a. stacked and unstacked chairs to help the charity My Very Own Book host Touch-a-Truck, a cool fund-raiser in which kids get to sit in and touch vehicles ranging from dump trucks to electric cars.
b. ate vegan food at the Loving Hut, a vegan cafe that promises it is a "an accessible starting point for those making the noble transition to a plant-based diet". I remain an omnivore, but the lemon-grass soy was very good.
c. took pictures of house finches, a red-bellied woodpecker, mallard ducks and eastern bluebirds at Breckinridge Park, and a scissortail flycatcher at Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.
d. ate quiche at Mimi's cafe chain restaurant.
