A Low-Key Day On Our Trip

Today has been truly relaxing. Ray and I sleep late, had a leisurely breakfast, and hung out all day, doing pretty much nothing. This is in huge contrast to how we have both been spending our time over the past several weeks. We ordered Thai food for dinner with our friend and then sat and watched multiple episodes on Hulu of a vampire mockumentary (yes, odd but true) called “What We Do in the Shadows.” This Emmy nominated series was created by Jemaine Clement from “Flight of the Conchords” and is based on the movie of the same name that was co-written by Clement and Taika Waititi of “JoJo Rabbit” fame. Waititi is a co-writer on the series as well. The story revolves around four vampires who are roommates on Staten Island, and it is silly, irreverent, and oddly socially relevant. It also makes a lot of fun of itself, which adds to its charm.

Tomorrow, we’ll spend the day at the Chicago Institute of Art. Ray and I are both very excited about that. We’ll head into Chicago on the train in the morning and return in the evening. Our friend will join us for part of the day.

Heading to bed now so we’ll be ready for our big art day!

Here’s a trailer from the tv series we were watching for any who might be interested.

Talk again tomorrow.

    Len, I can’t believe you! You are in one of the country’s most exciting cities and you’re watching a movie on TV! and “hanging out.” Girl, get yourself to the architectural river tour or one of the city’s fabulous restaurants or walk along one of the beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan. Okay, I know you’re tired, but you’re breaking this Chicago girl’s heart.

    1. Heading out bright and early this morning, Judy. Never fear. Not coming back until after dark!

    I love a good FORCED QUIT! I recommend them periodically, unsure why I’m the hardest one to convince! (I mean a day every now and again to remember who we are? Let’s take two!! haha). I sometimes wish I could do more of them at home. With my hubby out on the boat with a buddy tonight, I’m eyeing the 2002 movie”The Hours” with Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, and some other big names, on Netflix. I’m interested to see how the women’s lives connect through Virginia Woolf’s, Mrs. Dalloway. Hope you’re having a great day, Len and Ray!
