Up early this morning to catch the train to Chicago. As with the last time we took Amtrak, the train was on time leaving the station here in Michigan, but ran into heavy freight traffic on the way into the city. We arrived about an hour and a half late, but that's no big deal. We didn't have any connections to make, and except for being somewhat hungry, we were in good shape.
Being hungry was taken care of by lunch, and the rest of the day followed a familiar pattern. We stopped by a grocery store near the hotel for supplies, then headed back to our room where I took a nap while queenmomcat did some editing work. Later on, we went down to the Loop to buy good cheeses at Pastorale again, including some as a gift for our hosts for Thanksgiving. Then it was on to dinner, and finally back to the hotel, where I'm thinking of taking an early bedtime. Busy day tomorrow, what with an opera and all.
