When I walked into my office on Wednesday, there was a plastic shopping bag on my chair. Several hours later, after the bomb squad left , I sorted through the 8 wonderful new (to me) ties that had been given to me. Joe Smith, of JAS Financial Services, is a GWT alum (he was a PWT, actually, during the 100th TieDay celebrations) who had mentioned his previous tie collection. Alas, he had given away the bulk of it, but apparently he had saved some good ones, which will now be a part of the extended 100 Days, 100 Ties project. Many thanks, Joe!

So, I wasted no time in getting to Joe’s ties. My Tie du Jour is a gray-on-gray strip from Kenneth Cole, and I made it a part of a quasi-fall preview ensemble. Despite having 2 weeks left of summer, according to the calendar, we had highs that barely reached 70 the past 2 days. My black-t0-gray outfit (complete with vest!) was slightly to the casual side, but I thought I could get away with it, since I had Julia with me for the morning. Yes, only 3 days after the Labor Day holiday, our school district was off for Rosh Hashanah on Thursday.

So, our short week gets turned into two shorter ones. Should be a busy-ish weekend: friend’s cabaret band tonight down in the city; Northwestern takes on mighty Illinois State tomorrow to pad their offensive stats; a nap, if the nap gods are kind; out with the Reinharts who remain in town; then a lazy Sunday morning followed by Julia’s first regular season Team Evanston White soccer match. Sunday night is wide open.

Oh, and if anyone knows of anyone looking for a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with GREAT neighbors, let me know. There is a unit available here in my building, on the 2nd floor.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
