We're not going to Joliet IL but I liked seeing their Union Station from the train last month. Click the image to view the website on their handsome 1912 station.

It’s the end of the week so here’s some good news: it’ll be warmer than usual this weekend! With the cold winter weather it has been too ugly to do much outside.

Tomorrow my husband and I are taking a day trip. I’ve posted before about previous trips:

Our trip tomorrow involves driving the back roads in two counties in Illinois with stops in two small towns, to protect our privacy I’m not going to be specific ahead of time.  We’re intentionally avoiding interstate highways on the way out, we may use a highway to return.  But I might find alternate back roads.

The lunch place I have picked out is 43-45 miles away from our downtown loft, depending on which of the three back road routes we pick. Taking interstate most of the way is 42-44 miles. The two interstate routes would be faster; 41-49 minutes vs 58-61 minutes on the back roads.  It’ll be a nice day and we won’t be in a hurry, unfamiliar back roads are always more interesting than familiar interstate highways.

Please get out and make the most of this weekend!

    “To protect your privacy” . . . . just gotta smile! What are you expecting? Groupies?!

     
    • I’ve been doing this over a decade now, I love when people approach me at random on the street or in restaurants, but I’d rather not disclose our plans in advance.
