Da Burbs

I've been having a lovely visit with judiang (and elsaf is also here). This is likely the last visit while she's living in the city. Indeed we were looking at condos in the 'burbs today. First time I've been to Downers Grove since I was wee. Didn't recognize a smidgen.

Anyhoo, on this visit we've had Indian buffet, dim sum, and pub grub at a microbrewery (Reuben, cheddar ale soup, hefeveisen). Elsa had pre-made all of the other meals we've had in order to keep the joint clean for viewings by potential buyers. Arroz con pollo, chicken salad & Gorgonzola roasted red pepper soup, meatloaf (with mashed taters and broccoli), and even individual servings of oatmeal or Special K for breakfast. She also baked pineapple upside-down cake and peach cobbler. Oh, and we just finished pot roast, taters, carrots & onion. Yum!

Entertainment-wise, we've been to see Avenue Q at the Mercury theater. Great show! Also great to see what hergrace had been going on about for years. Nifty that in the cast, the couple who marry are actually married in real life. We also went to see Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday at the Icon. Really fun flick. Tomorrow we intend to see Shakespeare in the park (with Patty). Much Ado About Nothing.

Patty (Judi's Pomeranian) joined us on our condo hunt today and will join us tomorrow because we needed her (and us) out of the flat for viewing (and open house tomorrow). She was very good today tho I missed out on seeing two of the condos in order to dog sit. So Patty and I took walks around the blocks. I suspect she'll sleep well tonight!

I've had a blast so far and figure the rest of the trip will be as well. :-)
