We've had quite a weekend of comings and goings here in Chicago. My sister and niece arrived on Friday morning (on "the train they call The City of New Orleans") and left yesterday evening. I had a great time showing them Chicago, as you may have noticed from the Segway video. Meanwhile, on Sunday afternoon, a group of sisters from the Boston publishing house came in. They're in the area for a religious booksellers conference/trade show. So we had a full house and lots of laughs. We were hoping to have enjoyed a picnic with the Boston sisters at Millennium Park, but today's weather is more mid-November than late May.
Then Sr Lusia remembered that we were supposed to take a community photo ("official") for the provincial archives. No sooner had the Boston crew departed to set up their exhibit than we pulled ourselves into somewhat official formation to document ourselves. (I am holding a book about the Archdiocese of Chicago in case future historians want to know where this momentous gathering of souls took place.)
The Boston sisters? They'll be back on Friday to start the return drive to Beantown.
