Day Is Done
We live in Chicago, a town Mother Nature hates. She pours down snow and frigid air during a winter that lasts for month after horrible month. There's a small break in July, and then she resumes her evil ways.
Today, however, was 55 degrees. There was abundant sunshine and gentle breezes. Coats were forgotten. People and pets were outdoors and grinning like mad. Pick-up games broke out across the neighborhood.
It was the kind of day that makes it possible to survive the unholy season of winter.
Charlie was strolling the trails this evening and snapped this send-off. A day gift-wrapped in pinks and yellows and blues.
