meandering in the 'Burbs

Today was lovely. Hopped in my jalopy and drove around the Chicago suburbs. Stumbled upon this cute little town called Itasca, where you can catch the Metra to Union Station. Ate at a cute little diner called Daddy O's, where I filled up on delicious greasy diner food and that silently enjoyed the world's-my-oyster feeling that always creeps over me on days off. I love days off.

Found my way to the Itasca Library today. Awesome little library, very well organized and tidy. Snagged a couple of their kids and teen booklists--suggested reading lists are always a helpful thing for us to see, for when we're feeling uninspired. 

Farmers Market nom nom for lunch!
Found my favorite flowers at the Farmers Market this morning
Next I found a Farmers Market in Schaumburg. The city, as well as the FM, were bustling. This is what I bought. 

Today has been grand. Already feeling eight million times more rejuvenated. Now off for some more of those sweet tomatoes and a book. 

Happy weekend all!
