ten on ten : february 2013

Ten on ten was a challenge for me today because I’m feeling totally uninspired and pessimistic lately, almost entirely on account of the disgusting Chicago weather that is typical this time of year. Growing up in Minnesota, winters were cold but at least the sun shone on a regular basis. In Chicago, the sun basically packs up and leaves, not to return until springtime comes. Triple BLAH. I’m beginning to understand the people who ask why anyone takes up residence in this area of the country. Here is my best effort at ten pictures, one every hour, on yet another day full of gloom here in the windy city. [Side note: it was a bit of an unconventional Sunday for us, because we went to our church’s Saturday night service last night. It made for a nice relaxing morning together, which I was thankful to have, in spite of the terrible weather.]
