Mary Poppins & Indian Fud

There's a cathedral and basilica nearby and one of 'em has a 7:30am alarm chime they like to play on Sundays. Needless to say, we all woke up around 7:30 and then "slooched" for awhile after. "Slooch" is a term Amy & Rachel use to describe the whole being in bed & awake & snoozing time that's just so enjoyable on the weekend. Dad made us all Egg McMikey sandwiches. And around noon, we finally headed out to Nicollett Mall and Macy's (formerly Marshall Field's).

On the 8th floor of the former Mashall Field's, they like to do an animated holiday display each season. This year's animated theme was the novel Mary Poppins (with music from the New York musical based upon the Disney movie). When we went 3 years ago (or so) to see Charlie & the Chocolate Factory there, we'd gone on the Friday after Thanksgiving and waited in line for a LONG time. Today, being further from the holiday, there was NO line. It was quite pleasant. The figurines were cute and the scenes they picked were fun.

On our way back to the apartment, we stopped at New Delhi for Indian Fud. They have a lunch buffet and I promised all that I'd pick up the bill if we went for Indian this weekend. They had a few dishes I'd not had before - egg masala and goat curry. They were good, but the bones (and hoof?) in the goat put me off of finishing it. We all enjoyed our lunch and waddled back to the apartment.

At this point, we all started reading and eventually folks dropped off. We napped for awhile and then spend the rest of the evening just relaxing and drinking wine (or cream soda in my case). We girls played Euchre and mom & I won both games. Go us! We had nachoes with guacamole & salsa for "supper" and finished it off with pie - both apple & pumpkin. I put ice cream *and* whipped cream on my apple pie. Yum!

This has been a fabulous weekend and I'm so happy we were able to join the girls for this time. Thank you Amy & Rachel for being great hosts. Tomorrow we'll have a bit more time together and then finally we fly back home. I'll miss being with the girls, but it will be nice to see my kitties again!
