Mommy Day 2004
Hey, any occasion highlighted by prime rib (Gale Street!) and ice cream is okay in my book. I kept making involuntary yummy noises during lunch, but really, with steak that good, who could blame me?
Spent Saturday afternoon up to my knees and elbows in the Skokie River (and I use the term "river" loosely, as it's been reduced to a severely channelized stream). We dredged up crawly things from the stream bed and counted them using eyedroppers and ice cube trays (ah, the high-tech trappings of the scientist). I found a leech, lots of caddis fly larvae, bloodworms, and funny little fast-moving scuds. Remind me not to walk barefoot in any streams ever again.
