When it rains …

… the dog howls! This entry might as well be called Adventures in Dogsitting, but anyway. Apparently, some dogs do not like thunder. Now I can truly appreciate my fat and happy black Lab snoozing away back home, immune to all sorts of noisy inclement weather, but this particular dog apparently has not adjusted to summer storms in Chicago. Instead, she’d rather convince me that the house is being broken in to whenever there’s a slight rumble in the air. Sheesh.

However, at least this morning’s storm was a great reminder that it’s still summer, folks, and there’s a whole lot more summery things to do. This weekend is the Latin Music Festival and next weekend is the 28th Annual Chicago Jazz Fest.

On Wednesday, I took a stroll through the Chicago Green City Market and then the nearby Lincoln Park Conservatory.

I, personally, have not been so great at getting things done this summer that I wanted to do. I only went swimming once! What everyone else’s “Wish I woulda … ” from their summer to-do lists? Post ’em here, and we at Metroblogging might just be able to come up with a solution. Screw Labor Day–summer doesn’t end until I realize that fall is really pretty. And that damn! it’s too cold to be wearing a tank top!
