Things I see

Walked through my old neighborhood this afternoon, and passed by the cement plant. I used to walk by it every day, but never from this angle. It felt strange to see it from the back.


Here's the little pair of antlers that I got in Bavaria:


And finally, here is the day-early birthday present I got for myself today. Because I needed them:


They're not as bulky as my other pair, and they have ventilation holes on the sides too, which is nice.

It was 26° F (-3.3° C) here today, but the sun was out and there was no wind. I had set out in my thick wool coat and enormous fur hat but had to take the hat off after a bit because it was just too warm.

I sifted through a bunch of neat old junk over at the Salvation Army thrift store near Grand and Halstead. They have a room dedicated to older, more interesting junk than your average run-of-the-mill junk. Stuff that's maybe not good enough to be sold at an antique store, but still interesting in it's own right. I didn't buy any old junk today, though. Just the new kind ;)
