On Tuesday, I went to Chicago, mostly to deliver cookies for several people in the city. I was surprised and delighted to see that they put up a Christmas tree inside the Palatine train station.
There is way less people n the train that in was in October, but still more than in March and April.
When I came to the office doors, I said two big boxes, and realized that one of our vendors still sent us Christmas chocolates:
That was my only visit to the city this season, so during my lunch break, I met with a friend and we walked to the Macy’s windows and to the Millennium park.
The Macy’s windows are pretty modest this year, but I was still happy that they were out there:
And the tree – I was wearing a t-shirt when they were installing it!
Unfortunately, I could not come inside the ODS – the volunteering is postponed till the end of March. But we agreed that I will bring cookies – and I put together a giant box (and a box of chocolate ornaments.
… I am holding a lot of hopes for next year!
