“I think that's how Chicago got started. A bunch of people in New York said, 'Gee, I'm enjoying the crime and the poverty, but it just isn't cold enough, let's go west.'”
truly one of my all-time favorite quotes.
as evidenced above, we've had the grumpies off and on this morning, but i've got a black bean soup simmering on the stove, and pieces of patty's fabric cut out and waiting to be stitched together into something vibrant and darling and fabulous (i hope). we'll trek out to the library after school, but for now it's nice to be warm and indoors with a day full of good things stretching out before me.
