Weather Changes

I feel like being both productive and unproductive at once. So I paint my nails and blog?

It's been unusually warm the past few days in Chicago. Last weekend, after my piano lesson and hunting down Hegel's "Introduction to the Philosophy of History" at the Seminary Co-op Bookstore (who else has 25 copies lying around on the shelves?), Mordecai and I visited the unfrozen lake. There were lots of people out and about, particularly with babies and dogs. I wondered if the dogs were confused by their owners suddenly wanting to go on extra walks. Do they notice big weather changes and care like we do?


This past Tuesday it was 60+ degrees (15+ Celcius) and jackets were unnecessary. I forgot my cell phone in my parents' car on Monday night, so we went to pick it up and let Oji out.



One of these days I am going to have to photograph his snaggle-tooth face. His lips (?) get caught on his fangs and he looks...special, let's just say.

I love that "peace sign by the lake" photo. Please, please, please convince the nice weather to stay through next weekend.

See you guys soon!

Yes they do, dogs are sensitive in any changes in weather pattern as well as other animals too. It seems Global Warming is in effect, isn't it or is it something more than that, a perturbation maybe from an approaching celestial object in which higher authorities doesn't want ordinary people like us to know.

You be the judge! Take care always! God Bless!
