, when I thought….why not try and go to all of them?  Not this week, because it’s very busy for me, but next week I could attempt it.  Seems most of the markets are open from 7am-3pm, and I’d be able to figure out which ones I’m interested in returning to in the future.  I’m kicking off the week by attending the Eco-Fair at Navy Pier next Sunday, so this will be a good theme. (In addition to using whatever I buy for fresh nightly dinners!)

    I still need to come up with an adventure for THIS week.

    Thanks for reading this!   🙂

      EEK!! I just looked again, and most of these markets don’t seem to begin until the 2nd week in June!! I don’t want to just visit a couple, the point was to try and go nuts hitting them all in a week. So I guess this will be delayed until further notice…. thanks for reading anyway 🙂

      BUT this will be a GREAT adventure for the coming weeks!
      You are so creative and lovely – I have no doubt you’ll think up something spicy for this coming week 🙂
