Mom and her friend Ruth came to visit me today. We spent the dame shopping in Lincoln Park. We picked up this cute frosted candle holder at the Crate & Barrel outlet. I like the little bird on it. The visit ended with dinner at Uncle Julio’s on Clybourne. Unfortunately, the shopping pretty much tired me out completely. I’m still fighting off something so I came back and took a two-hour nap. I had plans to go out later that night but I had to pass because I was so exhausted.
